The final of the inaugural edition of the Saurashtra Premier League is about to be played between the Zalawad Royals and the Sorath Lions. The competition in the league stages was surprisingly even and both the teams had to play a semi-final of sorts to make their way into the final.
The Zalawad Royals will be playing back to back matches due to the tight scheduling while the Sorath Lions have had a couple of days to recover after their previous match. This is not something that should make a lot of difference to the players since it is a T20 match but the Sorath Lions carry a small advantage with them.
The presence of Cheteshwar Pujara in the final of the Saurashtra Premier League is something the organizers will be very happy about since it will attract a lot of attention to the event.
A comprehensive ten-wicket victory was followed by a thrilling win against the Kutch Warriors to help make their way into the SPL 2019 final. It was a match where the Zalawad Royals bowled very well to contain the Sorath Lions to just 129. This was a score that could have been tricky but an opening partnership of 74 between Sheldon Jackson and Cheteshwar Pujara made sure there was nothing to worry about in that regard also.
The Zalawad Royals did end up losing a few wickets towards the end of their chase and ended up winning with just three balls to spare but despite that thrilling finish, the Zalawad Royals were in control of the match for the majority of the overs.
The last time these two teams met against each other, the Sorath Lions won by 8 wickets and dominated the entire game. The Zalawad Royals will have that result fresh in their memories when they take the ground for the final and not take the Sorath Lions lightly.
The template for success for the Zalawad Royals is straightforward. Their bowlers need to keep things tight and their openers need to score the bulk of the runs. The bowling is led by Sunil Yadav, Devang Karamta, Jay Chauhan, and Kishan Kugasiya.
The attack has been disciplined without being overly threatening but at this level of cricket, this attack is nothing to be ashamed of. There is not too much batting after Pujara and Jackson. If the openers fall cheaply then players like Samarth Vyas, Prerak Mankad, and Jyot Chhaya will struggle to compete on their own.

The Sorath Lions have played some inconsistent cricket during the Saurashtra Premier League but have strung together enough victories to find themselves in the final. They are now competing against the Zalawad Royals, a side that they have beaten very comfortably in the group stages.
That was a match in which the Sorath Lions were able to pick up Cheteshwar Pujara and Sheldon Jackson for single-digit scores. To win in the final, they will need to do the same. There is no rocket science or complex theory behind what the Sorath Lions need to do and we expect them to be aware of that.
Here is the thing, though, if the Lions are not able to get that breakthrough then they may find themselves in a world of trouble.
There are no big-name players who have the experience of performing under pressure on a regular basis. Players like Tarang Gohel, Himalaya Barad, and Divyaraj Chauhan have impressed but we don’t think they are going to be able to match the Royals if they get a large score.
The Sorath Lions have shown a tendency to crumble under pressure in previous matches as well.
Chirag Jani has been one of the few players in this side that has been able to perform under any situation. He contributes with runs in the lower-middle order and bowls his full quota of overs as well. If anything, he may need to come up the order and take more charge of the inning.
The bowling lineup of Bhavyesh Donga, Chetan Sakariya, Chirag Jani, and Dharmendrsinh Jadeja has done well and enjoyed success against the Zalawad Royals earlier in the tournament. They will hope to do the same this time around although they may find the opposition better prepared.

The team winning the toss is likely to want to bat first. The pitch is starting to slow up and having runs on the board is always better in a final.

Zalawad Royals vs Sorath Lions Saurashtra Premier League Final 2019 is going to be played at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot. The weather is expected to be hot and clear on match day.
The pitch at Rajkot has started to slow up and we could have a low-scoring final. A score of about 140 is going to be very difficult to chase and we expect the spinners to play a major role after the ball starts to get a little old.
The Dream 11 team for the Saurashtra Premier League final between the Zalawad Royals and the Sorath Lions is based on our belief that the contest will be low-scoring in nature and tilted towards the spinners. We don't expect too many changes to the playing eleven either from the sides that took the field in their previous matches.
Wicketkeeper: Sheldon Jackson is an easy choice here thanks to his excellent form and good keeping abilities. Sheldon Jackson opens the batting, is in good form, and has been playing a crucial role for the Zalawad Royals in the SPL.
Batsmen: Cheteshwar Pujara is the obvious choice and everyone is going to have him in their Dream 11 team. We have him too. We have also picked Himalaya Barad, Aryandev Jhala, and Jyot Chhaya as the other three batsmen in the side. Barad scored some valuable runs in the previous match and is also an opening batsman. Jyot Chhaya and Aryandev are middle-order batters that we believe could be crucial in this match if a few early wickets fall. These are the two players that could help differentiate your Dream 11 team.
All-rounders: We have picked just two all-rounders for this match instead of the usual three simply because three compelling options are not available. Chirag Jani and Prerak Mankad are the two players we have chosen. Both of these players contribute in all aspects of the game and have been in decent form. Chirag Jani is one player that we believe could be sent up the order in this match and thus have more of an opportunity to earn Dream 11 points.
bowlers: Chriag Sakariya, bhavyesh Donga, Sunil Yadav, and Karan Patel are the four bowlers we have picked in our side. Sakariya and Donga had a good outing against the Zalawad Royals earlier in the tournament. Sunil Yadav has been a regular wicket-taker for the Zalawad Royals and deserves a place for sure.
Captain and Vice-Captain: We have gone for the safe option here and picked Cheteshwar Pujara as captain. Sheldon Jackson is our vice-captain for this match.
