Match Details:

The 2nd quarter-final of the 2019-20 Vijay Hazare Trophy will be played between Delhi and Gujarat at the Just Cricket Academy Ground in Bengaluru.

The match starts at 9:00 AM local time (IST) (3:30 AM GMT).


Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

So, here we are then! After weeks of damp quibs, nail biters, humdingers, one-sided games and a whole host of match-winning performances with the bat and ball, we are down to the business end of the tournament.

The 2nd quarter-final will see Delhi square off against Gujarat. Delhi sealed their place in the top-8 courtesy three back-to-back victories in the closing stage of the league. They come into this game on the back of a three-wicket-win against Himachal Pradesh after they successfully chased down 177.

They’ll face Gujarat, whose eight-match winning streak was snapped by Tamil Nadu in their last group fixture and the Parthiv Patel-led unit will be looking to shrug off the blip and resume normal services, come the all-important quarters.

Weather Condition/Report

Surprise, Surprise! Inclement weather is back!! It is expected to be an overcast day in Bengaluru tomorrow. While the humidity is expected to be around 82%, the percentage chance of rain is, well, 100 percent.

Pitch Condition/Report

With a lot of rain expected, we might see a curtailed encounter where bowlers may come into play courtesy moisture in the pitch.

Average first innings score: 214 (In 7 completed 50-over Vijay Hazare Trophy Matches in 2019)

It is extremely tough to have all the favoured players in the team due to their high credits. You will have to take a few risks while picking your team.

Shikhar Dhawan could be picked in the team as he is a big match player. He could be made the captain of GL as only 37% of teams have picked him as of now.

Probable Winners:

It should be a close encounter. But considering Delhi has more experience of winning pressure games, they’ll start as slight favourites.
