There is no rain forecast ahead of this clash. We witnessed the ball coming on to the bat nicely in both the matches yesterday and high scores were posted. We expect nothing different today.
One of the top run scorers in the last edition of TNPL with 256 runs at an average of 32.00, Abhinav Mukund is one of the must have players in your Dream11 team. Consistency is his middle name and has proven that over the years while playing for Tamil Nadu.
RS Mokit Hariharan
One of the revelations of last year’s TNPL, Mokit Hariharan is expected to have a major breakthrough in this season. The young all-rounder has scored 136 runs and has impressed one and all with his unique ambidextrous bowling.
The fourth leading run scorer in TNPL 2018 was in smashing form scoring 325 runs at a strike rate of 140+. He struggled to showcase his talent in the initial years of TNPL while batting in the middle order, but promotion to open the batting for LKK has worked wonders for his career.
