Match prediction and cricket betting tips for West Zone vs South Zone Duleep Trophy Final 2022. The match will be played at the SNR College Cricket Ground, Coimbatore from the 21st of September 2022 onwards.
WZ vs SZ Team Previews
The West Zone are favorites to win the Duleep Trophy 2022 largely because of their batting. Prithvi Shaw is in great touch with 315 runs to his name. No one else has 250 also and so he is the big wicket that South Zone will be after. Ajinkya Rahane, Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Shams Mulani are some of the other batters that have done well in the Duleep Trophy so far.
The depth in the lineup is fantastic and we think West Zone's batting is going to be hard to stop.
Gaja, Unadkat, and Mulani are the three bowlers that will lead the attack for the West Zone. All three of them have been able to pick up wickets regularly and will hope to do the same here. All of the bowlers seem to require some assistance from the surface, though, and we doubt they are going to get too much of that.
West Zone Playing 11
Atit Sheth, Ajinkya Rahane, Chintan Gaja, Het Patel, Panchal, Jaydev Unadkat, Sarfaraz Khan, Shreyas Iyer, Shams Mulani, Tanush Kotian, Yashasvi Jaiswal.
South Zone deserves to be in the Final but it is clearly the underdog here. The batting lineup pales in comparison to the West Zone but there are a couple of promising players. Ravi Teja, Mayank Aggarwal, Hanuma Vihari, and Baba Inderjith should not be taken lightly.
They all have the talent to score big runs but one of them will have to play at their very best.
The bowling attack seems to be a bit on the weaker side with R Sai Kishore the only real threat. This is where the South Zone could struggle and end up really falling behind in the contest.
South Zone Playing 11
Baba Indrajith, Basil Thampi, Cheepurapalli Stephen, Rohan Kunnummal, Ravi Teja, H Vihari, Krishnappa Gowtham, Mayank Agarwal, Manish Pandey, Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore, Ricky Bhui.

Pitch and Conditions
The weather forecast for Coimbatore is quite good and we should be able to get most of the match without any weather delays. The pitch is going to be flat and good for batting with more help for the spinners as the footmarks develop. Getting a big total in the first inning is going to be key to winning the match.
WZ vs SZ Betting Tips
We are going to bet on the West Zone to win. They have a much stronger batting lineup and their bowling is also quite threatening. The South Zone batting lineup is not too bad itself but it looks outgunned against the West Zone team in all departments.
Bet on West Zone to win.
