Himachal Pradesh will take on Mumbai at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. The final of the 2022 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy will get underway at 16:30 local time on Saturday 5th November.
After being knocked out in the preliminary quarter finals stage in November 2021, Himachal Pradesh have gone three stages further in this year’s tournament. They are unbeaten in this campaign and will be full of confidence ahead of this final against Mumbai.
Middle order runs from Sumeet Verma (51 runs from 25 balls), Akash Vasisht (43 runs from 25 balls) and Pankaj Jaswal (27 runs from 16 balls) took Himachal Pradesh to 176-7 in the semi-final against Punjab. Vasisht has scored 191 runs across this campaign and the pressure will be on him to deliver at Eden Gardens.
32 year old pace bowler Rishi Dhawan took 3-25 and left-arm spinner Mayank Dagar took 2-27 in Thursday’s semi-final victory in Kolkata. Pankaj Jaswal conceded 47 runs from three overs but the rest of the bowling attack will carry confidence from their performance against Punjab into this game.

There was a comfortable victory for Mumbai over Vidarbha on Thursday evening with the victory margin five wickets with 19 balls remaining. Mumbai finished top of Group A with six victories and only one defeat. They have a batting line-up of India internationals who will be used to playing in a high profile game like this.
Shreyas Iyer backed up his 40 from 30 balls against Saurashtra on Tuesday in the quarter finals with 73 runs from 44 balls against Vidarbha in Thursday’s semi-final. With both of these innings coming at Eden Gardens, he will be eager to get into the middle again in this match.
