MAH vs MUM Dream11 Prediction
Ranji Trophy, 2018| Maharashtra vs Mumbai, Round 05, Elite Group A| MAH vs MUM Who Will Win
The Big Picture
As the caravan of the 2018-19 Ranji Trophy rolls on, Maharashtra will square off against Mumbai as both sides aim to revive their fledgeling campaign.
Lacklustre Mumbai & Maharashtra eye maiden win
Both Mumbai and Maharashtra are yet to register a win in their 2018 campaign and they come into this game with their backs firmly against the wall after having suffered a chastening defeat in their last fixtures.
While Mumbai suffered a nine-wicket shellacking against Gujarat at home, Maharashtra, too suffered the same fate thanks to a seven-wicket drubbing at the hands of Karnataka.
Both sides are reeling due to sub-par performances of their top-order. While Shivam Dubey, who is having a dream season thus far (364 runs & 12 wickets), was the lone scorer for Mumbai, Ruturaj Gaikwad (89) did the same for Maharastra.
Mumbai has received a further jolt with regular skipper Dhawal Kulkarni not available for selection due to a swollen ankle. Kulkarni’s injury means that Mumbai will be led by middle-order batsman Siddhesh Lad.
The selectors have also dropped out-of-form opener Akhil Herwadkar after he managed to score a mere 101 runs at an average of 16.83 in the ongoing season. Herwadkar jas been replaced by Bhupen Lalwani while pacer Ninad Manjerekar is set to replace pacer Tushar Deshpande, who will be out for a month due to injury.

MAH vs MUM Dream11 Team
Batters- Siddhesh Lad [280 runs at 46.66] and Suryakumar Yadav [213 runs at 42.60] have been the lynchpins of Mumbai’s fledgeling unit while Naushad Shaikh [200 runs at 50.00] and Rahul Tripathi are safe bets from Maharashtra.
The wildcard for Grand League- Armaan Jaffer
Wicket-Keeper- Aditya Tare has been in good form thus, having scored 191 runs at an average of 47.75. He is a safe bet for the wicket-keeper’s slot.
All-rounders- Shivam Dubey is having a dream season. With 364 runs and 12 wickets, he has been the lone shining light in an otherwise disappointing season for Mumbai. Maharashtra’s Chirag Khurana [199 runs, 5 wickets] is another good choice for your Dream11 team.
Bowlers- Satyajeet Bacchav, with 16 wickets, will spearhead the bowling unit with the likes of Anupam Sanklecha [8 wickets], and Samad Fallah will play the supporting role.
