A virtual knockout for the Kings while the Dragons have a final rehearsal before the playoffs
DIN are sitting comfortably at the top of the table and will be looking to put another good performance to take the momentum forward into the playoffs. LYC are playing a virtual knockout. If they win, they will only need the Warriors to beat the Veerans but if they lose, they’ll have to hope the Veerans lose by a humongous margin. Contestants Outlook DIN are currently looking like a champion team. Put them in any situation and they know how to come on top from it. Their middle is slowly getting some runs which means they are covering every base possible. LYC have been too inconsistent in the tournament. They have not won more than 1 match at a stretch. Their batting and bowling haven’t clicked together and if that happens, they can be really dangerous.
Knowing the DIN skipper, he will not be interested in making too many changes. They should retain the core and have a couple of changes to give some players an opportunity. LYC will probably look to bring back Anirudh Sita Ram for Muhammad.
The pitch has generally been a high scoring one this season and it looks like that trend will continue.
The consistency and the sheer ease with which he scores tons of runs makes him a must-have in any team.
This Kings’ opener had a slow start to the tournament with moderate scores but he now looks to be hitting the ball as well as ever. If he gets going, he can destroy any team.
The all-rounder has been in terrific form and has been picking up wickets and scoring runs in most games.
The left-arm speedster was a bit rusty to start off but has picked up momentum now. He has picked up 6 wickets in the last 4 games at economy of less than 8. He could bowl out any batting line-up on his day.
