SMP vs CSG – Match 22 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 22nd game of the TNPL between the Siechem Madurai Panthers and Chepauk Super Gillies that is scheduled to take place on the 4th of August 2021.

The Siechem Madurai Panthers who are in 3rd place after 2 wins in 5 games will take on the defending champions Chepauk Super Gillies on Wednesday. The Kaushik Gandhi-led Chepauk has won 2 games out of the 4 they played so far and is in the 4th position in the points table.

Super Gillies won their last game against the Dindugal Dragons by 24 runs on Sunday to make it 2 on 2. Batting first, the CSG made 159/7 thanks to a 46-ball 73 opening stand from Narayan Jagadeesan(40) and Kaushik Gandhi(45). This helped the total propelling past 150 despite the fact most of the middle-order struggled to get going. Only Uthirasamy Sasidev who made 29 from 24 managed to go past 15 runs in the CSG batting line-up. In the end, the score was more than enough as they restricted the Dragons to 135/8 courtesy of a 4/30 from the returning left-arm spinner Sai Kishore who just came back from the Sri Lanka tour.

Like the Suoer Gillies, the Seichem Madurai Panthers also gained a win in their last match and it was by a huge margin of 81 runs against the Tiruppur Thamizhans. Batting first, the Panthers made a mammoth 184/4 in their quota of overs with 4 of the top-5 going past 30 runs and at a fast pace. Their skipper Chaturved top-scored with 41 from 23 balls. Their bowlers were even more clinical as they bowled out Tiruppur in under 18 overs for just 103. R Silambarasan, V Gowtham, and Aushik Srinivas picked 3 wickets apiece.

Match Details

Venue: M Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai

Pitch and Weather: Unlike what we saw in the IPL where the games were generally low-scoring, the surfaces at the Chepauk for the TNPL have been different this far. The Batsman got runs after getting in, while the pacers have found assistance and spinners get help here most of the time.

It will be another game between a total of 140 to 160. The weather will be cloudy and there is a chance of rain playing its part. The temperatures will be hovering around the uncomfortable mark of 32-33C.

Date & Time: August 4, 7.30 PM IST 

Probable Playing XIs

All the top-5 of Madurai Panthers batting line-up got starts in their victorious game against the Tiruppur Thamizans and would want a similar batting performance in this coming match. Their bowlers also were on the mark and there is no reason for them to change the line-up against the defending champions.

N Jagadeesan has been in top form with the bat for the Chepuak Gillies and found support at last from his opening partner and captain cum skipper Kaushik Gandhi. But the rest of the batting line-ups’ lack of scores remains a concern for them. In the bowling department, they will be delighted with the return of Sandeep Warrier and Sai Kishore.

Fantasy Tips 

Batsmen: Balachaner Anirudh has been among the runs for the Madurai Panthers in the last few games in this TNPL. Along with him, Madurai’s skipper N Chaturved who top-scored for them in the last match can also feature in the fantasy XI. CSG’s skipper Kaushik Gandhi can also be picked in the fantasy section as he is back to form at the top of the order. Uthirasamy Sasidev is the last batting option.

Wicket-Keeper: Narayan Jagadeesan has been exceptional at the top of the order for the Chepauk team and has scored 2 half-centuries in his last 3 innings including a 40 in the last game. 

All-rounders: Rajagopal Sathish of Super Gillies has the best figures of a bowler in this TNPL and he is an obvious pick in the fantasy XI. His teammates, S Harish Kumar did well for the Gillies in this TNPL both with the bat and ball. Finally, Jagadeesan Kousik from Madurai can be the 3rd all-rounder. He has taken 6 wickets in the 5 games while also scoring 146 runs with the bat.

Bowlers: R Silambarasan from Madurai Panthers is a genuine wicket-taker and his teammate Aushik Srinivas can also be picked. R Sai Kishore is the last player in the fantasy XI and he is a must in it after his exceptional performance in the last game.
