CSG vs MPS Match Preview

The Chepauk Super Gillies team led by Baba Aparajith is in a spot of bother at the moment. Although they began the season well with a couple of wins, they have now dropped 3 games in a row. The CSG team is going into this contest with a big loss against NRK by a margin of 8 wickets. They will have to get their act together to do a good job in this game and hope for a better position in the points tally. The CSG openers Pradosh Paul and N Jagadeesan will have to provide a good start to the CSG inning.

The CSG skipper Baba Aparajith played a captain’s innings in their last match. He will need the support of Lokesh Raj and Sanjay Yadav in the middle overs. The CSG management will also be hoping for a good show from Uthiraswamy Sasidev and Harish Kumar in the lower middle order. The last game had the CSG bowling attack performing below their potential. But they will need a good spell from Ramalingam Rohit and S Harish Kumar, especially with the new ball. Rahil Shah bowled well in the last match. The support bowlers such as Rocky Bhasker, Aparajith, and M Silambarasan will need to contribute to the team's cause as well.

The Siechem Madurai Panthers team led by Hari Nishanth is going into this game with a huge win over Salem Spartans. They succeeded in bowling out their opposition for a small total of 98 runs in this math and chased the target down with 7 wickets to spare. The Madurai team will be aware of the pressure the CSG team is under due to the recent losses. They will be looking to exploit the conditions and try and move up the points table. Nishanth and V Aaditya fell relatively cheaply in the last match so they will be keen to get off to a solid start.

The middle order has done a good job for the Panthers and you can expect some good contributions from S Sri Abisek, Swapnil Singh, Washington Sundar, K Deeban Lingesh, and Koushik in this match. On the bowling front, Gurjapneet Singh and V Gowtham bowled superbly in their last match. This pair will again be on the lookout for more victims in this game. Other bowlers such as Jagatheesan Koushik and P Saravanan will be playing a supporting role in their effort. The CSG side has some good hitters in their ranks. These bowlers will have their work cut out against them.

Weather Report

Unfortunately, rain is expected today in Salem according to the weather bureau. These showers might likely come down during the match and disrupt it. There is a possibility of the D/L system coming into play for this game and we might get a rain-curtailed match.

Dream11 Prediction

The Chennai Super Gillies and Siechem Madurai Panthers are currently positioned in the number 4 and number 5 spot in the TNPL point table. Both these sides have provided mixed performances so far in the competition. But we reckon Chepauk Super Gillies to win this game as they have a better man-to-man team than Madurai Panthers. There is little to choose from between these two sides though. We will bet with the CSG outfit to win this contest.
