RUB vs TUT Dream11 : TUTI Patriots look to break into the top 4 when they take on an agonising Ruby outfit.
With TUTI Patriots playing their final group stage encounter today, the match comes bearing with it massive ramifications for the side. Currently slumped in 6th place, the side know a massive win today can open up the slightest glimmer of chance of them making it to the top 4 if other results swing their way, a scenario which should see them come hot out of the blocks for this one.
After having slumped to two defeats on the bounce with the batting unit making for dismal viewing, TUTI Patriots managed to infuse some life into their campaign with a colossal 57 win against Kaalai. And the side will be looking to emulate that resounding performance against Ruby Trichy Warriors today as well as they look to continue with their ascendancy up the league standings.
Elsewhere for Ruby, this match is as inconsequential as they get. The side have failed to win a single match in the 2019 edition of Tamil Nadu Premier League, suffering an abject run of form which has seen them been trounced by teams. Inconsistency has been a major reason for the position they find themselves slumped in with the side going onto score 171 and 178 in the league along with 107 and 135 as well, a string of results which see them falling short in two super overs as well.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
This surface has gotten a rest of two days but we don’t see that massively impacting the playing conditions over here. This pitch has played out in the same manner in the night matches with the surface playing sluggishly, slow, low and making strokeplay a tough task.
This is a surface where the side winning the toss will come out and bat on without any hesitation with the spinners getting massive turn in the second part of the encounter.

While Ruby have ended up failing to open their points tally, the side have managed to string together some respectable batting performances. They managed to score 178 against table toppers Dindigul Dragons the last time around, a batting performance where they showed that they can manage to punch above their weight.
However with their bowling unit being extremely paper thin and the Patriots in massive need of two points today, we see Ruby picking up the pieces yet again. They should go onto lose this one and end their league without a win.

RUB vs TUT Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keepers for RUB vs TUT Dream11
Out of all the four options, there isn’t one who we would particularly like to indulge in with no player managing to come up with hefty run with the bat till now. K Mani Bharathi has been the best out of all the four choices, seeing us opt for Ruby’ wicket-keeper from a segment clearly devoid of good options.
Batsmen for RUB vs TUT Dream11
With 78, 81 and 99 in his last three matches, Ruby’s opener Murali Vijay is our first pick from the side in our side’s batting order. The second opener from the side, K Mukunth comes in as well for us with him scoring good runs ever since his involvement in the side’s playing 11.
TUTI Patriots’ opener Akshay Srinivasan has entered off massively across the last matches, failing to put on the scores he managed in the first two matches but he’s going to be up against a bowling unit which will accord him the opportunity to score big. This should augur well for the opener who comes into our side based on this narrative while with 87 in the last match, Subramania Siva also comes in from the side.
All-Rounders for RUB vs TUT Dream11
With 8 wickets in 5 matches and some runs as well, P Saravana Kumar from Ruby is our pick for this encounter. He is going to need to pick up wickets once again for his side against a TUTI Patriots batting unit which has depth in it and will be looking to put on a hefty score in today’s encounter.
Nidish Rajagopal is picked up by us from TUTI Patriots.
Bowling Order for RUB vs TUT Dream11
Continuing with the bowling picks from Ruby with this surface bound to heavily favour the bowlers, we are getting in with the 6 wickets Lakshminarayanan Vignesh and Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore. The two will come out in the death overs, a time when the Patriots will be looking to up the ante and this period should see Kishore in particular flourish with his left arm offspin making for tough navigation for the right handers.
From TUTI Patriots we are getting in the two bowlers as well with B Senthil Nathan and Dakshinamoorthy Kumaran picked up with him taking 7 wickets for his side till now.
Captain And Vice-Captain for RUB vs TUT Dream11
We are selecting Siva as our side’s captain while Vijay is the vice-captain.
