TNPL Match 26 Squad Comparison

Karaikudi Kaalai

After their super over win in their first match of TNPL 2019, Karaikudi has lost 5 matches in a row. 2 of these losses came at this ground in Tirunelveli. Chasing 176 runs against Chepauk, Karaikudi managed to get just 121-8 on the board, while in the next match Karaikudi scored 158-7 batting first, courtesy Srikkanth Anirudha’s 98 runs inning. Aniruddha’s side lost by 10 wickets defending 158 against Dindigul Dragons. The team is dependent on Srikkanth Anirudha in the batting department. The middle-order has collapsed every time Anirudha failed to play a big inning. M Shajahan, left-arm orthodox bowler played an unbeaten knock of 41 off 23 balls at number 7 chasing 155 runs in the last match against Kovai. He wasn’t supported by batsmen on the other end and Karaikudi lost by 15 runs.

Rajhamany Srinivasan, Maan Bafna, Yo Mahesh and V Aditya have all failed collectively in the middle to build the innings after early losses and cruise it to a decent total. Even after a 98-runs inning for the skipper, Karaikudi could only manage to get 158 runs on the board. That tells a lot about their batting depth and strength. Sunil Sam, Maan Bafna, R Rajkumar and M Shajahan are their main bowlers. There isn’t much consistency in the bowling for Karaikudi, though Sunil Sam had a good economy rate in the last match, while M Shajahan picked 1 for 4 in 1 over. R Rajkumar tends to be expensive with the ball and has been out of form with the bat.

Madurai Panthers

Madurai has 4 wins in 6 matches in the league with 1 more match to go. All the wins have come at Dindigul, while they have lost 2 matches at Tirunelveli. Madurai Panthers have won twice batting second in TNPL 2019. They tied chasing 142 against Trichy, winning the super over, while they won convincingly against TUTI Patriots chasing 125 runs. While Arun Karthik is crucial to the batting order, A Sarath Raj, Shijit Chandran, Jagatheesan Kousik have all contributed on multiple occasions. After Kousik and Abhishek Tanwar field to score much at number 4 and 5, Nilesh Subramanian scored 31 off 15 balls at number 6 helping his side 172 batting first.

Arun Karthik and Jagatheesan Kousik are in good form and will look to play big innings in the last league game for Madurai. Skipper Shijit Chandran who’s played at different positions allowing other batsmen to play before him will be crucial in a chase along with Abhishek Tanwar. Abhishek Tanwar was the top bowler in the last match picking up 3 for 18 in 4 overs. Kiran Akash also picked 3, while Rahil Shah and Kousik picked a wicket each. Jagatheesan Kousik was expensive with the ball, however, the bowling efforts from other bowlers didn’t allow the opposition any leeway. Kiran Akash and Rahil Shah are expected to deliver for Madurai with the ball, while Abhishek Tanwar has the ability to deliver with both bat and ball.

Our Prediction for Karaikudi Kaalai vs Madurai Panthers

Madurai Panthers are favourites to win this match

Madurai is in good form and seem a better overall team than Karaikudi. Madurai has depth in their batting and everyone in the line up contributes while Karaikudi is heavily dependent on Srikanth Anirudha. With 3 consecutive wins, Madurai must have the momentum with them and will be confident going into their last league match.

A seesaw between the live betting odds was seen on betting sites during the last TNPL match. A good start Kovai Kings made them favourites in the match winner betting market, while Dindigul were favourites after wickets started to fall. Dindigul were firm favourites to win chasing a target of 135, but then odds again flipped in favour of Kovai as the early wickets fell.
