GUJ vs TN: India’s domestic One-day tournament has largely been under the radar. The India vs South Africa test series has overlapped with it perfectly & the rain gods seemed to be merciless. Well, for a good 7 days. The cloud cover did depart & the beautiful game did prevail. Group C however, faced very little hindrance & the points table validates it. Old mates, Parthiv Patel & Dinesh Karthik meet yet again in a Group C fixture to go one better than the other. Gujarat & Tamil Nadu have played 8 games each & have lost none so far. Both captains have been instrumental in their teams’ reign at the top of the points table.
Have the two teams made it to the quarter-finals? The Vijay Hazare Trophy has adopted a new structure after the addition of 9 new teams. The tally of teams had now gone up to 38 with the segregation of Group A & B(9 teams each), Plate(10 teams) & Elite(10 teams). Then which teams make it to the top 8? The plate group toppers, top 2 from the elite group & the top 5 from the combined list of Groups A & B qualify for the quarter-finals. Gujarat & Tamil Nadu have been undefeated so far. Both teams have played quality cricket, almost belittling teams with dismissive arrogance.
CURRENT FORM & TOP PERFORMERS
There’s a striking similarity between the two teams. Both teams have managed to defend 4 totals & have successfully chased down 4 times. Gujarat’s most recent win was against the Jammu lads. A masterclass from the classy Priyank Panchal helped them take that game by 8 wickets. Panchal scored an unbeaten 135*. On the other hand, Tamil Nadu steamrolled a struggling Madhya Pradesh by 211 runs. Abhinav Mukund scored a career-best 147 & Dinesh Karthik was at his smashing best. The skipper scored 65* off 28 deliveries.
Murugan Ashwin & K Vignesh have been the major destructors as far as dismissing batsmen is concerned. For Gujarat, Roosh Kalaria(17), Piyush Chawla(12) & Arzan Nagwaswalla(11) have been the match-winners with the white cherry.
Baba Aparijit has amassed 445 runs at 89, Abhinav Mukund – 387 at 48.37 & Dinesh Karthik – 349 at 116.33. Karthik though seems to have mistaken the format to T20. He’s smashing the leather off of the kookaburra at 136.32
Bhargav Merai at 2 drop has been the pillar of strength for Gujarat. The right-handed bat has scored 366 runs at 73.20. Parthiv Patel hasn’t done badly either. Gujarat’s leader has scored 347 at 49.57. These players can be your top fantasy picks for this fixture on FanFight.
