TN vs PUN Dream11 : Group C and Group B meet today as Punjab and Chhattisgarh meet each other in the third QF of the tournamnet.
Punjab were a side packed with worldclass names, players who know just what it takes to succeed at the highest level but the way they have plied their skill set this time around has been extremely impressive. The side have been a behemoth of a unit, a setup which has revelled us in a pristine brand of cricket this season of the Vijay Hazare Trophy.
It saw them befittingly finish in Elite Group B of the exhibition tournamnet to make their way into today’s upcoming quarter-final, a fixture where the side will be looking to emanate their same stupendous display. With 5 wins from 8 matches, the side ended up level on points with table toppers Delhi, ending behind them just by the smallest magnitude of net run-rate.
Ther previous display against Maharashtra was a scintillating one, tenacious display by their bowling order which saw them bundle out Maharashtra for just 65 runs before chasing it down with 6 wickets to spare. Elsewhere, Tamil Nadu ended up finishing in first place in Elite Group C, winning all 9 of their encounters in the group including a decider against Gujarat in their concluding clash.
The 78 run win over Gujarat on that day saw them defend their 274 runs to bundle out Gujarat for just 196, a win which saw them peg Gujarat to occupy first place. It was a performance which will see the side go at loggerhead with Punjab knowing they can pull off a win come today’s clash, making this encounter a riveting affair to immerse in.

The player has been in good form this edition of the tournamnet, something which has prompted him to go on and make a claim for his spot in next year’s T20 World Cup, seeing us opt for the wicket-keeper for this match.
TN vs PUN Dream11 Batsmen
With this encounter set to be maligned and marred by rain with inclement weather set to leave us in a turmoil, we are getting in the top-order players and clean hitters for the encounter for this clash. This sees us begin with Anmolpreet Singh from Punjab for this encounter along with Abhishek Sharma while from Tamil Nadu we have chosen Abhinav Mukund.
TN vs PUN Dream11 All-Rounders
With 192 runs in 6 matches, Punjab’s Gurkeerat Singh Mann is the first name to be opted by us in the facet. Karan Kaila comes in with the left hand spinner having picked up 13 wickets in 7 encounters and given the brand of bowling he doles out, he looks set to add to his tally come today as well.
Elsewhere form Tamil Nadu we have opted for Vijay Shankar with his escalated batting role and position where he gets adequate overs with the ball as well having seen him get 327 runs in 7 encounters.
TN vs PUN Dream11 Bowling Order
Rain means that the frontline spearhead pacers and slower bowlers will both get enough help to come out and stifle batsmen and engulf them in a treacherous impasse. It makes our bowling slot the most heavily packed one, choosing the four bowlers with three names coming into our side from Tamil Nadu.
We begin by getting in Murugan Ashwin who has taken 13 wickets in 8 matches with M Mohammed and T Natarajan coming in as well for us. Elsewhere, legspinner Mayank Markande also comes into our setup for this encounter from Punjab with his spin set to leave Tamil Nadu in a precarious and pernicious position given the immense turn he’ll get away from the right handers.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Anmolpreet is our side’s captain for today while Shankar is being made the vice-captain.
