Players to watch out for
#1 Y Jaiswal (Rajasthan): Y Jaiswal has been spectacular in the ongoing edition of the Indian Playerzpot League. The 21-year-old continued his brilliant run of form by notching up his maiden century in the tournament against Mumbai, scoring 124 runs off 62 balls at a strike rate of 200. Jaiswal single-handedly led Rajasthan’s batting line-up and helped the side to put up a solid total of 212/7 on the board. However, his effort went in vain after Rajasthan lost to Mumbai by six wickets. Jaiswal is currently the second-leading run-getter of the season, amassing 428 runs, including a century and 3 fifties, at an average of 47.56 and a strike rate of 159.70 in nine matches so far. Y Jaiswal is expected to carry on his brilliant form in the upcoming match against Gujarat. Gujarat’s bowling line-up will have a task cut out to stop Jaiswal from scoring runs.
#2 M Shami (Gujarat): M Shami has been impeccable with the ball this season. In the previous match against Delhi, Shami bamboozled the opposition team’s batting line-up and scalped four wickets while leaking just 11 runs at an economy rate of 2.80 in four overs. The 32-year-old is currently the leading wicket-taker of the season, scalping 17 wickets, including a four-wicket haul, at an average of 14.52 and an economy rate of 7.05 in nine matches so far. Shami has performed well in most of the matches so far and has taken wickets in powerplay as well as middle overs. M Shami could be a potent threat for Rajasthan’s top-order of the batting line-up in the upcoming game.
#3 R Ashwin (Rajasthan): R Ashwin is proving the critics by delivering his best with the ball in the shortest format. He is often considered a Test bowler but he has been an impactful player in the ongoing season of the Indian Playerzpot League. In the previous match, the 36-year-old scalped two wickets while conceding 27 runs at an economy rate of 6.75 in four overs. He was the most economical bowler in the match. This season, R Ashwin has scalped 13 wickets at an average of 20 and an economy rate of 7.22 in nine matches. He has bettered his tally of wickets from the previous season. Ashwin always makes things tough for the opposition’s batting line-up with his spin bowling and ability to bowl in different variations. Moreover, Ashwin is a handy batsman who can hit a few blows in the lower order. Ashwin will look to make an impact in the upcoming match against Gujarat.
#4 M Sharma (Gujarat): M Sharma has turned out to be a surprise package in Gujarat’s pace bowling unit. The 31-year-old has been an impactful bowler and lend a hand in some important wins for the team. In the previous match against Delhi, M Sharma scalped two wickets while conceding 33 runs at an economy rate of 8.20 in four overs. He also completed taking 100 wickets in the tournament, making him the 13th Indian bowler to do so. This season, M Sharma has scalped 8 wickets at an average of 15.62 and an economy rate of 6.94 in six matches. He has been an impact player and helped the side to restrict the flow of runs in the death overs. His inclusion seems to have strengthened Gujarat’s bowling line-up. M Sharma will be hoping to make an impact in the upcoming match against Rajasthan.
