The Elite E Group match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021 will be played between Kerala and Mumbai, at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
The match is scheduled to start at 7:00 PM local time and IST.
A match with the strong Delhi side was always going to be difficult, but the manner in which Mumbai lost was not many saw coming. Their bowling attack was poor, while their batting unit was even worse. After a 76-run defeat in their first match, Mumbai will take on Kerala for their second game.
The Keralites are coming into this game on the back of a win. They defeated Puducherry in their first game by 6 wickets. Their batting unit looked a bit shaky, but thanks to their bowlers, Kerala have started their competition with a win. While momentum will be on Kerala’s side, it is difficult to overlook Mumbai’s incredible strength on paper.

Shivan Dube was the only Mumbai batsman who managed to cope up with everything the Delhi bowlers threw at him. He scored a brilliant 63 from just 42 deliveries.
Jalaj Saxena’s batting skills were
not required in the last game, but his bowling helped Kerela restrict Puducherry to under 140. He picked up 3 wickets and conceded only 13 runs.
Mumbai skipper Suryakumar Yadav might have scored only 7 in the last game, but he is just 1 run shy from reaching 3500 runs landmark in T20 cricket. Yadav has 19 half-centuries in T20s and can be lethal on his day.
