The Match No. 64 of the Indian Playerzpot League 2023 will see Hyderabad take on the Bangalore team in a pulsating do-or-die fixture. The Hyderabad time is more or less out of contention for the knockout stages of the tournament but the same is not the case for the star-studded Bangalore team. With knockout stage places on the cards, V. Kohli & Co will do everything in their power to collect the two points.

Hyderabad are in 8th place in the league table, while Bangalore sits in the 5th with 12 points. Considering that Lucknow beat Mumbai and added more chaos to the table standings, Bangalore are now looking to make the most of this chaos. It does look like a cakewalk for Bangalore but considering the pressure and the hopes of a huge fan base it can be a tricky fixture.

Players to watch out for

F. Du Plessis (Bangalore)

Bangalore were in search of a big gun that can lead them to the eluded glory over the years and they went on to grab F. Du Plessis. A decision that has been fruitful for the team, they have got a captain, a leader, and most importantly a focal point in the batting sense. Du Plessis is the best batter this season would be an understatement owing to his consistent knocks. No wonder he is leading the orange cap race with a decent margin, clocking a total of 631. Needless to say, Bangalore will look to their skipper once again for inspiration in a must-win match.

G. Maxwell (Bangalore)

Whenever the team has needed Maxwell to deliver on short notice most of the time he has come up with the goods. In the last game against Rajasthan, he was the one who stitched a good partnership with Du Plessis and this pairing has seen the team reach the desired goals. With 384 runs in the 12 games played so far, Maxwell has without a doubt being has aced the anchor role in the team. The Aussie can also chip in with the ball thus making him a prominent pick in the players to watch out for list.

M. Siraj (Bangalore)

Leading the team’s bowling attack M. Siraj is undoubtedly the best pick for Bangalore. The Indian pacer has a good track record of picking up wickets in powerplay and crucial junctures of the game. Perhaps a count of 16 wickets is a bit less for a player like Siraj but needless to say, he can turn up the heat in an instant. It certainly won’t be a surprise if he rises to the top half of the purple cap race after the fixture against Hyderabad. And yes, it will be interesting to see how well he does perform against his own city.

B. Kumar (Hyderabad)

Hyderabad may be having a poor season and this is because their leaders have not been able to tackle the challenges head-on. Speaking of leaders, B. Kumar also known by the name of swing king lost his touch this season. Many did think he has done his bid and it was time for him to call it quits but he made a good comeback in the previous games even if was in a losing cause. The 5 wicket haul in the game against Gujarat was the perfect indicator that he has still got a lot to offer.
