Wicket-keeper batsman Narayan Jagadeesan has been in stupendous form in this season as well. He is the leading scorer for the Dindigul side with 157 runs from three games at an average of 78.50. He is the prime player in the batting line-up and once again the onus will be on him to deliver with the bat.

Karaikudi Kaalai players need to pull their socks up in the game versus unbeaten Dindigul Dragons. They will have to up their game as soon as possible before the qualification scenarios go out of their hands.
In the previous two games, Karaikudi side failed to chase the score. Key batsmen failed to make an impact and it has been the main cause for their failure. After the in-form batsman Srikkanth Anirudha got out early of the inning, others batsmen also failed very quickly. They need to come up with a much solid performance to turn the tables around and get back to the winning ways.
The star player Dinesh Karthik joining the team must have boosted their spirits. Arguably, he is one of the best batsmen in the TNPL. He possesses great ability to strike the ball and got a great experience of playing at the national level and IPL league. He can pose a strong barrier for opponent bowling.
Bowling unit of Sunil Sam, Yo Mahesh, V Lakshman and S Prasath were very ordinary with the ball in the previous game, all bowlers except S Sam gonna for above 7+ runs per over. Sunil Sam has been the top wicket-taker for the side so far, took 6 wickets from 3 games. The bowling unit also needs to come up with good performance versus the batting heavy Dindigul Dragons side.
Rajhamany Srinivasan, V Lakshman, Sunil Sam, Maan Bafna, Laxmesha Suryaprakash, R Rajkumar, M Shajahan, RD Ashwin Kumar, S Mohan Prasath, S Anirudha, Dinesh Karthik
|S Mohan Prasath||4.0||0||33||2||8.25|
|S Mohan Prasath||4.0||0||33||2||8.25|

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 168 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 all 5 games. The records are in favour of batting first team. We anticipate the team winning toss will look to bat first.
It will be a tough challenge for Karaikudi Kaalai when they take early leaders in the tournament – Dindigul Dragons. Dindigul side led by inspirational skipper R Ashwin playing quality all-round cricket, on the other hand, star player Dinesh Karthik likely to feature in Karaikudi Kaalai playing eleven. However, The Dindigul Dragons look the favorites in this game based on their performances in earlier games. We predict Dindigul Dragons will win this match.
