Match Details:

The Quarter-Final 3 of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021 will be played between Baroda and Haryana at the Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera, Ahmedabad.

This match is scheduled to start at 12:00 PM Local Time and IST.


In the third quarter-final of the ongoing edition of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, two very consistent teams in Baroda and Haryana will lock horns. They both are coming into this game on the back of a fantastic group stage campaign, where they both won all of their 5 games.

However, none of that will matter tomorrow, as the first defeat of the campaign will result in the eviction of one of these two teams from the competition. Baroda are a stronger side on paper, but given how Haryana have played in the group stage, it will be foolish to take them lightly.

HAR vs BAR Weather Report:

The temperature will be around 24 °C during the start of the game. We can expect full 40 overs of action as the chances of rain are nil.
