LYC vs RUB Dream11 : Lyca Kovai Kings look to comeback from an extremely close defeat in the previous encounter when they take on winless Ruby in the second of today’s matches
For Ruby Trichy Warriors, this edition of the Tamil Nadu Premier League couldn’t have gotten off to a worse start. They managed to take their encounter against Kaalai to a super over in their opening fixture in the league after both sides scored 171 but failed to defend the average 10 runs they managed in the decider, following it up with another defeat in the ensuing match.
And with their heavy doubts of Murali Vijay’s availability for this match, Ruby’s batting line-up has further unravelled. It leaves the side who find themselves languishing right in the bottom places of the league standings in a precarious position when they take on a clearly superior Lyca Kovai Kings outfit today.
After having defeated Veerans comfortably in their opening fixture, Kings fell short by the barest of margins against TUTI Patriots in a rain curtailed encounter. With the match brought down to 13 overs, Kings saw their pursuit of Patriots 155 fall end up short by just the 6 runs after the side ended their chase at 149. They’ll be looking to comeback from that result today when they face off against a side who are struggling to come to terms with the side.
We are clearly siding with Kings for this fixture with the side being a complete one. The unit is a perfect encapsulation of batting and bowlers extradonaire, they should dominate today’s encounter against Ruby who have failed to intertwine the two departments of their side. With the surface expected to a little tricky, expect Kings to emerge out of this one with a win.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
We have had some high scoring fixtures being doled out over here especially in the night with the average score while batting first being 155. The side winning the toss will be clearly looking to bat first with the surface laying low in the second part of the encounter.

Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keepers for LYC vs RUB Dream11
K Mani Bharathi is the only viable option in this segment. Although he hasn’t performed too well either, the rest of the options for us in this segment have failed massively and this sees us go ahead with the man with gloves from Ruby.
Batsmen for LYC vs RUB Dream11
The Kings saw their openers Abhinav Mukund and Shahrukh Khan register a strong partnership in their opening match, one that saw Mukund score 70 in 44 balls to see the Kings register a profound 8 wicket win.
They both are coming into our side for this one with B Anirudh Sita Ram as well while from Ruby our first pick is of S Aravind with Murali unlikely to play in this encounter as well. Aravind should continue to play in the opening slot and with Vijay out, the side will be relying heavily on him to come up with important runs today. Saravana Kumar also comes in from the side with him emerging as the best batsman from the side over the last two matches, someone who has come up with important runs for his team.
If Murali Vijay is named in the side after the toss, we will be coming into our side to make it a 6 man batting playing 11 for us.
All-Rounders for LYC vs RUB Dream11
We are picking out only one player in this department with Lakshminarayanan Vignesh being our pick for this one. He looks the only ideal player from Ruby who can contribute with both the bat and ball and is picked up by us for this match.
Bowling Order for LYC vs RUB Dream11
One of the biggest reasons for the Kings’ emphatic showings till now has been their bowling selections from the Kings. T Natarajan, S Manigandan and Krishnamoorthy Vignesh have been in destructible form with Natarajan the leading wicket taker for the side across the two matches.
He and Manigandan come in from the side while from Ruby we have opted for their highest wicket taker, Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Shahrukh Khan is selected as our captain for this match while we are going ahead with the Kings second opener, Mukund as the vice-captain.
