Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019 – VID vs HIM Fantasy Preview

Usually by this time of the year, we’re done with monsoons in India, but there have been a lot of rains around in recent weeks, which hasn’t allowed a lot of cricket in the 2019 Vijay Hazare Trophy so far. In this latest Elite Cross Pool game, we have a match-up between Himachal Pradesh and Vidarbha, both of who haven’t had too much of cricketing action this season.

Both teams have had 4 scheduled games each, and had 3 games lost to rain each. Both also have a loss each in the only games they got action, which means one of them will be looking to open their account in the 2019 Vijay Hazare Trophy today. Keep reading for our complete Fantain (Use Code “READ123”) fantasy preview of the VID vs HIM game…

  • Head to head in Vijay Hazare Trophy, these teams are tied 1-1.
  • Wasim Jaffer – Four 50+ scores in last 8 games for Abahani Ltd.
  • Akshay Wakhare – two 5-fers in recent 2019 Duleep Trophy.


With the bat, Vidarbha is going to be highly dependent on the experienced duo of opener Faiz Fazal and captain Wasim Jaffer. Probably the best ever batsmen in India domestic cricket history, Jaffer failed with 1 in his only previous game in this tournament while Fazal scored 72(96). Drop Ganesh Satish as he has just 2 double-digit scores in his last 10 games.

Instead, pick wicket-keeper Jitesh Sharma who has a few forties in his last 10 games and opens the batting for Vidarbha. With the ball, Umesh Yadav was picked for the Indian test series against South Africa so he won’t be available here. Akshay Wakhare has two fifers in the recent Duleep Trophy and also picked up 2 wickets in the last completed game for Vidarbha, so he’s a good fantasy team pick.

Himachal Pradesh

Captain and wicket-keeper Ankush Bains had 3 fifties in 6 games in the 2019 Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy earlier this year and he will open the innings for Himachal Pradesh here as well. He has plenty of experience and this young age and is a good choice along with opening partner Prashant Chopra, who scored 48 in the last completed game and also recently made an IPL debut in the latest season for Rajasthan Royals.

Another player who I will include in my Fantain (Use Code “READ123”) fantasy team because of a lot of IPL experience, is Rishi Dhawan. He picked up 1 wicket and scored 12 in the middle order but we know how much of a part he will have in every game. Like him, another all-rounder with plenty IPL experience is Pankaj Jaiswal who picked 2 wickets in that last game, along with 13 runs in just 4 balls.
