Match Preview

Dindigul Dragons are the only undefeated team in the tournament and they have won all their 4 matches so far. They won their last match against Karaikudi Kaalai by 10 wickets in a chase of 160 runs. Openers Hari Nishanth and N Jagadeesan put up a clinical performance with the bat scoring 81* & 78* runs respectively. Skipper Ravi Ashwin has played some good cameos to boost the team score and is raring to go with the bat in hand. Rest of the batting line-up is untested so far with only limited opportunities.

M Silambarasan has been their highest wicket-taker in the tournament with 9 scalps. He has formed a brilliant bowling partnership with Skipper R Ashwin in the middle. J Koushik and R Rohit have chipped in with vital contributions for the team in the bowling department. 

Ruby Trichy Warriors are on the opposite end of their opponents losing all their four matches played so far. They have been twice unlucky to end on the losing side in the super overs. M Vijay has played two good knocks and both the matches have ended up as tie and eventually ended with a bitter result in super overs. Aditya Barooh, Mani Bharathi, and Mukunth have come up with starts but failed to convert them into good scores.

P Saravan Kumar and L Vignesh have been the consistent wicket-takers for the team and have bowled in crucial junctures of the match. M Poiyamozhi and K Vignesh have made contributions but are highly inconsistent with their line and lengths leaking easy runs. Skipper R Sai Kishore is yet to make a good mark this season with his performance.

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Weather Conditions

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 the last 5 encounters here barring the super over the contest. The batting becomes difficult under lights and teams will look to bat first and put pressure on the opposition.

Winning Prediction

Dindigul Dragons are playing their best game with their captain leading from the front with all-round performance. Ruby Trichy Warriors are having a hard time and they will be relieved of the qualification pressure now. We predict Dindigul Dragons to win this contest.
