DID vs NRK Team Previews

Dindigul Dragons

The Dindigul Dragons were one of the most consistent teams during the Group Stage, losing just 1 of the 7 matches and finishing 2nd on the points table. However, they were a bit unlucky during Qualifier 1 as they lost out to the Lyca Kovai Kings by 30 runs. They now have a chance to redeem themselves and feature in the finals for the first time since the 2019 season.

Vimal Khumar and Shivam Singh make up for an excellent opening pair, where Shivam Singh in particular has been very impressive. He has scored 3 half-centuries so far and is the leading run-scorer for the Dragons this season. Baba Indrajith and Adithya Ganesh will be the key batsmen in the middle order as the likes of Boopathi Kumar and G Kishoor have struggled to score runs.

Sarath Kumar played a brilliant cameo of 62 runs in just 23 deliveries and will look to do the same here. Coming to the bowling, Subodh Bhati bowled an excellent spell in the last match, picking up 4 wickets, and is now the joint-highest wicket-taker in the tournament.

He will be looking for support from fellow speedsters Saravana Kumar and G Kishoor at the other end. Varun Chakaravarthy is the specialist spinner on the team and has picked up 12 wickets. He is also quite economical, giving away just 6.53 runs per over.

Nellai Royal Kings

The Nellai Royal Kings played well during the group stages to finish third on the points table. They faced the Siechem Madurai Panthers in an Eliminator, where they won by 4 runs in a high-scoring encounter. They will now look to build up on that winning momentum and defeat the Dindigul Dragons.

Arun Karthik and L Suryaprakash will hope to give the team a good start here. Arun Karthik has played a couple of good knocks so far but has lacked consistency. A lot will depend on his performance if the Royal Kings want a solid start.

Suryaprakash hasn’t been able to get going yet and will need to get back in form here. Ajitesh Guruswamy and Nidhish Rajagopal slammed individual half-centuries in the Eliminator and set the stage for putting up a huge target. Ajitesh has been in particularly good form and is the highest scorer for the team so far.

Rithik Easwaran and all-rounder Sonu Yadav add depth to the batting. Yadav has done well with the ball too, picking up 7 wickets. He will feature in the pace attack along with Sandeep Warrier and M Poiyamozhi. The latter has done an excellent job with the new ball and is the leading wicket-taker for the team.

Lakshay Jain and Mohan Prasath have done a decent job with the spin, picking up 13 wickets between them.
