Vidarbha came to this stage undefeated from the Plate Group, topping it. This group is considered the weakest in the tournament, but the team from Nagrup showed a dominant cricket in the five-match run.
If we look at the numbers of the group stage, Vidarbha looks pretty good with their incredible +4.967 gained in five games. However, everyone understands that such a result in the Plate Group isn’t a sign of pure dominance. Thus, Maharashtra’s +2.277 in five games in the Elite Group A is a more serious achievement. The team even overcame Tamil Nadu in this regard, but the face to face duel made the difference in the final standing.
Bookmakers consider the team from Pune a severe favourite in this clash. And that is fair enough as teams came through different groups. Betting on Maharashtra with a coefficient of about 1.5 is good, but the risky guys can try to believe in the underdog and multiply their bet by 2.8 times if Vidarbha wins.
