With a very strong bowling and batting lineups Bengal started the tournament on a winning note and after 3 matches still unbeaten. 4th Match is between Bengal and Mumbai. Mumbai has won 2 out of 3 matches and looks pretty balanced side with Iyer, Tare, Nayar, Thakur and Tambe on the side. Whereas in Bengal we have very known faces, Manoj Tiwary, Goswami, Dinda, and Ojha who all have been performers.
Manoj Tiwary has already hit a century in last match. Easwaran continues its good form having an average of 68+ in List A matches. Kanishk Seth chipping wickets every match and getting in opposition batsmen trouble all the time with Dinda and Ojha playing the supporting role
From last 3 matches Mumbai team is same except S Dubey replaced Dhumal in last two matches.
Mumbai Probable 11: Aditya Tare (wk), Prithvi Shaw, A Herwadkar, S Iyer, A Nayar, S Lad, S Yadav, S Dubey, S Thakur, P Tambe, S Malhotra
In Bengal, IC Porel and P Chandila replaced SS Ghosh and AA Gani. P Chandila may get replaced and make way for AA Gani or SS Ghosh as he did not perform and went expensive in his bowling spell as well.
Bengal Probale 11: S Goswami (wk), A Easwaran, S Chatterjee, M Tiwary, A Majumdar, Pankaj Shaw, P Chandila, KK Seth, P Ojha, A Dinda, IC Porel
Possible Lineup: Goswami/Tare (wk), M. Tiwary, Easwaran, Iyer, Herwadkar, K. Seth, Majumdar, Nayar, Ojha, Thakur, Malhotra.
One can opt for Chatterjee in place of Easwaran/Majumdar
Well Majumdar is an All-rounder and he is having an average of 48+ in List A matches and Chatterjee having 30+ but Majumdar comes down the order and that is only plus point with Chatterjee. Seeing the bowling options of Mumbai, Majumdar may get a chance to come early.
CAP: Manoj Tiwary/Easwaran
VC: K Seth/Herwadkar/Iyer
Rohit Sharma tweeted that he will be available for Mumbai’s 50-over matches in the Vijay Hazare Trophy on March 4 and 6.
