The Indian Playerzpot League 2023 is now well into the progression stage where the teams have traded the early blows and are now looking to go all in. In yet another fascinating encounter we will see the Lucknow team go up against Punjab at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow on March 15. This will be the fourth round of the fixture for both teams.
Speaking of the progress in the famed T20 tournament so far, the Lucknow team has been steady in getting early wins. Not to forget their last over thriller win vs Bangalore, this win saw them climb to the No. 2 spot in the table standings, whereas the Punjab team under S. Dhawan had a few bumps along the way and is currently 6th in the table.
Players to watch out for
S. Dhawan (Punjab)
Despite the back-to-back losses in the league stages of the tournament, the captain S. Dhawan has been going full throttle in the batting front. The Gabbar of Indian cricket has displayed his fearless attitude whenever he is on the pitch but unfortunately, his team is lagging behind on certain fronts. With 233 runs in 4 games he is the Orange Cap holder and he sure would want to go back to winning way in the next encounter vs Lucknow.
M. Wood (Lucknow)
M. Wood has started the Indian Playerzpot League 2023 in a terrific fashion. Despite playing one less game than his competition for the Purple Cap, he is still in the second position with 9 wickets to his name in 3 games he has played. Even in a high-scoring game against Bangalore, where all the Lucknow bowlers were expensive Wood was the most economical bowler for them just leaking 32 runs in his 4-over spell. He sure has good capabilities in taking wickets but he can also stem the flow of runs.
S. Curran (Punjab)
The most expensive player in the history of the tournament, S. Curran at least has been showing good signs of what a talented player he is. In all fairness, Punjab’s bowling department has taken a hit, with both A. Singh and K. Rabada failing to hit the standards they are known for. However, Curran on the other hand, has been influential. He may be lagging behind in terms of taking wickets but has been the most consistent pace bowler from the Punjab camp.
N. Pooran (Lucknow)
The West Indian attacking batter was at his peak in the game against Bangalore. In a chase that looked out of reach, he single-handedly shifted the momentum back into Lucknow’s favour with his blistering smashing of the ball across the ground. In just 19 deliveries he faced, he notched up 62 runs which included 7 maximums. With 141 runs scored so far in 4 games surely the best of Poorna is yet to come and another cracker can be expected against Punjab.
