The latest season of Tamil Nadu Premier League, India’s most successful domestic T20 Premier League, has begun, and all teams are ready to compete for glory. Nonetheless, because teams can only play a maximum of seven matches, the TNPL can blow right past you in the early stages.
Lyca Kovai Kings would be devastated if they lost a game they thought they should have won. As difficult as it may be, they must put the loss behind them and focus on the next game. They can take a lot of positives from the previous game and will bounce back.
Chepauk Super Gillies have also done well in this year’s TNPL. With victories in both games thus far, they appear to be the team to beat this season. They will, however, want to maintain this form and break away from the pack as soon as possible.
The 9th Match between Lyca Kovai Kings vs Chepauk Super Gillies will take place on June 19th, 2023 at NPR College Ground, Dindigul.
Match Details to Note

Lyca Kovai Kings will be extremely disappointed with how they lost their previous game. A match that they felt was in their grasp was snatched away from them in the final 10 balls, leaving them shattered. However, they can take many positives from the game and use them to improve their performance in the next game.
Lyca Kovai Kings could not have asked for more after losing the toss and being put in to bat first. Despite losing the first wicket cheaply, they made an incredible comeback to post a total of 181 for 6. Golden Boy Sai Sudarshan was the star once again, scoring 90 off 52 balls, with Shahrukh Khan finishing with 17 off 8 balls.
The bowlers started off extremely well, defending such a large score, and thought the match was over. Ajitesh’s fantastic hundred, however, really hurt their chances, but with 21 needed out of 7, they surely thought they could defend it. One of the best matches of the TNPL ended in heartbreak for Lyca Kovai Kings. Manimaran Siddharth was the standout bowler, taking one wicket and allowing only 23 runs in four overs.

Players to watch out for:
The 21-year-old has taken his brilliant form from the IPL and maintained it in this campaign. He can dismantle the best bowling attacks.
The keeper-batsman has plenty of experience in this format and bats first for the team. In his final inning, he hit four home runs.
Gowtham Thamarai Kannan
The 29-year-old right-arm medium fast bowler improved significantly from the 2022 tournament and has yet to go wicketless in the 2023 tournament.
Possible Playing XI:
B Sachin, J Suresh Kumar(w), Sai Sudharsan, Ram Arvindh, U Mukilesh, Shahrukh Khan(c), M Mohammed, Kiran Akash, Manimaran Siddharth, Jhatavedh Subramanyan, K Gowtham Thamarai Kannan
Chepauk Super Gillies have started the TNPL in spectacular fashion, going undefeated. They are at the top of the table after winning both games so far and will look to extend their lead. They’ll want to keep up their dominant play in the next game.
Chepauk Super Gillies completely outplayed the opposition after losing the toss and being put into the field first. Getting early wickets and wickets at regular intervals really slowed the opposition down. It was an incredible effort to limit them to 120 runs in 20 overs. Harish Kumar was the standout bowler, taking two wickets and allowing only 12 runs.
With such a low total, the batting department did an excellent job. Chasing the total in 16 overs also helped their net run rate tremendously. Baba Aparajit led the way with 46 runs off 29 balls. This victory extended their dominance and propelled them to the top of the table.

Players to watch out for:
The captain has already scored 75 runs for his team this tournament, and he hit seven boundaries in his last innings.
The experienced medium fast bowler conceded only 12 runs in four overs on Thursday while also taking two wickets.
In the previous match, the 37-year-old slow left-arm bowler returned brilliant figures of 2-18 from 4 overs. We expect him to get another turn on this wicket.

N Jagadeesan(w/c), Baba Aparajith, S Harish Kumar, Sanjay Yadav, Rajagopal Sathish, Uthirasamy Sasidev, Rahil Shah, Rocky Bhasker, Ramalingam Rohit, M Silambarasan, M Viju Arul
