The Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2022 got off to a fiery start with the clash between Chepauk Super Gillies and Nellai Royal Kings on Thursday in Tirunelveli. Two Tamil Nadu stars, Baba Aparajith and N Jagadeesan, engaged in a heated exchange. Aparajith ran out Jagadeesan at the non-striker's end as the latter backed up too much.

Even though the bowler was well within his rights to whip off the bails, Jagadeesan wasn't a happy man. Furious, he showed his middle finger multiple times before walking back to the dugout.

Fans on Twitter slammed N Jagadeesan for showing his frustration despite being run out fair and square. They felt Aparajith was well within his rights to run Jagadeesan out. The off-spinner had pulled out of his run-up once to give Jagadeesan an indirect warning.

Here are some of the reactions:

Baba Aparajith runs out Jagadeesan at non striker’s end on his delivery stride. Out as per the laws. Jagadeesan was not too pleased at all
Ashwin, Aparajith - name starts with A.Jos, Jagadeesan - name starts with J.the cases of bowler running out batsman at the non Striker's end in IPL and TNPL. 😀 😀

TNPL delivers a Super Over in first game

The TNPL 2022 opener between the Nallai Royal Kings (NRK) and the Chepauk Super Gillies (CSG) produced a thrilling finish. The game went right down to a Super Over.

Batting first, NRK were in deep trouble at 27/3 at one stage. However, L Suryaprakash and Sanjay Yadav got together and steadied the ship. While Suryaprakash played second-fiddle, Yadav played an incredible knock of 87* off just 47 balls. His stunning innings took his team to 184/4 in their 20 overs.

In reply, CSG skipper Kaushik Gandhi held the fort from one end. However, wickets tumbled at the other and the game got really interesting towards the end. Harish Kumar played a fantastic cameo to take it to the Super Over.

N Jagadeesan got another chance to bat and pumped a six straight down the ground. However, his team scored just nine runs and that wasn't really going to challenge NRK as they registered their first points of the season.
