Punjab will take on a resurgent Hyderabad in match 28 of the Indian T20 League 2022 season. The Mayank Agarwal-led side defeated Mumbai by 12 runs in their last game and registered their third win of the season. Meanwhile, Hyderabad have been outstanding since losing their first two games in the tournament. They have registered thumping wins over Chennai, Gujarat, and Kolkata.
We look at a few First Games fantasy cricket Match-Ups from the Indian T20 League 2022 match 28.
S Dhawan vs L Livingstone
Punjab opener Shikhar Dhawan paved the way for a big total against Mumbai with a 50-ball 70. He is just 19 runs away from becoming just the second player to reach 6000 runs in Indian T20 League. Liam Livingstone had an off day as he managed just two runs and didn't pick up a wicket. But the Englishman is likely to bounce back and beat his teammate in this Match-Up.
K Rabada vs T Natarajan
Kagiso Rabada and Thangarasu Natarajan are consistently picking up wickets this season. The Hyderabad pacer has taken at least two wickets each in all five games, while the South African has six wickets from four games. Rabada has the upper hand over Natarajan thanks to his ability to chip in with crucial runs.
