LYC vs KAR Dream 11, the 22nd match of the Tamil Nadu T20, will be played at the MCA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk, Chennai on 4th August 2019 at 7:15 PM IST. While LYC, with two wins and three loses in five matches, can still fancy their chances to reach playoffs, the tournament is largely over for KAR (one win and four loses in five matches). It will be a do-or-die match for the Kings who have statistics on their side. They have beaten Kaalais in three of the last five matches played against each other.
Match: 22th Match, LYC vs KAR Tamil Nadu T20
Venue: MCA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk, Chennai
Date & Time: 4td August 2019, 7:15 PM IST
Lyca Kovai Kings had lost their last match Siechem Madurai Panthers and that might affect their self-belief. Moreover, the bowlers, sans S Ajith Ram and K Vignesh, looked ineffective on NPR’s track. However, A Mukund’s responsible innings (50 of 38 balls) is a positive from the last game. The openers had also got good starts but then they let it go. Though KAR looked unimpressive this season of TNPL, LYC need good all-round performance to don the winning hat.

This has been quite a heartbreaking season for Kaalais. Amid a series of team changes, they could only manage to win a single game. Their batting and bowling both failed miserably. They were badly bitten in their last game against Tuti Patriots. Except for S Anirudha (173 from 5 games), all other batsmen have disappointed throughout the series. On bowlers’ front, only S Sam (6 wickets in 5 matches) could cause some trouble to the opponent batsmen. Now that they have nothing to lose from here, they can go for a kill to earn themselves a consolation win.

Anirudha is the only batsman who scored some runs for KAR. Though he got out cheaply in the last match, he is expected to play a responsible innings in this match. Similarly, A Mukund has played a couple of good innings (147 in five innings) for LYC. A Srinaath, who is scoring with an average 53.5, is another bankable player for LYC vs KAR Dream11 Team. R Rajkumar and M Bafna have the ability to perform with both bat and ball. Coming on the bowlers, K Vignesh has picked wickets for LYC when needed.
Captain: S Anirudha
