LKK vs DID Team Previews

Lyca Kovai Kings

This is the second consecutive time that the Lyca Kovai Kings have made it to the playoffs. In the last season, despite finishing 4th on the table, they made it to the finals and shared the title with the Chepauk Super Gillies. They put up an even better performance this time in the group stage and finished at the top of the table.

Sai Sudharsan has batted extremely well for the Kovai Kings and is the top-scorer of the tournament with 371 runs. He will once again be the key player for the team in the middle order. S Sujay and Suresh Kumar have done a good job at the top of the order and will hope to give the team a brisk start here.

B Sachin and Ram Aravindh will add strength to the middle order. Shahrukh Khan slammed a half-century in the last match, displaying his all-round abo. He is the joint-highest wicket-taker for the tournament with 13 wickets and will lead the spin attack along with M Siddharth, who has 10 wickets against his name.

K Gowtham and V Yudheeswaran will lead the pace attack along with M Mohammed.

Dindigul Dragons

After finishing 6th on the points table in the last season, the Dindigul Dragons came back strongly to claim 2nd place here. Just like their opponent, the Dragons have lost just 1 match during the group stages and will be looking to maintain the winning momentum.

Vimal Khumar and Shivam Singh will be looking to give the team a strong start here. The latter has been in particularly good form and is the leading run-getter for the team. Skipper Baba Indrajith slammed an unbeaten 83 in the last match to lead the Dragons to their 3rd consecutive win of the season and will add stability to the middle order along with Adithya Ganesh.

Boopathi Kumar hasn’t been in the best of forms and will look to turn things around here. Seamers Subodh Bhati and Saravana Kumar have done an excellent job with the new ball, picking up 21 wickets between them. They will once again lead the attack here.

Varun Chakaravarthy has bowled brilliantly and picked up 11 wickets. He will feature alongside R Aushik and Mathivannan in the spin department.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the SCF Ground in Salem is well-balanced, providing equal opportunities for the batsmen as well as the bowlers. There is some amount of movement for the seamers early on in the match and the batsmen will need to get their eye in before they start playing the big shots. However, the surface does settle down as the match progresses. The average first-inning score here is around 160, which is a par score.

The weather is expected to remain cloudy with a couple of showers during the day. 


LKK vs DID Betting Tips

Both teams have been neck and neck in terms of their form, and have charted similar paths to get to this stage, making this an extremely difficult match to call. However, we think that the Lyca Kovai Kings have a slight edge here. They have some excellent players on the team and the bowling is top-notch too.

Bet on the Lyca Kovai Kings to win.
