DIN vs TUT Dream11 Team and Predicted Playing 11 : Dindigul Dragons go out in search of their third consecutive win in TNPL 2019
With the weekend having made an onset , it brings with us two matches from Tamil Nadu Premier League, making today an action filled day of cricket. And the first encounter sees table toppers Dindigul Dragons square off against TUTI Patriots as in a match which promises to serve our way an enthralling brand of cricket.
Currently top of the league standings, the Dragons deservingly sit in the pinnacle of TNPL 4 after having registered convincing wins in both of their encounters till now. It’s the bowling unit which has stood tall for them, throwing the kitchen sink at more in both of their extremely well crafted wins.
While the first match was an edge of the seat thriller, one where Dragons showed immense composure in to pull off a stunning run defence of just 115, the second was way more conviction. They ended up handing out a drubbing of 30 runs to Madurai Panthers, scoring a hefty 182 before curtailing the opposition’s innings for just 152.
Elsewhere, the TUTI Patriots managed to taste success in their second encounter of the league as well against the Kings in a match that saw the show the much needed composure needed to win the trophy. Batting first, they managed to get to 155 with the runs in the death overs coming to their rescue as the Kings fell short by only 6 runs in the end. It was a much needed win for the Patriots who had suffered a chastening 9 wicket defeat earlier.
DIN vs TUT Match Prediction
Dindigul Dragons have looked the best side by some distance and are deserving of all the plaudits that are pouring in for the side. They have been pinch perfect till now, not giving their opposition the slightest bit of breathing space with the batting and bowling departments both complimenting each other to perfection.
We see them emerge as clear winners in this fixture. It’s the bowling unit which stands out for them, one a dismal Patriots batting line-up will find tough to address.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Being an afternoon encounter, this surface will play better for the side batting first. In the earlier matches played on this surface, 150 proved to be a healthy enough score to get while batting first with the surface slowly down during the run chase.
Wicket-Keeper for DIN vs TUT Dream11
Narayan Jagadeesan is our pick for this one after his innings of 87 in the previous match against Madurai Panthers. It was a good inning from the wicket-keeper and with the Patriots having a bowling line-up which can be taken apart easily, he could easily get a good score today as well.
Batsmen for DIN vs TUT Dream11
Putting on that century stand with Jagadeesan on the day was C Hari Nisanth whose 57 runs saw the Dragons record a hefty score and ensure that their shaky middle-order wasn’t exposed in the match. He is the only player we have gone ahead with from the Dragons.
Coming in from TUTI Patriots is an entire trivalent of options with us compensating for the batting selections from their side in this segment only. Subramania Siva has scores of 28 and 44, being one of their best batsmen and he comes in alongside Akshay Srinivasan who scored 55 the last time around and then went onto follow it up with 33. If the Patriots are to show the stomach for a fight today and make this match a closely contested affair, these two will need to deliver for the side.
Completing our batting segment is Vasant Sarvanan.
All-Rounders for DIN vs TUT Dream11
Our combination for today sees us change from our usual style of playing the game as we bring in only the one player over here. There has been no other player from either side who has been able to justify his role with both the bat and ball and owing this predicament, we are bringing in only Ravichandran Ashwin from the Dragons.
He was the side’s top scorer in the first game and picked up 3-16 in the second and given his elevation in the batting ranks, he makes for a useful pick who’ll get ample chances to impress in both the facts.
Bowling Order for DIN vs TUT Dream11
For the first time in this edition of TNPL 4, we have gone in with 5 bowlers, a trio representing the Dragons while a dup makes an entry from TUTI Patriots. It sees us pick out all the frontline bowlers from either side with us banking heavily on the nature of the wicket and the Dragons incredible bowling unit to rope in a slew of points for us.
Coming in from the Dragons are M Silambarasan and M Mohammed. Silambarasan has been the side’s leading bowler, picking up 4-13 and 4-20 across the side’s opening two encounters and is bound to get wickets yet again against a Panther line-up which has faltered at crucial junctures.
Jagannathan Kaushik completes our picks from the firm favourite for today. The two man pick from the Patriots is of Athisayaraj Davidson and Dakshinamoorthy Kumaran.
Captain And Vice-Captain for DIN vs TUT Dream11
We are picking out Silambarasan as our captain for this match while Ashwin has been made the vice-captain.
