The fourth match of the Tamil Nadu Premier League 2019 will be played between Lyca Kovai Kings and VB Kanchi Veerans at the NPR College Ground in Dindigul.

VB Kanchi Veerans would be disappointed at most of their last year's campaign as they were successful in winning only one out of their seven matches. However, that victory came against Kovai Kings, the same opposition which they will face in this match. That 14-run victory last year will certainly give them a psychological advantage.

On the other hand, Kovai Kings were successful in making it to the playoffs but got beaten in the 2nd qualifier to Madurai Panthers last year. After the group stage, they ended at the third spot with four wins and three losses and won the Eliminator en route to the 2nd qualifier.

The two teams would be the last ones to kick off their TNPL 2019 campaigns. Skipper Abhinav Mukund will be one of the leading batters for the Kovai Kings. Mukund was the highest run-getter in the last season and was in good touch in the Ranji season as well.

Shahrukh Khan scored the most runs for them last year with 325 runs from 9 innings. The standout point was his strike rate of over 140, which will serve the team well. Thangarasu Natarajan will be the team's lead bowler after the left-arm medium pacer took 12 wickets from eight matches in the last season.

For Kanchi Veerans, skipper Baba Aparajith will look to improve on his performances in the last season. His all-round ability gives the team an edge. P Francis Rokins is another talented batsman in the team's ranks, while Raju Kaushik Srinivas will be their lead bowler.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Lyca Kovai Kings- Shahrukh Khan, Abhinav Mukund (c), Mohammed Ashik (wk), Ashwin Venkataraman, Balchander Anirudh, Antony Dhas, Prasanth Rajesh, Ajith Ram, S Manigandan, Kishnamoorthy Vignesh, Thangarasu Natarajan

VB Kanchi Veerans- Sanjay Yadav, Baba Aparajith (c), K Vishal Vaidhya, U Vishal, RS Mokit Hariharan, P Francis Rokins, Rangaraj Suthesh, Suresh Lokeshwar (wk), Gowtham Thamarai Kannan, Raju Aushik Srinivas, C Shriram
