Srikkanth Anirudha’s side failed to qualify for the playoffs last year, and they will look for a good start to the season. The side has made several changes and brought new players to the squad.

There will be clear skies over Coimbatore, and we shall have a good game. The wicket would have some assistance for the fast bowlers, and batsmen will likely find it challenging during the game. A score of 170 runs would be a good total in this high-pressure game.
SNR College Cricket Ground, Coimbatore, is a small ground with short boundaries. The ball comes to the bat nicely on this flat surface. Fast bowlers have done well here, and we expect to see them do well in this game. Spinners get the ball to turn, but they have little margin for error due to the small size of the ground.
Most teams have won the toss and decided to field in this venue. There will be assistance for the bowlers as the wicket is fresh. It will get better as the game progresses. Thus, the side winning the toss shall look to bowl first on this track and aim at dismissing the opposition for a small total.
IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans don’t have a good record against the Lyca Kovai Kings. The side would need its top and middle order to deliver the goods for them to win this game. The Lyca Kovai Kings come here with confidence as they have depth in their bowling as well as batting. It would make them favorites to win here.
