With yet another exciting game of T20 cricket, the Chennai team will be taking on Punjab in the closing half of the league stages of the converted T20 tournament, Indian Playerzpot League 2023. Chennai are pushing their limits and are focused on the target up ahead, they are well within touching distance of the other teams of the top half. Whereas, Punjab is in need of spark and inspiration as the competition will only get tough from here on.

Chennai despite the loss against Rajasthan is with 10 points and in 4th place in the league table standings. On the other hand, you have Punjab who have been showing signs of being a good team with consistency being their major concern. All is not lost for either of the teams and getting a foothold in the race to finish in the top 4.

Players to watch out for

S. Dube (Chennai)

The explosive all-rounder known for bringing in the heat with his bat has been improving game after game. Dube usually has to come down the batting order and do the heavy hitting in what’s left of the game. In what was a lost game against Rajasthan, the player still managed to keep the game interesting as he went about his business of hitting the ball out of the park. It was indeed a valiant effort of 53 in 33 balls, as he already has bagged a total of 236 runs this campaign.

T. Deshpande (Chennai)

Despite being hit hard in the loss against Rajasthan, one thing about T. Deshpande remained constant, wickets. In what was a below-par show of cricket by the Chennai team, he still managed to bag 2 wickets. With these 2 wickets, he took his overall tally to 14 wickets in 8 games. No matter the circumstances, the young pacer seems to find a way to get a major breakthrough and be the point of difference for his team.

A. Taide (Punjab)

No wonder a target of 258 would be nearly impossible for Punjab to chase against Lucknow but still even when the odds were against them, the young all-rounder A. Taide rose to the occasion. He was not fazed by the fact his team is probably going to lose and went about his business with the bat, a thunderous 66 off 36 balls saw Punjab make an effort to try and reach the target. In a season where S. Dhawan’s fitness has been an issue it was about time someone started pulling the weight in the top batting order.

S. Curran (Punjab)

He has been leading the team in the absence of S. Dhawan and he has done a pretty good job so far. Known for batting well and doing damage with the bat, perhaps it is time that Punjab let the English all-rounder play his natural game without any added responsibilities. He has been bowling well in the tournament so far and his team will be looking towards him to produce the goods now that they are entering the business end of the tournament.
