Jharkhand: Team is progressing slowly, hope from Nadeem

After reaching the semi-finals in 2016-17, the Jharkhand team is progressing slowly. In the first match, on the basis of 10 wickets of Shahbaz Nadeem, the team defeated Delhi in a close match. In the very next match, the batsmen were disappointed and lost to Chhattisgarh. Tamil Nadu was almost knocked out of the match in the final league match, but the lower order led by Kumar Kushagra took the team to a two-wicket victory. Jharkhand had to face group winners Nagaland in the pre-quarter-finals for a place in the quarter-finals. This match was a draw.

Punjab: Batting order strong, Anmol won many matches


Punjab team has many match winners. Abhishek Sharma, who scored more than 400 runs for SRH by performing well in the recently held IPL, and Mandeep Singh, who has performed well for his Ranji team for the last several years, are part of this team. Apart from them, Anmol Preet Singh, who played for Mumbai Indians the last year, is also a match-winner.

Uttar Pradesh: Have a decent bowling attack

Rinku Singh, who has performed tremendously for his IPL team, is a part of this team. The way he performed his game this year, he definitely looks like an international-level player.
