Since their win in the super over against Ruby Trichy Warriors, Karaikudi Kaalai has lost 3 matches in a row. Of these 3 losses, Karaikudi were chasing a target of 170 plus in 2, and defending 158 runs in 1. Skipper Srikkanth Anirudha had not been getting runs since Karaikudi’s win in the opening match, where he had scored a fifty batting first. While he found his form in the last match against Dindigul Dragons, scoring 98 off 59 balls, the middle-order collapsed. Dinesh Karthik, Maan Bafna and Rajhamany Srinivasan were out soon without striking a partnership with the back in form captain. Dinesh Karthik’s presence in the team is likely to boost confidence in other players and with his experience, he will be a key batsman at number 3 for Karaikudi Kaalai.
The bowling hasn’t been particularly impressive in last few matches for Karaikudi. S Mohan Prasath, the left-arm orthodox bowler was among the few to have success for IKK. It will not be easy to bowl at this ground in Dindigul, given how the pitch behaved in the last match played here. R Rajkumar and Sunil Sam will have the responsibility to pick early wickets and get Karaikudi on top of the game.
Yo Mahesh, the bowling all-rounder with IPL experience under his belt, hasn’t picked a wicket in last 3 games. He will be eager to set things right for himself and his team. Though Dindigul Dragons is a stronger batting side with their top order in form, Karaikudi bowlers failed to pick a single DD wicket defending 158 in the last match.
Like the IKK, TUTI Patriots also have 1 win in 4 matches in TNPL 2019. The only win which came at this venue in Dindigul against Lyca Kovai Kings, was a close encounter as the Patriots won by 6 runs defending 155 runs in 13 overs. Since then, they have lost 2 matches in a row chasing 174 and 194 runs against Dindigul Dragons and VB Kanchi Veerans. The margin of these losses were 40 and 58 runs, indicating TUTI Patriots’ weakness lies in chasing targets of 160 plus.
In their win, the top batting performances were those of Akshay Srinivasan (31), V Subramania Siva (44) at the top, followed by quick innings in the middle from S Abhishek (20) and Vasanth Saravanan (29). Since then Abhishek has scored 7 runs in 17 balls in 2 matches, while Srinivasan has managed to score 4 runs in 11 balls he played in last 2 games. The top and the middle-order is out of form and has failed twice chasing big totals. While these batsmen haven’t had a great knock lately, they still remain key players for TUTI Patriots going into this match.
V Davidson and T Kumaran, the opening bowlers for TUTI Patriots have been expensive at the start, giving away boundaries and allowing the openers to settle down easily. A Venkatesh, a right-arm leg-break bowler was given a chance in the last match, and he made the most of it picking up 2 for 18 in 4 overs. M Ganesh Moorthi, the left-arm orthodox bowler, along with right-arm medium-fast, S Senthilnathan will be key bowlers in for TUTI Patriots in the middle overs.
