The Elite C Group match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021 will be played between Baroda and Maharashtra at the Moti Bagh Stadium in Vadodara.
This match is scheduled to start at 12:00 PM Local Time and IST.
With the group stages of the 2021 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy coming to a conclusion, it is looking extremely likely that Baroda will top the Elite Group C. They have won all of their 3 games and are occupying the top spot as of now. With that being said, Gujarat are breathing down their neck and also have a better net run rate.
Hence, Krunal Pandya & Co. will have to keep complacency at bay when they will take on Maharashtra tomorrow. Maharashtra have been very inconsistent, having won one and lost two of their remaining games. They will have to win both of their remaining games and then wait for miracles to happen.
