One of the hottest properties in the Tamil Nadu Premier League right now, the Dindigul Dragons will be on home turf once again in a bid to extend their unbeaten streak. The side has been doing a fabulous job in every department thus far and their 10-wicket authoritative win in the previous game was a testament to how brilliant they’ve been.
The Trichy Warriors lost in a super over to Madurai in their previous fixture and are yet to register a point in the tournament. They lost all of their four games and are in a critical situation in the points table. A defeat here could end their aspirations once and for all this edition and it’d be an understatement to say their lives are at stake.
The 20th match of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2019 will be played between Dindigul Dragons and Ruby Trichy Warriors at the NPR College Ground, Dindigul.
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.
Teams batting first have found it very comfortable in the middle when compared to the ones batting second on Friday. If the same pattern is to follow on Saturday, it could be another tough day for the sides chasing.
