Delhi face Vidarbha in a crunch Elite, Cross Pool match in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019, with both teams needing a win to stay relevant in the tournament.
Delhi are hovering in the middle of the table and could do with a win here against a team hard-pressed for a positive result as well.
That said, Delhi’s position on the table is not a good reflection of their efforts. Had it not for the rain, the view on the table could have been far more satisfactory for the capital side.
Rain played a spoilsport in three of the six matches Delhi had on their schedule heading into this match, with two wins coming in the remaining three games.
Vidarbha could empathize with Delhi as they had a rain-affected tournament as well. A total of three games were washed out, while they could win just once in the remaining three matches.
Delhi and Vidarbha will play this match at Gujarat State Fertilizer Corporation Ground, Vadodara. The match is scheduled to start at 09:00 AM (IST), 03:00 AM GMT.
