WHERE: NPR College Ground, Dindigul
WHEN: July 20, Friday, 07:15 PM IST
In the opening game of the competition, the Tuti Patriots faced VB Kanchi Veerans and the match turned out to be a sitter as the Patriots closed off the match quite comprehensively by 48 runs. Batting first, the Tuti Patriots on the back of the skipper Kaushik Gandhi’s brilliant unbeaten ton (111 off 68 balls 13 fours and 3 sixes) which was also the first century of this season helped them set an intimidating score of 191 runs.
VB Kanchi Veerans did not start well for the chase as they lost their opener S Siddharth on the fourth ball of the innings. Vishal Vaidya (33) and skipper Baba Aparajith (29) tried to steady the sinking ship with a 56 runs partnership for the second wicket but were not able to cope up with the run rate. Some late blitz from V Subramaniam Siva (33 off 18) couldn’t prevent the Patriots from losing the match eventually by 48 runs.
Lyca Kovai Kings have played two games so far, they have played a scintillating super over match against the Karaikudi Kaalai which they won after defending the 16 runs target in the super over. Their second match was against the Dindigul Dragons where they were unable to clinch a high scoring thriller and eventually lost the match by 8 wickets as the Dindigul Dragons chased down 188 with 14 balls to spare.
