NRK vs DID Match Preview

There have been some inspiring performances by the batsmen for the Nellai Royal Kings. Ajitesh Guruswamy is the leading scorer for the team and is averaging 62.66 this season. Arun Karthik slammed a century in the last match, scoring 104 of just 61 deliveries to lead his team to a win against the mighty Super Gillies.

Sri Neranjan and R Easwaran have got a couple of good starts but the team will expect some big innings from them going forward. Sonu Yadav has proved to be a handy all-rounder, picking up 5 wickets and also scoring 76 runs. In the bowling department, M Poiyamozhi is the leading wicket-taker with 8 wickets and will lead the pace attack along with Sonu Yadav and Sandeep Warrier.

The latter hasn’t been in the best of forms this season. Lakshay Jain and Mohan Prasath have done a good job with the spin, taking 10 wickets between them. 

Shivam Singh has been brilliant at the top of the batting order for the Dindigul Dragons, scoring back-to-back half-centuries in his last 2 innings. He has received good support from his teammates Adithya Ganesh and Baba Indrajith. However, as we now move closer to the knockouts, the middle order will need to step up with their batting.

The likes of Vimal Khumar, Boopathi Kumar, and Sarath Kumar haven’t been fluent so far and will be hoping to turn things around here. The bowlers have contributed well to the team’s success. P Saravana Kumar and Subodh Bhati have bowled well with the new ball, picking up 10 and 7 wickets respectively.

Varun Chakaravarthy has been brilliant with his leg breaks and the team will expect more of the same here. G Kishoor and R Aushik will chip in during the middle overs. 

Weather Report

The weather is expected to be humid and we might see some due in the latter half of the match.
