Mumbai and Saurashtra draw swords against each other in the fourth and last quarterfinal of the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy. While Saurashtra finished as table-toppers of Group E, Mumbai finished as table toppers of Group D. This certainly calls for some exciting action. The match will be taking place at the Palam A Stadium in Delhi. The stadium is the home ground of the Services team.
Saurashtra ended up with 16 points from 5 matches in the group stage. They would have won all their matches if not for the loss against Services in their last group-stage game. Even though skipper Jaydev Unadkat picked up 3 wickets in the game, Saurashtra could not chase down the humongous total of 302 set by Services. Chirag Jani scored a fabulous 68 but unfortunately that went in vain.
Mumbai have always been a huge juggernaut in the Indian domestic circuit. This year too, they have been in exceptional form in the ongoing tournament. They have scripted 5 wins in 5 games and have top-class momentum as they go into the quarterfinal. In their last game against Himachal Pradesh, Mumbai defeated them by a humongous 200 runs. Suryakumar Yadav scored 91 in that game. But Suryakumar Yadav and Shreyas Iyer will not be available for this game as they have national commitments. This certainly will be a big blow but Mumbai have a lot of other quality players in their ranks who can fill up that void.
