CHE vs VBK Dream11 Team Prediction : Both outfits head out for their fourth successive win as they look to challenge for the top spot today
Friday brings with it two encounters in the Tamil Nadu Premier League and there couldn’t have been a finer way to wrap up today evening’s encounter than the match we have dished up our way. Clashing heads against each other will be two of the finest sides in the league till now, the second and third placed outfits in VBK Kanchi Veerans and Chepauk Super Gilles
What started off as a drab affair for these two sides as they both slumped to disappointing defeats in their league opener has taken no time in turning around for both these teams. They have ever since then gone on an unprecedented three match winning spree, placing them right in the echelons of the league standings and seeing them persistently snap at the heels of top placed Dindigul Dragons.
And when two sides of such stature take on each other today, the fireworks are bound to go off in a match which promises to light up a league which took time to sizzle but has finally come to life. Both these sides are complete units, having showcased both their batting and bowling strength across the course of their encounters. Expect fine margins to decide this encounter with extremely little to separate the two sides as things stand.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
With the pitch having come under the brunt of heavy cricket over the course of the last three days, seeing matches being held of it without any respite, this surface is going to continue to be tricky for batsmen. And with it being the second encounter of the day, expect the surface to only become more sluggish, making batting an extremely tepid task here.
Given the batting heavy units at our disposal today, expect this encounter to still be relatively around the 150 run mark with the side winning the toss clearly looking to bat first here.
Probable Playing 11
Chepauk Super Gilles
Kaushik Gandhi (c), Murugan Ashwin, Gopinath, Ganga Sridhar Raju, B Arun, R Alexander, Uthirasamy Sasidev, Harish Kumar, A Aarif (wk), Dev Rahul, G Periyaswamy
VBK Kanchi Veerans
K Vishal Vaidhya, Siddharth,S Lokeshwar, Baba Aparajith,R Satish, Sanjay Yadav, P Francis Rokins, NS Harish, K Gowtham, Silambarasan, R Suthesh
For us, VBK Kanchi Veerans are going to emerge as the winners of this encounter. They have a serious pool of skilled players, performers who went onto score 193 in the previous match before bundling out the opposition for just 135 to record a massive 58 run win.
It’s this overall complete identity of the side which makes them firm favourites for not only this encounter but the title as well. Expect them to win today and maybe even displace Dindigul Dragons at the top of the league.

Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keepers for CHE vs VBK Dream11
Our pick of S Lokeshwar from VCK Veerans is hardly a surprising one. He’s been one of the best batsman for the side, scoring two 50s in his last two encounters and with his side picking up a slew of wickets, he finds himself heavily involved in catches and stumpings as well.
Batsmen for CHE vs VBK Dream11
We are continuing picking off players from VBK Kanchi Veerans given the incredible basketful of incredible batsmen they have in their kitty. Opener S Siddharth is our first pick after he scored a 50 for the side the last time around the name we really wanted to bring into our side was Rajagopal Satish from the outfit.
He scored a 9 ball 47 in the previous match, a score which was preceded by equally good displays 31 and 22along with 7 wickets with the ball as well. Used more as an all-rounder by his side, his classification as a batsman helps our side massively and he could emerge as one of the difference makers for our Dream 11 side today.
We are also getting in Sanjay Yadav from the side given the role he’s been handed out by the team. While he’ll come out at the number 5 spot usually, he can be sent up the order as well if the side are searching as well and the boundary points he adds are invaluable to our team’s cause. From Gilles we are roping in KH Gopinath who scored 82 the last time around.
Opener Ganga Sridhar Raju comes in as well in what is the first time we are picking up 5 batsmen in a TNPL match, a testament to the incredible batting might of these two sides.
All-Rounders for CHE vs VBK Dream11
Our all-rounders department is entirely composed of players from Gilles with us brining in Murugan Ashwin and S Harish Kumar. Ashwin has snared 5 wickets till now and S Harish Kumar got 39 n the previous encounter, making them two players who the side have depended on heavily to perform in both the departments of the game.
Bowling Order for CHE vs VBK Dream11
The 8 wickets in 4 matches make R Alexander our first pick in this facet. He and Ashwin have formed a good spin unit for their side and on a wicket which will be heavily conducive to the slower variety of stuff, the side will bank on their slower bowlers to generate massive turn on the ball. Expect Alexander to get some wickets today as well as the side deploy spin for a good amount of the match.
From the Veerans we are getting in two players with Rangaraj Suthesh and K Gowtham Thamarai coming into our side. Thamarai has 7 wickets in his last three matches including 3 wickets in the previous match and up against a Kings outfit who have struggled in patches against pace, he could get a few wickets today as well.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We have decided to make Sathish our captain for this encounter while Lokeshwar is our vice-captain.
