The Elite D Group match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021 will be played between Rajasthan and Vidarbha at Holkar Cricket Ground, Indore on Monday.
This match is scheduled to start at 07:00 PM Local Time and IST.
Both Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh were once in a spot of bother in their respective season-openers, but they have managed to hold their nerves and get over the line. The former was involved in a low-scoring thriller against Vidarbha. Rajasthan bowled Vidarbha out for only 104 but were then reduced to 98/7.
Thanks to Arjit Gupta and Deepak Chakar, they managed to get over the line. On the other hand, Madhya Pradesh were involved in a high-scoring affair. They scored 214 runs against Goa, but their opposition also batted brilliantly. Goa once looked set for victory, but they eventually were just 6 runs shy of the target. Both teams will now look to make it two wins in a row.
