The final match of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2020-21 will be played between Uttar Pradesh and Mumbai on 14th March at Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.
The match is scheduled to start at 9:00 AM local time and IST.
Uttar Pradesh will be up against Mumbai in the final match of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2020-21 on Sunday. Uttar Pradesh are playing their second final in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. In the last time they qualified for the finals, Uttar Pradesh lost to Railways. This will be an excellent opportunity for them to win their maiden title. They entered this year’s final by beating two giant teams Delhi and Gujarat in the quarter-final and semi-final respectively. A lot of credit should go to their batsmen, especially Upendra Yadav, Karan Sharma and Akshdeep Nath.
Meanwhile, the three-time champions Mumbai are aiming to win their fourth title. After suffering heartbreak in the Syed Mushtaq Ali, they made a Pheonix-esque comeback and haven’t lost a single match in this tournament, which shows why they are one of the most dangerous teams in the country. They dominated the opposition in all the matches. Prithvi Shaw is in impeccable form at the moment and there is no stopping him in this tournament. Even their bowlers are backing up the batsmen really well.
