NRK vs IDTT Match Preview

The IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans played their last match in the competition against Chepauk Super Gillies. They lost this game easily by a margin of 7 wickets and with 26 balls to spare. Batting first in this game the Tiruppur Tamizhans team was quickly down to 3 for 24 from 6 overs. Their first powerplay overs did not realize too many runs for them. There was a good partnership for the 4th wicket between Vishal Vaidhya and Radhakrishnan that took the total to 82 from 14.5 overs. But there was a collapse after that and the Tamizhans could not accelerate towards the end.

The Chepauk Super Gillies team made short work of this easy target. They reached the requisite score in the 16th over of the innings with 7 wickets in hand. All their top-order batters were in reasonable form with Baba Aparajith being the top run-getter for Chepauk. Ajith Ram bowled well for Kings, picking up 2 wickets from his 4 overs giving away just 15 runs. Mohamed Ali was also among the runs picking one wicket. Other bowlers apart from these two could not pick wickets and the Kings lost this encounter pretty sedately.

The Nellai Royal Kings will go into this game on the back of a thrilling last-ball win against Lyca Kovai Kings in Coimbatore on 16th June. The Nellai team won this game on the last ball of the match with 4 wickets to spare. Guruswamy Ajitesh was the hero of the match for Nellai after scoring a 60-ball 112. The Lyca Kovai Kings batted first and Sai Sudarshan was at it again. He smashed 90 runs from 52 balls with 4 sixes and 7 fours. Only a couple of bowlers from the Nellai outfit were among the wickets.

M Poiyamozhi was one of them. He did look the part when he picked up 3 wickets for 29 runs from his 4 overs. Sonu Yadav was the only other bowler that tasted success but he was expensive. The Nellai inning was off to a bad start as the skipper Arun Karthik fell cheaply without opening his account. Although there was a useful contribution from Sonu Yadav, it was Guruswamy Ajitesh all the way. The man almost single-handedly took the Nellai team close to the target before being run out with victory in sight. But the Nellai lower middle order held its nerve to take the side to a win.
