The Gujarat team will be locking horns against the Kolkata team in match no 13 of the Indian Playerzpot League 2023. The defending champions Gujarat has made it clear that their trophy-winning season was not a one-off and they are a legitimate contender this time around. With 2 wins out of 2, the Gujarat team is sitting at the top of the league table standings. They will be eyeing yet another win.

Kolkata meanwhile are starting to find balance in the team in the absence of their key player and captain S. Iyer. Having been defeated in their opener against Punjab by the DLS method, they bounced back in style in their second game against Bangalore in home settings at Eden Gardens emerging victorious in what was a dominant display. Going against the champions Gujarat, they will need nothing less than their best to have a positive outcome.

Players to watch out for

S. Sudharsan (Gujarat)

In a game where Gujarat’s top batting order crumbled down, it was the young gun S. Sudharsan who took the charge of the run chase and held his own against the Delhi bowling attack. He paired up with V. Shankar and formed a much-needed partnership. He scored an impressive 62 of 48 balls, thus playing the anchor role for his team. Not only he scored the runs but also was on the pitch to see off the run chase alongside D. Miller. The 21-year-old has a lot in him in terms of talent and skills and maybe this year he is about to crack his shell and burst onto the scene.

R. Khan (Gujarat)

R. Khan is a spin master and he rightly proved this right in the game vs Delhi. The Afghanistan spinner picked up 3 wickets and was a constant thorn in Delhi’s batting side when they were up against him. Overall, he already has 5 wickets to his name in the 2 games played so far thus building up momentum for the latter stages of the tournament. One thing we have come to know about R. Khan is a surprising hitter of the ball and can clutch up the wins for his team if needed.

R. Singh (Kolkata)

R. Singh is not the name when you think of the Kolkata team’s heavy-hitting contingent. But since last year, the 24-year-old is making quite a name for himself. Often at the time, he has been a decisive factor for his team and he was once again in the spotlight when Kolkata was struggling at home against Banglore. Rinku had to dig deep keeping his wicket in hand, he was soon joined by S. Thakur who unleashed wrath upon the Banglore bowlers. R. Singh himself had 46 runs, playing a vital knock that saw them put a winning total on the board.

V. Chakarvarthy (Kolkata)

Kolkata team certainly is known for their extensive and strong bowling lineup and V. Chakarvarthy is now spreading his wings as a potent spin bowling option. He was on a rampage when Banglore visited Kolkata at Eden Gardens, he was the one who dismissed the likes of F. Du Plessis, V, Kohli, and H. Patel, as he went on to complete his 4-wicket haul in the 4 overs he bowled, playing a crucial role in a thumping win.
