MCA vs TND Match Prediction - Jan 03, 2023

Tamil Nadu will be looking to score its first win of the season as it faces the perennial favorites Mumbai for a Group B match in the Ranji Trophy.

Mumbai is in terrific form this season but suffered an unexpected defeat in the last match. Nevertheless, they once again start the match as favorites. The odds available for a Mumbai win are quite attractive at this stage and one can compare the same by sifting through some of the reputed betting sites before placing their wagers. 


MCA vs TND Team Previews


Mumbai started the season on expected lines as it won both its opening matches quite easily. It was expected to do the same in their latest match against Saurashtra, against whom they had never lost a match in their history. 

Shams Mulani was once again exceptional with his left-arm spin and took 10 wickets in the match for 174 runs. Saurashtra finished its first innings with a modest total of 289. In their first innings, Mumbai lost both its openers with just 6 runs on the board, but a solid 92-run partnership between Suryakumar Yadav and Sarfaraz Khan helped the hosts stabilize the innings.

Ajinkya Rahane, who scored a double century in the previous match against Hyderabad fell for 24, while both SKY and Sarfaraz Khan went on 2 score half-centuries. Mumbai conceded a 59-run lead, which was built upon and Saurashtra set them a stiff target of 280 to win the match. Despite losing Yashasvi Jaiswal early, Prithvi Shaw and SKY played positively to set the match nicely. However, once Shaw departed, things quickly unraveled and Mumbai lost by 48 runs.

The team will be looking to forget this loss quickly and start their match against Tamil Nadu with a positive frame of mind.<br />

Tamil Nadu

It hasn’t been the best of starts for Tamil Nadu as they haven’t managed to register a win even after playing 3 matches in the league stage. With 2 draws and a loss, Tamil Nadu is sitting 6th on the points table. With just 3 matches to go after this one, Tamil Nadu will be desperate to win this one.

Tamil Nadu had a great opportunity to win their previous match, played against Delhi as the latter was playing without its first-choice bowling line-up. However, the Delhi batsmen managed to chew through the overs in the second innings before bad light stopped the play earlier than scheduled to rob the visitors of the glimmer of hope that they had.

There have been some brilliant individual performances by Tamil Nadu top-order batsmen this season. Sai Sudharsan has scored 2 centuries in his journey to 420 runs from 6 innings. Baba Aparajith and N Jagadeesan are in good form too, scoring runs at a consistent rate. The middle order, while not much exposed, has failed to impress so far.

The bowling effort to has been pretty average. Sandeep Warrier and Sai Kishore have picked up 16 wickets each, while L Vignesh is close behind with 13. 


Tamil Nadu Playing 11

Aswin Crist, B Aparajith, Baba Indrajith, H Trilok Nag, Lakshminarayanan Vignesh, Narayan Jagadeesan, Pradosh Ranjan Paul, Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore, Sai Sudharsan, Shahrukh Khan, Vijay Shankar.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the Brabourne Stadium is good to bat on and batsmen will find it easy to score runs. While the quicker bowlers do not get much assistance, the spinners will come into the picture as the match progresses. As the track deteriorates, there will be a good turn on offer.

The average first innings score here is around 350. Anything above 150 can prove to be difficult to chase in the 4th innings. The sky is expected to remain clear and temperature will remain between 20-30 degrees Celsius. 


MCA vs TND Betting Tips

Barring the result in its match against Saurashtra, the Mumbai team has excelled in all departments so far this season. However, the same cannot be said about their opponents. The Tamil Nadu team hasn’t played to its full potential so far and is likely to struggle in this match.

Bet on Mumbai to win.
