The Round 9 Elite Group C game of the 2019-20 Vijay Hazare Trophy will be played between Tamil Nadu and Tripura at the KL Saini Ground in Jaipur.
The match starts at 9:00 AM local time (IST) (3:30 AM GMT).
The caravan of 2019-20 Vijay Hazare Trophy rolls and the Round 09 Elite Group C encounter will see Tamil Nadu lock horns with Tripura.
Tamil Nadu has been on a rampage this season thus far. The Tamil Nadu-led unit has won each of their five games thus far and is coming into this game on the back of a clinical eight-wicket win over JK after a century from Murali Vijay  and an unbeaten half-century from Baba Aparajith [86*] guided past the target of 239 with ridiculous ease.
They’ll now face Tripura, who too are coming off a 47-run win at the expense of Rajasthan with Bishal Ghosh  and Tanmay Mishra  emerging as the spearheads.
For a change, the weather is expected to be bright and sunny at Jaipur tomorrow. According to the weather report, the humidity is expected to be 49 percent while the temperatures are expected to hover between 23-32 degrees.
The pitch at KL Saini Ground has been brilliant for batting this far in the tournament. Much of the same is expected in tomorrow’s encounter.
