LYC vs TUT Dream11 Team Picks and Probable Playing 11 : TUTI Patriots look to win their first game of the season while Kings look to make it two wins on the bounce.
For TUTI Patriots, the opening match of Tamil Nadu Premier League 4 was a horrendous one. Playing against last season’s winners Madurai Panthers, the Patriots put in a crumbling display with the bat, one which saw them being subsequently cleaned apart by 9 wickets.
Batting on a new and pristine pitch, the mere 124 TUT Patriots scrambled together despite a half-century from Srinivasan made for horrid showing. The side had no one but themselves to blame for their debacle with the bowling department failing to make things jittery for the side either with the opening partnership for the Panthers sufficient enough to take them to a win.
Elsewhere as embarrassing the defeat was for the Patriots, for Lyca Kovai Kings, their opening encounter saw them register a completely opposing result. Chasing the 150 set to them by Kanchi Veerans, Abhinav Mukund and Shahrukh Khan’s opening stand notched up a hefty score of 84 in 7 overs with the Veerans’ bowling unit failing to make a mark.
Taking on each other today, Kings look way the better side out of these outfits. Patriots are still without Wahington Sundar who is currently with the India A side in West Indies and having been selected in India’s team for the T20 series against West Indies, his availability for the Patriots this season looks doubtful. Given the composition of the outfits, the Kings look likely to register their second straight win here.
TUTI Patriots vs Lyca Kovai Kings Match Prediction
With this surface having played extremely sluggishly and slow and this being the second encounter in as many days here, expect the runs to be hard to come by. The ball will stay low and stop before coming onto the bat, something which should serve the Kings judiciously.
It’s the better batting side which is going to win this and it’s this script which tilts the balance in the Kings favour. They are going to easily score more runs than the Patriots, something which should see them cruise to a win in this match.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Heavy emphasis was laid on the prevalent playing conditions and the state of the pitch along with how the toss would affect either side. Our picks were based on recent performances and figures and considering how sides and players traditionally function in different circumstances.
Batsmen were selected based on their ability to make the most of the powerplay overs, hold fort in the middle overs and up the ante in the death overs along with those who flourish while imbedding successful run chases. The same applied to bowlers as well based off an in-depth analysis of the pitch conditions and bowlers who have a penchant to pick up wickets at regular intervals.
Wicket-Keeper for LYC vs TUT Dream11
Wilkins Victor from TUTI Patriots is our pick for this encounter with him bound to come out and get a good amount of overs in the middle.
Batsmen for LYC vs TUT Dream11
With 70 runs in 44 balls, Abhinav Mukund along with Shahrukh Khan put on an 84 run stand for the opening wicket in 7 overs, brushing apart the Veerans with stellar ease. Shahrukh Khan has been extremely consistent as well with 325 runs in 9 innings, one that include 3 50s with the opener making the most of the powerplay overs.
After emerging as the sole performer for his side in the previous match, waging a lone battle despite wickets tumbling at the other end, Akshay Srinivasan is our pick from TUTI Patriots. We are also bringing in Subramania Siva from the side.
All-Rounders for LYC vs TUT Dream11
The two players come into this facet with the one player coming into our side from either team. From the Kings we have picked up Malolan Rangarajan while coming in from TUTI Patriots is Shubham Mehta. Mehta in particular is going to play a key role for his side, a player who the team banks on massively to deliver in both the departments.
Bowling Order for LYC vs TUT Dream11
We are going in with a trivalent of picks from the Kings here especially after they bundled out the Veerans for a paltry 150 in the previous encounter. T Natarajan, S Manigandan and Krishnamoorthy Vignesh makes for a formidable trio and given the bowler conducive conditions we are bound to be blessed with, these three should end up snaring up the majority of wickets.
