The Elite C Group match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021 will be played between Baroda and Gujarat at F.B Colony Ground, Vadodara.
The match is scheduled to start at 12:00 PM local time and IST on January 18th.
Despite numerous hurdles in their path, Baroda have won all of their games and are sitting at the top of their group. While the absence of Krunal Pandya can be crucial, given their red hot form, it seems unlikely that they can be stopped at the moment.
Just behind Baroda are their next opposition Gujarat. Gujarat too have been very impressive in this competition, but unlike Baroda, they are not unbeaten and had to suffer a defeat against Himachal Pradesh. This game is of a matter of survival for them.
