In the 13th game of TNPL 2019, Chepauk Super Gillies will be playing the Lyca Kovai Kings. After the disastrous season last year, the Gillies have turned things around quite nicely this time around. Out of the three games that the team played thus far, they won two and seem to be in good form. The team will like to get over the line as many times as possible in the remaining games.
The Lyca Kovai Kings, though, could be fatigued a bit as they will be playing games of cricket on back-to-back days. In less than 24 hours after playing the Ruby Trichy Warriors, they will up against another strong opposition. However, since they will get a small break after this game, the players should look to play with the same kind of intensity.
The 13th match of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2019 will be played between Chepauk Super Gillies and Lyca Kovai Kings 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.
