Tirunelveli, August 8: VB Kanchi Veerans will have to go all out for victory against Ruby Trichy Warriors in their 4th Sankar Cement Tamil Nadu Twenty20 Premier League game at the India Cements Ltd - Sankar Nagar Ground, Tirunelveli to qualify for the Playoffs.

A win for VBKV will see them finish at par with Lyca Kovai Kings (0.255) on points (eight) but their better net run rate (0.575) will help them sail through. A defeat will help LKK make the top four.

RTW have nothing much to gain from this except that a victory will help them avoid the last place. Their batting has been their weakest link with only Murali Vijay shining through with 359 runs. But even he could not save them from crashing to three defeats in the four matches he played this season.
