The Indian Playerzpot League 2023 will see Chennai locking horns against Rajasthan in the league stage encounter on April 12 at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium. The Rajasthan team has been on a song with a great start to the season, with three wins out of two, sitting top of the pile they are currently leading the table standings. On the other hand, Chennai seems to have buried the horrors of last season with an optimistic start for themselves, with 2 wins out of 3 games they are looking strong this time around.
Rajasthan has seen their young players and the senior most players picking up the pace from the get-go. Y. Jaiswal, J. Buttler, and S. Samson have been doing really well in the batting order, while Y. Chahal and T. Boult have held their own in bowling. Coming off with such a good start, an away fixture at Chennai can be intimidating which will see the fans enjoy the best cricket from the two sides.
Players to watch out for
R. Gaikwad (Chennai)
The bustling opener batting for Chennai has given a good account of himself since the start of this season. With 189 runs in three games, he has been the guy to which his team looks to score off in the powerplay overs and if needed play a long knock. He currently sits second in the orange cap race and will be eyeing the top spot. Gaikwad has hit the most number of sixes (16) in the league so far, so the caution is out the window for him as he looks hungry to take on any bowling attack.
T. Deshpande (Chennai)
Chennai this season is looking to go for an unorthodox approach as they eye to get the future stars into their lineup. T. Desphande is one of the few who have made it in the team this season, the young pacer had a somewhat pale start to his campaign being bashed for 51 runs against Gujarat. However, he has bounced back with back-to-back good performances in the next two games against Lucknow and Mumbai. With 4 wickets bagged so far this season, Deshpande could be a hidden gem for Chennai that shines the brightest.
Y. Jaiswal (Rajasthan)
Y. Jaiswasl has been on an upward trajectory since the start of the Indian Playerzpot League 2023. Partnering alongside J. Buttler he has surely fed off of his energy. In just three games played so far, he has registered 125 runs and is amongst the leading run-getter this season. With a striker rate of 164.47 and an average of 41 runs per game has injected the young opening batter with confidence and Chennai would want to keep him quiet.
Y. Chahal (Rajasthan)
Rajasthan has struck gold in their search for a quality spinner. Y. Chahal ever since his move to Rajasthan from Bangalore has been making positive strides and this season is no different. He is amongst the leading wicket-takers with 8 wickets to his name. Not to mention he is also closing in on the record for most wickets in the history of the tournament. Chennai would be hoping that Chahal may have an off day when playing against them.
A. Rahane (Chennai)
Rahane is considered a player who is past his prime and is seen as nothing more than a utility player. However, Rahane himself is on a roll with a fine display of batting this season, reminding the fans of his quality and his class. He truly revealed his colours when he faced Mumbai at his home ground in Wankhede, he belted the Mumbai bowlers as his knock of 61 runs was decisive in Chennai’s win over their arch-rivals.
