MUM vs SAU Dream11, Probable Playing 11 And Winner, Toss And Pitch Report : Mumbai look to register their first win of the season while Saurashtra look to comeback from their defeat previously
For more than 12 years, the Mumbai side were longing for a domestic one day triumph with the side devoid of the Vijay Hazare Trophy for way too long. As the yearning and clamour grew for the side to finally stop underachieving and unlock their true potential, the outfit rose to the fore in the bygone season to end a long and arduous wait for the prestigious trophy.
Taking on Delhi in the summit clash, Mumbai were able to show comps ore and imbed semblance in their side as an outfit blessed with toothsome names finally justified the massive expectations accorded from them every time they take to the field. It was a judicious season for them, a journey which they’ll be looking to resonate this time around as well as they look to stamp their authority as one of the best in India’s cricketing arena.
However, their quest of doing so didn’t quite play out as the side would have avidly wished with the side suffering a stunning defeat to Chhattisgarh in the tournamnet opener. Despite piling on 317 runs on the scoreboard, the side aw what looked set to be a strong enough total be laughed at by their opponents who went onto win with a ball to spare by crafting out a rapturous run chase.
Elsewhere, Saurashtra have managed to taste both sides of the results in ther opening two matches, losing their previous one by 121 runs to Hyderabad after having previously chased down Kerala’s 186 in their first match of the frontier tournamnet. Placed in seventh place with four points, their previous defeat was a massive setback to the with their net run-rate taking a huge battering, seeing them just the one spot above Mumbai ahead of this impending clash.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Not only is this one of the surfaces where rain has decided not to brood and hamper proceedings but it’s also a succulent batting track with the score batting first on this wicket being in excess of 260 this year. The morning start will mean the new ball will frisk about and deviate for the pacers but the track will take no time in finding its identity and becoming hard, solid and pristine for batting.
It’s this scenario which will see the side winning the toss opting to field first today.

MUM vs SAU Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
If Saurashtra are to have any chance of winning today’s match, they’ll require their wicket-keeper and the fulcrum of their batting order, Sheldon Jackson to put in a pulsating display today. He’s someone fully capable of doing so as well, emerging as one of the most consistent and dependable bats in the side over the course of the last two seasons, someone we envisage making the most of the conditions today to pile on a good score.
We are also brining in Harvik Desai from the side while with 90 runs in the side’s bygone encounter, Aditya Tare comes in as the wicket-keeper choice from Mumbai.
MUM vs SAU Dream11 Batsmen
With the conditions so sublime a zestful for the batsmen, it comes across as no surprise that our batting order is the most heavily packed and attacked for today’s impending match. Given Mumbai’s exemplary might and incredible strength in the batting order and the 300 plus runs they scored the last time around, we have decided to get in the three players from their side.
Impressing for Indian U19, Yashasvi Jaiswal emulated the same form in the last match, fabricating a pulsating innings of 44 runs to become the first pick from the side. Shreyas Iyer comes in as well after getting 50 along with Suryakumar Yadav who scored 81 in 31 balls for the side.
Elsewhere we have just the one pick from the opposing side complete our batting order with us choosing the side’s highest sorer till now, Arpit Vasavada who got 92 in 85 balls in the side’s opening win.
MUM vs SAU Dream11 All-Rounders
A pivotal player for his side, Saurashtra’s Kamlesh Makvana has bowled in the right areas of the track to get the ball to turn sharply and squarely to snare the three wickets till now. On a surface where the batsmen will thrive, the rank turners will be critical to their side’s cause and we see Makvana adding to his already impressive tally.
MUM vs SAU Dream11 Bowlers
In match where the narrative is going to be all about the bats with the bowlers being subjected to some severe beating and scrutiny, the pat choice to get in the ambit of our side were the new ball operators and the death overs pacers. With two wickets a piece across the side’s first two match, we are picking up Jaydev Unadkat as our choice from Saurashtra for this one.
Mumbai on the other hand are going to be represented by Dhawal Kulkarni and Shams Mulani who stifled the opposition the last time around to return with 3-38.
