NPR College Ground Dindigul weather conditions: What is the weather forecast of TNPL 2019 opening match between DGD and CSG?
The fourth season of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2019 is all set to commence on Friday. The opening encounter will be played between Dindigul Dragons and Chepauk Super Gillies at the NPR College Ground in Dindigul.
Last season runner-ups Dindigul Dragons will face the Super Gillies, who had a pretty underwhelming season as they finished right at the bottom of the points table with only one win under their belt in seven league matches.
However apart from the expected mouth-watering clash between the two sides, the fans and experts are also concerned about the possibility of rain playing spoilsport in the opening match itself

In what might come as a good news for the fans is that there are no chances of rain playing spoilsport in the opening encounter which is about to be played at the NPR College Ground in Dindigul at 7:15 pm IST.
The chances of rain during the match hours ranges between 14% to 19%. Thus, even if it rains, there won’t be any possible delay or reduction in the number of overs.
The weather throughout the day will remain cloudy and very warm though.

With Vijay Shankar yet to recover from a toe injury that saw him being sent back from India’s 15 man squad at the World Cup after being hit by a Jasprit Bumrah delivery in the side’s practice session, Kaushik Gandhi will be captaining the Super Gilles. And he’ll be looking to build on the 2-1 lead which the Super Gilles hold over Dragons in the league when the two sides take to the middle today.
The Dindigul Dragons will be lead by India’s premier off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.
