Will many new faces affect TuTi’s team dynamics?
Both teams who had contrasting results in the last game are set to face off as the action now shifts back to NPR College Ground, Dindigul. Lyca Kovai Kings enjoyed an 8 wicket win over VB Kanchi Veerans meanwhile TuTi Patriots suffered a 9 wicket loss against Madurai Panthers.
TuTi Patriots’ bowling was toothless in the last game except Ganesh Moorthi and they will look to tweak their attack a bit. Lyca Kovai Kings look like they are the potential side to win this tournament even after leaving the likes of Ashwin V on the bench.
Dindigul has usually been a high scoring ground in the past and if Lyca Kovai Kings are batting first we can expect scores above 180.
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.
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.
Another player who played in the middle order in the last season has been promoted to open the batting in this season and has started off well with a 41-ball 55. He scored 99 runs in 3 innings in the last edition of TNPL.
