Sandeep Warrier, Sonu Yadav, M Poiyamozhi, Mohan Prasath, and Lakshay Jain will be relied on to deliver timely breakthroughs in the bowling department.

Players to watch out for:
Arun Karthik averaged 41.86 in TNPL 2022 after scoring 293 runs in eight innings at a strike rate of 127.39. The 37-year-old batted beautifully against the Panthers in the tournament opener, making 32 off just 12 deliveries, but then went for a golden duck against the Kovai Kings. The Royal Kings captain will be eager to regain his former form, and this should be the opportunity.
Sandeep Warrier had an outstanding TNPL 2022 season, taking 11 wickets in nine matches, trailing only Abhishek Tanwar (17 wickets) and Kiran Akash (12). However, the 32-year-old right-arm quick has yet to have a standout performance in the competition this year, failing to pick up a wicket in two attempts. Nonetheless, given his track record of snaring wickets at regular intervals, we would advise bettors to put their faith in Warrier more than anyone else in the Royal Kings’ bowling unit.
Possible Playing XI:
Arun Karthik (c), Nidhish Rajagopal, SJ Arun Kumar, Ajitesh Guruswamy, Rithik Easwaran (wk), Sonu Yadav, R Mithun, M Poiyamozhi, S Mohan Prasath, Lakshay Jain S, Sandeep Warrier
To compete with Nellai Royal Kings, IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans will need to improve their overall game with bat and ball.
In the batting department, the team will rely on Vijay Shankar, Tushar Raheja, Vishal Vaidhya, NS Chaturved, and S Radhakrishnan to deliver the majority of the runs.
S Radhakrishnan scored 36 runs off 33 balls with two fours and one six in the previous match, while Vijay Shankar and Rajendra Vivek contributed crucial scores of 28 and 26 runs, respectively.
S Ajit Ram, P Bhuvaneswaran, Sai Kishore, Vijay Shankar, and Mohamed Ali will be relied on to deliver crucial breakthroughs in the bowling department.
S Ajith Ram was the standout bowler for IDream Tiruppur Tamizhan in the previous match, taking 2 for 15 in four overs.
Tushar Raheja, Vijay Shankar, R Vivek, R Sai Kishore, Anirudh Sita Ram B, Chaturved NS, Periyasamy G, Trilok Nag H, Vishal Vaidhya K, Rahul Ayyapan Harish, Ganesh S, Mohamed Ali S, Manigandan S, Radhakrishnan S, Vetrivel I, Karuppusamy S, Bhuvaneswaran P, Ragavan M
Players to watch out for:
The Tirippur opener was one of the top run scorers in the TNPL 2022, scoring 180 runs in eight matches. However, he had a rough start to the season, leaving after scoring in the single digits (8 and 4) in both matches. Keeping in mind the 32-year-old’s skill set, it only takes one good match to regain form, and who knows, the Royal Kings match could be ideal for the veteran.
Sai Kishore finished as the competition’s joint-third highest wicket-taker last year, with 11 wickets in just six matches in TNPL 2022. The Tiruppur captain had an excellent start to the season as well, claiming 2/24 against Kovai Kings, but returned 0/39 in their previous match against Gillies. However, given Sai Kishore’s importance in the Tiruppur bowling attack, expect the 26-year-old left-arm spinner to contribute.
Possible Playing XI:
Tushar Raheja (wk), NS Chaturved, Vijay Shankar, S Radhakrishnan, K Vishal Vaidhya, Balchander Anirudh, Rajendran Vivek, Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore (c), S Ajith Ram, Mohamed Ali, P Bhuvaneswaran
