The Indian Playerzpot League 2023 could not have started with better games for the fans to enjoy. After an exhilarating opening weekend, the fixture that will round off this week will be the battle of heavyweights between Bangalore and Mumbai on April 2. This is possibly the biggest fixture in the tournament after Mumbai vs Chennai in terms of the popularity and the fan base involved. Needless to say that the match will be a cracking one as talented individuals from both teams will look to outplay each other.
Mumbai was sulking down the bottom of the 2022 season and will be looking for redemption this time around. Meanwhile, Bangalore’s hunt for their first-ever trophy is still on. Mumbai does have a balanced team but still went after C. Green at the auction spending a staggering INR 17.50 crores. While Banglore themselves picked a few talented individuals. In 30 previous matches, Mumbai has registered 17 wins better than 13 of Bangalore.
Players to watch out for
V. Kohli (Bangalore)
Former captain and the key guy player for Bangalore over the years, Kohli has been at the forefront of all the ups and downs the team has seen in its history. Popularly known as the run machine, with 6624 he is the leading run-getter in the t20 tournament’s history. No wonder that expectation from this player is ever so high as he has made it a habit for the fans to witness such carnage on a regular basis. Having recovered from a lean patch, Kohli himself will be eager to get into the action and maybe this time around he can win the title.
H. Patel (Bangalore)
Patel is one the experienced campaigner in the tournament with a long history with the Bangalore team. He is exceptional with the ball and often his variation skills have outdone the batters. With 32 wickets in the 2021 season, he bagged the purple cap but a somewhat inconsistent run hampered due to injury concerns saw him only pick 19 during the 2022 campaign. Nevertheless, Patel is an instrumental player for Bangalore and he will be looking forward to helping the team in reaching new heights this season.
S. Yadav (Mumbai)
Mister dependable and arguably the best T20 batter out there, SK Yadav was a beacon of hope in what was an underwhelming season for the Mumbai side. Despite coming off the bat in the middle order he was the one who notched up the most number for his team, he scored 303 runs in 8 games last season with an average of 43.29. It goes without saying that he is an unorthodox player and will surprise us with his batting skills this season. Mumbai will be banking on him to do heavy damage with his bat as they have a lot of unfinished business.
T. Verma (Mumbai)
Another young gun who displayed his character and talent when his team needed him the most. Arguably the best Mumbai player from the last season, Verma was at the heart of anything good or positive going Mumbai’s way. The young batter has a sense of calm persona that does help him get a better outcome on the pitch. Mumbai sure strike a bargain when they bagged him during the 2021 auction for INR 1.7 crore, Verma was the second-highest run-getter for his side scoring 397 runs in 14 games and this season is a big opportunity for the youngster to stamp his mark on this team.
