Players to watch out for

#1 Y Jaiswal (Rajasthan): Y Jaiswal has stamped his authority with an unforgettable season in the Indian Playerzpot League. The 21-year-old is leaving no stone unturned to make his name as well as talent known to the cricketing world. In the previous match against Kolkata, Jaiswal displayed a blistering performance by scoring an unbeaten 98 off 47 balls at an astounding strike rate of 208.51. In this match, he recorded the fastest fifty of the tournament in just 13 balls. Jaiswal is among the strong contenders to win Orange Cap as he is the second leading run-getter of the season, amassing 575 runs, including a century and four fifties, at an average of 52.27 and a strike rate of 167.15 in 12 matches. Jaiswal has been a strong pillar of Rajasthan’s batting line-up this season. Bangalore’s bowling line-up will have a task cut out to stop Y. Jaiswal from unleashing his firepower.

#2 F du Plessis (Bangalore): F du Plessis has been one of the most consistent performers in the ongoing season of the tournament. In the previous match against Mumbai, the 37-year-old scored 65 off 41 balls at a strike rate of 158.54 and helped his side to post a solid total of 199/6 on the board. But, his effort went in vain as Bangalore lost to Mumbai by six wickets. F du Plessis is currently the highest run-getter of the season, amassing 576 runs, including six half-centuries, at an average of 57.60 and a good strike rate of 157.81 in 11 matches so far. His highest individual score of the season came against Punjab (84 off 56 balls). When the top-order failed to get going in the powerplay, F du Plessis stepped up and unleashed his firepower to make use of the field restrictions in the first six over. His ability to pile runs in the powerplay as well as in the middle overs and ability to turn the game around on its head can make him a formidable threat to Rajasthan’s bowling line-up.

#3 Y Chahal (Rajasthan): Y Chahal has been the best bowler for Rajasthan in the ongoing edition of the tournament. In the previous match against Kolkata, the 32-year-old scalped four wickets while conceding 23 runs at an average of 6.20 in four overs. With his four-wicket haul, Chahal overtook D Bravo’s tally of 183 wickets to become the leading wicket-taker in the history of the Indian Playerzpot League. Chahal’s tally stands at 187 wickets from 143 matches so far. Y Chahal is currently the Purple Cap holder of the season by scalping 21 wickets, including three four-wicket hauls, at an average of 16.89 and an economy rate of 7.91 in 12 matches so far. No bowler has taken two four-wicket hauls except Chahal this season. Y Chahal’s ability to bowl in different variations has often left the opposition’s batsmen bamboozled. Chahal will look to pose a threat to Bangalore’s batting line-up.

#4 G Maxwell (Bangalore): G Maxwell has continued to remain one of the batting mainstays for Bangalore in the ongoing season of the Indian Playerzpot League. The 34-year-old was the top-scorer for the team against Mumbai, scoring 68 off 33 balls at a strike rate of 206.06. This season, Maxwell has aggregated 330 runs, including four fifties, at an average of 33 and a strike rate of 186.44 in 11 matches so far. Maxwell’s strike rate is far better than among the leading run-scorers of the season. highest individual score of the season came against Rajasthan, scoring 77 off 44 balls. Maxwell is a hard hitter and does his job to perfection. He has stepped up when the team required more runs on the board or accelerating the innings. Bangalore can rely on him whenever the team is in a crunch situation. Maxwell will look to carry on his good form in the upcoming match against Rajasthan.
