Dindigul Dragons Preview
Runners up of the last season, Dindigul Dragons have got off to a good start in TNPL 2019 with 2 consecutive victories. Ashwin’s team shined with the ball against Chepauk defending 115, followed by a balanced performance with both bat and ball in the following game at Tirunelveli.
M Silambarasan was consistent with 2 four wicket hauls in both matches, while Ashwin finished with figures of 3 for 16 in Dindigul’s last game at this venue.
Along with a strong bowling attack, an attacking top order makes Dindigul Dragons a very competitive side in this match.
TUTI Patriots Preview
Patriots registered their first win of the season in the last match against Lyca Kovai Kings at Dindigul. The number 1 and 3 batsmen – Akshay Srinivasan and V Subramania Siva were consistent in both matches being among the top 2 run scorers in the side.
While their strike rates improved in the second game, crossing 200, the middle-order played better than their first game. S Abhishek and Vasanth Saravanan hit 5 sixes together towards the end, though the bowling performance wasn’t better than the previous one.
The economy rates of 4 bowlers crossed 10 r.p.o, while T Kumaran bowled 3 overs picking up 2 for 18.

Fantasy Team Tips
- A total of 4 fifties were scored by the openers in last 3 games at this venue. N Jagadeesan and Hari Nishanth have performed well in the last match here and could be an asset to your fantasy team.
- R Ashwin is definitely the top choice for an all-rounder. He bowled at an economy of below 5 picking up 3 wickets, hit 2 fours and a six to score 16, earning himself an overall bonus of +4 points in the fantasy team.
- M Silambarasan, left-arm orthodox from Dindigul Dragons earned a bonus of +1 and + 2 points in last 2 games for economies of 5.00 and 4.33 along with the 4 wicket haul bonus of +4 points. He is the power pick among the bowler from both sides.
- Good performances from S Abhishek and Vasanth Saravanan helped TUTI Patriots reach a good total. The top order could play freely, knowing the two batsmen in the middle are capable of converting good starts.
