High flying Chennai team will be up against the Kolkata team in their next league stage encounter of the Indian Playerzpot League 2023. The match will be played at the Eden Gardens with Kolkata playing with a clear home advantage. Chennai is one of the most consistent teams this season all thanks to their resurgence and trust in playing talented young individuals. There is a reason they are placed in the No.3 spot of the League table and eyeing to shoot themselves further up top.

Kolkata on the other hand, have been inconsistent and somewhat lost its way. They are winless in the last three games which puts pressure on captain N. Rana. The Kolkata team is in desperate need of a win and a win against Chennai would boost their morale and confidence. It will also come down to how the captains of both teams play their cards, and this fixture sure will be a cracker.

Players to watch out for

V. Iyer (Kolkata)

V. Iyer is often used as the impact player in the Indian Playerzpot League 2023. However, his major contribution came during the game against Mumbai where he hit a century. This was only the second hundred scored by a Kolkata player after B. Mc Cullum. V. Iyer is no ordinary cricket player but rather goes by an unconventional approach which does play into his hands. Kolkata will be hoping that he ante up the scoring rate and get more consistent runs.

D. Conway (Chennai)

With 258 runs coming in just 6 games from your top-order batter is proof that they have a stable pair of hands to rely on. Conway has been brilliant for the Chennai team, where he has initiated an attacking intent from the get-go. In the last game against Hyderabad, he was on song with his bat again, he smashed 77* off 57 balls. Kolkata who has been suspect of not having to most reliable bowling attack will need to be on their toes when they face D. Conway.

R. Jadeja (Chennai)

R. Jadeja is arguably the best all-rounder in Indian cricket but this title has been under scrutiny due to his missed opportunity and injury concerns. However, the ace spinner has made a strong comeback this season with Chennai and is back on his usual business of picking up key wickets when his team needs him. In the win against Hyderabad, he scalped 3 wickets toppling the opening order of the Hyderabad batting lineup. One thing is certain, this certainly was a good comeback performance but one can say his best is yet to come.

T. Deshpande (Chennai)

Chennai has been under a rebuilding process and is now bringing up new faces who can lead the team in the near future and T. Despande is one of the new faces who has taken up the opportunity. In first few encounters the young pacer was hesitant but he has now grown more confident, in the game against Bangalore he scalped 3 wickets, in total, he now has 10 wickets to his name. Kolkata will have their task cut out in facing the challenge from Deshpande.
