Teams Preview

Ruby Trichy Warriors

After four games, Ruby Trichy Warriors still seek a victory. Twice they came near to win a match, but the two tied games did not offer a favorable outcome during the super overs. In their first match of this season against Karaikudi Kaalai, they had leveled KK's 171 runs while chasing in 20 overs, however, they lost the match in the super over after scoring 11, which KK chased in 4 balls. In the second game, RTW bowlers limited Super Gillies under 150 but their batsmen collapsed during the run chase. In their third outing, they lost to Lyca Kovai Kings by 26 runs while chasing 162. 

RTW's defeat against Siechem Madurai Panthers was their second super-over defeat in four games. RTW scored 142 runs in 20 overs thanks to Murali Vijay's solid innings of 66 balls 78 supported well by K Mukunth (run-a-ball 32). Lakshminarayanan Vignesh 3 for 28 helped RTW to keep the match in their control in 20 overs but the scores tied, and they had to play the super-over once again. However, while 13 runs were required in the super-over, Vijay got out without scoring a run and they could manage just 3 runs in that over.

Despite playing in just in 2 matches, Murali Vijay (159 runs, 2 half-centuries, both unbeaten) is the top-scorer for RTW. It shows how RTW are dependent on Murali Vijay. Saravan Kumar is the leading wicket-taker for RTW with 7 wickets in 4 matches, with an average of 19.14 and strike rate of 13.71.

Dindigul Dragons

Barring the first match against Chepauk Super Gillies, the Dragons have secured comfortable victories in other three games against SMP, TUTIP, and IKK as they posted 150 plus totals in these three games.

Against CSG in their opening game, the team's top order collapsed, but Ravichandran Ashwin's 19 balls 37 powered the team to a decent total of 115. M Silambarasan (4 for 13 in 3 overs) and Jagannathan Kaushik (2 for 14 in 3 overs) snatched the game from the Super Gillies. 

In the second game against Siechem Madurai Panthers, Narayan Jagadeesan's unbeaten innings of 87 off 51 balls helped the team to post a huge total of 182 runs on the board. R Ashwin (4 for 20) and Silambarasan (3 for 16) did the rest and the Dragons won the match by 30 runs. Against TUTI Patriots, Dindigul scored 173 runs while batting first thanks to half-centuries from Narayan Jagadeesan and R Ashwin. Ramalingam Rohit was awarded the player of the match for taking 3 wickets for 16 runs in this match.

Their previous outing against Idream Karaikudi Kaalai resulted in comfortable 10-wicket victory while chasing IKK's total of 158. Narayan Jagadeesan's yet another crucial knock of 78 off 47 along with with his opening partner and player of the match Hari Nishanth's 56 balls 81 sealed the match.

Key players for Dragons are Jagadeesan (235 runs in 4 innings, 3 half-centuries), Hari Nishanth (156 runs, 2 half-centuries in 4 innings) and all-rounder R Ashwin (105 runs and 6 wickets in 4 innings) while Silambarasan leads the bowling department with 9 wickets in 4 matches.

Pitch And Weather Conditions

The venue for this match is NPR College Ground, Dindigul. Out of 39 T20 domestic games played on this ground, 15 matches are won by the teams batting first while 24 times the teams batting second have won. Highest and lowest scores on this ground are 203/6 (Dindigul Dragons) and 59/10 (Ruby Trichy Warriors) respectively. The average first inning score is between 150-160 and average second innings score here is between140-150. Last three games here, the team batting first have scored 175 or more runs.

Toss Prediction

This season, the ground has produced two tied matches in 7 games, for which, we had to rely on super-overs. In 7 out of 10 matches of TNPL 2019, the teams batting first have won. The team winning the toss should bat first.

Winning Prediction

Head-to-head Dindigul Dragons have won more matches against Ruby Trichy Warriors (2-1). The teams reside at the opposite ends of the points table. Out of four games, at least twice RTW was unfortunate to remain at the losing end after the super-over. RTW's main problem is, except Murali Vijay, no other batsmen are firing. While R Ashwin is blessed to have great openers and strike bowlers. One-on-one Dindigul Dragons look a far better team than RTW and they will likely keep their sheet clean at the end of this match.

We predict Dindigul Dragons will defeat Ruby Trichy Warriors.
