Vijay Hazare Trophy: VID vs HIM Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI, Pitch Report, Team And Preview


Reigning Ranji Trophy champions, Vidarbha were on the wrong side of a Karan Kaila four fer against Punjab. With time running out for them, they face off against Himachal Pradesh on Monday with two valuable points on offer. With Umesh Yadav currently in the India squad, a relatively inexperienced and spin-heavy bowling unit is key to the fortunes of Vidarbha although the experience of Wasim Jaffer gives them the favorites tag. Himachal Pradesh is at the bottom of the table right now with no wins in four games although most of them were washed out. With an India A regular in Prashant Chopra in their ranks, Himachal Pradesh isn’t to be considered too lightly heading into this game.

Mostly sunny weather with no chances of rain and the temperature ranging around 32 degrees Celsius is expected during the course of the game.

Pitch Report:

The pitch should favour strokeplay although spin will play a major part as the game progresses. Batting first upon winning the toss would be the ideal option with some swing on offer in the latter half of the match.

Predicted Playing XI: 

Himachal Pradesh:

Prashant Chopra and Ankush Bains have a stern test ahead of them with the duo anointed with the responsibility of leading the side to a win. They have a balanced side in their ranks with Rishi Dhawan providing the balance with his medium pace. KXIP spinner, Mayank Dagar is also one to watch out for along with Ankit Kalsi, who is in decent form for HP over the last year or so.
Ankush Bains, Prashant Chopra, Ankit Kalsi, Nikhil Gangta, Rishi Dhawan, Amit Kumar, Pankaj Jaiswal, Mayank Dagar, Ankit Maini, Ayush Jamwal, Kanwar Abhinay Singh


Vidarbha shouldn’t be making any changes inspite of a tough loss to Punjab. Better performances are expected from the likes of Faiz Fazal and Wasim Jaffer. Young, Atharva Taide has also done well in recent matches and will be key to their fortunes. With their arsenal of spinners in their ranks and given the nature of the pitch, Vidarbha should fancy their chances for this game.
Faiz Fazal, Wasim Jaffer, Jitesh Sharma, Atharwa Taide, Ganesh Satish, Aditya Sarwate, Rushabh Rathod, Akshay Wakhare, Shrikant Wagh, Akshay Wakhare and Yash Thakur

Top Picks: 

Prashant Chopra is an India A regular and has proved himself against the likes of South Africa A and Sri Lanka A as well. The Rajasthan Royals player should be one of the first names along with Rishi Dhawan and Faiz Fazal, Atharva Taide’s all-round abilities makes him a great asset alongside Nikhil Gangta. Ankush Bains did get off to a start against Orissa but needs to convert them on Monday while the likes of Mayank Dagar and Yash Thakur should suffice in rounding off the fantasy team.
