After the impressive win against the TUTI Patriots in the first game, the Madurai Panthers faltered in their second match. Against the Dindigul Dragons, they fell short of the target by 30 runs while chasing. Thus, the team has got two points to its tally at the end of two games. They will be taking on the VB Kanchi Veerans on Sunday and will want to add a few more points to their tally.
However, the Veerans will be massively high on confidence after the performance they put up in the previous match. They registered the third biggest victory in terms of runs in the history of TNPL when they defeated Karaikudi Kaalai by 110 runs. The Baba Aparajith-led team will look for another win of that sorts to yet again assert their dominance in the tournament.
