AND Vs BRD Dream11 : Team Picks, Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Top of the table awaits Baroda with a win today when they take on Andhra.
After losing their opener of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, Baroda were quick to ensure that they addressed their gaping holes quickly to paper over the cracks and emerge as an extremely daunting opposition. The side have registered two wins on the bounce ever since to sit in second place in Group A of the showpiece T20 tournamnet in the country, a spot they’ll be looking to further build on come their clash today.
Playing against Uttrakhand in their last outing in the tournamnet, the side were unsparing and unforgiving in their batting effort as they decimated the opposition’s bowling order to put on a momentous 201 runs on the scoreboard. The tricky nature of the target saw Uttrakhand falter with Gujarat’s pinch perfect bowling only further serving fortuitously for them to canter their way to a 32 run win on the day.
Elsewhere, for Andhra, life in the tournamnet till now has been a mixed one. Where they defeat Bihar in their first match, the side ended up losing to Karnataka the last time around with a disgruntled showing by their bowlers leaving the side famished. The bowlers failed to compliment the 184 raked up by their batsmen with wayward and easy to plunder line and length seeing the opposition gallop their way to a five wicket win with 7 balls to spare.
Now as the two sides face off against each other, for Andhra, the need to massively overhaul their underachieving bowling unit is an imminent. Gujarat will be quick to rip into them if they put in a display akin to the previous match as the side look to register their third win in succession and manoeuvre their way into the pinnacles of the group.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A solid wicket for the batters, the batsmen are going to rejoice batting on a track which is going to stay true to its nature across the full 40 overs, leading the side winning the toss choosing to field first. This will easily be a high scoring fixture with the side batting first needing to put on atleast 170.

AND Vs BRD Dream11 Picks
We are choosing Kedar Devdhar from Baroda for the imminent clash with the player piling on a stellar innings against Karnataka to make the wicket-keeper good value for this tie.
Another bat who has been in solid and imperious touch for the second placed side in Group A of the tournamnet has been Aditya Waghmode with the player taking no time in opening his arms and garnering up a hefty amount of runs. From the opposition meanwhile we are choosing their captain Ricky Bhui with the player piling on 841 runs in 35 matches for his side along with Ashwin Hebbar who as tallied up a staggering 113 runs in 2 matches.
Our trivalent of Baroda begins with the side’s leading scorer in the form of Swapnil Singh. The player has been the key component of his unit’s setup with him piling on 133 runs for the unit along with taking the four wickets as well in what has been a tantalising performance by the player.
Deepak Hooda has emulated the same kind of displays with him putting on 100 runs along with returning with the one wicket as well while the returning Krunal Pandya is also selected by us with the player set to play his first match with the T20 series between India and Bangladesh over. From the other side meanwhile we have the lone pick be inducted in our outfit in the form of Naren Reddy.
His side’s leading wicket taker with 8 wickets in three matches including a tenacious and gripping spell of 5-21 sees us imbed Lukman Meriwala into our side. He also finds company in the form of Rishi Arothe given the deviation he’s going to get to take the ball away from the right handed heavy unit of the opposition who have KV Sasikanth come in for us given the 25 wickets he’s taken in 26 matches.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We have decided to venture in with Rawat as our side’s captain for the fixture whilst Jackson is the vice-captain for today.
