Yet another interesting contest in the TNPL 2019 awaits to treat the fans. Thus far, the league has produced some great games of cricket. For the 16th game of the tournament, it will be the Ruby Trichy Warriors who will play the Madurai Panthers. Both these teams are in desperate need for a win and there hasn’t been much success for them so far.
While the Warriors lost all the three games that they played, the Madurai Panthers didn’t taste success after they won their first game of the season against the TUTI Patriots. Things are getting quite intense at the moment and the competition for the top four spots in increasing. It won’t be an easy task for either of these teams to reach the knockouts and they’ll need something miraculous from here on.
The 16th match of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2019 will be played between Ruby Trichy Warriors and Madurai Panthers at the NPR College Ground, Dindigul.
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.
The track in Dindigul hasn’t been a high scoring one this season. Runs have been hard to come by and the average first innings score indicates the same. The toss shouldn’t have a huge impact on the result of the game.
Average first innings score: 142 (4 unaffected night matches in TNPL 2019)
