Two teams from the northern part of India will meet as Uttar Pradesh and Chandigarh lock horns in their opening game of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021-22. The two sides are placed in Elite Group E alongside Delhi, Uttarakhand, Hyderabad, and Saurashtra.
Uttar Pradesh was fairly disappointing last season as per their standards. They finished 5th in Elite Group A with only a single win and four losses against their name. They will have to uplift their game if they don’t want a repetition of last season.
Chandigarh, on the other hand, narrowly missed last season's quarterfinal berth. They finished 2nd in the Plate Group with four wins and one abandoned game in five matches. However, they have been placed among elite teams this time, and they will need a miraculous run of form to make it to the next stage this season.
