NRK vs DD – Match 21 of TNPL 2021 – Dream11 Team, Predictions, and Tips

This article will talk about the probable XIs for both teams and continue with the Dream11 predictions and the winning fantasy team for the 21st game of the TNPL between the Nellai Royal Kings and Dindigul Dragons that is scheduled to take place on the 3rd of August 2021.

The last-placed Nellai Royal Kings led by Baba Aparajith will take on the Dindigul Dragons who are in the 2nd spot with 3 wins on Tuesday. The Royal Kings will hope to get their 2nd win of this edition in their 5th game.

Dindigul Dragons had a rare poor game this season in the last game where they lost to the Chepauk Super Gillies by 24 runs. Courtesy of a quickfire 73-run opening stand of just 46 balls from Chepauk’s Narayan Jagadeesan(45) and Kaushik Gandhi(40), they managed to reach 159/7 batting first, despite R Silambarsan’s economical spell of 2/18. WIth the chase, the Dragons didn’t get going as they lost their way despite a good start from Hari Nishaanth who made 39.

The Nellai Royals Kings’ last game was marred by rain as they didn’t get to bat. The King’s bowling first had reduced the Madurai Panthers to 144/8 in 19.2 overs before the rains played spoilsport on Saturday. A Davidson had figures of 2/17 while the rest of the bowlers bowled decently when the play was interrupted.

Match Details

Venue: M Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai

Pitch and Weather: The pitch of M Chidambaram Stadium has looked unpredictable so far. Few games have been low-scoring, while there have high-scoring ones as well. This Chennai surface has something for everyone involved. Batsman got runs after getting in, while the pacers have found assistance due to overcast conditions and spinners get help here most of the time. It will be another game between a total of 150 to 160. The weather will be cloudy with the temperatures touching 32C.

Date and Time: August 3, 2021, 7.30 PM IST

Probable Playing XIs

Nellai Royal Kings would most likely go with the same team that played the Siechem Madurai Panthers on Saturday. The bowling unit did well to keep the score to 144 and we don’t know how the match would have gone if we had a full game.

On the other hand, the Dragons despite suffering their first defeat in 4 games will go in with the same team. Hari Nisaanth continued his good form with the bat while Silambarasan was impressive with the ball.
