The inaugural season of Haryana Premier League T20 Tournament, kick started on Saturday evening with opening ceremony and the opening match of the season. On Sunday, the tournament hosts two matches, in the second match of the day, Rohtek Blasters battles with Gurugram Gladiators, with the help of floodlights. The 3rd match of the season, Rohtek Blasters vs Gurugram Gladiators is scheduled to start at 5 PM IST on Sunday, 5th February.
Rohtek Blasters is one among six franchises who representing in this inaugural season of Haryana Premier League. The team has plenty of unfamiliar faces to the world cricket. It seems none of the players from Rohtek Blasters has represented for Team India or for any IPL franchises before. Shivang Walia is expected to do wicket-keeper’s job in the series for Blasters. The team looks like that it has well mixed of batsmen, bowlers and All rounders in the side. As maximum players are from club cricket, no one knows which XI would take the field on Sunday. It makes very interesting and no wonder if any player comes with big performances in the tournament.
Gurugram Gladiators has some of IPL players in their side. Karanveer Singh, Bipul Sharma and Sandeep Sharma are in the squad of Gladiators. Fast bowler Sandeep Sharma has represented Team India for 2 T20Is in the year 2015 vs Zimbabwe. He also playing for Kings XI Punjab in IPL seasons. He is a player of Gladiators for sure as he has enough T20 experiences with featured in IPL and also for Team India. The 29-years old Leg Spinner, Karanveer Singh represented Kings XI Punjab in IPL seasons. Bipul Sharma is the other player who played in IPL and represented Kings XI Punjab and also for Sunrisers Hyderabad. As he is playing in Inter-State T20 tournament right now, chances are less for him to feature in the first match Gladiators on Sunday.
