Editor’s Pick(TNPL): Chepauk Super Gillies vs VB Thiruvallur Veerans

The first match saw Tuti Patriots - the defending champions - defeat Dindigul Dragons - who lost to Tuti Patriots in the Semis of TNPL 2016. Four of the top five performers on the fantasy lineup were in my lineup. That is a good sign, yes?

The second match - Yesterday - saw Kovai Kings lose to Karaikudi Kalai. KK hit 158 in 20 overs and the target was hit by LKK in 19.3 overs. That was a close match. It could have gone either way.


Let’s see how the next match goes. Chennai versus Thiruvallur. While Chennai made it to the last four, Tiruvallur ended up in the bottom four. Baba Aparjith is the only player of VBT Veerans to record a century (118). He is one to watch out for.
