In yet another enticing Indian Playerzpot League 2023 contest we will see the Punjab team locking horns against the wounded Banglore side. This will be the first fixture of rare doubleheader games in midweek, the match will be played at the PCA Stadium in Punjab. The action will kickstart at 3:30 PM, IST.

Punjab has returned back to winning way after a poor run of performances that see them hold the No.5 spot in league table standings. Whereas the Bangalore team will be licking their fresh wounds after a derby loss against Chennai in their own backyard. The onus is on Bangalore to bounce back but Punjab playing in home condition will certainly be a tough nut to crack.

Players to watch out for

S. Curran (Punjab)

Owning up to his reputation as the league’s most expensive player he has now started to make a real impact with Punjab. The spell against Lucknow was proof of that, he took out the big guns from the Lucknow team who were looking out to finish strong. In a season, where A. Singh and K. Rabad are yet to hit their peak and in such a situation having Curran is indeed a luxury that Punjab will be looking to take full advantage of.

S. Dhawan (Punjab)

The captain of the Punjab team is leading by example, the top scorer for his team so far this season with 233 runs he is in contention to win the Orange Cap. The explosive Indian opener has never been shy about making his intentions clear and he is off the blocks quickly. Though he misfired in the win against Lucknow he is known to be a prolific run-getter throughout the history of the Indian Playerzpot League.

F. Du Plessis (Bangalore)

Known for the carnage he often brings to the game he was in his element in a challenging chase against Chennai. The captain of Bangalore led the charge alongside G. Maxwell and scored a brilliant 62 off 32 deliveries. Although this was in a lost cause, he is now top in the Orange Cap race with 259 runs in just 5 games played so far. It is paramount for Bangalore that Du Plessis keeps hitting heavy if they are to achieve success this time around.

G. Maxwell (Bangalore)

If there is one batter you would not want to bowl when he is in his prime it has to be G. Maxwell from Bangalore. The Australian all-rounder put on a firework show in the game against Chennai. He had no remorse and hit all the Chennai bowlers left, right, and center across the park. 76 of 36 just flew by but all was in vain as Bangalore could not close out the game. However, it is a big positive for Bangalore to have Maxwell gaining confidence and hitting the shots he is known for.
