TN vs MUM Dream11 : Group D table toppers Mumbai get ready to make a foray into the dramatic land of the Super League stage today
The 2019/20 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy has reached the business end and it will be contenders Mumbai and Tamil Nadu who will fight it out in the Super League match of the competition. The match is expected to be a nail-biting one given the fact that there are several international cricketers in either team. Hence we should be expecting a tough contest tomorrow. It will be the first super league match for Mumbai while it will be 2nd for Tamil Nadu.
Mumbai have played some exceptional cricket in the tournament barring a shock loss at the hands of Meghalaya. They finished the league stage with 24 points in 7 matches despite their unexpected defeat against Meghalaya. On the other hand, Tamil Nadu lost their only Superleague match so far against Karnataka and will look to get back to winning ways.
Match Conditions and Toss

TN vs MUM Dream 11 Wicket-keeper
The one and only pick in this segment will be Aditya Tare. The wicket-keeper batsman doesn’t need any introduction, especially in the domestic arena. He has been a prolific run-scorer for Mumbai over the years and also opens the batting for them. He has been in impressive form in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and will look to continue his good run tomorrow.
TN vs MUM Dream 11 Batsmen
Prithvi Shaw will be our first pick in this segment. Shaw made his return to the domestic fold after being in suspension for 6 months. He roared back to form with a brilliant 63 of 39 deliveries against Assam and made a gesture towards the dressing room that his bat will only do the talking from now on.
Shreyas Iyer, Mumbai’s skipper will be our 2nd pick in this segment. He has been in superb form in the recent past. Iyer was in great shape and was one of the best batters for India during the recently concluded T20I series against Bangladesh.
Suryakumar Yadav is another pick in this segment given his exceptional run in T20I form off late. In the last two years, Suryakumar has been a prolific run-scorer for Mumbai Indians in the IPL which has also forced them to retain him for the next edition. He has been in good form in this tournament as well.
4Th pick in this segment will be Shah Rukh Khan who has done a great job for Tamil Nadu in this competition so far. He has scored briskly and has provided the solidity in the middle order.
Our last pick in this segment will be Hari Nishanth. The youngster was in good form during the Karnataka Premier League. He hasn’t been in the best of touches in the tournament so far but did score a stroke-filled 72 against Services earlier in the competition.
TN vs MUM Dream 11 All-rounders
Shivam Dube broke into the international circuit not long ago and has already been a name for himself. He bowled a match-winning spell against Bangladesh in the deciding T20I very recently. He is also a clean striker of the ball and had recently smashed Pravin Tambe for 5 sixes in an over.
Washington Sundar will be the last pick in this segment. He has already become a permanent member of the Indian T20I squad. Sundar is a multi-dimensional player who can bowl in the powerplay and can also chip with crucial overs in the middle. He is also a powerful striker of the ball which he showed during the T20I series against Bangladesh.
TN vs MUM Dream 11 Bowlers
Dhawal Kulkarni will be the first pick in this segment given his experience of playing for Mumbai for a long time. He is someone who can swing the ball both ways and is a wicket-taker, especially during the powerplay overs. Kulkarni can also be used as a death overs bowler.
2nd pick in this segment will be Shardul Thakur who has been a prolific wicket-taker for Mumbai over the years. It was on the back of his exceptional domestic performances that Thakur got a chance to don the national colours. He hasn’t settled in the international fold yet but he will be an important bowler for Mumbai in tomorrow’s big clash against Tamil Nadu.
G Periyaswamy will be the last pick in this segment. He has been a wicket-taker for Tamil Nadu and also impressed all and sundry during the Karnataka Premier League.
