All teams have played seven matches as of now. Tuti Patriots, the current defending champions, are leading the table. They have won all the seven matches that they have played. Chepauk Super Gillies are second  on the table, having won six out of seven matches. The match played on August 18th is Qualifier 2. Chepauk Super Gillies, who lost to Tuti Patriots on August 15th (Qualifier 1) meet Lyca Kovai Kings who defeated Karaikudi Kaalai in the Eliminator that was played on August 16th.

The winner of this match meets Tuti Patriots in the finals on August 20th. This is a big match for Chennai and Coimbatore. TNPL 2016 saw Chennai and Thoothukudi. Will history repeat itself? One step at a time. This match first. The grand finale at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai Awaits.

Yo Mahesh can be consistent, having given only 11 runs in 3 overs, taking one wicket against Dindigul Dragons. Ravisrinivasan S and Sai Kishore are also wicket-takers. Anthony Dhas can contribute both with the bat as well as the ball. You can have U Sasidev in your lineup as well. But who will you take off?

Editor’s Pick (Nidahas T20): India - Sri Lanka

The table is currently in a very surprising situation. Most expected Sri Lanka to show Bangladesh the door. But here they are still standing up and shining. The tournament is wide open. Today’s match is between India and Sri Lanka. The stakes are much higher now that Bangladesh is more feared than before. The teams would not want to risk anything at this point. Earlier I had said that they might experiment with the lineup and give everyone a chance. Now it will be more than giving people a chance. They will strategize. The Indian team will be open to experimentation, but not at the cost of results.

The untested ones are Deepak Hooda, KL Rahul, and Axar Patel. India has lost to Sri Lanka in their first encounter of this tournament. They will want to be wary because another defeat could cost them the tournament itself. So, not all the new players will see the light today.
A lot depends on Rohit Sharma today. Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik will chip in too.…

Chennai beats Mumbai and clinch thriller

It is not just about coming back. It is about the impact you make in the process. And Chennai team knows how to with a bang.  The Chennai team beat the home team by one wicket in what was an absolute sit-at-the-end-of-the-chair thriller. It was one of the best chases the tournament has seen and it most definitely won't be the last. The player who made the difference in the end - Jadhav - literally came back from the dead after retiring hurt to take his team to the finish line by hitting the ball in style with a six and a four.  Batting on one leg and playing an absolutely unbelievable shot, this player leveled the scores first with a six and finished the match with a four. 
Key Points  MI has never won their opener since 2013.This was Chennai's first win against MI in an opener of this T20 League DRS used in the league for the first time Bravo: It was a great team effort. I want to dedicate this win to the CSK fan, they have waited long for it. I came very early. I …
