The two teams have had contrasting starts to their respective Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy campaigns. Mumbai lost their opening game of the tournament and slipped to the bottom of the Elite Group E points table. They succumbed to Delhi while chasing a large target of 206 runs. However, Mumbai have a balanced squad and will hope for a better result when they face Kerala.
Kerala, on the other hand, started their campaign with a win and are placed 3rd in the Elite Group E points table. They comfortably chased down a total of 139 runs to register a 6-wicket victory over Puducherry. Sanju Samson & co. will hope to keep the momentum alive and pick up four precious points from this game.

Match: Mumbai vs Kerala
Date: 13th January 2021, 07:00 PM IST
Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
The track at the Wankhede Stadium is a batting paradise. With the ball coming on nicely on to the bat, the batsmen should be able to rack up healthy totals on the board.
The bowlers will have an uphill task to control the flow of runs. However, there will be plenty of swing on offer for the bowlers at the Wankhede Stadium owing to its proximity to the Arabian Sea. The average 1st innings score at this venue is 157 runs.
