Match Preview

Kovai Kings put an excellent show with the bat despite losing their last match against TUTI Patriots in a shortened game. Anthony Dhas played one of his best knock ever scoring 63 runs in just 26 balls. He smashed 7 massive sixes and 2 boundaries in the process. Dhas scored 63 runs in the 71-run partnership with Akkil Srinaath (32 runs). Kings top order failed in this match after an impressive performance in their first match. Anthony Dhas was the highest wicket-taker with 3 wickets in the match. He was rightly awarded Man of Match for his performance despite his team`s loss. K Vignesh took the wickets of both the openers early in the match. Their bowling unit struggled to control run flow with every bowler giving runs at an economy rate of over 9 RPO. Kovai Kings will take the confidence of their valiant chase of 155 runs in 13 overs after reeling at 11/3 in 2 overs. 

Ruby Trichy Warriors are the only team that is yet to score points. They failed to chase an average score of 148 runs in the second match. They were reduced to 50/5 in the 12-over mark. Only three batsmen crossed the two-digit score and they were dismissed for just 107 runs. They missed the services of Murali Vijay in this match after his massive knock in the first match. Their bowling unit did a commendable job to restrict the opposition to an average score of 148 runs. Skipper Sai Kishore, L Vignesh, and K Vignesh were very economical with the ball and picked up crucial wickets too. Saravan Kumar produced 2 wickets and is their leading wicket-taker in two matches. All the bowlers took at least a wicket and made their presence felt in their last match. They fell agonizingly close in the first match losing the super-over contest.

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Weather Conditions

Tirunelveli pitch is a good batting pitch and batsmen find scoring easier early in the match. The pitch tends to slow down as the match progresses. The average first innings score here is 158 runs. The weather forecast looks cloudy but has just 10% chances of rain on the match day.

Toss: WIN the toss, BAT First

Teams batting first have won both the matches played here so far. The pitch gets slower in the second innings and batsmen will find it hard to time the ball.

Winning Prediction

Kovai Kings have a destructive batting order in good form and rhythm with the likes of Mukunf, Anthony Dhas, Shahrukh Khan, and Akkil Srinaath. Ruby Trichy Warriors have an ill-performing batting order and they will miss the services of Murali Vijay. Both team bowlers have leaked runs in the tournament.

We expect Kovai Kings to win this match.
