The Elite D Group match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021 will be played between Rajasthan and Saurashtra at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore.
This match is scheduled to start at 07:00 PM Local Time and IST.
Things will go right done the wire at the Elite Group D, as the last game of the group stage will decide who will progress into the next round of this competition. Rajasthan and Saurashtra, two evenly-matched teams both in terms of squad strength and points, will lock horns here at the Holkar Cricket Stadium.
Both Saurashtra and Rajasthan have won 3 of their 4 games. While Saurashtra are currently placed at the first position of their group because of a better net run rate, none of that will matter when the teams take the field today. While today’s winners will advance to the knockouts, the losers will have to pack their bags and take the long route home.
