A true clash of the heavyweights of the Indian Playerzpot League 2023 will see Mumbai go up against Gujarat in match no. 57 of the converted T20 tournament. The game will be played at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium, this fixture is undoubtedly a high-voltage one as former Mumbai player H. Pandya will be squaring off against his old team.

Mumbai on the other hand has found their lost spark, dominating the previous few games they have now made their way to the 3rd place of the league table standings. Gujarat, however, is still sitting at the top of the three with 16 points, compared to the 12 of Mumbai. With the qualification to the competition’s knockout stages, none of the two will want to drop points now thus making it a cracking affair for the spectators.

Players to watch out for

S. Yadav (Mumbai)

Arguably the best T20 batter in the last couple of years, S. Yadav has now roared back in form in the Indian Playerzpot League. In what was a must-win game at home against Bangalore he was at his phenomenal best hitting the bowlers out of the park. Chasing a target of 200 runs he contributed 83 runs off 35 balls with a strike rate of 237. It is indeed good news for Mumbai that Yadav has now opened his arms, Gujarat will have to move carefully against S. Yadav especially if they are defending the total.

I. Kishan (Mumbai)

The young Indian batter is currently responsible for providing a strong batting start to Mumbai. In a season where the captain R. Sharma is struggling with single-digit scores and early dismissals, it is I. Kishan who has delivered from the front. With 335 runs scores so far in 11 matches, he sure has the potential to burst onto the scene. The 42 runs off 21 balls is exactly the kind of innings his team demands from him and once again all eyes will be on his batting potential when up against Gujarat.

R. Khan (Gujarat)

Gujarat is a fine-tuned machine with a strong balance of best batters and bowlers. R. Khan is surely one of the leading bowlers in the lineup that has good experience and skills. The Afghanistan spinner is tied with his teammate on 19 wickets in the campaign in leading the race for the purple cap. He has also picked up a hat trick this campaign. Mumbai in particular will have to be wary of spinning spells from R. Khan for he can inflict heavy damage on them.

M. Sharma (Gujarat)

He has been a surprise package for most of the teams this season. M. Sharma who was thought to have played his best years is producing a stellar performance for Gujarat. Often used as the impact substitution player he has been used as a death bowling option. He was at his lethal best in the game against Lucknow where he plucked 4 wickets. With 12 wickets in just 8 games, perhaps there is more to M. Sharma than meets the eye.
