CHE vs RUB Dream 11 Team: After suffering defeats in their opening encounters in the league, these two sides turn to each other for their first two points
For the Chepauk Super Gilles, Tamil Nadu Premier League 4 was all about forgetting the aberrations of last season and overturning a horrendous run of fixtures this year. The side managed to win just the solitary match last year, sitting right in the trenches of the league standings following some inclement showings and looked to change their fortunes come this season.
However the first game of the ongoing season saw them be put down once again as the side registered their first defeat of the season as they were put down by Dindigul Dragons who went onto defend a paltry 116 against them. It was a horrid batting display by the Gilles, one the side will be looking to rectify if they are to enjoy a more fruitful time in this edition of the league.
Elsewhere while Ruby Trichy Warriors ended up losing their opening encounter as well, it wasn’t a horrid performance by any means. Revelling us in one of the most exciting matches of the season till now, the side were engaged in a super over with Karaikudi Kaalai after both the sides couldn’t be separated, with either putting on 171 on the scoreboard. Things ultimately failed to swing Ruby’s way with the side failing to defend the 10 runs they managed to scramble together in the super over.
Now taking on each other today, the agenda for either side is clear. Both these outfits will be looking to register their first win of the league today and leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of their first points. Expect this to be an enthralling match, one which could easily go down to the last over.
Ruby Trichy Warriors vs Chepauk Super Gillies Match Prediction
With a used pitch in play for this one, expect batting to be a little tricky proposition today. The surface should be a sluggish one, one that plays a little low and sees the ball stop and come onto the bat, making strokeplay a little treacherous ask.
It’s this scenario which shifts the balance in Ruby’s favour with the side having immense depth in their batting line-up, something they showed in the first match. This surface could prove to be another one where Gilles are obliterated and we see Ruby coming out of this encounter with their first points of TNPL 4.
Wicket-Keeper for CHE vs RUB Dream 11
Ruby’s wicket-keeper K Mani Bharathi has been picked up by us for this match owing to two reasons. He’s not only going to be heavily involved in catches and stumpings but is bound to get a nice little score as well, something we have decided to back on for this encounter.
Batsmen for CHE vs RUB Dream 11
After being his side’s top-scorer in the previous match, Ruby’s Murali Vijay has been picked up by us. He’s accompanied by Baba Indrajith who missed out the last match but we see him being back for this one.
In what is a trivalent of selections from Ruby in this facet given how exuberant a batting line-up they posses at their disposal, we have also picked by S Aravind from their side for this one. The pitch will be tricky to play on but if you get settled in the middle, it is also one which will richly reward clean strokeplay.
All-Rounders for CHE vs RUB Dream 11
With us having indulged in no one from Chepauk Super Gilles yet, we begin with their best player in the format, Murugan Ashwin to come in for us. His side’s top point getter from the previous fixture, Ashwin has scored 163 runs and picked up 8 wickets in 7 matches, seeing him come into our side once again for this encounter as well.
D Rahul is also picked up from the side while we have gone ahead with two players from Ruby as well. With the side heavily turning to their all-rounders to bowl out a majority of overs as well, in Ganapathy Chandrasekar and Lakshimarayan Vignesh we have two players who are bound to pick up wickets. Gilles showed they just can’t bat in the previous match and this sees us indulge ourselves in a pick of bowling options from the side.
Bowling Order for CHE vs RUB Dream 11
G Periyaswamy and R Alexander come in from Gilles with us particularly impressed by the spell Alexander doled out the last time around. He was a major cause of dwindling the Dragons’ innings, bowling a restrictive line and length with his wicket to wicket bowling seeing him pick up wickets regularly.
Elsewhere from Ruby we have Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore be selected by us to complete our Dream 11 side for this match.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Aravind is our captain for today evening’s encounter while Ashwin has been made the vice-captain.
