Vijay Hazare Trophy, 2018
Assam vs Rajasthan, Round 10, Elite Group C
Assam and Rajasthan will lock horns in the Round 10, Elite Group C encounter on Monday as both sides aim to recuperate from a chastening loss in the last match.
Venue:- MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai
Match Timing:- Monday, October 01, 2018
Assam comes into this encounter on the back of a five-wicket loss at the hands of Bengal in their game after a lackluster batting performance that saw them get knocked over for 150 in 35.5 overs.
Like Assam, Rajasthan to put-up an abysmal display with the bat in their pursuit of 243 set by Tripura in the previous match. Robin Bist (42) and Chandrapal Singh (38) were the only substantial contributors in the face of a top-order collapse which saw them flounder to a 48-run defeat.
With the tournament heating up, both sides will look to address their batting woes in this all-important match.
