Cricket Match Preview:

Dindigul Dragons got off to a winning start in the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2019. On a tough pitch against Chepauk Super Gillies, they set up the target of 116 runs. Then on a fast deteriorating pitch, they defended the total easily by ten runs to get two points on the board. By the time this piece is being written, Madurai had not played their first cricket game. 

Dindigul’s skipper, Ravichandran Ashwin, had a good outing in the first cricket game of the TNPL. He looked fluent on a tough pitch and scored 37 off just 19 balls. He came in and batted at three, which must be encouraging for his team as Ashwin has largely batted in the lower order for India and his franchises. He has taken a lot of confidence from his county stint, where he was amongst runs as well as lots of wickets. 

Madurai’s skipper, Damodaren Rohit, will have to be at his best yet again to inspire his troops. He did a commendable job last year when he led his side to their first ever title. He will have his task cut out against Dindigul, led by a shrewd and experienced skipper. It will also be a great learning experience to learn the craft from a leader of Ashwin’s caliber. 

With minimum of four wins required to qualify for the next round, the teams would like to do the needful as early as possible to avoid the late hustle. These two teams met each other in the final last year where, Madurai came out on top by seven wickets. It was a disappointing loss for Dindigul but it showed them that they are on the right path. They were led by N Jagadeesan last year and they would be hoping that a change in skipper will lead them all the way.

Cricket Match Information:

Dindigul Dragons will take on Madurai Panthers in their second game of the TNPL 2019. Madurai are the defending champions of the competition. Dindigul won the first cricket game of the tournament by ten runs against Chepauk Super Gillies. 

Each team will play seven games of cricket and the top four teams will qualify for the playoffs. The final of the tournament will be played on 15th August. 

Dindigul Dragons

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Dindigul are being led by R Ashwin in the competition. They got off to a winning start in their first cricket game. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game barring an injury. 

Here is our prediction of Dindigul Dragons’ playing XI:

  • C Hari Nishanth 
  • N Jagadeesan
  • NS Chaturved 
  • M Abhinav 
  • R Ashwin
  • R Rohit 
  • R Vivek 
  • Sumant Jain
  • M Silambarasan 
  • J Kaushik
  • M Mohammed

Madurai Panthers

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Madurai Panthers are the defending champions of the tournament this year. They are going to be led by Damodaren Rohit this year as well. Our prediction is of a similar playing eleven that played the final last year. 

Here is our prediction of Madurai Panthers’ playing XI:

  • Damodaren Rohit
  • KB Arun Karthik 
  • X Thalaivan Sargunam 
  • Varun Chakravarthy 
  • Tushar Raheja 
  • PS Chandran 
  • TD Lokesh Raj 
  • R Mithun 
  • R Karthikeyan 
  • SS Karnavar 
  • RS Shah

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

R Ashwin began the TNPL in a grand fashion. He will also be looking to stage a comeback in India’s limited over cricket. With average showing from India’s twin leg spinners in the cricket World Cup, Ashwin has a chance now to get back into the team. With some great performances, our prediction is of a wonderful tournament and cricket game for Ashwin.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last T20 cricket game played here was between Karaikudi Kaalai and TUTI Patriots last year. It was a game which Patriots won by four wickets having to chase 165 runs. Our prediction is of the score of around 170 in this game of cricket. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

Dindigul Dragons will begin this game of cricket as favourites. While they were beaten in the final last year, they have begun well again this year, whereas Madurai Panthers are yet to begin their campaign. Hence, our prediction is of a Dindigul Dragons’ win.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

R Ashwin (DD) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

M Mohammed (DD) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

R Ashwin (DD)
