The points table of the Tamil Nadu Premier League is getting further more complicated with sides struggling hard to sneak a place in the final four. The Chepauk Super Gillies occupied the top spot on the table temporarily thanks to their sensational win against the Veerans and are almost assured of a place in the semifinals.
The Madurai Panthers boosted their hopes of reaching the semifinals with a much-needed win. Arun Karthik continued his purple patch with his maiden TNPL ton, which saw them post a mammoth total against Lyca. They currently have six points to their tally and one win in their remaining two games could put them in a very commanding position.
The 21st match of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2019 will be played between Chepauk Super Gillies 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.
Teams batting second have not found a lot of success on this ground right from the outset. It has been slowing up in the second innings, making life difficult for the batters. Toss will be a crucial factor in the game.
