LKK vs NRK Match Preview

S Sujay and Suresh Kumar will look to give LKK 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.

Skipper Arun Karthik has been in excellent form with the bat  for NRK 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.

Dream11 Prediction

We are backing the Lyca Kovai Kings to win here. They have been very consistent throughout this season and finished at the top of the points table. They will be very well rested when they take on the field on Wednesday. On the other hand, the Nellai Royal Kings had to take the longer route and had a hectic week in the build-up to the Finals, which can take a toll on its performance.
