Madhya Pradesh will rely on Shubham Sharma and Rajat Patidar for a strong display with the bat. While Shubham accumulated 599 runs at 47, Patidar collected 565 runs at 47 and took the most catches (11) for the season.
Besides inflicting 28 dismissals with the gloves, Himanshu Mantri added 582 runs, including the highest score of 159 in his last seven First-Class games.
