It is the second game of the season Tamil Nadu Premier League, 2022 and Dindigul Dragons would be up against last year’s finalist Ruby Trichy Warriors. Dragons did well last year during the group stages but failed to maintain their momentum during the playoffs. They would be looking to start the season with a bang, but it won’t be easy against the Trichy Warriors who also have a strong side.
In the last five games played between two teams, Dindigul Dragons have won four of them and this would add to the side’s confidence heading into this game. The Warriors have several experienced players in their squad, and this would make the game interesting. There would be pressure on both camps to make a perfect start and we should have an interesting game on our hands.
Hari Nishanth’s side was knocked out in the 2nd qualifier last season. They have been a consistent team across the last three seasons making it to the finals twice. The side has a strong batting line-up and a bowling attack that can take on any opponent. Nishanth would like to see his players play to their potential in this game and start the tournament with a win.
Hari Nishanth had done well last year topping the batting charts and he would like to offer a good start here along with Suresh Lokeshwar. Mani Bharathi shall have to play well at No 3 and build partnerships with Rajhamany Srinivasan and RS Mokit Hariharan. R Vivek is a good hitter of the ball, and he would look to make quick runs along with M Silambarasan and S Swaminathan.
Rangaraj Suthesh and M Silambarasan are good bowlers, and the onus would be on them to offer a good start to the side. Lakshminarayanan Vignesh will have to do well in the middle overs of the game and keep the scoring under check along with Nishanth, Swaminathan, and Vivek in this game.

Rahil Shah’s side had done well during the group stages last year where they won five out of the seven games, they played but were outplayed in the final by the Chepauk Super Gillies. It was a heartbreak for the side, but they would like to make a fresh start and do well. They have a strong batting line-up and Shah would like to earn the first points of the season in this game.
Murali Vijay coming into the team adds to their strength and he would like to offer a good start with Amit Sathvik. Nidhish Rajagopal and Adithya Ganesh had done well in the middle order last year and the side would like to see good scores from them. Muhammed Adnan Khan, Antony Dhas, and Saravan Kumar add firepower to this line-up down the order.
Their bowlers have a big challenge on hand as they take on a good batting unit. Saravan Kumar and Sunil Sam shall need to inflict early damages to put the side in a commanding position in the game. Shah is an experienced bowler, and he will need to do well in the middle overs with ME Yazh Arun Mozhi and Antony Dhas during the middle overs of the game.

We are likely to see some clouds over Tirunelveli on June 24. The wicket has always been a good one to bat on as the ball comes onto the bat nicely. Batsmen can play their strokes freely on this surface. The side batting first in the game would need at least 180 runs on the board to feel confident.
Indian Cement Company Ground, Tirunelveli is a batter’s paradise. The small ground and fast outfield allow batsmen to score runs freely. There isn’t much on this track for fast bowlers and they must rely on their variations. The ball grips the surface and spinners have enjoyed bowling on this surface.
In the past, we have seen most sides winning games here by chasing the scores. The wicket is good to bat on and doesn’t change its character throughout the game. It will be the first game of the season for both teams and the one winning the toss is likely to opt for bowling first in this game.
It is the first game of the season for both teams and they will have to stand and deliver. Ruby Trichy Warriors have a strong batting line-up but their weakness with the ball would worry the team. The side needs to bowl well to take on a good batting line-up. Dindigul Dragons have an excellent record against the Warriors and pack punch with the bat and the ball. This would make them favorites in this game.
