In the 15th match of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2019 edition, the TUTI Patriots (TP) will be locking horns with the VB Kanchi Veerans (VBKV) at the Indian Cement Company Ground in Tirunelveli on July 30, Tuesday. Both the teams are coming into this game after witnessing contrasting results unfold in their respective previous outings. Veerans are placed at the third spot in the points table with two wins and one loss from three matches. They are with four points and have a pretty good net run rate of +1.498.
On the other hand, TUTI Patriots are at the sixth place in the leaderboard with one win and two losses from three games. They have just two points and have a net run rate of -2.153. The defeat in their last match will hurt TUTI Patriots the most as they were decently placed with one win and one loss from two matches before the game against the Dindigul Dragons.
They not only lost the match but lost it by a big margin of 40 runs, which will affect them in two ways. One, it will hit their net run rate pretty badly. Two, it will not do any service to their confidence either.
Head to Head Battle
VB Kanchi Veerans
TUTI Patriots likely Playing XI
Patriots do not have any injury issues to deal with ahead of their clash against VB Kanchi Veerans. The team is likely to open its batting again with Akshay Srinivasan and Sivagnanan Senthilnathan. The latter has failed to make the most of the two opportunities presented to him but he will probably be backed for one more game.
Pacers V Athisayaraj Davidson and Tamil Kumaran will be leading the team's bowling attack. The Patriots have fielded the same eleven in their last two matches and are expected to go unchanged again.
Probable XI: Akshay Srinivasan, Sivagnanan Senthilnathan, V Subramania Siva (c), Nidish Rajagopal, S Abishiek, Murugesan Kamlesh (wk), Vasanth Saravanan, SP Nathan, M Ganesh Moorthi, Tamil Kumaran, V Athisayaraj Davidson.
VB Kanchi Veerans likely Playing XI
Kanchi Veerans made just the one change to their side in the last match against Madurai Panthers - they dropped opening batsman U Mukilesh, who got a duck in each of the team's first two matches, by S Siddharth. The latter too could not make much of an impact in his first outing but the Veerans seem to have no other option but to stick to him.
Suresh Lokeshwar smashed a fifty after being promoted to number four last time out, and he will probably continue to bat at that position for now. The Veerans are coming on the back of a win and so they may not want to make any changes in their line-up for this match.
Probable XI: K Vishal Vaidhya, S Siddharth, Baba Aparajith (c), Suresh Lokeshwar (wk), Rajagopal Sathish, Sanjay Yadav, P Francis Rokins, NS Harish, R Silambarasan, Rangaraj Suthesh, K Gowtham Thamarai Kannan.
