Can Chepauk Super Gillies break their losing streak?
Tirunelveli is all set to host its second match of this season where Ruby Trichy Warriors and Chepauk Super Gillies will fight it out to get their first win. Chepauk Super Gillies have lost 7 out of their 8 games after winning the title in 2017 and desperately want to win this game to put an end to the losing streak.
Chepauk Super Gillies have one of the best bowling attacks in tournament and it was evident in their last outing against Dindigul Dragons. They might alter some batting points to prevent another collapse. Ruby Trichy Warriors missed some key players in the previous game and if some of them are fit and available, we can expect some changes.
The curators at Indian Cements Company Ground,Tirunelveli provided a belter of a surface yesterday where both teams scored a lot of runs. But batting not being the best facet for both the teams playing today, we can expect a decrease in total when compared to the previous match.
He is a vital cog in the batting lineup of Ruby Trichy Warriors with some prolific names missing out of action. He was among the top run-getters for the side in the previous few seasons. His magnificent knock in the previous game almost helped RTW to get over the line but they eventually lost the game in a tense super over game against Karaikudi Kaalai.
CSG’s new skipper Kaushik Gandhi is the third leading run scorer in the tournament with 902 runs. Having suffered a rare failure in his last outing, he would be eager to get some runs for his new franchise.
The leading wicket taker for CSG in the last edition of TNPL has to play a crucial role if his side has any chance of winning the game. He has been prolific with the ball as well as with the bat in TNPL and his recent game time with Kings XI Punjab in IPL (10 matches) should give him great confidence.
