The Elite Group B match of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2020-21 will be played between Tamil Nadu and Vidarbha on 28th February at the Emerald High School Ground in Indore.
The match is scheduled to start at 9:00 AM local time and IST. The match will be streamed live on Star Sports Network and Disney+Hotstar.
Tamil Nadu will face Vidarbha in the Elite B Group match of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021 on Sunday. Tamil Nadu are placed third on the Group B points table, having won two matches out of four played so far. On the other hand, Vidarbha are at the bottom of the points table with just one win so far.
Tamil Nadu had a convincing win over Jharkhand in their last match and will be looking to carry the momentum in this game as well. Vidarbha are struggling in their bowling department, as they were unable to defend targets set by their batsmen in three matches so far in the tournament. Tamil Nadu will be favourites going into this match but a comeback by Vidarbha cannot be ruled out of the equation, as they do have some quality players in their team.
