CSG vs KAK Team Previews
Chepauk Super Gillies
The Chepauk Super Gillies won their last match against the Ruby Trichy Warriors by a comfortable margin but we think they were lucky at quite a few places in the match. Kaushik Gandhi continues to disappoint at the top of the order and there is no clarity whether Vijay Shankar is going to play a match or not.
We have to assume that Vijay Shankar is not going to be available at this point in time.
The batting for the Chepauk Super Gillies is looking a bit thin. Ganga Sridhar Raju and Gopinath played well in the previous match but it was an attacking 39 from Harish Kumar that ultimately allowed CSG to get to a defendable target.
Such innings are not going to come about in every match and so the top-order must take more responsibility.
The bowling was headlined by R Alexander who took five wickets for just nine runs in his quota of four overs. Left-arm spinners have had some success in the TNPL already and we think they are going to be rewarded a lot more going forward.
Murugan Ashwin and G Periyaswamy have been quite good in the bowling department and give the Chepauk Super Gillies a decent attack to work with.

Karaikudi Kaalai was utterly destroyed by the VB Kanchi Veerans in their previous match. That was the kind of match that can shake the confidence of a side and put doubts in the minds of the players for a long time to come.
The bowling was taken to the cleaners and no one apart from R Rajkumar was able to exert any control.
Senior players like Yo Mahesh and Mohan Prasath were found to be lacking in their execution of skills. Karaikudi Kallai will need a serious rethink about its tactics, particularly when facing attack from a set batsman.
The bowling standards are not very high in the Tamil Nadu Premier League but to be at the very bottom of the ladder is not desirable either.
Facing a tough total to chase down like 177 was always going to be tough and everything depended on Srikkanth Anirudha. He was out second ball without scoring and that was the end of any hope that Karakudi Kaalai had.
M Shajahan and R Rajkumar are pretty decent strikers of the ball but they seem to be batting very low down the order. We think the dependence of Karaikudi Kaalai on Srikkanth Anirudha is dangerous considering how aggressive a player he is.
There must be some plan B to fall back upon if their star batsman does not perform. Up until then, Karaikudi Kaalai is always going to be prone to collapses like the one it suffered in the previous match.

Dream11 team for Chepauk Super Gillies vs Karaikudi Kaalai is going to try and include the most number of bowlers possible. The pitches in the TNPL have been slow and difficult for batting, making a bowling heavy side the attractive option.
Srikkanth Anirudh is the asy choice as wicketkeeper. He is one of the leading batsmen for Karaikudi Kaalai and also opens the inning on most occasions.
Batsmen: We have picked the minimum three batsmen in this match. Kaushik Gandhiu, K Gopinath, and M Shajahan are the three batsmen we have selected. Kaushik Gandhi is in poor form but he is a good enough batsman to persist with while Gopinath and Shajahan are also among the better batsmen in this match.
The batting riches don’t run very deep and that is why we are only selecting the three options here.
All-rounders: Murugan Ashwin and R Rajkumar are the two all-rounders for this match. Ashwin is a genuine batsman at this level of the game while Rajkumar is more a bowler only.
Bowlers: R Alexander took five wickets in his previous match and is in excellent form. We have picked him, Sunil Sam, G Periyaswamy, V Lakshman, and M SIddharth as our five bowlers for this match.
