Vijay Hazare Trophy, 2018
Mumbai vs Himachal Pradesh, Round 08, Elite Group A
As the caravan of the 2018-19 Vijay Hazare Trophy rolls on, Himachal Pradesh will take on Mumbai in the Round 8, Elite Group A encounter on Sunday.
Venue:- KSCA Cricket (3) Ground, Alur
Match Timings:- Sunday, September 30, 2018, 09:00 AM IST
Mumbai comes into this encounter on the back of three successive victories and at the time of writing, is currently involved in a tussle with Punjab at Bengaluru. Mumbai’s charge in the first three games was laid by Prithwi Shaw, skipper Ajinkya Rahane and Shreyas Iyer. With all three of them unavailable due to India duties, Jay Gokul Bista (68) and Akhil Herwadkar (32) put on a gritty 75-run stand for the first wicket. Siddhesh Lad (35) and Suryakumar Yadav (31) consolidated the innings but no one could kick on and post a substantial score as the middle-order capitulated resulting in a sub-par total of 245.
They’ll face Himachal Pradesh, who come into this encounter on the back of three back-to-back wins. Their last completed game against Vidarbha resulted in a four-wicket win after they successfully chased down 297 thanks to a swashbuckling 139-ball-173 by Ankush Bains. But they were well beaten by Maharashtra after they failed to chase down 278 and were bowled out for a poultry 195. Ankush Bains (62) and Nikhil Ganta (76) were the lone contributors in an otherwise insipid batting display.
