Delhi square off against Uttarakhand in this high-voltage preliminary Vijay Hazare quarter-final. The List-A matches in India have always provided a perfect platform for all the young, budding cricketers and veteran cricketers of India to prove a point and make it to the national team. Thus, it will be critical for all to bring out their A game.
Delhi were outstanding in the group stage matches and finished 2nd in the table. They had 4 wins in 5 matches and finished behind table-toppers Mumbai.

Picking up 9 wickets in 5 matches, Simarjeet Singh was the highest wicket-taker of Delhi in the group-stage.
