The Indian Playerzpot League 2023 will see Kolkata go up against the Hyderabad team at the Eden Gardens Stadium. Kolkata will be feeling that they have now begun their season with a run of positive results, a crushing win against Bangalore, and a nail-biting win against the defending champions Gujarat. Hyderabad themselves are off the block with a win this campaign in their third fixture vs Punjab, with an expectation of winning the next one.
Kolkata after their recent winning run has climbed up the league standings, currently sitting at the No. 3 spot with 2 wins out of 3. On the other hand, Hyderabad despite their win against Punjab are languishing in the No. 9 place of the standings. Kolkata does come out as favourites to win this game but with the league notorious for surprises and thrillers nothing can be said of certain about the end result.
Players to watch out for
R. Singh (Kolkata)
The young Indian batter has shown signs of potential to be one of the future stars and this season it can be said that he is shedding his own skin and truly playing a champion’s knock. The five consecutive sixes he hammered in the win against Gujarat just spoke a lot about his character and his ability as a cricket player. 48* of 21 balls, he lit up the Indian Playerzpot League that has got the world talking about the young Indina batter.
S. Narine (Kolkata)
Talking about the Kolkata team, they have got themselves a trump card in S. Narine. The experienced West Indies spin maestro has often being the point of difference for his team over the years and he continues to do so. He may have started the season with a few rusty games, but he was in his element in the game vs Gujarat. With 3 wickets in his 4-over spell, he made a statement that his tricky and magical spin can still do the damage and that is exactly what Koklata will be hoping from their spin maestro.
V. Iyer ( Kolkata)
If not for V. Iyer’s heavy hitting during the initial stages in the win over Gujarat, Kolkata might have suffered a loss. Often playing a floater role in Kolkata’s batting lineup, it looks like they have found the sweet spot in bringing him at No.3. With 83 runs of just 40 deliveries, he was a thorn in Gujarat’s bowling side. He may not be the most consistent batter for them, but he sure does pack a punch that can trade blows against the heaviest of oppositions.
M. Markande (Hyderabad)
Hyderabad have had a torrid start to the Indian Playerzpot League 2023 campaign. With just a single win out of 3 games, they are looking for inspiration. However, in their dominant win over Punjab, their bowling star M. Markande did have the game of his life, the 25-year-old spinner took out the entirety of Punjab’s middle order batting, scalping 4 wickets in his 4-over spell. Moreover, he was the most economical bowler for his side with an economy rate of 3.75. Kolkata will need to be on its toes when facing the mystery spinner.
