Lyca Kovai Kings Preview

Their last game against the Salem Spartans had to be abandoned midway due to rain. Skipper Shahrukh Khan would have been upset given the strong position they were in before rain halted play. Khan would like his side to come up with a similar show in this game to earn their first victory of the tournament. 

Their batting looks good at the moment with R Kavin and ganga Sridhar Raju playing well in the last game. Sai Sudharsan played a blinder in the last game and strengthens the middle order with Khan at No. 4. The side would also look forward to big hits down the order from Abhishek Tanwar and U Mukilesh who are known for their big hitting abilities. 

Krishnamoorthy Vignesh and Elangovan Srinivasan would have to come up with wickets and tight spells sharing the new ball. S Ajith Ram has made headlines in the local circuit and shall look to prove his skills here in the game. With N Selva Kumaran and Khan in the attack the side does have a quality attack going into this game.

Weather Conditions

The skies over Chennai would be cloudy on July 23 and there are predictions for rains during the game. The wicket here is expected to play well at the start and shall slow down as the game progresses. A score of 180 runs would be a good total to defend on this surface.

Venue Details

MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai balances it out between the batsmen and the bowlers. Fast bowlers do get good rewards with the new ball, but we have also seen batsmen making good scores once they get their eyes set in. The odd ball stops on the batsmen and spinners have enjoyed a good record here.

Toss: To Bat

We have seen big scores being set up by the sides batting first on this surface but chasing them can be difficult as the track tends to slow down in the second innings. The wicket. The side that wins the toss in this game would like to bat first and aim at setting a big total on the board.

RTW vs LKK Winning Prediction

Lyca Kovai Kings did show promise in the last game with the bat, and they would have to carry on with the same form. But their bowling attack is untested, and it will have to do well against a strong batting line-up. It was a perfect start for the Ruby Trichy Warriors in the last game with their batsmen and bowlers looking clinical. This would make them favorites for the next game.
