CHE vs. DIN Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview: TNPL’19 | Vijay Shankar ruled out
Chepauk Super Gillies and Dindigul Dragons will face-off in the opening encounter of Tamil Nadu Premier League 2019 at Dindigul. We will provide CHE vs. DIN Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the match.
Chepauk Super Gillies was in an inferior form last season after a victorious campaign in 2017. They were able to win only one match last year and will be eager to make a comeback tomorrow. Their regular skipper Vijay Shankar is injured and is ruled out of first matches. Newly recruited Kaushik Gandhi will lead the team from the front with the bat along with Ganga Sridhar Raju, Gopinath, and S Karthik. Murugan Ashwin will be the key in the bowling department along with Harish Kumar, Sivakumar, Alexander, and B Arun. They will hope to give a tough challenge to strong Dindigul Dragons team.
Dindigul Dragons were the table toppers of TNPL’18 but unluckily were eliminated in qualifiers. They have a well-balanced squad led by R Ashwin. The onus will be on N Jagadeesan, R Vivek and Hari Nishant to score the majority of runs. A unison effort will be expected from all players in the opening encounter to get some early momentum going ahead in the campaign.
We can expect a good contest between both teams.
