Gwalior: Aligarh Muslim University (Northern Stallions) take on VBS University Jaunpur (Eastern Eagles) in a must-win group A game of the Toyota University Cricket Championship here on Sunday. With local side Jiwaji University, Gwalior getting the better of Jaunpur by 12 runs on Saturday night, nothing short of a victory will do for the Aligarh boys.
A defeat against Jaunpur can spoil Aligarh’='s party. With two defeats in as many matches, the tournament is well-nigh over for the Jaunpur boys but Sunday will be D-Day for the Stallions. AMU were handsomely thrashed by a much superior Jain University Bengaluru in their first match but Sunday will be a battle between almost equals.
New ball bowlers Mansoor Ahmad and Ravindra Singh will have to take the initiative for Aligarh. Both were impressive against Bengaluru -- Ravindra gave away only 11 runs in his 4 overs and Mansoor conceded only 17. Both picked a wicket each.
