Match Preview

Both TUTI Patriots and Karaikudi Kaalai are not having a good season and have lost 3 matches out of the four matches played so far. Both the teams’ victory was also not in a convincing fashion. Karaikudi Kaalai prevailed in a super over contest while TUTI patriots ended up victories in a rain-shortened high-scoring encounter by a close margin. They have lost matches by massive margins and have NRR in a higher negative value.

TUTI Patriots batting has been disappointing this season with scores of 124/8, 133/9 & 135/9 in the three matches they lost so far. Their best batting performance came in the 13-over shootout game with a total of 155/5. Akshay Srinivasan is the only batsmen to score 50+ score in their team so far. Their top order has collapsed more often and resulted in low totals in many matches. Subramania Siva, S Senthilnathan, and S Abishek are yet to make a good contribution with the bat. Their bowling unit too did not fare better giving away runs at a high economy rate in all the matches. No frontline bowler has an economy of less than 8 RPO. They have taken just 18 wickets in their four matches. Tamil Kumaran leads their wickets chart with 5 wickets at an economy rate of 9.8 RPO.

Karaikudi Kaalai lost their match against Dindigul Dragons by 10 wickets. Skipper Anirudha Srikanth played his best knock of 98 runs to take his team to a respectable total of 158 runs. No other batsmen have stood up with him to build a good partnership so far. Maan Bafna, R Srinivasan, and Dinesh Karthik need to support their skipper with the bat with consistent runs. Their bowlers have been guilty of giving away too many runs and they have ended up giving 170+ scores in almost all the matches so far. They failed to take even a single wicket last match and gave away 160+ runs in just 17 overs. Sunil Sam, R Rajkumar, and Mohan Prasath must improve their line and lengths to trouble the batsmen with their bowling.

Teams Preview

Karaikudi Kaalai Preview

Key Players:

A Srikaanth – Skipper Anirudha played a scintillating knock last match to take his team to a good total. He missed out a well-deserved century by just 2 runs after being dismissed of the last ball. He smashed 7 boundaries and 7 sixes in the process. 

M Prasath – Mohan Prasath has just 4 wickets from 4 matches and is giving away runs at 9 RPO. He must create pressure in the middle overs with his accurate bowling and help other bowlers around him. He is one of an important member of Karaikudi Kaalai`s bowling unit.

TUTI Patriots Preview

Key Players:

Subramania Siva – Skipper Subramania Siva has scores of 3 & 1 in the last two matches he played. He needs to score more runs consistently with the bat and lead the from the front. 

A Venkatesh – Venkatesh was a good addition to the team in the last match. He bowled a brilliant spell of 4-0-18-1 with the ball. But, he was dismissed for a duck with the bat and will look add some vital runs in this match.

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Temperature: 29.7℃ Wind Speed: 14 k/h From: WNW Clouds: 14% Rainfall: 0.1 mm.

Dindigul pitch is a batting paradise and we can expect high scores in the range of 170-180 runs here. The boundaries are very small, and the outfield is fast will further favor the batsmen. The weather looks clear and dry on the match day. 

Toss: WIN the toss, BAT First

Teams batting first have won 4 out of 6 matches played here so far. The batting becomes under lights but teams must put a good score on board in the first essay. 

Winning Prediction

Both teams have a misfiring batting line-up and toothless bowling attack and are struggling to put a good show with the bat. Karaikudi Kaalai has a little edge over TUTI Patriots due to the presence of experienced players such as Dinesh Karthik and Anirudha Srikaath. We predict Karaikudi Kaalai team to win this match.
