Delhi and Haryana will go one on one against each other in the Elite E Group match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021 on Sunday. Both the teams are battling for the top spot and it will be a crucial match for both sides. After 2 successive wins against Mumbai and Andhra, Delhi lost a trick in their 3rd match and got outplayed by Kerala, which made them push down to the 3rd spot in the standings with 8 points and having a net run-rate of 1.579.
Even after scoring 212 runs, their bowlers couldn’t defend the target against Kerala and they need to address this issue and come with a better plan in the remaining matches. Skipper Shikhar Dhawan has returned to form which is a good sign for them. On the other hand, Haryana has won all their 3 matches played in this tournament and currently are at the 2nd spot in the standings with 12 points.
Bowling has been their biggest strength and they have not conceded 150 plus runs in 3 matches. They have got strong bowling line-up with the likes of Mohit Sharma, Jayant Yadav, and Yuzvendra Chahal. Their batting has mainly relied upon Himanshu Rana and Shivam Chauhan. It’s going to be a good contest as both the teams are aiming for the top spot.
