|Name||Matches||Wickets/ Runs||Bowl. avg/ Bat. avg|
|Sandipan Das||5||5/ 42||12/14|
The top-order batsman has produced fine performance in this season and is one of the brightest talent to come out of T20 Club cricket. He has the ability to provide a fine start and can be steady with his performances. In the last league match, he failed to perform in a rain-effected match, but will be an important pick for this fixture.
The Durgapur Dazzlers need few wins under their belt to be going into the semi-finals of the tournament. They are lacking intent in their batting performances, and need a firepower from captain Abhishek Raman himself. The team’s combinations can be changed for this fixture according to the number of overs the match is being played.
