Match Details:

The Round 2 Elite Group A and B game will take place between Maharashtra and Himachal Pradesh at the Reliance Stadium in Vadodara.

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

Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

Maharashtra and Himachal Pradesh will finally face-off on Sunday. Their clash was abandoned twice before due to relentless rains in Vadodara. However, this rescheduled game is expected to take place with the weather staying fair for the last few days. Himachal Pradesh are on a winning spree having won their last three matches comfortably after losing to Odisha in a rain-hit earlier in the season.

They are currently at the sixth position with 16 points to their name and are one of the favourites to make it to the knockouts. Maharashtra, on the other hand, can’t relent and after a good performance against Haryana, they will have to back it up with a similar show within 24 hours to give themselves a shot at making it to the top five.

Weather Condition/Report:

October heat is hitting Vadodara after the unseasonal rains last month. The temperatures are expected to soar up to 37 Degrees Celsius in the afternoon and there is no chance of rain whatsoever according to AccuWeather.


Pitch Condition/Report:

Reliance Stadium in Vadodara is yet to host a full game this season. This could turn out to be the first full game played at the venue. There is no idea on how will pitch behave. With the sun beating down though expect the surface to break down soon. Two ODIs played last week between India Women and South Africa Women saw the ball spinning and the pitch was slow. Expect the team winning the toss to bowl first.

Average first innings score: 205 (In Two Women’s ODIs (IND v SA) played last week)

Record of the chasing teams: Won – 2; Lost – 0
