Hyderabad will square off against Jharkhand in the 2021-22 Vijay Hazare Trophy on Tuesday, December 14, at the Sector 16 Stadium in Chandigarh.
Hyderabad, led by Tanmay Agarwal, are third in the points table in Elite Group C. They started on a good note with back-to-back wins over Haryana and Delhi. However, defeats against Saurashtra and Uttar Pradesh have dented their progress in the competition.
On Sunday, UP beat them by seven wickets. After being put in to bat first, Hyderabad were bowled out for 149. Rahul Buddhi’s 49 was the saving grace for Hyderabad. In response, UP romped home in 26 overs and with 144 deliveries to spare.
Meanwhile, Jharkhand, led by Saurabh Tiwary, haven’t found the going easy in the ongoing edition of the tournament. On Sunday, Saurashtra beat them by seven wickets. After being sent in to bat, Jharkhand scored 211, thanks to Ishank Jaggi’s 75-ball 56.
Utkarsh Singh, batting at No.3, turned up with a valuable 55-run knock. Shahbaz Nadeem and Varun Aaron scored 20s to take Jharkhand past the 200-run mark. However, Prerak Mankad’s unbeaten 106 off 72 made sure Saurashtra chased down the target in 34.4 overs.
