DEL Vs MAH Dream11 : Delhi look to make it two wins on the bounce after getting their first taste of a full encounter in the previous fixture.
We were made to wait for five matches to get our first taste of cricket in Elite Group B of the 2019 edition of the Vijay Hazare Trophy as incessant rainfall loomed ominously to intervene in the opening half of the group. However with rain receding and the weather clearing up, we should have uninterrupted cricket enter the fray finally, a set of events which should engulf today’s encounter between Delhi and Maharastra’s as well.
One of the few sides to have played out a match of cricket in the group, Delhi sit in the pinnacle of the group after having scraped past a 10 run win by VJD against Baroda in their previous encounter. A rain shortened encounter saw Delhi scramble their way to 148 in 38 overs, a score heir bowling unit was able to increase in stature with its imperious bowling performances to leave Baroda’s run chase in a turmoil and refrain them at 128.
Elsewhere, Maharastra’s continue to yearn for their first match of cricket with the side having seen all of their 4 matches being truncated. Today’s match is not only a chance for them to finally step out in the middle and get to ply their skill set for the first time in the marquee tournamnet but also a chance to finally amass a win against Delhi who looked shaky on the batting front the last time around.
Maharashtra will do well to be wary against Delhi though with last year’s finalists showing the determination, reslliance and diligence which saw them make it to the summit clash in the previous edition. The capital side is filled to the brim with talismen, players who know just what it takes to succeed on the big stage and will be looking to make it two wins on the bounce for the side today.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
With rain finally deciding to make way for us to make the first set of cricketing action in the previous round, we are pleased to finally come bearing good news. Today’s match looks set to be another full fledged affair with the heavy cloud covering keeping its distance from the fixture.
However, the slew of rainfall over the week will result in this being a tepid track of batting, one where strokeplay will only become a more torrid task as we run the course of the match. The ball will stop with the track opening up for the spinners, leading the side winning the toss choosing to bat first.

DEL Vs MAH Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
At a time when the batting conditions were inclement, making strokeplay an extremely tricky task, Delhi’s wicket-keeper, Anuj Rawat managed to show fortitude and put on a resolute front to contribute integral runs for his side. Also with Delhi’s bowling order being one which is capable of battering the best batting units, the wicket-keeper will also pick up a slew of point given his involvement in the side’s dismissals.

We are coming into this encounter with an entire trivalent of picks given the immense skill set imbued in this facet with both the sides having some staunch and stellar performers, names who are held in massive reverence in India’s domestic arena. We begin with Dhruv Shorey from Delhi, one of the trio from the side with Himmat Singh who scored 246 runs in the previous season and Hiten Dalal partnering him up.
From Maharashtra we have the custodians of their batting nit, two players who have found it all too easily to leave the opposition in a tussle and maul bowlers with relative ease. The side’s top scorer in the previous edition with 365 runs, Ruturaj Gaikwad is our first pick along with Rahul Tripathi.
DEL Vs MAH Dream11 All-Rounders
A quissential part of Delhi’s win in the last match, Manan Sharma is our selection from Delhi whilst from Maharashtra we are opting for their captain Kedar Jadhav. He has scored 4,782 runs in the domestic circuit and with him being used judiciously as a spinner by India as well, his dual nature as a player will come to the fore on this wicket.
