Assam will clash against Bihar in the Group E match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2023 at DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai on Tuesday, October 17.
Assam is entering this contest on the back of a close defeat against Odisha in their season opener. Chasing 227 runs, Assam looked in the contest for the most part of the game but failed to go past the winning line.
Riyan Parag, Sumit Ghadigaonkar, and Akash Sengupta starred with the bat, while Pacer Mukhtar Hussain was the only hero with the ball in hand. They would be eager to hit the right chords and get back to the winning ways.
On the other hand, Bihar suffered a nine-wicket defeat against Chandigarh. Batting first, they posted 171 runs in their 20 overs. However, the bowlers failed to create momentum and as a result, lost the game by nine wickets.
The Babul Kumar-led side would be determined to make a strong comeback and add some crucial points before it gets too late for them.
