The league games of the Tamil Nadu Premier League 2022 are over, and we are into the Eliminator game of the tournament. The Lyca Kovai Kings would take on the Madurai Panthers as they fight to remain in the hunt for the title. The Lyca Kovai Kings won the last game against the Nellai Royal Kings and the Panthers defeated the Ruby Trichy Warriors. Both sides would be high on confidence.   

The Lyca Kovai Kings have shown good form in the last five games where they have won four of them. This would make the side confident as they have their key batsmen in good form. Madurai Panthers had won the league game between the two sides earlier, but the side has been inconsistent. As it is a do-or-die contest both sides would be under pressure, and we expect a tough game. 

Madurai Panthers Preview

NS Chaturved’s side sealed its place in the playoffs with a 36-run win in the last game against the Ruby Trichy Warriors. However, the side has lacked consistency, and this is something they would need to overcome in this contest. Chaturved would like his players to take inspiration from their victory against the Kovai Kings earlier in the season and win this one in style.  

Arun Karthik has been consistent, and he would have to set up a good opening wicket stand with V Aaditya. Balchander Anirudh did well in the last game, and he would look to add runs in the middle order with J Koushik and Rithik Easwaran. The lower middle order hasn’t been consistent for the team and the likes of Chaturved and Sunny Sandhu would have very important roles to play.   

The side would have to bowl well as their opponents have a strong batting line-up. Sandhu was brilliant with the new ball and the side would expect good support from Kiran Akash. Varun Chakaravarthy is one of the best bowlers in this format and he would have to trouble the Kovai Kings’ batsmen. P Saravanan, R Mithun, and Jagatheesan Kousik bring variety to this attack.  

Madurai Panthers Predicted Playing XI:

NS Chaturved (c), Arun Karthik, V Aaditya, Balchander Anirudh, Rithik Easwaran (wk), Jagatheesan Kousik, Sunny Sandhu, P Saravanan, Kiran Akash, Varun Chakaravarthy, R Mithun

Madurai Panthers Actual Playing XI:

J Kousik, Gowtham V, Varun Chakravarthy, PK Saravanan, V Aditya, NS Chaturved, Sunny Sandhu, L Kiran Akash, B Anirudh Sita Ram, Arun Karthik, Rithik Easwaran

Lyca Kovai Kings Preview

It was a thrilling end to their league campaign as Shahrukh Khan’s side defeated the table toppers Nellai Royal Kings by 5 runs. They batted well and shall look to push their form forward. The side has a strong batting line-up with key batsmen having shown good form. Khan would look for a better show from his bowlers as this has been a problem for them in recent matches.   

Openers Ganga Sridhar Raju and Suresh Kumar have been consistent at the top and runs would be expected from their bats in this game. In the middle order Sai Sudharsan has done well and the side would like him to steer the innings with Shahrukh Khan and Abhishek Tanwar. Shijit Chandran, U Mukilesh, and Balu Surya add to the side’s firepower with the bat down the order.  

Abhishek Tanwar has been one of the leading wicket-takers in the tournament and the onus would be on him to deliver early wickets with Manish Ravi. S Ajith Ram and Balu Surya have an important role in this game as they can stop the flow of runs. The side would also need Khan and R Divakar to bowl well in this important game as they have been giving away easy runs.

Lyca Kovai Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Shahrukh Khan (c), Ganga Sridhar Raju, J Suresh Kumar (wk), Sai Sudharsan, Shijit Chandran, U Mukilesh, Abhishek Tanwar, Balu Surya, S Ajith Ram, R Divakar, Manish Ravi

Lyca Kovai Kings Actual Playing XI:

J Suresh Kumar, U Mukilesh, Ganga Sridhar Raju, Surya B, S Ajith Ram, Shahrukh Khan, Sai Sudharsan, R Divakar, Manish GR, Shijit Chandran, Abhishek Tanwar

Weather Conditions

The skies over Salem would be clear on July 26. The wicket would be flat, but we have seen a slow surface where the bowlers have been able to trouble the batsmen. The ball isn’t expected to come to the bat easily and hence the side batting first in this game would be happy with a score in the range of 170 runs.

Venue Details

SCF Cricket Ground, Salem is a small ground with short boundaries. The outfield is fast, and this allows batsmen to play their strokes easily. There isn’t much on this track for the fast bowlers who have to use their variations to do well. Spinners have enjoyed bowling on this track as the ball stops on the batsmen and turns sharply.

Toss: To Bowl

We haven’t seen too many high-scoring games at this venue. The wicket has been slow, and the ball has stopped on the batsmen. Setting up a total here is a bit of a challenge for any side. As there would be pressure on both teams, we expect to see the side winning the toss opting to bowl first. 

There would be pressure on both teams as the loser of this contest would have to pack their bags. The Madurai Panthers have been plagued by the poor form of their batsmen. The side would need its middle and lower middle order to deliver the goods for them to win this game. The Lyca Kovai Kings come here with good form, and they have done well in recent games. This would make them favorites to win here.
