It will be a battle for the top spot on the points table as Dindigul Dragons take on defending champions Lyca Kovai Kings in the 16th game of the Tamil Nadu Premier League, 2023. Both teams have won three games each and look in good form. The Dragons defeated the Chepauk Super Gillies in the last game, while the Kovai Kings come here with a victory over Ba11sy Trichy.
The Dindigul Dragons have dominated in almost all the games they have played. They have the strongest bowling attack for any side in this tournament and have used it to their advantage. The Kovai Kings have done well, but their top order has been inconsistent, which will be an issue for the side. We expect a thrilling contest as both teams battle for supremacy.
It was a thrilling win for Ravichandran Ashwin’s side as they defeated the defending champions Chepauk Super Gillies by 1 run in the last game. With this win, the side has moved to the top of the points table. They would look to continue with the dominance and bank on their strengths and take a step closer to a berth in the Eliminator.
Shivam Singh and Rahul got starts in the last game, and the side will expect a big opening wicket stand from them. Baba Indrajith has done well and must build partnerships with Boopathi Kumar and Ashwin in the middle order. The lower middle order rescued them in the last game, and they will expect runs from Adithya Ganesh, C Sarath Kumar, and Suboth Bhati.
They have a strong bowling attack and shall expect good spells with the new ball from P Saravana Kumar and S Arun. Ashwin and Varun Chakravarthy have a lot of experience and will look to trouble the Kovai Kings’ batsmen in the middle overs. Suboth Bhati must fill in the role of a support bowler and keep things tight at his end.

The Lyca Kovai Kings have won three out of four games well and defeated Ba11sy Trichy in the last game. Shahrukh Khan will look to continue with the same momentum. They are up against a strong side, and Khan will expect good performances from his key players. They must bat well in this game to win and move to the top of the points table.
S Sujay did well in the last game, and he must give the side an electrifying start with J Suresh Kumar. Sai Sudharsan adds solidity to this line-up in the middle order, and he needs to add runs with Ram Arvindh and U Mukilesh. Shahrukh Khan and M Mohammed must do the heavy lifting in the lower middle order.
Thamarai Kannan and Manimaran Siddharth bowled well in the last game, and they need to put the Dragons under pressure. Valliappan Yudheeswaran, M Mohammed, and Jhatavedh Subramanyan must bowl in the right areas in the middle overs. Shahrukh shall look to use his experience and deliver the goods in the supporting act.

The skies over Salem would be partly cloudy on June 25. The wicket would be flat though the bowlers are expected to get some assistance at the start of the game. The side that bats first here shall look to put up 180 runs on the board to feel safe.
SCF Cricket Ground has been a good venue for batsmen as the shorter boundaries and a fast outfield have allowed them to score runs easily at this venue. The wicket can be tough on the fast bowlers as there isn’t much for them. Spinners have done well as the rough surface lets them turn the ball sharply.
The wicket will be good to bat on, as we had seen last year. Chasing scores has been the norm in this format of the game. Most sides have won games chasing targets. This trend will continue, and the side winning the toss shall have no hesitation in bowling first.
It will be a battle of nerves between the two teams. The Lyca Kovai Kings have done well against the Dindigul Dragons in the past, but they are up against a very strong side. Their batsmen must deliver the goods for the side to win this game. The Dragons have the strongest bowling attack, giving them a slight edge in this game.
Dindigul Dragons to win!
