DID vs SMS Match Prediction - Jul 03, 2023

In the 26th game of the Tamil Nadu Premier League competition underway at the moment in the Tamil Nadu state of India, Salem Spartans will take on Dindigul Dragons tomorrow. Read on for the pitch report, weather report, betting tips, and match prediction for this crucial contest. This encounter will be played at the Indian Cement Company Ground in Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu, India. The Dindigul Dragons will be vying to maintain their place in the points table at number two with an easy victory here. The Dindigul team led by Baba Indrajith has won 5 out of their 6 encounters this season and looked good at all the venues they played on this season.

The Salem Spartans on the other hand is lying near the bottom of the points table in the second last position. However, they won their last contest played at this venue against Tiruppur Tamizhans while defending a below-par score. This victory came after the team had to endure 3 successive losses in the league stages of the competition. Although the Salem Spartans are still in the race for a place in the playoffs, a victory in this match alone will not be enough to take them into the top 4 teams. They also need to improve their batting performance from the last game.

Although Maan Bafna and Kaushik Gandhi did not do too well in the middle order, another batter viz. Sunny Sandhu appeared to be promising and also hit a 50 in their last match. The Dindigul Dragons batters on the other hand are in great touch. During their last couple of games, they chased down the totals of 160 runs and 174 runs. But before their last victory, their bowlers were not in good form.

DID vs SMS Team Previews

Dindigul Dragons

The Dindigul batsman Shivam Singh hit a 3rd consecutive fifty which led the Dindigul Dragons to a 5th victory of the 2023 season in the last game. This match played at the Tirunelveli ground saw the Dindigul Dragons chase down 160 runs to record a victory. During the chase, it was his opening partner Vimal Kumar who joined the party as well. The two of them put together a 117-run stand with Vimal Kumar also hitting a half-century.<br /> During their last victory, Adithya Ganesh who was batting at number four position supported Shivam Sing with an unbeaten partnership of 105 runs for the third wicket. In this game, Dindigul Dragons succeeded in chasing down 174 runs.

The Dindigul Dragons captain Baba Indrajith will be pleased with the way things have turned out for his team and their batting form. The two batting performances mentioned above came soon after the Dindigul Dragons suffered a batting collapse against Lyca Kovai Kings. R Ashwin was excused from the team after that toss and the leadership of the team was handed over to Baba Indrajith. Some of the key bowlers playing in the team are R Aushik, Sarvanan, and Varun Chakravarthy. However, none of these bowlers have been too consistent.

The Dindigul bowling department in the last game was led by Mathivanan and Subodh Bhati who picked up a couple of wickets each. Chakravarthy also bowled well in the game and returned with economical figures of 1 for 15. The Dragons team management will be looking for more consistency from their bowlers and getting them to deliver as a unit. It will be a great opportunity for the batsmen playing in the middle order to find their rhythm and also have some runs under their belt before the playoffs.

Salem Spartans

The Salem Spartans team has succeeded in winning 2 out of their last 6 games thus far. At a maximum, they will end up with six points in case they defeat Dindigul Dragons in this contest. But looking at their current form, it appears unlikely that they will manage to get an upper hand in this matchup against a side on a roll. Only one fifty has materialized from their last 3 matches and it came from Sunny Sandhu. The remaining batting order has been found struggling to make any sort of impact on the opposition.

During the loss in their last match against Kovai Kings, Sandhu hit 29 runs from 19 balls while playing at the number 6 position. He was also the leading run-getter for the side. Salem was easily bowled out for a score of 120 runs while chasing a target of 200 runs. In a match before that the Salem Spartans were bowled out for a score of 98 runs while batting first. The opening pair for the game was changed many times in the recent games and none of it worked out for the Salem Spartans.

Many batters such as Amith Sathvik, Kaushik Gandhi, Akash Sumra, RS Mokit Hariharan, and S Arvind have all tried their hand at opening the innings in their last 3 outings for Salem. None of them have managed to find success while opening the innings. S Abhishek, Adnan Khan, and Maan Bafna are some of the key players playing in the middle and lower middle order. Although many of these players have not been in great form in the competition, they must try their best to support the in-form player Sunny Sandhu and take the Salem team to a good total.

DID vs SMS Toss Prediction

The Dindigul Dragons are enjoying a good run of form at the moment, especially with the bat. The Salem Spartans on the hand do not have the same reliable players for building partnerships and finishing the innings for the team. The Dragons might consider bowling first as they have the reliable batters to win the game chasing. The Salem Spartans will rather look to back their bowlers to get them a win in this match. So, they are likely to bat first and defend a total.

Pitch and Conditions

The venue for this game is India Cement Company Ground in Tirunelveli. Both these outfits have played a single match at this ground and have recorded wins. The average first innings total at the venue is 152 runs while we imagine a score in the region of 170 runs or more will be a match-winning score for a side batting first.

There is a possibility of passing thunderstorms during the match, especially at the start of the contest. However, we expect that we will get the entire 40 overs for the match. The relative humidity for the game is likely to be high and the temperatures during the game are likely to be close to high 20s.


DID vs SMS Betting Tips

The Salem Spartans succeeded in delivering a solid performance in their last encounter and the Dragons management would have seen that. Dragons are in the number 2 position and it is not for nothing. Their batsmen are in good touch and the team can depend on them for consistency. The Dragons bowling has managed to bounce back and Baba Aparajith will be expecting them to carry forward the momentum into this match. But looking at the current form of these two teams, it is pretty clear that the Dragons are the favorites to win this contest. We will bet with Dindigul Dragons to win the game.
