LKK vs NRK Team Previews

Lyca Kovai Kings

The Lyca Kovai Kings had made it to the finals in the previous season but had to share the prize with the Chepauk Super Gillies as the match was washed out. They will now want the result to swing their way this season. They finished at the top of the points table during the group stage and defeated the Dindigul Dragons in Qualifier 1 to gain a direct entry to the Finals.

S Sujay and Suresh Kumar will look to give the team a strong start in this match. Both have played well so far and are capable of giving a solid base for the batsmen to follow. U Mukilesh and B Sachin will add stability to the middle order and their role will be important, especially in the absence of Sai Sudharsan, who is playing in the Duleep Trophy.

Skipper Shahrukh Khan has contributed well with the bat and the ball, scoring 124 runs and picking up 14 wickets. He is the leading wicket-taker for the Kovai Kings this season. He will feature in the spin attack along with M Siddharth and J Subramanyan.

K Gowtham and M Mohammed have done a good job with the new ball, picking up 21 wickets between them. Overall, the Lyca Kovai Kings have a well-balanced team at their disposal.

Nellai Royal Kings

The Nellai Royal Kings are one of the youngest franchises in the league and have played extremely well to make it into the finals in their third season. They deserve to be here as after finishing 3rd on the table, they defeated the Madurai Panthers in the Eliminator, and the Dindigul Dragons in Qualifier 2 to set up a date with the Kovai Kings.

Skipper Arun Karthik has been in excellent form with the bat and has given his team many a good start this season. He is likely to team up with P Sugendhiran at the top of the order. Ajitesh Guruswamy is in scintillating form, scoring a total of 384 runs. He is the top scorer of this season.

He has been well-supported by Nidhish Rajagopal in the middle order, who has an average of 64.00. Sonu Yadav is proving to be a dependable all-rounder and has scored 115 runs while also picking up 9 wickets. He will be joined by Sandeep Warrier and M Poiyamozhi in the seam attack, with the latter being the leading wicket-taker for the team.

The spin attack consists of Lakshay Jain and Mohan Prasath, with NS Harish chipping in when needed.
