Nellai Royal Kings vs Chepauk Super Gillies Team Previews
Baba Indrajith’s team has had a fantastic run in the tournament. The team comes in after a 5-run loss to the Lyca Kovai Kings, their first of the season. Indrajith would like to dismiss this loss as an outlier because his team has won by large margins in other games. He would expect his players to play their natural game and win to advance to the final.
Laxmesha Suryaprakash has scored runs this year and will look to establish a solid opening wicket stand with Sri Neranjan. Their middle order is potent, and the trio of Baba Aparajith, Sanjay Yadav, and Indrajith would be confident after scoring runs in previous games. G Ajitesh, M Rooban Raj, and M Shajahan will look to do the heavy lifting in the game’s final overs.
Their bowlers were costly in the previous game, and the team would benefit from a strong start from V Athisayaraj Davidson and K Easwaran. Sanjay Yadav and Aparajith are both experienced bowlers who will play an important role in this match. They have a diverse attack, and the team is hoping for strong performances from M Shajahan, NS Harish, and Sri Neranjan in this game.

Predicted XI: Baba Indrajith (c & wk), Sri Neranjan, Laxmesha Suryaprakash, Baba Aparajith, Sanjay Yadav, M Rooban Raj, G Ajitesh, NS Harish, M Shajahan, V Athisayaraj Davidson, K Easwaran
Kaushik Gandhi’s team is in fine form. They have won five of their last six games. Their bowlers put on a brilliant performance in the previous game, defending a low score and winning by 60 runs against the IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans. Gandhi wants his players to be at their best as they face the tournament’s strongest team.
N Jagadeesan and Kaushik Gandhi did not play in the previous game, but they have performed admirably at the top. A strong start from them would put the team in command. Rajagopal Sathish, Sai Kishore, and S Radhakrishnan would look to form alliances and secure the side’s future. Sonu Yadav, Uthirasamy Sasidev, and Harish Kumar strengthen the side’s batting.
A brilliant spell of bowling by Manimaran Siddharth and Sandeep Warrier helped the side win the previous game, and they would like to replicate that performance. Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore’s four wickets would instill confidence in him. As the Royal Kings have a very strong batting line-up, R Alexander and Sonu Yadav will need to bowl well in support.

Nellai Royal Kings vs Chepauk Super Gillies Toss Prediction
It will be a close game, as we have seen most teams win games by chasing scores. The wicket isn’t ideal for batting because the ball frequently stops on the batsmen. As a result, the side that wins the toss should have little hesitation in opting to bowl first and restrict the opponents to a low total.
Pitch and Weather Conditions
The SCF Cricket Ground in Salem is a small facility with short boundaries. The wicket has been two-paced, which has caused batsmen to be concerned. At this venue, fast bowlers perform well in overcast conditions. Spinners have enjoyed bowling on this track because the ball can turn sharply.
We expect rain in Salem on July 27, which will make batting conditions difficult. The wicket has been challenging because the ball has not come onto the bat. Spinners and fast bowlers would both benefit from the overcast conditions. The team batting first would be pleased with a score of 170.
Nellai Royal Kings vs Chepauk Super Gillies Match Prediction
Both teams have shown excellent form, so we anticipate a close contest. The Chepauk Super Gilles have been excellent with the bat, but they will need a strong bowling attack to win this game.
