The 25th match of the Tamil Nadu Premier League 2019 will be played between Karaikudi Kaalai and Madurai Panthers at the Indian Cement Company Ground in Tirunelveli.


Madurai Panthers are placed at the third spot in the points table with four wins and two losses from six matches. The team has eight points and a net run rate of +0.689.

On the other hand, Karaikudi Kaalai are placed right at the bottom of the leaderboard with only one win and five losses from six games. They have two points and a poor run rate of -2.208.

Karaikudi Kaalai lost their last match against Lyca Kovai Kings by 15 runs due to some measured bowling from Sunil Sam and R Rajkumar. Karaikudi were successful in restricting the Kovai Kings to 154.


Unfortunately for them, their batting could not come good. Skipper Srikkanth Anirudha, Maan Bafna and S Ganesh could not carry on after getting set. M Shajahan scored a quick-fire 41 towards the end but it was too late by then as the team fell short by 15 runs.

On the contrary, Madurai Panthers registered a comfortable 33-run victory over Chepauk Super Gillies in their last game. Arun Karthik and captain Shijit Chandran were there leading scorers but it was actually their bowlers who won the match for them.

Abhishek Tanwar and Kiran Akash bagged three wickets each and restricted the Super Gillies to just 139.

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

Karaikudi Kaalai- Srikkanth Anirudha, Laxmesha Suryaprakash, Rajhamany Srinivasan, R Rajkumar, Maan Bafna, S Ganesh, RD Ashwin Kumar, Sunil Sam, S Swaminathan, Yo Mahesh, M Shajahan

Madurai Panthers- Arun Karthik, A Sarath Raj, Shijit Chandran, R Karthikeyan, R Mithun, Jagatheesan Kousik, Abhishek Tanwar, Nilesh Subramanian, Kiran Akash, Rahil Shah, N Selva Kumaran
