Pondicherry T10 League 2023
The Avengers is one of the 8 teams who play in the newly launched T10 series in India, the Pondicherry T10. The league was formerly played as a T20 tournament, but its format was changed to an even shorter one in 2022. This league is sponsored by Byju's which is a famous ed-tech platform and for this, it is known as BYJU'S Pondicherry T10. All the matches of the T10 series were played in the Siachen CAP Ground in Pondicherry. The team is strategically created and the players are carefully chosen from the local areas of the province.
It is a recently formed team that made its first appearance in the Pondicherry T10 in the year 2022. R Pravin, Mohan Doss R, K Aravind, Akash Anand Kargave, N Thennavan, J Karthikeyan, Ravi Teja, Vikneshwaran Marimuthu, Pooviarasan Manogaran, Sanjay Kansal R, Lawrence Jawaharraj, N Venkateswaran, Bharat Bhushan Sharma, Kashyap Prudvi, Malladi Subrahmanyam Sarma, E Vignesh, Muhammed Safwan-Bin-Zubair, and finally Gowdhaman P formed the 2022 squad for the T10 tournament.
Apart from the T10 format the team has also been a part of the T20 format of the same league. Though they could not perform up to the mark in the T10 they aced the T20 format. They finished in the 6ty position on the points table, which surely could not meet the expectations of the owners and the fans. Their concept of T10 is still new in India and it will grow in the coming years as it gains more limelight.
The team owners and support staff have been one of the main reasons behind the players of the team in their continuous improvement in the game whether it is T10 or T20 format. They missed the wins by close margins in 2022 but the owners did an impressive job in selecting the players. The precise information about the team owners could not be traced anywhere on the Internet. Any further information will be uploaded here regarding their ownership details.
Avengers brand value
The brand value of the Avengers is not available on the web as of now. The team is packed with talents and surprises, they just need to disclose it to the world. Owing to their performance in the following matches of the same tournament and also in other leagues, their brand value is predicted to rise remarkably in the next few years. Any further information about brand value will be updated here.
The season got to see very minimal skills from the players and they failed to make an impact on the tournament. They have a long way to go and a lot of potential to unfold, considering the talents that they have in the team. They will hope for a radical change in their performance in the upcoming seasons. The following table shows the summary of the performances of the Avengers as a team from their debut T10 season, the 2022 season of BYJU'S Pondicherry T10.
BYJU'S Pondicherry T10 performance
The first T10 match the Avengers played was the second match of BYJU'S Pondicherry T10. They kicked off their T10 journey with a defeat against the Patriots by 4 wickets. Their next game was against the Kings, which did not give desired results as the Avengers accepted defeat by 9 wickets. The third match was also a defeat by 15 runs against the Smashers. The team somehow could not find the form required in a T10 game, the losses shattered their beliefs and urged them to find a victory.
They finally registered their first win in the tournament against the Royals by 13 runs. This win embarked the beginning of their dominating performance in the next few matches before losing their form again. They registered their second win in a row against the Eagles by 7 wickets. Then they were all set to face the Warriors in the twenty-first match of the season. This time they could not outperform the opponent and ended up being defeated by 6 wickets. They again came back to the winning side with a win against the Titans by 26 runs. They won back-to-back matches at this stage.
Their next win was by a big margin of 48 runs against the Royals. They put up a show-stopping performance in the entire match and dominated the game both with the bat and the ball. The next encounter was a close loss against the Warriors as they failed to defend 90 runs. They were, fortunately, able to declare their way back to the winning side against the Titans with a win by 67 runs. The following match was a truly nail-biting finish as they marked a close loss against the Patriots by the smallest margin of 1 run. Though they failed to win, they proved their class and immense skill. The next match was against the Royals but the results were the exact repetition of the previous match. This time as well they missed the win by 1 run. After two consecutive losses, they could get to their next win against the Eagles by 16 runs.
The last match the Avengers played in the season was against the Smashers and it was again a splash of disappointment as they were defeated by 7 wickets. The season did not go as planned as the other teams were slightly better than them. This resulted in the team standing in the 6th position on the points table at the end of the group stage with 12 points from 14 matches which comprised 6 wins and 8 losses. Thus they could not advance to the finals, thus ending their 2022 journey right here. Not one of their best seasons, but they definitely could collect a great understanding of the format and will prove it in the next seasons.

The season was overall a very average one for the Avengers based on their performances. Though they lost some close encounters and also showed some incredible skills, they still were unable to shoulder the responsibility of the team as a whole. But they are sure to make a considerable comeback in the coming seasons.
