15:17 (IST)25 MAR 2018

Kerala are all set to take on Maharashtra at the Howrah Municipal Corporation ground, on today, as they face off against Maharashtra in what promises to be a thrilling West Coast Derby in the east. 

Having qualified from the South Zone qualifiers, Kerala are one of the favourites to win the tournament. They are currently topping Group A ahead of defending champions and hosts West Bengal, which speaks volumes for their talent. 

Meanwhile, Maharashtra have had not had such a successful campaign, having earned just one win against Chandigarh. They would also like to forget the 5-1 drubbing they received at the hands of West Bengal earlier.
