The Round 10 Elite Group A and B game will take place between Punjab and Uttar Pradesh in the Gujarat State Fertilizer Corporation Ground in Vadodara.
The match starts at 9:00 AM local time (IST) (3:30 AM GMT).
Punjab will take on Uttar Pradesh in the Round 10 of the Elite Group A and B encounter of the 2019-20 Vijay Hazare Trophy on Saturday. Punjab will come into this game after having registered a three-wicket win against Baroda. The win was spearheaded by Siddarth Kaul’s four-wicket-haul; one that restricted Baroda to 8-222.
Their batting though was a tale of batsmen getting themselves in and then throwing it away. Eventually, Karan Kaila (35*) guided them past the finishing line. Their opponents- Uttar Pradesh- are coming off a five-wicket-win against Delhi after they successfully chased down 203, courtesy half-centuries from Priyam Garg (79) and Upendra Yadav (57).
The weather in Vadodara is expected to be bright and sunny on Saturday. According to the weather report, the humidity is expected to be around 47% while the temperatures will hover between 23-35 degrees.
In the three games played at the venue, we have seen good all-round cricket with the wicket providing enough to keep everyone interested. Much of the same is expected on Saturday.
