Dindigul Dragons Team News & Playing 11

DDD Team News

H Trilok Nag replaced Mohan Abhinav last time out, with Dindigul Dragons opting for an extra seamer at Tirunelveli compared to the team which started the tournament at Dindigul. That was the only change between the two wins, however.

DDD Key Players

Ravichandran Ashwin: Top-scored in the first game and then took 3-16 in the second, as well as captaining the Dragons to their two victories. Ashwin is one of only a small handful of Indian internationals on show in this tournament. 
M Silambarasan: Has out-shone his captain with his spin bowling so far. His 4-13 bowled the Dragons to victory in their opening game and he followed it up with an excellent 4-20 against the Madurai Panthers too.
Narayan Jagadeesan: Scored 12 fours and a six on his way to an unbeaten 87 from 51 balls last time out, including a century opening partnership. He might not be captain any more, but he still has an important role to play at the top of the order and behind the stumps.

M Silambarasan bowled Dindigul Dragons to victory in the first game, when they defended 115/9 against Chepauk Super Gillies. He took 4-13 as the Gillies were restricted to just 105/9. 
He was at it again last time out too, though the Dragons’ batting was much improved – Narayan Jagadeesan (87*) and C Hari Nishanth (57) sharing a century opening partnership in a total of 182/6. Silambarasan (4-20) and Ravi Ashwin (3-16) then spun Dindigul to victory as Madurai Panthers posted just 152/9

TUTI Patriots Team News & Playing 11

TP Team News

TUTI Patriots rang the changes after a dreadful opening performance. Five players made way, with Murugesan Kamlesh taking over as wicket-keeper. S Senthil Nathan opened the batting, while V Athisayaraj Davidson opened the bowling. They were rewarded with a six-run win and could stick with that same team, despite Senthil Nathan falling first ball. 

TP Key Players

Akshay Srinivasan: Scored 55 in the opening game before the batting collapse and then followed it up with 31 last time out. The 25-year-old showed flashes of what to expect with some good starts last year too.
Dakshinamoorthy Kumaran: The veteran medium-pacer took 2-18 last time out, keeping things tidy from end. His economy rate proved vital in the rain-reduced game.
V Subramania Siva: Scored 28 in the first game and followed that with a top score of 44 last time out. Along with Srinivasan, he has scored useful top-order runs and this time he was rewarded when the middle-order built on them.

TP Team Form

TUTI Patriots suffered a chastising defeat in their opening game, when they failed to build on the good start provided by Akshay Srinivasan’s 55. They posted just 124/8 and lost by nine wickets in just 12.1 overs.
After ringing the changes, however, they posted 155/5 against Lyca Kovai Kings last time out in a 13-over game. In reply, the Kovai Kings posted 149/7.

Dindigul Dragons vs TUTI Patriots Prediction

Dindigul Dragons have made a winning start to this tournament and can continue that with the likes of Jagadeesan, Ashwin and Silambarasan all in excellent form.
Final Verdict: Back Dindigul Dragons to beat TUTI Patriots.

DID vs TP Dream11 Prediction

While Wilkinson Victor was dropped for Murugesan Kamlesh for TUTI Patriots last time out, Narayan Jagadeesan is one of Dindigul Dragons’ key men. He top-scored last time out and is the best candidate for this team too.
TUTI Patriots have had two clear stand-out batsmen so far. Akshay Srinivasan scored a half-century in the first game and has shared two decent partnerships with captain Subramania Siva. Vasanth Saravan held the middle-order together, meanwhile. For the Dragons, Hari Nishanth and N Chaturved are useful options at the top of the order.
Tucked into that batting order, between Jagadeesan and Chaturved, is Ravichandran Ashwin. His batting is relied upon more than in bigger tournaments, while his bowling remains excellent.
M Silambarasan has been in outstanding form so far, with eight wickets in two matches. Jagannathan Kaushik is a good-value pick at 8.5 credits, meanwhile. Experienced Dakshinamoorthy Kumaran is one of the Patriots’ key bowlers, meanwhile. M Mohammed was man of the match in this match last year, meanwhile – batting and bowling well.
Ravichandran Ashwin will play a big part in this game, whether it is with the bat or the ball. Narayan Jagadeesan is in good batting form, while M Silambarasan’s bowling form is hard to ignore. Either would be good vice-captain picks.
