THE PREDICTION

Assam could mathematically still finish second in Group B, but their negative net run rate will likely ensure that even if they beat Odisha, qualification to the knockout stage is beyond them. However, Assam do come into this match on a high after beating Bengal and will be confident of a big victory here against a side who have lost all four of their Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy games, taking just 15 wickets over the course of the tournament so far with a top batting score of 147. Compare that to Assam, who hit 233 runs against Jharkhand on the same ground that will host this contest and it’s easy to see why they are expected to win this one comfortably.
