The fifth match of the Tamil Nadu Premier League 2019 will be played between Dindigul Dragons and Madurai Panthers at the Indian Cement Company Ground in Tirunelveli.

Both Dindigul Dragons and Madurai Panthers are coming off wins from their first matches. While Dragons won their match against Chepauk Super Gillies by 10 runs, Madurai Panthers cantered to victory against TUTI Patriots.

That said, the win of the Panthers was far more clinical and hence the team would take a lot of confidence going into this match. Additionally, the tag of being the defending champions adds a bit of burden, but it also imparts the much-required belief of having been there, done that before.

Skipper Ravichandran Ashwin and NS Chaturved were the highest run-scorers for the Dragons in the first match. Quite surprisingly, Ashwin came at one down and batted at a strike rate of close to 200. With the ball M Silambarasan picked up four wickets, while Jagannathan Kaushik and M Mohammed bagged two each.

For Madurai Panthers, the bowlers did the job in the first match, restricting TUTI Patriots for just 124. Kiran Akash and R Mithun were the leading men, both picking up three wickets each.

With the bat, captain Arun Karthik and fellow opener Sarath Raj did all the scoring and would have the onus of getting the team off to a good start once again.

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

Dindigul Dragons- Hari Nishanth, N Jagadeesan, Ravichandran Ashwin, NS Chaturved, Ramalingam Rohit, M Mohammed, R Vivek, M Silambarasan, Jagannathan Kaushik, Mohan Abhinav, Sumant Jain

Madurai Panthers- Arun Karthik, A Sarath Raj, Nilesh Subramanian, Shijit Chandran, Jagatheesan Kousik, Akash Sumra, Abhishek Tanwar, R Mithun, Kiran Akash, Lokesh Raj, Rahil Shah
