Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

Hyderabad and Maharashtra play each other in a crucial Round 5 clash on Wednesday in Chandigarh. Both teams have won two games each and look to breakthrough into the knockout spots. Inconsistency has been the norm for either side, which are looking to make amends at the expense of one another.

While Maharashtra comes into this game on the back of a tough loss to Chhattisgarh, Hyderabad sprung back to life with a brilliant bowling display against the home side, Chandigarh on Tuesday. Both teams are evenly matched with the likes of Ambati Rayudu and Kedar Jadhav set to feature in this highly anticipated clash. Nevertheless, Hyderabad will fancy its chances against last season’s runners-up Maharashtra, which paves the way for an exciting contest.

Weather Condition/Report

A clear day with cloudy conditions set to engulf the stadium. A cloud cover of 94% and humidity of 40%, as per AccuWeather, is expected with the temperature expected to hover around 24 and 27 degrees Celsius.

Pitch Condition/Report

A good batting track awaits the two sides with the average first innings score being 160. While the spinners have enjoyed some turn as the match progressed, batting second and preferring to chase has been the norm here. It shouldn’t be any different for this game as the pacers tend to get extra help early on.

Average score: 160 (Seven T20 Matches Played)

Record of Chasing Team: Won – 4, Loss – 3

Ambati Rayudu is one of the best batsmen in the domestic circuit. He has 136 runs so far in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2019 and looks for more on a good batting track. His counterpart, Rahul Tripathi hasn’t fired yet for Maharashtra and is due for a big score at the top of the order.

Satyajeet Bachhav was one of the standout bowlers in the previous edition of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. His tally of twenty wickets last time around holds him in good stead while heading towards this high octane clash. These players should be picked in your Dream11 Fantasy team.
