Match Details:

The Round 15 game of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019-20 between Gujarat and Tamil Nadu will be hosted by Jaipuria Vidyala Ground in Jaipur.

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


On Wednesday, one of the most anticipated games of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019-20 will be played. The only two teams that are unbeaten so far will come face-to-face to decide which one is better. Both Gujarat and Tamil Nadu have played eight games thus far and dominated like no other side. But when they face each other, one team has to lose and this cricket game will truly be a delight for the fans.

As of now, Tamil Nadu is the leader of the Elite Group C points table. But they only have a slight advantage in terms of the NRR. Two of India’s premier wicket-keepers – Parthiv Patel and Dinesh Karthik – will put their best possible efforts to try and guide their team to a victory.

Weather Report

It will be a clear sunny day in Jaipur on Wednesday. The humidity will fluctuate between 23 and 45 per cent through the course of the game. Players will be tested by the heat.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The pitch could be dry assisting the spinners with some turn. Of what we have seen recently, there is something on offer for everyone here. It isn’t a typically high scoring venue. But if the batsmen go through the grind and work hard early on, they can get big scores.

Average first innings score: 228.33 (Last three Vijay Hazare Trophy matches at this venue)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 2, Lost – 1, Tied – 0
