Market Report – Indian Premier League – Week 5, May 8, 2023

IPL 2023 week 5

The league phase of the IPL 2023 season is nearing the conclusion. 4 teams have played 11 games each, while the other 6 have featured in 10 matches apiece. However, it’s still extremely hard to predict which 4 sides will make it to the playoffs. Gujarat is at the top with 16 points, while Chennai and Lucknow follow with 13 and 11 points, respectively. Rajasthan, Bangalore, Mumbai, and Punjab tie on points with 10 points each. Kolkata, Hyderabad, and Delhi are at 8 points. So, none of the 10 teams is eliminated, and no one has qualified.

Let’s rewind the previous week’s happenings in the IPL and also see the changes in Sportiqo’s market.

Notable Performances


Let’s take a look at the top 5 performances of week 5:


  • Shubman Gill 94*(51) vs. Lucknow


Gill smashed 2 fours and 7 sixes in this marathon knock to grab 66 Sportiqo points. He powered Gujarat to 227 for 2, and they got an easy win by 56 runs. 



Butler plundered 10 fours and 4 sixes in this outing. Rajasthan posted a massive total of 214 runs on the board. But they lost on the final ball of the match. This performance gave him 56 points.



This magical 4-over spell gave Shami 55.5 points. His spell restricted Delhi to just 130, but Gujarat couldn’t chase this total.



Rashid bagged 45.8 points in the match after bowling this superb spell. Rajasthan were bowled out for just 118, and Gujarat cruised to a 9-wicket win.



This was certainly the most resilient batting performance of the week. Faf hit just one four and a single six in this knock. His strike rate in this innings was just 110, and he picked only 3 Sportiqo points. However, he was the top scorer of the match as he took his team to 126 for 9. In response, Lucknow were bowled out for 108, and Faf du Plessis was given the Player of the Match award.


Looking Ahead


9 more IPL games will be played this week. Shivam Dube and Yashasvi Jaiswal could be among the top batters this week. Faf du Plessis and Devon Conway may also continue their good form. Talking about bowlers, Yuzvendra Chahal and Rashid Khan can get their stocks skyrocket.
