Weather Conditions

Chennai has a wet weather for the last week with rain making it`s appearances especially during the evening.   The weather does not look good on match day with 60-70% chances of rain expected.

Venue Details

MA Chidambaram stadium has been traditionally a spinner friendly track where runs are hard to come by.  A hint of grass is available on the pitch and is aiding the seam bowlers to move the ball considerably in the recent matches. We expect the runs to be around 150-160 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

The early moisture and hint of grass will make the ball swing and seam around early in the match. Both captains will look to take advantage of it by bowling first.       

DDD vs MP Winning Prediction

Dindigul Dragons have a slightly new look team with a couple of their core players moving out of the franchise but they have a good mix of youth and experience in their team. They lack quality all-rounders but they have a better bowling attack when compared with other teams in the league.  Madurai panthers have experienced players in the batting line-up with a couple of good all-rounders in middle order. They lack experienced spin bowler in these conditions might come to haunt them. We expect Dindigul Dragons to win this match.  

Dindigul Dragons will win the match
