UP Ranji team arrives in capital
Odisha having lost humiliatingly to Punjab in the second encounter at Mohali-the first match against baroda ended in a draw-faces Uttar Pradesh in their third match of the season and it is said to be a do or die battle for the team. Odisha with no points so far in the season faces the danger of sliding down still further next season. UP with six points from two matches would fight for their third consecutive win. Of course, both Suresh Raina and Praveen Kumar, waiting to be recalled to Team India for the test series against West Indies will not be playing against the hosts at Sambalpur.
