There is no rain forecast during the match time. The wicket last night was a bit on the slow side because of the moisture cover on the pitch but it is expected to get better today.
Leading run scorer of the third edition of TNPL with 472 runs from 10 matches at an average of 78.66 is a must have pick in your Dream11 team. He has been consistent in his entire TNPL career and has also scored 6 half centuries in the last edition of TNPL.
Varun Chakravarthy was the best of the players among IPL scouts in the last edition of TNPL. The most economical bowler of TNPL 2018 season was simply unplayable thanks to his multiple variations delivered with impeccable accuracy.
The second highest wicket taker of TNPL 2018 with 13 wickets in 7 matches is one to watch out for in this season also. His slingy action combined with some accurate Yorkers in death overs makes you compare him with Lasith Malinga.
