CHE vs TUT Dream11 : Gilles look to affirm themselves of a spot in the top 4 when they square off against a lopsided TUTI Patriots outfit
The final day of the league stage encounters from Tamil Nadu Premier League 4 is finally upon us. And it’s a testament to the nature of the league as well, seeing both the encounters slated for the day bearing with them massive ramifications for the four sides indulging in them.
And perhaps the one of more importance is the day’s first encounter between TUTI Patriots and Chepauk Super Gilles. While TUTI Patriots are out of the league with their mere two wins bringing down the curtains on their sojourn, Gilles are very much alive and kicking in the league. Currently in third place with 8 points, a win would assure them of a spot in the qualifiers, a position the side will be looking to nail down today.
What adds to the importance of a win for the side is the fact that Kanchi Veerans who play later in the night are only two points behind them. A defeat for Gilles and a win for the Veerans could end throwing Gilles out of the league with Veerans having an extremely net run-rate at the moment. It’s a misdemeanour the side would like to avoid when they take on a side who have been one of the worst in the fourth edition of the league.
Both the sides enter this encounter having tasted defeats in their previous encounters with Ruby defeating TUTI Patriots by 17 runs. On the other hand, Gilles four match winning spree was quelled by Madurai Panthers who pulled off a comprehensive 33 run win to stall Gilles chances of moving all the way to second in the points tally.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
This is a tatters of a surface for batsmen. There’s absolutely nothing over here for the batters with the track playing horrendously for batting, breaking up right from over one to see massive turn come into immediately into the fixture. The afternoon encounter and conditions won’t improve this surface either and expect this to be a low scoring encounter, one where the side winning the toss decides to field first.

Their four match successive winning spree was stalled in their previous match but don’t expect that to hamper Chepauk Super Gilles of consolidating their spot in the top 4 today. They are clearly the better out of the outfits, a side find complete with pristine batting and bowling units, one which should see them emerge with the vital two points from this encounter.

CHE vs TUT Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keepers for CHE vs TUT Dream11
There a clear void of viable options in this segment, seeing us pick out A Aarif from Gilles due to his recent good scores with the bat along with his contributions with behind the wickets. Gilles should pick up more wickets today, increasing the chances of Aarif’s involvements in dismissals.
Batsmen for CHE vs TUT Dream11
With 224 runs in the league, KH Gopinath comes into our side from Chepauk Super Gilles as we continue building our Dream 11 side with picks from the firm favourites. The side have gone onto score 191 and 175 in their previous 5 matches, seeing us bring in Uthiraswamy Sasidev as well.
Elsewhere while TUTI Patriots have failed to register more than two wins, their previous encounter saw them make 160 runs, the third time they crossed 150 in their last five matches. Akshay Srinivasan is picked up by us after scoring 63 in the last match long with Subramania Siva.
All-Rounders for CHE vs TUT Dream11
Murugan Ashwin is the first player we have opted for in this facet with the spinner making for excellent value on this surface. He’s going to get the ball to turn sharply here and his legspin could end up wrecking havoc in a batting unit known for its lapses.
We have also picked up S Harish Kumar from the outfit with the 11 wickets seeing him become his side’s leading wicket taker.
Bowling Order for CHE vs TUT Dream11
With wickets a certainty in this match, we have gone for left arm spinner, R Alexander from the side. He’s failed to impress for some time now but he and Ashwin should end up picking up a good haul of wickets today given the pitch and nature of the opposition.
G Periyaswamy comes in as well for us while the 7 wickets in 5 matches see us opt for Athisayaraj Davidson and B Senthil Kumar from TUTI Patriots.
Captain And Vice-Captain for CHE vs TUT Dream11
We have decided to make Gopinath our side’s captain while S Harish Kumar is the vice-captain.
