Lyca Kovai Kings

Lyca Kovai Kings are going into playoffs with a lot of confidence after winning the last must-win match against Nellai Royal Kings. The Kings were under a lot of pressure in the last match as they were coming off two back-to-back losses but their captain Shahrukh Khan’s fireworks in death overs helped them to get over the line.

Lyca Kovai Kings are batting heavy side with both openers leading the top run scorer chart in the tournament. Shahrukh Khan was supposed to be their main batsman in the tournament but after a slow start to the tournament, he has come back to his brutal groove in the last couple of matches. He smashed 64 runs including 5 gigantic sixes. Kings are up against Dindigul Dragons, who had beaten them in their last encounter on the group stage. Let’s see if they can give the final knockout punch in Eliminator.

Top Batsmen 

  • B Sai Sudharsan– 301 runs at 144.01 strike rate 
  • V Ganga Sridhar Raju– 280  runs at a 145.83 strike rate 

Top Bowler 

  • Abhishek Tanwar- 8 wickets at 7.95 economy
  • R Divakar– 7 wickets at 7.73  economy

Dindigul Dragons

Dindigul Dragons had an incredible start to the tournament and at one stage, they were on the way to finish top 2 but bad mid-season form nearly derailed their train. The last match was do or die for them against IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans, and they won that contest to secure their place in the playoffs.

Dindigul Dragons are up against Lyca Kovai Kings, whom they had beaten in the group stage with a record run chase. Dindigul Dragons are a balanced side but they heavily rely on Rangaraj Suthesh who is the tournament’s highest wicket-taker with 11 wickets. Hari Nishanth is leading this team and has been instrumental with bat and is the tournament’s 3rd highest run scorer. 

Top Batsmen

  • Hari Nishanth– 253 runs at 133.86 strike rate 
  • Mani Bharathi – 186  runs at a 143.07 strike rate

Top Bowler 

  • Rangaraj Suthesh – 11 wicket at 6.52 economy
  • Swaminathan- 4 wickets at 6.42 economy

Pitch Report

MA Chidambaram pitch was a bit more batting-friendly at the start of the tournament but as the tournament has progressed, the pitch has now slowed down. Spinners play a vital role as usual but still, pitches are good enough to score runs. 150 is par total on this pitch. Cutters for seamers will be the best option in death overs. Captain might look to field first as sometimes in the tournament pitch has played better in 2nd innings.

DD vs LKK– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

Lyca Kovai Kings expected to win the match against Dindigul Dragons 

KhelTalk experts feel that Lyca Kovai Kings will win against Dindigul Dragons. Lyca Kovai Kings is a more balanced side as compared to Dindigul Dragons. Although they finished behind Dindigul Dragons, they had many match-winners. There both openers are top scorers of the tournament and finally, Shahrukh Khan is looking in best touch. On the other hand, Dindigul Dragons are a good bowling side but are struggling in the batting department as they heavily depend on captain Hari Nishanth. It will be an interesting contest but we expect Lyca Kovai Kings to beat Dindigul Dragons.

Top Batsman from Dindigul Dragons – Hari Nishanth 

Hari Nishanth is the tournament’s 3rd highest run-scorer and is also leading this Dindigul side. He has been super consistent for them throughout the tournament and will be looking to give a strong performance in the most important Eliminator match. In his last meeting against Lyca Kovai Kings, he scored thundering 70 runs off 37 balls to win the match for Dindigul Dragons and again expectations will be on his shoulders to get Dindigul Dragons over the line against Kings.

Top Batsman from Lyca Kovai Kings– Sai Sudharsan  

Sai Sudharsan is having a dream TNPL season so far. He is the tournament’s highest run-scorer with 301 runs. The left-handed opening batsman is not flamboyant and is more of an old-schooled technical player. He averages 60 in the tournament and holds one end for Lyca Kovai Kings to give freedom to other batsmen like Ganga and Shahrukh Khan to explode. He had a terrific tournament personally but would want to take the Lyca team to the trophy as well with his batting. He is our pick for best batsman from Lyca Kovai Kings.

Top Bowler from Lyca Kovai Kings – Abhishek Tanwar

Abhishek Tanwar is a right-arm medium bowler from Saurashtra. He has picked 8 wickets so far in the tournament and has been the leader of the pack in the bowling department. Although he has been expensive a bit but is good in death overs. Lyca Kovai Kings have struggled in the bowling department and ever since Abhishek Tanwar has arrived, he has changed fortunes for Lyca Kovai Kings in the bowling department. He is our pick for best bowler from Lyca Kovai Kings.

Top Bowler from Dindigul Dragons – Rangaraj Suthesh 

Rangaraj Suthesh is the tournament’s highest wicket-taker. The left-arm medium bowler has been an integral part of the Dindigul team over the years and is having a dream season. He had picked 11 wickets at a mere economy of 6.5, he bowls the most crucial overs for Dindigul but still is their most economical bowler. The 34-year-old veteran uses his experience to perfection and is a really tough customer to hit in death overs. Rangaraj Suthesh is a very tough bowler on slowish pitches like Chennai and will give you good returns. He is our pick for best bowler from Dindigul Dragons
