In the 23rd match of the Uttar Pradesh T20 2023, Gorakhpur Lions will be playing against Meerut Mavericks at the Green Park in Kanpur. The Lions are currently on a losing spree in the UP T20, putting them firmly in sixth and last place in the competition. Meanwhile, the Mavericks have been quite consistent in the tournament, winning a few close matches to stay in touch with the top teams on the points table.
Gorakhpur Lions welcomed the IPL sensation Dhruv Jurel to the fold, who played a fantastic innings of 85 in just 49 balls against Noida Super Kings in their previous match, to set up a score in excess of 180 on the board. But the bowlers of the Lions weren’t able to defend the competitive total, losing out on the final ball of the contest in a tough manner.
On the other hand, in their rain-curtailed match in the UP T20 against Kanpur Superstars, the batting lineup of Meerut Mavericks were in their game, posting a competitive total, thanks to Rituraj Sharma and Rinku Singh, after being put into bat first. Their bowlers managed to defend the short target of 78 in six overs on the DLS method, with a major assist from Yash Garg, who picked up three crucial wickets in his two overs.
