Jharkhand and Rajasthan will face each other on the opening day of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy on Thursday. The FB Colony Ground in Vadodara will host this Group C game.

Jharkhand didn’t have a good outing in the previous edition of the tournament, as they failed to qualify for the quarter-finals. They won three of their five games. They were part of close-fought games last season. They even prevailed in a super over against Hyderabad in their last group game, but failed to finish in the top 2. So they will be determined to fare better this season.

Rajasthan, meanwhile, entered the semi-final of the competition last season. Winning four of their five games, they qualified for the quarter-final, where they beat Bihar convincingly. Their progress was halted by Tamil Nadu, who eventually lifted the trophy.

Rajasthan look strong on paper, and will look to seize their moments in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. They will hope to go all the way this time around. They look like a well-balanced side, and will be eager to kick off their campaign on a winning note against Rajasthan.
