The Elite E Group match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021 will be played between Andhra Pradesh and Puducherry at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
This match is scheduled to start at 07:00 PM IST and local time. It will be streamed live on FanCode.
Both Andhra and Puducherry are in a spot of bother right now, as they have started their campaigns with two consecutive defeats. Andhra lost against Haryana in their first match, while they were no match to the mighty Delhi side in their second game.
On the other hand, Puducherry have suffered defeats against Kerala and Haryana. Though both camps will be disappointed, the sense of disappointment will be more profound in the Andhra camp, given that they have a stronger squad on paper. This game is extremely crucial to both teams, as it provides them with an opportunity to turn things around.
