It might seem as if it has been an eternity since the Dindigul Dragons have taken the field. But they will be back taking on the TUTI Patriots on Saturday after a four-day break. The last time the Dragons played a game in the TNPL 2019, they defeated the Madurai Panthers by a decent margin of 30 runs. N Jagadeesan was the star in that game and scored an unbeaten 87.
With two consecutive wins under their belt already, the Dragons will fancy a hat-trick. However, they’ll have to be careful against the TUTI Patriots who registered a terrific win just a day ago. In a shortened game against the Lyca Kovai Kings, they held onto their nerve and got over the line by a margin of 6 runs. They will look to keep the momentum going forward and get a few more wins under their belt.
The 10th match of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2019 will be played between Dindigul Dragons and TUTI Patriots at the Indian Cement Company Ground, Tirunelveli.
The match starts at 3:15 PM local time (IST) (9:45 AM GMT).
This game will be live on Star Sports and live streaming is available on Hotstar.
The track at Tirunelveli seems to be an extremely good one to bat on. The ball comes on nicely and the pitch assists stroke-makers. So, the batsmen can go through their shots quite comfortably.
