Himachal Pradesh and Maharashtra will square off in an Elite Group C game in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021 at the Moti Bagh Stadium in Vadodara. This is the final group-stage game in this season’s Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy for both teams.
Himachal Pradesh have won three of their four Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy games so far, with their only loss coming against Baroda in a low-scoring affair.
Rishi Dhawan’ men will be in the hunt for the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy knockouts if they win this game. However, Himachal Pradesh need to win by a massive margin to qualify for the knockouts, and they will also need to keep an eye on the Baroda-Gujarat game too.
Meanwhile, this is a dead rubber for Maharashtra. However, the Ruturaj Gaikwad-led side will want to end their campaign on a high after losing three of their four games in the tournament. Their only win came against Chhattisgarh in a last-ball thriller, where they hunted down 193 runs.
