Cricket Match Preview:
Ravichandran Ashwin has been at his funkiest best and he has produced results being so. That has been the biggest story of this year’s Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL). Not only has he batted well, but he has also taken wickets as well and all that being as entertaining as he can be. So far, TNPL is a rich tournament because of his presence.
TUTI Patriots have to deal with a maverick and they know it. Patriots were led by V Subramania Siva in the opening game of cricket due to the absence of Washington Sundar, who was taking part in India A tour of West Indies. Now, since that cricket series is over, he should be available to captain the TUTI Patriots. Patriots dearly missed the all-round abilities of Sundar as they gave a meek performance with the bat first and then with the ball.
Dindigul Dragons won the first game of cricket by ten runs and among 22 men, there was only one man, R Ashwin, who batted comfortably and scored 37 off just 19 deliveries and pushed Dragons to a fighting total. In the second cricket game, it was Ashwin’s bowling that stole the limelight. His dismissal off a completely bizarre bowling action was as funny and as effective as it can be.
It should be a good cricket game, especially if Washington Sundar becomes a part of TUTI Patriots as that would mean he will be taking on his idol, Ashwin, from whom he has modelled his cricket undoubtedly. He is an off-spinner like Ashwin and is a proper lower-order batsman again like Ashwin. It was from franchise cricket like the IPL, where Ashwin emerged and played for India. Sundar, on the other hand, emerged from TNPL and has played for India as well. India would be hoping for many Sundars to emerge from the tournament.

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:
Ravichandran Ashwin will be our man-to-watch-out-for yet again. He has been very funky with his bowling, batting and captaincy. All these things, when bound with the right results, look irresistible. Ashwin will be looking to continue more of the same and our prediction is of another good game of cricket for him.

The last T20 cricket game played here was between Chepauk Super Gillies and Ruby Trichy Warriors recently. It was a game which Super Gillies won easily by 41 runs having to defend 149 runs. Our prediction is of the score of around 160 in this game of cricket. Conditions are expected to be dry.
