The Lyca Kovai Kings suffered a massive heartbreak in the last game against the TUTI Patriots. They were so close to a win, yet, ended up being so far. In a match that was reduced to 13 overs per side, the Kings fell short of the target by a mere 6 runs. Even though they lost this match, their NRR is still quite high and the side will look to capitalise on that.
As they face the Ruby Trichy Warriors in the upcoming encounter, the Kovai Kings will look to get back on track with a victory. The Warriors haven’t had the kind of season they’d have hoped for thus far. The team lost both the games and is languishing at the bottom of the points table. Gaining the momentum back and getting to the winning ways will be a tough ask for them and they’ll need to come up with an inspirational performance.
The 11th match of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2019 will be played between Lyca Kovai Kings 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.
Tirunelveli has produced some absolute belters thus far in the tournament. The team batting first is likely to have a huge advantage as it seemingly gets tough later in the game. Another high-scoring game in on the cards.
