Both teams have had dismal starts to their respective Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy campaigns. Services are placed at the penultimate position in the Elite Group D points table with three losses from as many games and lost their last match against Rajasthan by 6 wickets. Their batsmen have done a good job, but the bowlers were unable to defend decent totals in all three games
Vidarbha, on the other hand, have lost all three games of their games as well, and find themselves at the bottom of the Elite Group D points table. They lost their last match against Madhya Pradesh by 21 runs. Ganesh Satish & co. have struggled with the bat, especially while chasing.
This game guarantees to be an enticing one with both teams searching for the first victory of the tournament.
