The Round 5 game of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019-20 Elite Group C will be played between Gujarat and Tripura at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.
The match starts at 9:00 AM local time (IST); 3:30 AM (GMT).
Gujarat has been on quite a roll so far in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019-20. With Parthiv Patel leading from the front, they have bagged two wins in two games. As they square off against Tripura for their upcoming encounter, they will want to make it a hattrick and move further up the points table. However, Tripura has impressed with a couple of strong performances in the tournament so far.
After wins in their first two games, they fell short in the last match against Services. Thus, it is essential for them to bounce back and gain some momentum back quickly. Despite them being at the second position in the points table, Tripura’s batting performances haven’t been really convincing. That is one area they should focus on before they take the field for the upcoming battle. At least a couple of their batsmen should look to anchor and play the long innings.
Rain is expected in Jaipur on Monday. The skies are predicted to be cloudy till at least 3 PM in the afternoon and rain might interrupt in between. Since the chances of precipitation aren’t really high, we might get to witness a shortened encounter.
The Sawai Mansingh Stadium has produced some excellent batting surfaces for this tournament. The ball comes on to the bat nicely and the batsmen can play their shots freely. However, chasing seems to get extremely difficult at this venue. The sides chasing have lost three games in a row at this venue.
Average first innings score: 288 (Last 4 VHT 2019-20 matches at this venue)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 1, Lost – 3, Tied – 0

Parthiv Patel looked to be in fine touch in the last match and scored 90 runs. He will be one of the top picks for your Dream11 Fantasy team. M Juneja, B Merai and B Ghosh have performed quite consistently and you can go with the same combination for both the sides. R Kalaria amongst the bowlers, P Chawla and M Murasingh amongst the all-rounders are worthy picks.

Tanmay Mishra has been in great form. He scored a century and a half-century in the last two games that he played. But the Dream11 app doesn’t show his name. If he is available while you are picking your team, you can opt for him instead of one of the all-rounders and even have him as a multiplier.
Gujarat is expected to win this game.
