Toss update: Baroda have won the toss and opted to field first

Baroda had an underwhelming campaign in the recently concluded Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy which saw a change in the leadership role. India all-rounder Krunal Pandya stepped down from the role and experienced batter Kedar Devdhar has been chosen to lead the side. They also suffered a big blow ahead of their opener against Bengal after star all-rounder Hardik Pandya pulled out of the tournament to undergo rehab.

Devdhar, who has played 73 List A games so far and has scored 2,402 runs, will have a tough task to lead side -who hasn’t been in rhythm in the last couple of tournaments. Baroda failed to reach the quarterfinals of the previous Vijay Hazare Trophy edition and managed just 1 win in the SMAT 2021.

In the previous Vijay Hazare edition, Baroda managed to win 4 out of their 5 groups games but were denied a playoff spot by Gujarat who were unbeaten in the group stage. Can the change in captain bring some change in fortune?

Bengal, on the opposite, will be a lot more confident, considering their run in the SMAT 2021. Bengal reached the quarterfinal of the marquee event and unfortunately got knocked out after facing a defeat at the hands of Karnataka in the Super Over.

However, Bengal too will be hoping for a better run this time. They managed just two wins in their previous year’s campaign and finished at the bottom second spot in the group stage.

Baroda Probable Playing XI:

Kedar Devdhar (c), Vishnu Solanki (wk), Dhruv Patel, Bhanu Pania, Krunal Pandya, Parth Kohli, Atit Sheth, Shashwat Rawat, Kartik Kakade, Lukman Meriwala, Soyeb Sopariya

Bengal Probable Playing XI:

Shreevats Goswami (wk), Abhishek Das, Writtick Chatterjee, Sudip Chatterjee (c), Kaif Ahmed, Shahbaz Ahmed, Ritwik Roy Chowdhury, Pradipta Pramanik, Akash Deep, Mukesh Kumar, Sayan Ghosh
