The fourth quarter-final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021 will see Mumbai face Saurashtra at the Palam A Stadium in Delhi on Tuesday.
Mumbai, who have been on a roll in the Vijay Hazare Trophy so far, are unbeaten in five outings. While Prithvi Shaw has starred with 404 runs, their bowlers have also come up with the goods. However, in the absence of Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, and Shardul Thakur, Mumbai will need to dig deep to overcome Saurashtra's challenge.
Saurashtra, the Group E toppers of the Vijay Hazare Trophy, have been in solid form this season. Led by Jaydev Unadkat, the reigning Ranji Trophy champions have played good cricket consistently. With their bowlers, particularly Dharmendra Jadeja, performing well, Saurashtra will fancy their chances against a superior Mumbai unit.
Despite Mumbai missing a few stars, they are the favorites heading into Tuesday's Vijay Hazare Trophy game. However, Saurashtra have shown enough promise to worry the heavyweights ahead of the clash. With a place in the semi-finals on the line, both teams will look to give their best in what should be a riveting contest on Tuesday.
