Make or break game for both sides today
With the first half of the season completed (16 matches) and all teams having played four matches each, it looks like a tough path ahead for both Karaikudi Kaalai and TuTi Patriots but certainly not an impossible one. Both these teams have won 1 match and lost 3 matches so far and another loss today will mean that the losing team is all but out of the tournament.
V Laksman who came back into the playing XI in the last game proved to be very expensive and Yo Mahesh might replace him. There are a couple of tough calls expected to be taken for their misfiring batsmen too. One of the top wicket-takers of the tournament A Davidson has been leaking runs in the last two games and he might be given a break too.
The wicket in Dindigul has been a brilliant one to watch for neutral spectators and the last couple of games here saw the momentum shifting between two sides consistently.
His return to the side will certainly give an immense boost to the team which is low on confidence. His ability to change the game from any situation makes him a must-have player in the Dream11 cricket team for today’s match.
The Tuti Patriots opener has given his team some fabulous start with the bat. He is the leading run-scorer for the team and has an impressive strike rate of 156.92 in the season which makes him one of the most preferred players in the Dream11 cricket team for today’s match.
The 25-year-old all-rounder made his debut in the last game and has made a mark with his impressive leg-spin. He was the most economical bowler for TuTi Patriots and has picked up a couple of wickets too.
