LKK vs CSG Match Preview

Although the LKK outfit lost their last match, they took their opposition Nellai Royal Kings to the last delivery of the match. We do not believe that there will be any players dropped from the team ahead of this match. But a change of pitch for the game might see some alterations in the batting order. The 21-year-old Sai Sudarshan has taken ahead his terrific form with the bat in the IPL into the TNPL. He is maintaining the same performance level in this tournament as well. Sudarshan could take apart even the best of the bowling attacks.

Another crucial player for LKK has been Suresh Kumar who has a lot of experience in this format and he opens the batting for LKK. He struck 4 fours in his last appearance for LKK. A right-arm medium pacer Gowtham Thamarai Kannan is a much-improved bowler compared to the 2022 competition. He has not been among wickets so far in the competition though. After registering a big win in their first encounter, Kovai Kings have not managed to make it two in a row, unlike their opposition in the game.

Chepauk Super Gillies unlike LKK are off to a flyer in the competition. They picked up a win in their last match with a margin of 7 wickets and with 26 balls still to go. It is not expected that the CSG team will make any alterations to their team for this match. The prevailing weather conditions during the game might force the management to make some changes but that apart, the winning combination is not likely to be disturbed. Another seamer that is capable of swinging the ball might be considered for this contest. 

One of the key players for CSG is their skipper Baba Aprajith. He has already accumulated 75 runs in the competition for his side in the competition and he succeeded in hitting 7 fours during his last inning. Another crucial player for Super Gillies is the medium-fast bowler Harish Kumar. This experienced medium-fast bowler gave away just 12 runs from his four overs in the game played on Thursday. He also picked up a couple of scalps in the process. The slow left-arm bowler Rahil Shah is another experienced bowler for Super Gillies. This left-arm orthodox bowler had figures of 2 for 18 in his last encounter from 4 overs.
