*Our match preview predictions are fully researched and provided in good faith but no profits are guaranteed. Please gamble responsibly, you should only ever gamble with money you can afford to lose.
Tuti Patriots team has been the most consistent team in TNPL from the inaugural season and would be hoping to carry on their best form in this season as well.
In 2016, the opening season of TNPL, Tuti Patriots were the champion. In the second season, 2017, they were the table topper in the group stage. However, they lost in the final game versus Chepauk super Gillies. In the previous season, the team failed to make it to playoffs, they were at fifth place in point table.
Skipper Washington Sundar is likely to miss the first couple of games for Tuti Patriots as he is currently on the national duty, playing for India A. The all-rounder is the key player for the team, as he has got a great experience of playing in T-20 leagues. In his absence, the responsibility will be on the S Dinesh to lead the team in the batting department.
Bowling unit will be led by Athisayaraj Davidson. Touted as the Tamil version of Lasith Malinga, his awkward bowling action made him an incredibly difficult customer in the death overs. In last season, The Tuti Patriots spearhead picked 13 wickets from seven matches at a remarkable strike-rate of 12.9. He will be eying for similar performance for this season.

Skipper D Rohit led team will be looking to put a clinical performance to start their campaign on high. The team got a good bunch of young talented and experienced player in the side.
In batting, The 32-year-old wicket-keeper batsman Arun Karthik was instrumental in helping his side win the 2018 tournament. In the previous season, he played some gem of knocks opening the innings for his team, scored 472 runs in 10 games at a staggering average of about 79. His 75-run knock in the final was a treat to watch. The team will be relying heavily on him to make most of the runs.
In the previous season, Abhishek Tanwar led Madurai Panthers bowling attack quite splendidly. While an economy-rate of 9.06 might seem to be on the expensive side, the right-arm seamer's propensity of getting crucial scalps enabled him to become the leading wicket-taker of the tournament in the previous season. He took 15 wickets by an average of 22.06 in TNPL 2018. Once again the onus will be on him to deliver with the ball.
