MAD vs TUT Dream11 Team and Match Prediction : Reigning champions Madurai Panthers take on TUTI Patriots in a high octane clash today
We’ve had to wait for three matches to get our first high profile match in the fourth season of the Tamil Nadu Premier League but Saturday evening’s clash couldn’t get any more colossal in nature. Taking on TUTI Patriots will be Madurai Panthers, a side that had gone onto lift their first ever title in 2018 after massively overhauling their team.
After seeing their 2017 season unravel with the side failing to win even one of the 6 matches they took to the middle in, their win in 2018 surprised their arduous supporters as much as it did the rest of the sides partaking in the league. It was an unprecedented title for a side which had till previously failed to even make it to the top 4 of the league.
What had seen the side flourish and serve them so fruitfully was the attacking brand of cricket the side reverted to with the batsmen coming hot off the blocks right from ball one. It had taken the side to some staggering totals, helping them go on a winning spree to form the framework of their consummate.
In today’s opponents, Madurai Panthers know their start to TNPL 2019 isn’t the easiest of the lot. They are squaring off against one of the most consistent team in the league, a side that finished in second place in 2017 before just about missing out on a qualifier spot in 2018 by the barest of straws. TUTI Patriots will be looking to make it to the top 4 this season once again and there could be no better to once again stamp their credentials for the glistening trophy than a win against the current champions today.
TUTI Patriots vs Madurai Panthers Match Prediction
Given that this will be the second match played on the day on this surface, expect the surface too get sluggish and slower as play eventually progresses on it. Paired with the fact that the side batting second has only won 2 of the 6 encounters held here in the evening, toss could end up playing a decisive factor in this encounter.
For us, TUTI Patriots should win this one given the immense know how in a side filled with experienced performers who have persistently helped take the side on a consistent run of results.
Wicket-Keeper for MAD vs TUT Dream11
Murugesan Kamlesh from TUTI Patriots is opted by us not only due to his ability to score runs but the fact that we see Madurai Panthers losing a slew of wickets in this one. It will increase the involvement of Kamlesh to come up with the catches and stumpings and bring in vital points to our side.
Batsmen for MAD vs TUT Dream11
It’s a trio that comes in from Madurai Panthers after the batting line-up laid down the sublime and illustrious foundation of compelling success for the side. The three in unison intertwined together on countless occasions to stitch together vital, quick scoring partnerships for the side and if the Panthers are to stand tall in this fixture, plenty will depend on these bats.
The trivalent from the side included Arun Karthik, Thalavan Sargunam and Shijit Chandran. Meanwhile we have the lone pick from TUTI Patriots in the form of SP Nathan being included into our side.
All-Rounders for MAD vs TUT Dream11
The three man all-rounders segment sees us opt for a two man partnership from Madurai Panthers by us brining in both Rahil Shah and Karthikeyan R into our setup. Shah in particular is a stalwart of the side, a name who has over the course of their stay come up with flawless performances to outrightly guide his side to momentous success.
The segment is wrapped up Wilkins Victor form the TUTI Patriots with Washington Sundar out of this one due to his current involvement with the India A side who are engaged in a five match ODI series with West Indies A.
