The Dindigul Dragons finished their 2022 season with two wins out of seven league games, finishing sixth in the table. Let’s take a look at the players who can help them this year.
Keep an eye out for Vimal Khumar’s batting performance this season. He only played one match last season, but he showed promise with a score of 43 runs at a strike rate of 116.21 in that game. Adithya Ganesh’s move to the Dragons team for the upcoming season has sparked interest. His outstanding performance last year saw him score 103 runs in just six matches.
Baba Indrajith is an excellent batter. He had a quiet season last year, but he has previously demonstrated his class. In 2021, he scored 123 runs in 5 innings, averaging 61.50.
Varun Chakravarthy’s addition to the Dindigul Dragons team has significantly improved their bowling. Last season, he took 8 wickets in 7 matches with an economy of 7.08. Furthermore, he was outstanding in this year’s IPL, taking 20 wickets in 14 matches at an economy rate of 7.45. VP Diran, who took two wickets in four matches in the 2022 edition, will be a valuable addition to Varun’s bowling lineup.
Baba Indrajith(w/c), S Arun, Hemanth Kumar, Vimal Khumar, Boopathi Kumar, Adithya Ganesh, ME Tamil Dhileepan, Affan Khader, Rohan Bhutra, C Sarath Kumar, P Vignesh, Ravichandran Ashwin, VP Diran, G Kishoor, M Mathivannan, Varun Chakaravarthy, P Saravana Kumar, Advaith Sharma, Shivam Singh, Suboth Bhati
Players to watch out for:
Throughout his career, the talented opening batter has played with some excellent players and for top teams. In this match, he will be an important batter for the team.
The India international spinner did not play in the World Test Championship Final in England last week, but he will be an important player for the Dragons with both bat and ball in this game.
The 31-year-old spinner went wicketless in only three IPL matches in 2023, with his best figures of 4-15 against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Possible Playing XI:
Baba Indrajith, Vimal Khumar, Hemanth Kumar, Shivam Singh, Affan Khader, Adithya Ganesh (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Advaith Sharma, Varun Chakravarthy, Kishoor, M Mathivannan
Ba11sy Trichy finished the league stage of the 2022 edition in seventh place, having won two of their seven matches. It was a poor performance, and the team has decided to make some roster changes for this year. Let’s take a look at their potential players for this match.
Ganga Sridhar Raju has cemented his position as an important batsman for the Ba11sy Trichy after scoring 230 runs in 9 matches at a strike rate of 112 last season. We believe in him as a key hitter for the team.
Trichy has signed Daryl Ferrario to join their team this season. In the previous year, he made significant contributions in seven matches, claiming three wickets and scoring 144 runs.
This season, K Easwaran has joined the Trichy team and will play an important role as a bowler. The right-arm fast bowler claimed 9 wickets in 6 matches at an economy of 7.73 during the 2022 edition.
Ramadoss Alexandar, a slow left-arm orthodox spinner, will also play for Trichy this season. Last season, he took 10 wickets in 9 innings for a 7.92 economy rate.
Natarajan is another bowler we like. He’s now a seasoned T20 bowler who will be especially useful in the team’s death overs. This year’s IPL saw the left-arm seamer take 10 wickets in 12 innings with an economy of 9.11.
Ganga Sridhar Raju(c), Mani Bharathi(w), Daryl Ferrario, Jafar Jamal, P Francis Rokins, Akshay Srinivasan, T Saran, K Easwaran, M Shajahan, R Rajkumar, SP Vinod, G Godson, Karaparambil Monish, Antony Dhas, R Alexander, T Natarajan, V Athisayaraj Davidson, R Silambarasan, Karthik Shanmugam, K Mohamed Azeem
Players to watch out for:
With his aggressive approach, the 29-year-old opening batter will be used to get the innings off to a quick start in this game.
Daryl Ferrario has joined Trichy from last season’s bottom-of-the-table Salem Spartans. Last year, he led all scorers with 60 points.
During the 2022 Tamil Nadu Premier League, the left-arm spinner took six wickets in six consecutive games, including two in Coimbatore.
Possible Playing XI:
Ganga Sridhar Raju, Akshay Srinivasan, M Shajahan, Anthony Dhas, Daryl Ferrario, P Francis Rokins, Jafar Jamal, R Rajkumar, Ramadoss Alexandar, Ragupathy Silambarasan, Athisayaraj Davidson
Dindigul Dragons vs Ba11sy Trichy Batsmen Worth Watching
Dindigul Dragons’ batsmen are Baba Indrajith, Hemanth Kumar, and Shivam Singh. Singh, 27, bats in the middle order but is expected to strike frequently. Kumar has batting experience with both the Dragons and Trichy, the opponents in this match.
Our bat recommendations for Ba11sy Trichy are Akshay Srinivasan, Anthony Dhas, and Daryl Ferrario. In this format, Dhas averages 44.00 and has a strike rate of 133.33. Ferrario continues to be an entertaining player who can always win a game with the bat.
Dindigul Dragons vs Ba11sy Trichy Bowlers Worth Watching
For the Dindigul Dragons, we recommend Ravichandran Ashwin, Varun Chakravarthy, and Kishoor with the ball. Kishoor had figures such as 2-40 and 3-39 in the 2022 Tamil Nadu Premier League. Throughout his career, Ashwin has taken 301 T20 wickets.
We believe that R Rajkumar, Ramadoss Alexandar, and Athisayaraj Davidson will be the best bowlers for Ba11sy Trichy. In the 2022 Tamil Nadu Premier League, Davidson took seven wickets in nine appearances. In this format, Rajkumar bowls with good pace.
Dindigul Dragons vs Ba11sy Trichy Toss Prediction
The chasing teams won six of the nine matches played here in the tournament last season. Furthermore, given the dew factor, both captains are likely to choose to bowl first if they win the toss on this playing surface.
Dindigul Dragons vs Ba11sy Trichy Pitch Report
In the TNPL, the average first innings score at the SNR College Cricket Ground is 159. The Nellai Royal Kings achieved the highest score of 236 here. To be competitive, the team batting first will need to score between 165 and 175 runs.
The SNR College Cricket Ground in Coimbatore is a good wicket for chasing. The ball does stick to the surface slightly, but once dew has settled, batting will become much easier. The previous season demonstrated that spinners thrived in these conditions. Slower bowlers can make life difficult for batters during the middle overs. Throughout the match, the weather in Coimbatore will be hot and humid.
Dindigul Dragons vs Ba11sy Trichy Prediction
