Editor’s Pick(TNPL): Karaikudi Kaalai - Lyca Kovai Kings

The dreaded Eliminator is here. Karaikudi Kaalai meets Lyca Kovai Kings. The match takes place at NPR College Ground, Dindigul. With two days to the final, things are getting really hot and exciting. The winner of this match will play in Qualifier 2. Finals cannot be ruled out for this team.

Earlier in Qualifier one, TUTI Patriots vs Chepauk Super Gillies, the Patriots defeated the Gillies by eight wickets at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. Washington Sundar walked away with the honours. Now, the Patriots get a chance to defend their title in the finals. Chepauk Super Gillies take on the winner of Qualifier 2.

Let’s take a look at the match today that will make the difference.
Teams:
Lyca Kovai Kings: Murali Vijay(c), L Suryaprakash, B Anirudh Sita Ram, Ravi Kumar Rohith(w), Akshay Srinivasan, S Harish Kumar, M Mohammed, Krishnamoorthy Vignesh, B Arun, S Ajith Ram, K Gowtham Thamarai Kannan, M Siddharth, Pradosh Ranjan Paul, Manish Ravi, K Deeban Lingesh, MK Sivakumar, S Tarun Srinivas, Ranjan Paul

S Mohan Prasath
Krishnamoorthy
M Mohammed
Batsmen
S Badrinath
Murali Vijay
K Vishal Vaidhya
S Aniruddha
M Shahjahan
All-Rounder
S Lokeshwar

This lineup left me with a salary of six to pick one more player. There is no player at that price. So I had to drop R Rajkumar, replace him with S.Ajit Ram, and then add Suresh Babu.

An alternate lineup.

Ravi Kumar Rohith

Kovai Kings have peaked in the right moment and have given themselves the opportunity to be in the finals. If they score well in this match, they are capable of even winning the cup. Kovai has demonstrated some very good performance and will put up a fight for sure. Kaalai has a good team with Sunil Sam, Shah Jahan and Chandrasekar. S Anirudha is sure to fire as well.

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.
