The Gujarat team will lock horns with the Hyderabad team in the 62nd match of the Indian Playerzpot League at Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad on 15th May, Monday. Gujarat are having a great campaign, while Hyderabad are having a torrid outing this season thus far. Gujarat have almost booked their playoffs spot with eight wins and four losses and are currently at the top of the points table with 16 points after 12 matches. Hyderabad, on the other hand, have registered four wins and six losses, and are at the ninth spot with 8 points after 10 matches.

In the upcoming match, Gujarat will look to officially book their playoffs and Hyderabad will hope to bounce back from defeat.

Players to watch out for

#1 R Khan (Gujarat): R Khan was considered only as a bowler, but now he has been gradually becoming a complete all-rounder. The 24-year-old displayed a brilliant all-round performance against Mumbai, scalping four wickets while conceding 30 runs at an economy rate of 7.50 in four overs and smashing 79* off 32 balls at an astounding strike rate of 246.88. However, his effort went in vain as Gujarat lost to Mumbai by 27 runs. Khan is currently the highest wicket-taker of the season, scalping 23 wickets, including a four-wicket haul, at an average of 16.78 and an economy rate of 8.04 in 12 matches. R Khan is the lone warrior in the spin bowling attack of Gujarat’s line-up. He has been taking wickets in the middle overs as well as at the death and can turn the game around on its head with his spin bowling. R Khan’s ability to hit a few blows in the lower order gives Gujarat’s batting depth. R Khan will look to emulate similar performances in the upcoming match against Hyderabad.

#2 A Samad (Hyderabad): A Samad has been playing the role of the finisher to the best of his ability in the last few games. In the previous match against Lucknow, Samad scored an unbeaten 37 off 25 balls at a strike rate of 148. He formed a crucial 68-run partnership with H Klaseen (47 off 29) to take the team to a good total of 183/6. However, his effort went in vain as Hyderabad lost to Lucknow. However, Samad has been very impactful with the bat in the middle over in the last few games. This season, A. Samad has aggregated 168 runs at an average of 55 and a strike rate of 132 in seven matches. He has been one of the improved players from the season of the tournament. Samad has turned out to be one of the reliable batters in the lower order who can hit a few blows and turn the game on its head by accelerating the innings at death. Samad can be a potent threat to Gujarat’s bowling line-up.

#3 D Miller (Gujarat): D Miller has been one of the pillars of Gujarat’s batting line-up since the last edition of the Indian Playerzpot League. When the top order failed to deliver, Miller stepped up and unleashed his firepower. He often pulled the team out of trouble in crunch situations. In the previous match against Mumbai, the 33-year-old scored 41 off 26 balls at a strike rate of 157.69 but his effort went in vain. This season, Miller has aggregated 242 at an average of 48.40 and a strike rate of 151.25 in 11 matches so far. D. Miller brings stability in the middle order when the top order fails to deliver. He is one of the most reliable batters in the middle. He will look to put up an impactful performance in the upcoming match against Hyderabad.

#4 H Klaasen (Hyderabad): H Klaasen has been one of the impactful players for Hyderabad in the ongoing edition of the Indian Playerzpot League. In the previous match against Lucknow, Klaasen scored 47 off 29 balls, comprising three fours and as many sixes at a strike rate of 162.07. However, his effort went in vain. This season, H Klaasen has scored 262 runs, including a fifty, at an average of 43.27 and a strike rate of 180.69 in nine matches so far. He has second best strike rate in this season of the tournament. Klaasen mostly plays in the middle-order of the batting line-up and is a hard hitter who can accelerate the innings in the middle overs and as well as at death. He can pull the team out of the crunch situation and turn the game on its head. H Klaasen could be a potent threat to Gujarat’s bowling line-up.
