We are into the most crucial phase in the league stage in Tamil Nadu Premier League, 2021. Last few games remain, and the side are scrambling for a berth in the playoffs. This game between the IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans and Dindigul Dragons would be a very important one for both the sides as they come here suffering losses. IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans lost to Madurai Panthers in the last game while the Dindigul Dragons went down against the Nellai Royal Kings.
The IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans have won just two games so far and currently sit at the 7th place in the points table. They need to win this game by a big margin to improve their run rate and keep their chances open for a place in the next round. Dindigul Dragons who had dominated in the first leg come here with two losses and given current form of the two sides this game is expected to be an exciting one.
M Mohammed’s side would be under pressure going into their third game of the season. Their first game was washed out and the side suffered a 16-run loss in the last game against the Salem Spartans. This is a must-win game for the team to improve its position on the points table and Mohammed would want his players to show their character here.
S Dinesh and N Mohammed Ashik looked in poor form in the last game and the side would need a solid start from them here. In the middle order Maan Bafna, S Aravind and P Francis Rokins will have to anchor the innings. Rokins looked in good form in the last game and shall have to do the big hitting towards the end of the game with Tushar Raheja and M Mohammed.
They would expect early wickets in the game from R Rajkumar and Thamarai Kannan as they will be up against a strong batting line-up. Aswin Crist looked good in the last game, but the rest of the attack was ordinary and hence the side would like to see tight spells in the game from Mohan Prasath, Crist and Maan Bafna.

Consecutive losses has hurt the campaign for Hari Nishanth’s side. They were below their standards in the last game against the Nellai Royal Kings losing it by 5 wickets. Only 1 point separates them from the next four teams and hence they must win this one to book a berth in the next round.
Hari Nishanth and MS Sanjay went out cheaply in the last game and they need to do well here and put runs on the board. The middle order is looking in good form with Mani Bharathi, Rajhamany Srinivasan and R Vivek scoring runs. The side would also like to see runs from RS Mokit Hariharan and S Swaminathan in the finishers’ role.
They bowled poorly in the last game and early wickets would be expected from M Silambarasan and Rangaraj Suthesh. S Swaminathan and Lakshminarayanan Vignesh will have to check the flow of runs in the middle overs for the side. Tight bowling would also be expected from MS Sanjay and Gurjapneet Singh.

The skies over Chennai would be clear on August 07 and the conditions are expected to be hot and humid during the game. The track has played slow in most of the games in this tournament, and this doesn’t allow batsmen to free their arms easily. A score of 160 runs on this surface would be a good fighting total.
MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai balances it out between the bat and the ball in T20 cricket. Batsmen have to spend their time at the crease to score runs here. Fast bowlers who hit the deck hard have done well on this surface. Spinners enjoy the slowness on the track as this allows them to experiment with their variations.
We have seen more teams win the game chasing scores in Chennai. It is a slow wicket and setting up a score has always been a challenge for the side batting first. The sides chasing can pace their innings with a target score in mind. Hence, the side that wins the toss is likely to bowl first here.
IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans would be under pressure going into this contes. They come here after poor efforts with the bat and the ball in the last game. A loss would end their journey in the tournament. Dindigul Dragons on the other hand are in a better state for now and have their batsmen in good form. It will be a close game, but the Dragons would have slight edge going into this contest.
