The track at Tirunelveli seems to be an extremely good one to bat on. The ball comes on nicely and the pitch assists stroke-makers. So, the batsmen can go through their shots quite comfortably. The average score of 162 also proves that the teams are posting above par totals.
With the pitches expected to slow down as the tournament progresses, the trend of batting first should continue. In the last 5 games of TNPL. Chasing team has lost 3 games. The records are relatively in favor of batting first team. We anticipate the team winning toss will look to bat first.
We expect to be a thrilling contest as two leading sides in the ongoing season will take on each other. Though Dindigul Dragons have more win in the league compared to the opponent, Cheapuk Gillies looks marginally favorite to win this game. Unlike opponent, Chepauk Gillies got many individuals who can perform with the bat. Besides, Chepauk Gillies has one of best bowling attack in the ongoing tournament and the two quality all-rounder Vijay Shankar and Harish Kumar. Hence we anticipate Cheapuk Gillies will win this game and will move to finals
