IPL 2023

IPL 2023: Compelling to maintain a winning streak, Punjab Kings have managed to win 2 games out of the 3 matches they have played, leaving them with 4 points and occupying the 6th position among the other league competitors in IPL 2023 so far. Whereas the Gujarat Titans’ score table position is in 4th place with only 4 points and a win probability of 67% in the upcoming match. 

The scheduled stadium for the upcoming IPL 2023 fixture is Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, which is the home ground for the Kings. With a star-studded squad on both teams listed, here are the top 3 anticipated player battles.

Shikhar Dhawan vs Rashid Khan

Shikhar Dhawan, aka “Gabbar,” has had a long, successful, and stunning IPL career over the years with numerous teams. Over the years, he has scored around 3000 runs with a smashing strike rate of 126.34. He has been a vital factor in all the teams he has played for throughout the years and garnered the attention of cricket fans as one of the most promising players in the T20 format. 

On the other hand, the masterful right-arm leg break bowler is one of the toughest opponents in the world of cricket. His tactical and visionary bowling style has knocked out many world-class batsmen, and that has led to a great IPL T20 career over the years. The face-off between these two players would be very fascinating as to who would be the one to knock down either of the challenging players in the initial overs of the match only.

David Miller vs Mohammad Shami

David Miller is one of the hardest-hitting batsmen in IPL team history and has proven to be an essential asset to the franchise teams over the years. He has scored over 2000 runs with a powerful strike rate of 138.78. Miller has amazing batting skills with powerful sweep shots against fast-paced bowlers. 

Whereas, Mohammad Shami is one of the many prodigal and world-class right-arm fast bowlers who has been successful over the years in proving his worth in major and important games for both the country and franchise teams. Their head-to-head clash would be worthwhile watching as Miller hits the stadium-bound sixes and Mohammad Shami delivers a challenging skill set of bowling styles. He has been brilliant in the IPL 2023 so far.

Hardik Pandya vs Sam Curran

Hardik Pandya, as we all know, is an all-rounder excelling in right-handed batting, and a fast-medium bowling skillset is obviously a challenging and entertaining opposition to the kings’ squad. Over the years, the all-rounder has been a wonderful asset to the team in crucial matches and has been able to put on a show, delivering awesome performances and smashing the opponents.

On the other hand, Sam Curran, the English youngster, has been one of the most promising all-rounders with both skillful batting and bowling styles. He is known for his aggressive batting and his ability to swing the ball both ways as a bowler. His all-around skills have made him a valuable asset to the IPL teams he has played for so far. Sam Curran was the costliest player in the IPL 2023 auction; he was bought by PBKS for a whopping 18.50 Crores.

The exciting clash between these two would be much entertaining, as fans would love to see the profound all-rounder pitted against the young talent in the game-deciding overs.
