Tamil Nadu Premier League 2022: 1st Match – Chepauk Super Gillies vs Nellai Royal Kings – Preview and Updates

On Thursday afternoon, Chepauk Super Gillies will face Nellai Royal Kings in the 2022 Tamil Nadu Premier League. Chepauk Super Gillies won the 2021 tournament after defeating Ruby Trichy Warriors in the final last August. Nellai Royal Kings finished fifth overall. The match begins at 19:15 local time at The Indian Cement Company Ground in Tirunelveli.

Chepauk Super Gillies were not unbeatable last season, losing three games en route to winning the championship. They did, however, win the big games when it counted, and they will be fired up to start this season strong.

Last year, Nellai Royal Kings were extremely difficult to predict. They crumbled in their final game, preventing them from finishing in the top four, but they will be confident heading into the new season.
