Saurashtra will lock horns against Chandigarh in round IV of the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy 2021 on Sunday. The Chaudhry Bansi Lal Cricket Stadium in Lahli will host this Elite Group E clash, which promises to be a cracker of a contest.

Saurashtra lost their opening game against Hyderabad, but found momentum, winning their next two games. They defeated Uttarakhand in a thriller in their last fixture. Batting first, Saurashtra posted 146 on the board, losing three wickets. Uttarakhand started well, but Saurashtra fought back to win by two runs. Saurashtra will be high in confidence after that close-fought win.

Meanwhile, Chandigarh are reeling in fifth position in Group E. They have played three games, but lost all three. They suffered a heavy loss against Hyderabad in their last fixture.

After being asked to bat first, captain Manan Vohra smashed a century as they posted 162 runs on the board. What followed next was a disappointing show from their bowlers, as they failed to defend the total. Hyderabad chased down the target with eight balls to spare and with eight wickets in hand.

Chandigarh will need to be at their best to register their first win of the competition.
