A winless Odisha will look to pick up their first points of the season when they go head-to-head against Jharkhand at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata, in an Elite Group B clash.
Jharkhand got their first win of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy last time out courtesy of a brilliant performance with the bat, which saw them post an impressive 233/3 in their 20 overs. Their bowling did take a bit of a beating, but they ensured a 51-run win in the end.
Their opponents Odisha, on the other hand, faced defeat at the hands of Tamil Nadu. Odisha won the toss and opted to bat, putting up 132 runs on the board from 20 overs. Tamil Nadu chased that total down quite comfortably in response.

Spinners will love to bowl on this track considering there has been a lot of turn on offer. Given that a game would already have been played on the surface by the time the match begins, it could deteriorate further by the time this game begins. Expect the team winning the toss to bat first.
