The Hyderabad team will take on the Punjab team in the 14th match of the Indian Playerzpot League 2023 at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on 9th April, Sunday. Hyderabad has had a disappointing campaign so far with two defeats on the trot against Rajasthan and Lucknow. In contrast, Punjab had a great start to the season with two consecutive wins against Kolkata and Rajasthan. Hyderabad is currently in the last position and Punjab is placed second in the points table. The match between Hyderabad and Punjab is expected to be exciting as the former team will aim to bounce back from two consecutive defeats, while Punjab will look to continue their winning run.

Players to watch out for

R. Tripathi (Hyderabad): R. Tripathi was the top scorer for Hyderabad in the previous match against Lucknow, scoring 35 off 41 balls. It was a slow knock by him as he was playing at a strike rate of 85.37. Tripathi struggled to bat on a difficult pitch and hit only four fours. However, Hyderabad is expected to continue to have faith in him to perform well in the upcoming match against Punjab. R. Tripathi is a reliable batter who plays calculated innings depending on the situation of the game. He can accelerate the innings in the middle overs. R. Tripathi will look to perform better in the upcoming match against Chennai.

S. Dhawan (Punjab): S. Dhawan is in good form in the ongoing season of the Indian Playerzpot League 2023. In the previous match against Rajasthan, Dhawan scored an unbeaten 86 off 56 balls at a strike rate of 153.57. The flamboyant left-handed batter anchored the innings well and helped the team to post a solid total on the board. Dhawan is an attacking top-order batter who can accelerate the innings in the middle overs. Dhawan is one of the most consistent run-getters in the history of the tournament. His aggressive style of play can pose threat to Hyderabad’s bowling line-up.

A. Markram (Hyderabad): A. Markram had a disappointing outing as he was dismissed for a golden duck in his captaincy debut against Lucknow. However, one can expect him to make a comeback in the upcoming against Punjab. Markram is an attacking batter who can accelerate innings in the middle overs. A. Markram has been in good form over the last few months and recently scored an ODI century against the Netherlands. Markram will look to make an impact against Punjab.

K. Rabada (Punjab): K. Rabada is expected to feature in Punjab’s third match of the season after missing out first two games due to international commitments. Rabada’s return to the side can strengthen the bowling line-up, especially the pace bowling attack. Rabada was the highest wicket-taker for Punjab in the last season of the Indian Playerzpot League, scalping 23 wickets in 13 matches. Rabada has a good pace and can deliver the ball at good lengths. His ability to deliver yorkers can make him a potent threat to Hyderabad’s batting line-up.
