The much anticipated Indian Playerzpot League will kick off on March 31, 2023. The opening encounter between the defending champions Gujarat and 4-time winner Chennai is the best opener for which fans could’ve asked. Gujarat was a new team who only played their first season last year against all odds and clinched the title in their debut season, while Chennai who are known for their domination were struggling at the bottom of the standings failing to make it into the knockout rounds.
A new season brings hope for redemption for Chennai, who will surely want to put their best foot forward with a positive start to their season and get the momentum going. Gujarat on the other hand, under the leadership of H. Pandya, will want to start their season where they left which is on a winning note. Surprisingly when both these teams clashed in the previous edition, it was Gujarat who took home both the wins from the two games they played. So the onus is on Chennai to make a comeback with a statement win.
Players to watch out for
D. Chahar is a proven T20 pacer, he has been a differential player whenever he plays for his team. His absence due to the injury last time around did leave a void in Chennia’s bowling attack. However, with him back in the mix, Chennai would be feeling a whole lot better now. Chahar has 59 wickets in 63 matches thus statistically he is been a proven player who can shoulder the responsibility of a bowling attack and that is what Chennai would expect from the pacer.
B. Stokes is one player who always makes things happen for his team on the pitch, over the years there have been very few players who can destroy bowling attacks for fun and at the same time are quite comfortable with the ball in their hand. Stokes, definitely was on the wish list for Chennai as they broke the bank to get hold of him at the auctions. They splashed a staggering INR 16.25 crore on the player and with that sum invested in the player, they will be hoping for a good return as well.
Perhaps the most lethal white ball batter in the recent history of cricket. S. Gill is a master of the art called taking the game to the bowlers. The young Indian batter had a breakthrough in the Indian teams scoring centuries in both T20I and ODI cricket. Moreover, he displayed his skill and quality in the title-winning season scoring 483 runs. Gill has all the makings of a great cricket player, and if he is able to repeat what he has been doing regularly on the international stage, a lot of bowlers will be in trouble this season.
R. Khan is a gem of a spin bowler who can slot in any T20 team and help them level up, that is what exactly he did last season with Gujarat. Known for his technical abilities on the ball and his spell-binding magic he was able to make a name for himself as a proven spinner of the Indian Playerzpot League 2022. With 19 wickets to his name for the last season, perhaps Khan himself would be thinking he should have got more, and therefore he becomes a greater threat to the opposition.
