The rivalry between Rizvi Springfield (Bandra) and IES VN Sule Guruji (Dadar) will resume today as both schools lock horns in the Mumbai Schools Sports Association (MSSA)-Mumbai Indians Harris Shield Elite Division final at the Matunga Gymkhana

Rizvi are keen to continue their dominance by winning the title for the fifth year in a row.

“We hope that we keep the winning momentum going. I am expecting it to be a close match as both teams have some really good players,” said Rizvi coach Raju Pathak.

However, VN Sule Guruji coach Gopal Koli is confident of breaking Rizvi’s supremacy this time to avenge their last season’s defeat.

“Last year we missed the title, but I’m 100 per cent sure of winning it this year,” he said.

While Rizvi have top players like Armaan Jaffer, Prithvi Shaw, Usama Parker, Sidak Singh, Atif Shaikh and Piyush Nath, VN Sule Guruji will bank on Shreyas Kemkar, Om Jadhav, Dhruva Vedak, Vaishnav Narvekar and Tanush Kotian to come good.
