Chepauk Super Gillies would be under pressure as they take on the Salem Spartans in 12th game of the Tamil Nadu Premier League, 2021. The Super Gillies come here after a loss against the Nellai Royal Kings where most of their batsmen failed to occupy the crease. The Salem Spartans on the other hand had a good day at the office defeating the IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans.
The Spartans did well with the bat and the ball in the last game and they are currently sitting in the second place on the points table. The side would look to go one step up with a win here. The Super Gilles on the other hand batted poorly in the last game and it remains to be seen if they can register their first win of the season in this game.
Daryl Ferrario’s side did well in the last game against the IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans. Batting first they put up a good score on the board and defended it successfully. Most of their batsmen got starts in the game but the skipper would like to see them convert these into big scores in this game.
KH Gopinath and S Abhishek started the innings well in the last game, but the side would expect a solid opening wicket stand from them in this game. The middle order is looking rock solid with Akshay Srinivasan, Vijay Shankar and Ferrario scoring runs in the last game. The side would also look forward to big hits towards the end from the likes of U Sushil and Ravi Karthikeyan.
G Periyaswamy bowled miserly in the last game and along with the experienced Murugan Ashwin, he would look to contain the flow of runs. Shankar and M Ganesh Moorthi need to come up with better efforts with the new ball as they leaked runs in the last game. The likes of B Praanesh and Karthikeyan add to the bowling options for the side.

It was a one-man show for Kaushik Gandhi’s side in the last game against the Nellai Royal Kings which they lost by 7 wickets. N Jagadeesan did extremely well with the bat but there was hardly any support for him from the other end. Gandhi would want to see all-round efforts from his side here as they look for their first win of the season.
N Jagadeesan looked brilliant, but he would need good support from Gandhi opening the batting for the side. S Sujay and Rajagopal Sathish missed out in the last game, and they need to add to the score here. The side has good depth in the batting and shall expect big hits from the bat of Uthirasamy Sasidev and Sonu Yadav in this game.
Rajagopal Sathish is having a good tournament and he would have to get early breakthroughs for the side sharing the new ball with Dev Rahul. R Alexander, Sonu Yadav and Jaganath Sinivas went for runs in the last game and they have an important role to play here. Harish Kumar and Manimaran Siddharth need to play good supporting role for the side to win.

The skies over Chennai would be mostly clear on July 28 but the batting conditions would be tough due to the slow nature of the surface. Spinners have found lot of assistance on this surface in the past. The side batting first here would target a score of 180 runs.
MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai is known for having a slow surface and batsmen have to work hard on this track to get their runs. Fast bowlers who mix their lines and lengths have done well on this wicket. Spinners enjoy bowling on this surface as the ball grips the surface and takes sharp turn.
Most teams have preferred to bat first on this track as it has a history of slowing down as the game progresses. Batting in the second innings becomes a big challenge at this venue. Hence, we believe that the side winning the toss would prefer to bat first.
The Chepauk Super Gillies would be under great pressure going into this game. Their batsmen underperformed in the last game and their bowlers too had a bad day at the offices. The Salem Spartans on the other hand looked in good form in both departments of the game and start as favorites to win this contest.
