RAI vs MP Dream11 : Railways traverse for their second successive win when they take on a paper thin Maharashtra outfit today
Friday morning brings our way two sides in Elite Group C of the ongoing edition of the Vijay Hazare Trophy, two sides for whom the opening exchanges of the marquee tournamnet couldn’t have played out in more opposing fashions. Where Railways ended up cantering their way to as resounding a win as they get, Madhya Pradesh were routed to pummel right into the bottom spots of the league.
Playing against Bihar in their tournamnet opener, Railways ended up registering a colossal 84 run win through the VJD method in a rain shortened encounter where the side were in complete control across the full entire of the match. Batting first, they marauded their way to 289-6 before Railways were handed a revised target to achieve in 43 overs, one they fell well short of with Railways curtailing their pursuit at 155-6.
Elsewhere, Madhya Pradesh will be looking to overhaul what was a horrific showing in their first match, a chastening 104 run defeat through the VJD method as the side put in an abject and callous batting display to be left well famished of the target at hand. Slumped at 86-6 in the 26 overs accorded to them, the side were left in disarray as they kept losing wickets at crucial junctures in a performance which saw them be befittingly trounced.
It’s a result they’ll be looking to overturn when they clash heads against Railways today who will be having their own agendas of reaching the annuls of group with the clamour for a spot in the pinnacles already heating up. It’s a match which sits in Railways favour at the moment but given Maharashtra’s ability and diminutiveness, a much improved showing won’t be the most surprising of aspects from them
Pitch Conditions And Toss
With record rains lashing the country across all regions, Jaipur has failed to survive the brunt of incessant and widespread rainfall either. The conditions prevelant today see rain in the rain with dark clouds set to hover over the stadium, ready to explode at any given time.
A tailored clash is a very realistic proposition, seeing the side winning the toss opting to field first and make the most of the wetness seeped into the surface. There will be something for the pacers but nothing too series to halt the batsmen from finding the boundary on ample occasions.

RAI vs MP Match Prediction
After the way the first match scoured out for either side, we have to incline towards Railways for this encounter. What favours them is not only their ability to score quick runs which could come to the fore in a shortened match but their upbeat bowling unit as well which is capable of showing its mettle in tandem.

RAI vs MP Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Madhya Pradesh’s wicket-keeper and opener, Ajay Rohera is selected by us for this one. With the threat of rain being ever present today, it is safe to venture in with the top-orders from either side, making Rohera a suitable choice given the slew of shots prevelant in his artillery.
RAI vs MP Dream11 Batsmen
Sticking with the aforementioned narrative op opting for batsmen who’ll come out fairly quickly to bat in the middle along with being names who can cream the ball to the fence by cuing it on the sweet spot, we have the one player come in from Madhya Pradesh in the form of Parth Sahani whilst from the other side we are moving in with both their opener Mangal Mahrour and Ashish Sehrawat.
RAI vs MP Dream11 All-Rounders
After picking up 3-23 in the first match, a performance which regressed Bihar’s run chase, it was only befitting to make Karn hara an instant pick for us. The spinner has scored 1,103 runs and taken 102 wickets in India’s domestic arena, making him someone who is an essential pick for us with Harsh Tyagi coming in as well from Railways.
Just the one pick from MP for us with us choosing to get in Venkatesh Iyer for today’s match.
RAI vs MP Dream11 Bowlers
This is going to be a surface where the new ball bowlers thrive and flourish, getting the ball to deviate either way with the shape of the ball, pitched on the right areas become a calamity for batsmen to face off against. The frontline bowlers were the way to go for this one, seeing us get in the two apiece from either side.
Karthik Raman and T Pradeep become our picks from Railways whilst from Madhya Pradesh we have decided to incur in the services of Gaurav Yadav and Ishwar Pandey.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Mangal is our side’s captain for today while Karn is being made the vice-captain.
