Cricket Match Preview:
It takes a moment of magic, a brilliant spell of bowling or a magnificent inning to turn around the campaigns in any tournament. If VB Kanchi Veerans go the distance in the tournament, Sanjay Yadav’s inning of 95 off just 60 deliveries against Karaikudi Kaalai might be looked as one such impactful knock. Madurai Panthers, on the other hand, are playing after a gap of more than five days. They lost their last cricket game against Dindigul Dragons.
After losing the first cricket game against Kovai Kings, Kanchi Veerans were under a bit of pressure. They showed admirable character to bounce back the way they did against Karaikudi Kaalai. They posted a total of 177 runs on the board after batting first and then defended it in an unbelievable manner by dismissing Kaalai for just 67 runs. That win put them right among the top four teams of the tournament.
Madurai Panthers, on the other hand, began well against TUTI Patriots. They won their first cricket game of the tournament by beating them easily by 9 wickets. However, in their next cricket game against Dindigul Dragons, they could not quite perform to their best level and lost the cricket game quite easily by 30 runs. Panthers are still on the fourth spot on the points table but they would not like to slip further.
It is going to be an exciting game of cricket between these two sides. Head to head, Kanchi Veerans have had the upper hand by beating them in two out of the last three cricket games, but the most recent one was won by Madurai Panthers. Madurai Panthers are one of those few teams who have managed to chase down the target successfully in this tournament and that could mean we are in for a thriller if Kanchi Veerans post a good total on the board again.
Cricket Match Information:
Madurai Panthers will take on VB Kanchi Veerans in their third cricket game of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL). Both teams have played two cricket games each and both have won one and lost one cricket game. As of now, Madurai Panthers are on the fourth position on the points table, whereas Kanchi Veerans are on the third position.
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. However, he was not in the team for the last game. In his absence, KB Arun Karthik led the side. Our prediction is of the similar playing eleven that played the last cricket game.
Here is our prediction of Madurai Panthers’ playing XI:
- Damodaren Rohit
- KB Arun Karthik
- A Sarath Raj
- J Koushik
- R Nilesh Subramanian
- Akash Sumra
- AB Tanwar
- L Kiran Akash
- PS Chandran
- R Mithun
- RS Shah
VB Kanchi Veerans

- Baba Aparajith
- K Vishal Vaidhya
- U Mukilesh

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:
After his fantastic knock of 95, Sanjay Yadav will once again be our man to watch out for in this cricket game. 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 Chepauk Super Gillies and 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.
VB Kanchi Veerans will begin this game of cricket as favourites. They are coming off a huge win over Karaikudi Kaalai in their last cricket game, whereas Madurai Panthers are coming off a break and a loss in the last cricket game. Hence, our prediction is of Kanchi Veerans’ win.
