The Elite C Group match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021 will be played between Baroda and Himachal Pradesh at the Moti Bagh Stadium in Vadodara.
This match is scheduled to start at 12:00 PM Local Time and IST.
Gujarat have got themselves to a brilliant start in the 2021 edition of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. They have won both of their opening games and can be considered as a title-contender. In their first game, Gujarat defeated Maharashtra, while they thrashed Uttarakhand in the second game.
Their next opposition, Himachal Pradesh also had a decent start to their season as they defeated Chattisgarh in their first game. However, the joy was shortlived as Baroda got the better of them just a couple of days later. They will be aiming to get back to winning ways, but Gujarat is arguably the toughest opponent to beat from their group.
