Led by S Badrinath Karaikudi Kaalai have lost their both first and second game by 5 wickets and 67 runs respectively which is certainly doesn’t look good for team’s morale. They need to pull up their socks and perform in all departments of cricket if they are looking for first win of inaugural season of Tamil Nadu Premier League.
Karaikudi Kaalai’s opening match was taken away single-handed by Baba Aprajith who presented a fabulous show smashing brilliant century but in second game situation worsened for Kaalai because neither bowlers nor batsman looked competitive against Chepauk Super Gilles. While bowling first, allowed opposition to post 195 run and during the chase they folded to just 128 runs in 18th over.
S Badrinath’s men have lost both their games by big margin so it raises a lot of questions which needs to be answered quickly before time runs out. In first match, they lost to VB Thiruvallur Veerans by 5 wicket while in second game on 28 August another defeat came against Chepauk Super Gilles by 67 runs.
On the other hand, Dinesh Karthik regular captain of TUTI Patriots is not expected to play but all players from 19-man squad are available to be picked. They have loss and win each out of two games played in TNPL 2016 and enter this fixture after suffering huge loss at the hand of Lyca Kovai Kings by 9 wickets.
TUTI Patriots were folded down to 95 runs, special thanks to Washington Sundar who scored 48-balls 43 which helped them reach around three figure mark. Maaruthi Raghav and Umashankar Sushil contributed 12 runs each but it was not enough to restrict Kovai Kings from victory.
