The VB Kanchi Veerans have got a wonderful opportunity to make it into the knockouts as they gear up for their last league game. They were displaced from the fourth position by the Lyca Kovai Kings who won their last league game quite comprehensively. However, it is the Veerans who have got an upper hand in terms of the Net Run Rate. All that they need to do is defeat the Ruby Trichy Warriors at all costs.
The Warriors have had a torrid time in the TNPL 2019. They lost five games in a row and it was especially disheartening because two of these matches even went into the super over. But, the side managed to get the better of the TUTI Patriots in their previous game. The question, however, still remains if they could be the party-spoilers for the VB Kanchi Veerans.
The 28th match of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2019 will be played between VB Kanchi Veerans and Ruby Trichy Warriors at the Indian Cement Company Ground, Tirunelveli.
The match starts at 7:15 PM local time (IST) (1:45 PM GMT).
This game will be live on Star Sports and live streaming is available on Hotstar.
The track at Tirunelveli has been quite contrary to the one in Dindigul. Runs are hard to come by at this venue and it will really test the batsmen. They will need to apply themselves really well and shouldn’t get carried away in an attempt to get a huge score.
Average first innings score: 147.6 (Last five games at Tirunelveli – till Match 21)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 3, Tie – 0, Lost – 2
It will be a cloudy day with humidity on the higher side. The temperature is about 27C throughout the game. With the new ball, the bowlers will be able to swing the ball quite a bit early on.
