DIN vs MAD Dream11 Team Prediction: Dragons look to seal their berth in the summit clash against Madurai Panthers in Qualifier 2 tonight.
They entered the first qualifier of the Tamil Nadu Premier League having finished in first place in the league standings after winning six successive matches but Dindigul Dragons failed to emulate that same form come their encounter against Chepauk Super Gilles. Although it wasn’t a result which will deter them too much with the side falling behind by just 5 runs but it sees them take the arduous route in their pursuit of a place in the summit clash.
Coming out to chase 170, Dindigul Dragons failed to up the ante sufficiently in the death overs as the side kept losing wickets at regular intervals in the final stages of the encounter. They ended up replying with 164-7, one that saw them heading into the second qualifier today against Madurai Panthers who ended up winning the eliminator against Kanchi Veerans.
Restricting the Veerans to 151, Madurai Panthers went onto win their fifth successive match after they chased down the target with 5 wickets off the last ball of their innings. The side have managed to overhaul what began as a dismal campaign for them to reach Qualifier 2 today, a run they’ll be looking to resonate as they look to reach the summit clash of the fourth edition of the league.

Pitch Conditions And Toss
With this surface having gotten more than a period of a week to be treated, expect the batsmen to have success over here, especially in the first part of the match. With an average score of 170 while batting first in the last five matches contested here, expect the score to be on the high side in today’s match before the surface eventually starts breaking up to assist the spinners.
With the side batting first just about edging the side fielding by 3-2, expect the team winning the toss electing to bat first here.

Dream 11 Picks for DIN vs MAD Dream 11
Wicket-Keepers for DIN vs MAD Dream 11
Perhaps the most important component for either side, both the teams have their top scorers over here. We are going to indulge in both of them with N Jagadeesan coming into our side from Dindigul Dragons after scoring good in the last match as well while from Madurai Panthers we are getting in Arun Karthik after his half-century in the side’s successful run chase in the eliminator.
Batsmen for DIN vs MAD Dream 11
It just the three batsmen far us in the facet with either side not having too many players who have exuded confidence. There is a real dearth of viable options in this department and our picks were done based on choosing players who’ll help free up credits to dole out in the ensuing two segments.
C Hari Nishaanth from Dindigul Dragons is the only player we were certain we wanted to select with him scoring good runs for the side along with Jagadeesan at the top of the order. We have followed his selection up with R Vivek from the side while S Jain comes in as well for us.
All-rounders for DIN vs MAD Dream 11
With Ashwin out of this encounter given his participation in India’s test series against West Indies, there aren’t any options who look worthy to indulge in from Dindigul Dragons. This has seen us pick out all three of our selections from Madurai Panthers, compensating for both their batsmen and bowlers here by getting in Jagadeesan Kousik, Abhishek Tanwar and N Selva Kumaran.
Bowlers for DIN vs MAD Dream 11
While pacer Kiran Akash was someone we wanted to get with the pacer being his side’s highest wicket taker, a lack of credits and Dindigul Dragons solid batting unit sees us veer clear of him. We have Dindigul Dragons highest wicket taker, M Silambarasan come in with his left arm spin set to leave the right handed batsmen perturbed.
N Mohammed and D Praanesh also come in from the side.
