The Rohinton Baria Inter-University Champions Jain University take on VBS University from Jaunpur in the second clash of the Toyota University Cricket Championship, on Tuesday in what may well be seen as a David vs Goliath battle.
While Jain University - known as Southern Champs in TUCC - have stellar players who showcased their superb form to beat Mumbai University en route to the Inter-University trophy, the team from Jaunpur - Eastern Eagles - comprises of players who are determined to make a mark for themselves at this level. VBS University crashed out of the Rohinton Baria Trophy at the quarter-final stage and have since been itching to get back on winning ways.
Led by Vijendra Singh, VBS University is a team which prides in overbearing on the opposition through the collective efforts of all players. In fact, even in their loss against Jiwaji University in the quarter-final, the margin of just 15 showed that the team fought till the end. With players like Vijendra and all-rounder Gulab Nishad (36 runs and 2 wickets vs Jiwaji), this team can bring down their rivals from bigger cities with poise and ease that their rivals may never suspect them of possessing.
