This article will talk about the probable XIs for both teams and continue with the Dream11 predictions and the winning fantasy team for the 4th game of the TNPL between the Dindigul Dragons and Seichem Madurai Panthers that is scheduled to take place on the 22nd of July 2021.
The Dindigul Dragons which will be led by R Srinivasan in the absence of regular skipper Ravichandran Ashwin will be taking on the Seichem Madurai Panthers which is helmed by NS Chaturvedi in their respective first match of this IPL. While the Madurai Panthers have won the TNPL once in 2018, the Dindigul based team is yet to win a single title. The game will be played at the Chepauk.
Venue: MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai
Pitch and Weather: 2 games have been played here at this venue so far and both have been deemed a no-result due to heavy rains. But one thing to see is the contrasting scores when the play was possible. While the first game saw the Nellai scoring 168 in 18 overs before rain halting the play, the 2nd match was the total opposite. The iDream Tiruppur Tamizhans were struggling at 64/7 in 16.2 overs when rain played spoilsport. We can expect a middling total, one that we saw in the IPL 2021.
The weather is expected to be humid in the evening with a possibility of rain interruption. Temperatures will hover around 3-32C during game time.
Date and Time: July 22, 2021, 7.30 PM IST
In the absence of off-spinner and captain Ravichandran Ashwin, the onus is on the senior players like R Srinivasan, M Silambarasan, K Mani Bharathy to take the side towards their maiden glory. The player to watch out for will be the opener Hari Nishaanth.
For Seichem, the veteran KB Arun Karthik holds the key. The wicket-keeper batsman played a match-winning role for TN in their successful Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy 2021. Also, spinner Aushik Srinivas will be relied upon by the Panthers.
K Vishal Vaidhya, S Arun, Advaith Sharma, R Suthesh, S Swaminathan, L Vignesh, R Srinivasan, RS Mokit Hariharan, S Lokeshwar, C Hari Nishaanth, C Ashwin, MS Sanjay, V Lakshman, K Mani Bharathy, AR Siva Murugan, Gurjapneet Singh, R Vimal Khumar, Kishan Kumar S, Vigneshwaran S, Ravichandran Ashwin, R Vivek, and M Silambarasan.

Both sides are equally placed going into this contest. It should be a cracking game of cricket if the rain doesn’t play any significant role.
