MAH vs UP Dream11 : Rain continues to stay in the air, looming heavily over today’s imminent clash
Yearning for the 2019 edition of the Vijay Hazare Trophy as we carved for the Indian 50 over season to get underway, rain has decided to refrain the showpiece tournamnet for catering out its set of enthralling fixtures. It’s lashed a slew of encounters across the course of the marquee tournamnet in its opening exchanges, seeing a flurry of matches being abandoned to leave us despondent.
And two sides who were entrapped in a familiar outcome were today’s opponents Maharastra’s and Uttar Pradesh with both the sides coming under the brunt of widespread rainfall. While Uttar Pradesh saw 20 overs being played in their match against Baroda before rain returned to seize proceedings from taking place, Maharashtra failed to see even a ball being bowled in their clash as rain laid a complete siege.
Uttar Pradesh will especially be extremely dejected with rain with the side sitting in a position of complete control against Baroda, well on top as they reduced them to 91-8, a situation from which they looked set to win. It was an imperious display of bowling by the side, one they know they’ll have to emanate yet again against a way more superior and well-versed Maharashtra side.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Although the track is an excellent one for batting, rain is the only takeaway as far as the conditions are concerned. A slew of matches have been truncated in the first two rounds and today’s match could end up enduring the similar outcome with their being a heavy likelihood of rain lashing the surface.
Just in case we do have a match, the side winning the toss will be looking to step out and chase today.

MAH vs UP Match Prediction
The composition of both the side’s should see Maharashtra emerge as the winners from this one. They have a set of players who have thrived on the biggest stage for India over the course of the last year, players who know just what it takes to help their side make massive strides in the showpiece tournamnet.
What works in their favour is the top-order which is going to allow the side to clean apart the bowlers and pile on a colossal score today.

MAH vs UP Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Uttar Pradesh’s wicket-keeper, Upendra Yadav is our pick for this match. Not only does he come out to open for his side, a rhetoric which assures him of ample overs in the middle but he is someone of piling on the runs on the scoreboard as well.
MAH vs UP Dream11 Batsmen
His partner and the perfect player to give him assistance in this quest, Uttar Pradesh’s captain, Samarth Singh comes into our side as well. The team’s opener scored 265 runs in the Vijay Hazare Trophy last year, doling out consistent and impressive displays to be handed over the leadership role for the side.
We are choosing Rinku Singh from the side as well while from the opposition we have an entire trivalent of picks. Ruturaj Gaikwad becomes an instant pick for us given the stellar displays he’s shelled out for India A in 2019, batting sublimely across any batting track to rout bowlers and carve out massive innings. Rahul Tripathi comes in as well alongside Ankit Bawne who has piled on 2,439 runs in 73 matches in the Indian domestic arena.
MAH vs UP Dream11 All-Rounders
Just the one pick for us with Maharastra’s captain, Kedar Jadhav being brought in by us for this match. With some astute performances with the bat and playing more than a passerby role with the ball as well, Jadhav becomes an integral part of our side, a name who can easily contribute with a hoard of points.
MAH vs UP Dream11 Bowlers
With rain all too likely to make a foray into the fray of this encounter, there was only one consideration when we started to build out our bowling order for today’s math. We have decided to venture in with the frontline pacers for today’s encounter, players who’ll be a massive threat with the new ball in their hands.
We begin with Shivam Mavi from Uttar Pradesh after he snatched 3 wickets in the previous match with Mohsin Khan coming in from the side as well. On the other hand, it’s a duo brought in as well from Maharastra’s with us going in for Nikit Dhumal and Samad Fallah, their leading wicket taker with 58 wickets in 38 encounters.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Ruturaj is our side’s captain for today whilst we are making Samad the vice-captain.
