The Jones Tuti Patriots and the Ruby Trichy Warriors are going to head to head in a crucial match for both teams. It appears as the magic number is going to be 8 points for teams to even think of qualifying this season. Both the teams that are playing this match can reach that total. The Patriots need to win one out if its last two matches to get there while the Warriors have to win both of theirs. Since getting to 8 is also not going to guarantee a place in the knockouts until the group matches have been played out, both teams have everything to play for.
Three wins from five matches have been a fair return for the kind of form that the Tuti Patriots have shown this season. They started well with two wins in a row and then lost their next two matches to lose their way a little. Now with another win, the Patriots should be getting ready to make the final push and make it to the playoffs.
There has been one thing that has remained consistent about the Jones Tuti Patriots across their wins and losses: their batting. The Patriots have easily been the best batting side of the tournament. 165 was the lowest score that the team has recorded so far and 180 seems to be within reach for them in most matches.
This kind of run scoring is only possible if a couple of players are having excellent tournaments. KM Gandhi, R Sathish, S Dinesh, and S Anand have been the batsmen pulling the Patriots ahead.
All of them, along with Srinivasan have been scoring runs consistently and at a good rate. The Ruby Trichy Warriors will need to find a way to stop this lineup if they are to have any chance of winning.
Athisyaraj Davidson continues to pull ahead of the rest of the bowlers in terms of wickets taken. He now has 11 scalps to his name, almost double that of the next best bowler in the side. Alongside Akash Sumra and Sai Kishore, Davidson leads a decent bowling lineup that should be confident in being able to contain the Warriors batting.
S Dinesh, Kaushik Gandhi, Subramanian Anand, Rajagopal Sathish, Nidhish Rajagopal, Malolan Rangarajan, M Ganesh Moorthi, S Abishiek, Ravisrinivasan S Kishore, Akash Sumra, V Athisayaraj Davidson.
The Ruby Trichy Warriors are going to have a tough task winning this match. As the table stands, it looks pretty certain that the Ruby Trichy Warriors will have to win both their remaining matches to qualify. Since their last match is against a struggling VB Kanchi Veerans side, this is the match they will see as the clincher.
SS Kumar will have to play the inning of his life against a strong side to help his side get through. His batting has been the most consistent from the Warriors side and his 218 runs in the tournament are a testament to that.
He has received good support from Bharath Shankar, and Baba Inderjith but the Warriors do not have the depth that their opponents do. If the Ruby Trichy Warriors have to win then their frontline batsmen have to fire.
The bowling seems to be better balanced as a number of bowlers have shared the wickets so far. C Ganapathy with 8 leads the pack but Vignesh, Sonu Yadav, and Sanjay have all been effective as well. How this bowling attack holds up against the best batting side of the tournament could well be decisive.
Bharath Shankar, K Mani Bharathi, Baba Indrajith, Suresh Kumar, Dakshinamoorthy Kumaran, Chandrasekar Ganapathy, DT Chandrasekar, R Sonu Yadav, MS Sanjay, S Aravind, Kannan Vignesh.
The team winning the toss is likely to bat first
Some rain has been around Dindigul and the current forecast promises some more on match day. Typically, the pattern of rain has been such that thunderstorms in the day give way to a peaceful and rain-free evening. Hopefully, this will be the case and allow us to have a full match played out.
The pitch will favor the batsmen but the slower bowlers will start to become more important with each match. Expect par scores to be around 150.
