The third quarter-final of the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy will see Delhi locking horns with Uttar Pradesh. Both the teams have equal firepower in their arsenal and are hot favorites to emerge onto the next round. The match will take place at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. The match is slated to begin at 9:00 AM (IST).
In the pre-quarter-final against Uttarakhand, Delhi scripted a fabulous victory. Delhi were reeling at a precarious position; they were 146/6, Anuj Rawat and Pradeep Sangwan constructed a special partnership to take Delhi home. While Rawat was unbeaten on 95, Sangwan scored a blistering unbeaten 58. Delhi would be high on confidence and will be a tough side to beat.
Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh finished second in the rankings in Group C. They were led by Karnataka, which had better net run rate. Captained by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who is staging a comeback after a thigh muscle injury, Uttar Pradesh have been quite prolific in the entire tournament. In the last game against Odisha, Shivam Sharma spun a web and bamboozled all the batsmen, after he picked up 6 wickets. Chasing a meagre 149, UP batsmen contributed in equal measures to finish off the league stage on a winning note.
