Match Preview

Dindigul Dragons team has suffered a big setback with losses in back to back matches after winning 6 matches in a row. Dindigul Dragons need to regroup and play well to win this match after their twin losses. All the top-4 batsmen crossed the 20-run mark but failed to make it count in the Qualifier 1. N Jaagadeesan played an attacking knock of 37 runs off 24 balls opening the batting. Skipper Ravi Ashwin and Hari Nishanth were not able to force the pace in their batting as they struggled to time the ball.

Dragons bowling unit had a rare off-day giving away 169 runs. Hari Nishanth and B Praneesh took 2 wickets each while skipper R Ashwin and M Silambarasan took a wicket each. All the bowlers except Hari Nishanth gave runs at an economy of over 8 RPO. R Rohit and M Mohammed went wicket-less in the powerplay and were unable to break the opening partnership soon. 

Madurai Panthers defeated VB Kanchi Veerans and qualified for the Qualifier 2 in their title defense. They have won five matches on a trot now and are peaking at the right moment. Arun Karthik scored a brilliant half-century to start the chase and was unlucky to be dismissed run-out. Skipper Shijit Chandran played a vital anchor role in his partnership with Arun Karthik. Jagadeesan Koushik and Abhishek Tanwar played vital quickfire cameos to take their home in a nervous run chase. They chased down the total in the last ball of the match with 5 wickets remaining.

Their bowling unit started the match in superb fashion taking quick wickets and VB Kanchi Veerans were reeling at 60/5 at the end of the 11-over mark. R Selvakumaran and R Mithun bowled very economical spells giving away runs at less than 6 RPO. Abhishek Tanwar and Rahil Shah took 2 wickets each in the eliminator match.

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Temperature: 28.4℃ Wind Speed: 12.6 k/h From: WNW Clouds: 71% Rainfall: 5.3 mm.

Dindigul pitch is a traditionally good batting surface where we can expect runs over 160 consistently. But, owing to the used nature of the pitch, it will be tough to bat on this pitch.  The weather looks dark and cloudy with almost 50 % chances of rain as per the forecast. 

Toss: WIN the toss, BAT First

Generally, teams will look to bat first and put a good score on board in the big matches and the slower nature of pitch will further favor the team batting first.

Winning Prediction

Dindigul Dragons team may be low on form and momentum when compared to Madurai Panthers on the recent record, but they would take the confidence of their unbeatable run in the league phase. We expect Dindigul Dragons to win and face CSG in the finale of the 2019 season.
