idtt vs sms Match Prediction & Analysis

TNPL has crossed many barriers and is suffering from the vagaries of the monsoon rain currently. Tirupur Tamizhans and Salem Spartans had a similar result in their first outing with rain playing a spoilsport in their respective games. Both teams were in a spot of bother when the rain interrupted and who have been slightly happier to stall the game in that situation especially Salem Spartans. Both teams are now aware of the conditions on offer and will look to make slight changes to their strategies in this match.

Teams Preview

IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans Preview

Tirupur batting unit was steam rolled in the last game as they were struggling at 64/7 in 16.2 overs before rain came to their rescue. All top-7 batsmen were dismissed for single digit with three player dismissed for ducks. Dinesh S, Siddharth, Maan Bafna, and Rajkumar must take responsibility with the bat.

Their pace bowling attack has the experienced players with the likes of M Mohammed, K Gowtham, R Rajkumar, and Aswin Crist.  Mohan Prasath, Maan Bafna, and Aravind S will share the spin bowling responsibilities. They have good mix of spin and pace bowlers in their playing XI to give variety of options.

Top players to bet on:

Dinesh S – Dinesh S is an attacking opening batsmen who can set the tempo of the match. He scored 218 runs at a good strike rate last season to lead his batting efforts.  

M Mohammed – Mohammed is a seasoned campaigner with vast experience playing in the state team. He will look to inspire his team from the front with the ball in this season.

IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans Predicted Playing XI:

S Dinesh, S Aravind, S Siddharth, Maan Bafna, P Francis Rokins, Tushar Raheja (wk), R Rajkumar, M Mohammed (c), Aswin Crist, S Mohan Prasath, K Gowtham Thamarai Kannan

Salem Spartans Preview

Daryl Ferrario will lead the team in his debut season and he will have the experienced players like Abhishek, Akshay Srinivasan, Vijay Shankar, and Gopinath for company in batting department. Umashankar Sushil is expected to keep wickets and score some crucial runs in the lower order alongside Praneesh.

Ganesh Moorthi started the match on good note with early wicket and finished with figures of 4-0-29-1. G Periyasamy and Vijay Shankar chipped in with 2 & 1 wicket respectively in the match. Praneesh and Murugan Ashwin were taken for runs at over 11 RPO last game.

Top players to bet on:

Gopinath – Gopinath has played the last 3 seasons and scored 250+ runs consistently across all seasons. He will look to continue his consistency with the bat in this season too.   

Vijay Shankar – Vijay Shankar has represented Indian team and he will be an exciting player with both bat and ball. We expect him to make a big contribution in both departments in this season.   

Salem Spartans Predicted Playing XI:

Akshay Srinivasan, Gopinath, S Abishiek, Umashankar Sushil (wk), B Praanesh, Daryl Ferrario (c), Vijay Shankar, Ravi Karthikeyan, M Ganesh Moorthi, G Periyaswamy, Murugan Ashwin

Weather Conditions

Chennai is expected to have a better weather with just 30-40% chances of rain on the match day. We expect it to make a short appearance to bring DLS equation into consideration.

Venue Details

MA Chidambaram stadium has been aiding the pacers with seam movement due to overcast conditions and breeze across the oceans for the last few matches. Batsmen will need to apply themselves and see off the new ball to score freely. We expect the runs to be around 150-160 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option when DLS equation and rain threat comes into picture in the T20 matches. Both captains will look to bowl first in this match.    

IDTT vs SMS Winning Prediction

Salem Spartans have better experienced players in form of Vijay Shankar, Murugan Ashwin, Periyasamy, and Gopinath in their squad. Tirupur`s inexperience with the bat was on full display last night and we expect Salem Spartans quality pace bowling unit to take advantage of their fragile batting order.  And rain interruptions might tilt the momentum of the match or abandon the match with monsoons in Chennai. We expect Salem Spartans to win this match. 

SALEM SPARTANS will win the match
