Cricket Match Preview:
The skipper of VB Kanchi Veerans, Baba Aparajith, has done it. After finishing the last three years on sixth, fifth and seventh spots, they have finally reached their first playoff spot in 2019. A lot of credit has to go to the skipper, Aparajith, who led from the front this year. Siechem Madurai Panthers, on the other hand, continued their good run of form after winning the trophy last year and made it to the second consecutive playoffs.
By a difference of 0.297 run-rate, VB Kanchi Veerans got through to the playoff spot instead of Lyca Kovai Kings. Kovai Kings had four wins out of seven cricket games, but it was only due to the higher run-rate that Kanchi Veerans managed to beat Kovai Kings. But to do so, they had to win their final cricket game against Ruby Trichy Warriors. Kanchi Veerans needed 122 runs to win the game and did so quite easily by seven wickets.
Meanwhile, Siechem Madurai Panthers had a very close game of cricket in their last cricket game against IDream Karaikudi Kaalai. Karaikudi Kaalai were restricted for just 93 runs after the first innings. Madurai Panthers, on the other hand, were stretched very hard and had to huff and puff their way to their target. In the end, Madurai Panthers won the game of cricket by two wickets.
In the last four cricket games between the two sides, Madurai Panthers have been defeated by Kanchi Veerans in three of the last four cricket games. In the last game of cricket played earlier in the tournament, Kanchi Veerans defeated Madurai Panthers by seven wickets. They would like to repeat that feat once again on Sunday.
