Round one of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021 sees Hyderabad lock horns against Haryana. Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium in Mullanpur, Mohali will host this Elite Group C clash.
Hyderabad have been brilliant in the domestic circuit in recent times. Everyone played their part to perfection as they qualified for the semi-finals of the recently concluded Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
After remaining unbeaten throughout the competition, they lost to eventual winners Tamil Nadu in their semi-final clash. The Hyderabad side have looked good in white-ball cricket over the last few years and will be looking to continue playing in the same way.
Haryana failed to qualify for the knockout stages of the last edition of the Vijay Hazare Trophy.
After winning the first two games of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021, they lost their way as they were defeated in their remaining fixtures and were knocked out of the competition.
Haryana haven’t lived up to expectations in the past few years and it will be up to the players to play to their potential in the upcoming one-day league.
They have got promising cricketers on their side and will be hoping to kickstart the competition on a positive note.
