CSG vs IDTT Match Preview

Chepauk Super Gillies boast of an enviable batting line-up. Pradosh Paul and N Jagadeesan are likely to start the proceedings with the bat. Jagadeesan has had an excellent domestic season and will be looking to carry on with that form here. Paul scored a brilliant half-century in the opening match and appears to be in good touch.

The Super Gillies have further strengthened their batting by roping in Baba Aparajith and Sanjay Yadav who were among the top 3 scorers for the last season. Uthirasamy Sasidev, Harish Kumar, and Rajagopal Sathish add depth to the batting.

Coming to the bowling, Harish Kumar and Ramalingam Rohit are likely to lead the seam attack, along with M Viju Arul. The Super Gillies has a potent spin attack too, consisting of the likes of M Silambarasan, Rahil Shah, and Rocky Bhasker. 

The Tiruppur Tamizhans will need to do a lot of work on their batting, especially as they face a quality bowling attack like the Super Gillies. Tushar Raheja and NS Chaturved are likely to open the batting here and the team will be banking on them to give a good start.

The middle order is made up of Vishal Vaidhya, Balchander Ashwin, and S Ganesh will be looking to stabilize the innings during the middle overs. The team does have a few all-rounders like skipper Sai Kishore, Vijay Shankar, and Rajendran Vivek, who can provide a late flourish toward the end of the innings.

The bowling effort was pretty mediocre in the last match and there is a lot of scope for improvement. The new ball bowlers, G Periyaswamy and P Bhuvaneswaran were taken for plenty of runs and will need to be disciplined with their line and length.

Sai Kishore and Vijay Shankar took 5 wickets between them, while the spinners, Ajith Ram and S Manigandan failed to make a significant impact.

Dream11 Prediction

We are backing the Chepauk Super Gillies to win here. They have been by far the strongest franchise in the TNPL and have shown no signs of slowing down. They were clinical with their performance in the opening game and with the good record they enjoy against the Tiruppur Tamizhans, it wouldn’t be surprising to see them win here. 


Top Picks

Sanjay Yadav: Sanjay Yadav was the top run-getter in the previous season and started well this season too, remaining unbeaten on 31 in the season opener.

S Harish Kumar: Harish Kumar is a vital cog in the Super Gillies team and can contribute well with the bat as well as the ball.

Sai Kishore: Another all-rounder, but this time from the Tamizhans, Kishore can be quite effective with his left-arm orthodox spin here.
