Cricket Match Preview:
We are now in the last leg of the group stage of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2019. While Dindigul Dragons and Chepauk Super Gillies seem to be running away from the competition with four and three wins, respectively, the other teams are still looking to find their mojo. With VB Kanchi Veerans and Lyca Kovai Kings relatively well-placed too, the onus is now on teams like Jones TUTI Patriots and IDream Karaikudi Kaalai to perform or to perish.
Karaikudi Kaalai had another tough loss in the tournament, this time against Dindigul Dragons. It was always going to be hard against the table-toppers but with the way Dindigul Dragons decimated Karaikudi Kaalai despite posting a reasonable total on the board, it would have shaken them. Karaikudi Kaalai’s skipper, Srikanth Anirudha, played out of his skin and scored 98 off just 59 deliveries, but the rest of the batsmen failed to support him, and they could only score 158 runs on the board.
TUTI Patriots, on the other hand, suffered a loss against Dindigul Dragons in their last cricket game as well. Just like Karaikudi Kaalai, their batting was not allowed to play freely as well by Dindigul Dragons bowlers, and they lost the game of cricket by 40 runs in pursuit of their target of 174 runs. TUTI Patriots have been led by V Subramania Siva in this tournament so far due to the absence of Washington Sundar, who was taking part in India A tour of West Indies.
In the last three cricket games between the sides, TUTI Patriots have had the upper hand over Karaikudi Kaalai. TUTI Patriots have won the last two games played between the two sides, whereas Karaikudi Kaalai won the first encounter. With both sides needing a win, it is going to be imperative that teammates support their leaders and put up a performance.

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:
Srikanth Anirudha played out of his skin in the last cricket game against Dindigul Dragons. His knock of 98 off just 59 balls was one of the better knocks of the tournament. However, it could not lead his side towards a victory. Our prediction is of another good game of cricket for him.
Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:
The last T20 cricket game played here was between Jones TUTI Patriots and Lyca Kovai Kings recently. It was a game which TUTI Patriots won by just six runs having to defend 156 runs. Our prediction is of the score of around 160 in this game of cricket. Conditions are expected to be dry.
Jones TUTI Patriots will begin this game of cricket as favourites. Their head-to-head record against IDream Karaikudi Kaalai is impressive and they would need that confidence to move ahead in the competition. Hence, our prediction is of TUTI Patriots’ win.
Top Batsman (Prediction):
Srikanth Anirudha (IKK) – 50+ runs
Top Bowler (Prediction):
M Ganesh Moorthi (JTP) – 2 or more wickets
