The confident Assam team will have their work cut out for them if they are to win the Ranji Trophy at the Mumbai Assam Cricket Association Stadium.

The scenic Amingaon Cricket Ground is located only around 20 kilometres away from the Assam Cricket Association Stadium in Barsapara, which is the centre of interest ahead of the first one-day international between India and Sri Lanka. Since its opening in 2021, the picturesque facility, which has a view of the surrounding mountains, has been used for the staging of age-group competitions that are associated with the BCCI. 

However, it will make its debut in a First-Class match on Tuesday, when the home powerhouse Mumbai competes against Assam in a key match for the Ranji Trophy. Yashasvi Jaiswal did not Shaw and Jaffer hit together in the nets during the practise that took place the day before the game, which served as a hint that the two of them would begin the batting order, with Rahane moving up to the No. 3 position. Although the management of the squad wants to make a decision on the final XI before the toss, coach Amol Muzumdar thinks that Jaiswal’s absence might open the door for someone else.


The Yashasvi team is an essential component of the Mumbai squad. Unfortunately, he will not be able to participate in this game; but, we do have alternatives available. According to what Muzumdar told Sportstar, there is “nothing like it” if the team is able to seize the chance.

As the competition for the knockout rounds heats up, Mumbai, who is now in second place in Elite Group B with 16 points, will be looking to secure an outright victory in order to maintain their position in the running. In the previous match, despite having a first-innings advantage, it was unable to secure all six points against Tamil Nadu at home. Having learned from this experience, the squad would be looking to make apologies for this performance in the next match. Shardul Thakur will be eligible for selection, which is a huge boost for the team. Prior to the game, the India bowler bowled in the nets and seemed to be in fine form for the outing.

Tushar Deshpande

who took six wickets against Tamil Nadu, including a five-for in the first innings, did not bowl on Monday; however, coach Muzumdar said that it was only a manner of regulating his workload and stressed that he would be ready for selection when they play Assam. It came down to the wire (until Friday), and we travelled here early in the morning (on Saturday), so it is about regulating his workload and ensuring that everyone remains fresh, the coach said. We played for four days in the last game, and it went down to the wire (until Friday).

Due to the dropping temperatures in the morning, the cautious Mumbai team wants to take it one session at a time, while the home Assam team intends to throw a wrench into the preparations of the visiting team. Assam is now in fifth position on the points table with 11 points, which means that its prospects of advancing to the knockout round are very low. However, the club feels that all it needs is a two of excellent games to turn its luck around. The circle is quite welcoming. In the sport of cricket, it is impossible to anticipate what will happen next. According to Assam’s head coach Trevor Gonsalves, a day can alter a lot of things, and all we need is two victories to advance to the knockout rounds.

Due to the fact that the team’s normal captain, Kunal Saikia, has not yet fully recovered from his hamstring injury, Gokul Sharma, an experienced batter, will serve as the team’s captain in his stead. The squad will be without the services of its regular leader. Akash Sengupta, who contributed against Maharashtra by scoring 65 runs while struggling with the heat, is also sick with a fever and won’t be able to play. In their most recent four matches, Assam has earned one win and three draws. Their most recent victory came against Hyderabad. Despite Kedar Jadhav’s double-century in the previous match against Maharashtra, they were able to come back and win.

Riyan Parag

The attention will once again be directed on Riyan Parag, who has been influential throughout the competition so far. Riyan relied on his previous experiences and stepped up at crucial moments; but, in order to defeat Mumbai, he will need to assume a greater level of responsibility. Simply said, we go by the name Mumbai. Despite losing four wickets early on, we were able to take the lead in the first innings against Delhi. In the past, when faced with the strain of competing against a large squad, some players, upon seeing the name, would choose to end their own lives by committing harakiri. However, this is no longer the case. Gonsalves said, bubbling over with self-assurance, Mumbai is now simply a team.
