MCA vs VDB Match Prediction - Oct 16, 2022

Vidarbha will look to bounce back in the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy, as it faces a relentless Mumbai on Sunday for its 3rd match of the group stages.

As per most cricket betting sites, Mumbai remains the firm favorite to win this game. However, with Vidarbha being capable of springing up surprises from time to time, we may be able to find some value bets on a few sites.

MCA vs VDB Team Previews


Mumbai has shown some great form since the beginning of the season, winning both its opening matches. In its last outing, it faced a formidable Madhya Pradesh but registered an easy 8-wicket win with 3 overs to spare. 

The top order of Mumbai is in good form, and during no stage of the match did they appear to be under any pressure. While Prithvi Shaw scored a half-century in the first game, it was Yashasvi Jaiswal in this one, scoring an unbeaten 66.

One area of concern for the Mumbai team is likely to be the bowling department, which can tend to crumble under quality opposition. If the team wants to have a real shot at lifting the trophy, the bowlers, especially Dhawal Kulkarni and Shams Mulani will need to perform better.

Mumbai Playing 11

Aman Khan, Dhawal Kulkarni, Hardik Tamore, Prithvi Shaw, Sarfaraz Khan, Shivam Dube, Sairaj Patil, Shams Mulani, Tushar Deshpande, Tanush Kotian, Yashasvi Jaiswal.


After an easy win against Assam in the first game, Vidarbha faltered in its last outing against Rajasthan. After being asked to bat first, Vidarbha could manage only 136 runs, despite a solid start given by Atharva Taide and Aman Mokhade. The target was easily chased down by Rajasthan with 9 wickets to spare.

The Vidarbha team lacks the big performers who could instill a sense of fear within the opponents. Aman Mokhade has been the star batsman for them so far, getting good starts, but has failed to convert those starts into a big score.

However, the weakest link for them is the bowling department, which has been giving away too many runs. Except for Akshay Karnewar, who has bowled some tight spells, the opposition has found no problems in scoring freely against Vidarbha bowlers. And they are likely to struggle further against an in-form Mumbai batting.

Akshay Karnewar, AV Wankhade, Aditya Sarwate, Akshay Wadkar, Aman Mokhade, Atharva Taide, Shubham Dubey, Siddhesh Wath, Yash Thakur, Darshan Nalkande, Jitesh Sharma, Umesh Yadav.

MCA vs VDB Toss Prediction

We reckon that the team winning the toss will like to bat first here. As the match is scheduled at 10 A. M., we might see some due early in the game, making it difficult for the bowlers to grip the ball.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at Rajkot has always been batting-friendly. The flat pitch offers consistent bounce and is unlikely to change much during the game. However, the spinners might find some aid from the rough patches later on. The weather is expected to be clear, with no rains forecast. Given the pitch and the conditions, we believe that a score of over 170 should be comfortable to defend. 

MCA vs VDB Betting Tips

We are backing Mumbai to win this one. The Vidarbha team lacks the quality players that can help them win this one. The Mumbai team is pretty confident after winning consecutive matches and looks like a well-oiled machine at this stage. 

Bet on a Mumbai win.
