lkk vs idtt Match Prediction & Analysis

TNPL2021 is a very short league format with each team facing the other team only once. We almost over the half-way mark and no team has managed to create a distance between the other teams. The top placed team and the bottom placed team have just 4 point difference (i.e) a couple of wins might turn things around. Kovai Kings and Tiruppur Tamizhans are in the middle of the congested table but will need to win more matches to distance themselves to the top. We can expect a superb contest with each match changing the qualification scenario.

Teams Preview

Lyca Kovai Kings Preview

Kovai team posted a good total of 172 runs on board in their last game here. Sai Sudharsan (61 runs) continued his superb form to register his third fifty of the season. Shahrukh Khan (58 runs) and Abhishek Tanwar (22 runs) applied the finishing touches with quick-fire knocks in the death overs.

Ajith Ram and Divakar picked up 3 wickets each and gave just 42 runs in their combined 8 overs to topple the opposition. Abhishek Tanwar picked up 2 crucial wickets but went for runs at over 10 RPO. They restricted the opposition to 153 runs to win comfortably by 19 runs.  

Top players to bet on:

Shahrukh Khan – Shahrukh Khan scored 58 runs off 30 balls with 2 boundaries and 5 sixes last night. He has been demolishing bowlers at a strike arte of 210 this season (77 runs till now).    

Ajith Ram – Ajith claimed 3 wickets of the top-5 batsmen in the opposition to finish with figures of 4-0-24-3. He will look to continue his purple patch in the middle overs in this match too.

Lyca Kovai Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Ganga Sridhar Raju, J Suresh Kumar (wk), Sai Sudharsan, Ashwin Venkataraman, U Mukilesh, Shahrukh Khan (c), Abhishek Tanwar, N Selva Kumaran, Krishnamoorthy Vignesh, S Ajith Ram, R Divakar

IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans Preview

Tiruppur Tamizhans were bundled out for just 110 runs in the last game. Dinesh lead a lone fight at top and top scored with 26 runs while Mohammed (19 runs) and Aravind (14 runs) came up with late lower order runs for the team.  Their batting order needs to deliver more consistently with the last 2-3 matches coming up.

Their bowlers put on a spirited fight with the ball to defend the target.  Mohan Prasath claimed 2 early wickets in the chase. Aswin Crist, R Rajkumar, and M Mohammed never gave easy runs in the middle overs but the 110-run target was never going to pressurize the opposition batters as they waited for the run scoring opportunities.

Top players to bet on:

Maan Bafna – Maan Bafna is their leading run scorer with 98 runs at a strike rate of 120 so far. They will expect him to play a big knock in this crucial match to take their team forward.

Mohan Prasath – Prasath took 2 early wickets to put their team in the driver`s seat but his final over went for 12 overs and he ended up with figures of 4-0-26-2 in the last game. We expect him to pick more wickets in this match. 

IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans Predicted Playing XI:

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

Weather Conditions

Chennai is expected to have a cool and breezy weather with just 10-20% chances of rain on the match day. We expect to have a full match with no weather interruptions.

Venue Details

MA Chidambaram stadium pitch has slowed down with a lot of matches being played and spinners might come into play owing to the used nature. Overcast conditions and early moisture might aid pacers. We expect the runs to be around 140-150 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing teams have 9-3 win-loss ratio in favor of them in the matches so far and we expect both captains to bowl first if they win the toss.

LKK vs IDTT Winning Prediction

Kovai Kings have a superb batting line-up with the likes of Sai Sudharsan and Shahrukh Khan in scintillating form and other chipping in with crucial wickets. Their bowlers need to perform well as a unit.  Tiruppur tamizhans have an inconsistent batting line-up with few individual brilliances helping them score runs. Their bowling unit is putting a brave fight with low totals so far. We expect Kovai Kings to win this match owing to their better batting line-up.

Kovai Kings will win the match.
