After battling it out in their respective quarter-finals, Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat draw swords against each other in this high-octane semi-final. The semi-finals are just one step away from the elusive finals and all teams will be on their toes and will be looking to play some good, competitive cricket.
Uttar Pradesh have been in belligerent form in this year’s Vijay Hazare Trophy. They had won 4 games in the league stage and are now coming on the back off a quarter-final victory against big-guns Delhi. However, they will be without the services of their captain, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who is away on national duty. Stand-in skipper Karan Sharma scored a brilliant 83 and keeper-batsman Upendra Yadav scored a powerful 112 in the previous game. These two will most certainly be hot-picks.
Gujarat’s thumping 117-run victory in the quarter finals against Andhra Pradesh has made them a force to reckon with. They certainly have got the ingredients of scripting a victory in this match. Skipper Priyank Panchal’s century and spinner Piyush Chawla picked up 3 wickets to set up the victory for Gujarat. Gujaratis are simply ruling the world of cricket at the present moment! They are unbeaten in the entire tournament.
