Both Madurai and Kanchi Veerans have won and lost one out of their two matches so far. However, Kanchi Veerans willl look to feed on the confidence that they would have accumulated after a dominating 110-run win against Karaikudi Kaalai in their last match. On the other hand, Madurai will look to get back to winning ways after losing to Dindigul Dragons a few days ago.

Fantasy Tips and Suggestions
Wicket-keeper: S Lokeshwar from the VB Kanchi Veerans will be the pick from the wicket-keeper's section. He scored a fifty in the first match.
Batsmen: The batting picks will include Kanchi Veerans' Rajagopal Sathish and Sanjay Yadav. Yadav scored a spectacular 95-run knock against Karaikudi Kaalai. From the Madurai side, captain Arun Karthik and Sarath Raj can be picked.
All-rounders: Left-arm spinner Rahil Shah is in good form and that makes his pick a no-brainer. Similarly, Veerans' captain Aparajith should be picked even though he hasn't hit the straps as of now.
Bowlers: The bowling choices will also be dominated by Madurai players. Abhishek Tanwar, Kiran Akash and R Mithun will be the choices. The lone bowler from Kanchi Veerans will be Rangaraj Suthesh.
Captain: The captaincy choice for this Dream 11 side will be Arun Karthik. The other choice to get double points would be R Sathish. Vice-captaincy options would be Sanjay Yadav, Kiran Akash or Baba Aparajith.
