Preview:

Himachal Pradesh will square off against Mumbai in the Elite Group D match of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2020-21 on Monday.

However, two back-to-back defeats have curbed their chances of making it to the next round.

Meanwhile, Mumbai are the only team that hasn’t lost a match among the Elite Group D teams in this competition. Their batting unit has been phenomenal throughout the competition. Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, and Suryakumar Yadav are in extraordinary forms at the moment with the bat. With 4 wins in 4 matches, they are at the top of the table in the Elite Group D standings with 16 points. They will now need to finish their group fixtures with a win and keep the winning momentum for the knockout stages.
