Dindigul Dragons Team Preview
Dindigul Dragons team faced two back-to-back defeats when lost to Chepauk Super Gillie and Nellai Royal Kings. Dindigul Dragons got back to winning ways when they beat IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans in their last game. They asked to chase a target of 146 runs while batting second and they achieved it by losing just 4 wickets.
Hari Nishanth played the innings of a captain. He scored 33 runs in his 25 ball innings that included 3 sixes and a four. But the man of the show was R Vivek who scored at any strike rate of over 200 and made 57 not out.
Dindigul Dragons have a great depth in their batting lineup that has batsmen like R Vivek, Mani Bharathi, RS Mokit Hariharan, and captain Hari Nishanth himself.
A good bowling display will be need from Dindigul Dragons bowlers Rangaraj Suthesh, Vignesh, and Gurjapneet Singh who are among the wickets throughout the TNPL 2021.
Lyca Kovai Kings Team Preview
Lyca Kovai Kings were very disappointed with their performances in their back-to-back losses, but the team delivered very well in the must-win game against Nellai Royal Kings.
Lyca Kovai Kings team was able to post a total of 169 after the good start by openers Ganga Sridhar Raju and Suresh Kumar. These two made scores of 30 and 36 respectively thanks to which the Lyca Kovai Kings were 41 in 5 overs.
Captain Shahrukh Khan stole all highlights with his superfast innings of 64 in just 29 balls that consisted of 5 fours and an equal number of sixes as well.
Ganga Sridhar Raju, Suresh Kumar, and Shahrukh Khan will again have the responsibility of giving their team a solid performance with the bat.
Valliappan Yudheeswaran bowled well in the game against Nellai Royal Kings but he was expensive. Other bowlers N Selva Kumaran and S Ajith Ram were also expensive and not able to pick up the wickets at the moment when needed. These bowlers have to do some improvements and need to take wickets early on without giving too many runs.
