Match 6 of the ongoing Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) will see Ruby Trichy Warriors and Chepauk Super Gillies fight it out in Tirunelveli. Both the sides suffered defeats in their respective previous matches and would be eager to get off the mark in terms of wins as soon as possible. The Super Gillies managed to win only a solitary match last season and they can’t afford a similar kind of start this year as well.
They were undone by the Dindigul Dragons in the tournament opener and will be aiming to get their campaign back on track. Trichy Warriors were involved in a thriller, on the other hand, against Karaikudi Kaalai as the match was tied. But they lost in the super over as the skipper Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore couldn’t defend 10 runs.
The 6th match of the Tamil Nadu Premier League 2019 will be played between Ruby Trichy Warriors vs Chepauk Super Gillies 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.
The same pitch used on Monday might be again in action for this match. In that case, the surface is expected to slow down and the spinners are likely to have fun bowling. The team winning the toss might chose to bat first and put runs on the board.
