Tuti Patriots Vs VB Kanchi Veerans, Tamil Nadu Premier League, 15th Match
July 30th 2019, 7.15 PM IST

Fantasy Tips and Suggestions
Wicket-keeper: Suresh Lokeshwar will be the lone option from the wicket-keepers section. He has been in really good form and comes at a price of 8.5 credits.
Batsmen: S Siddharth, the opening batsman for Kanchi Veerans can be a good gamble. Rajagopal Sathish and Sanjay Yadav, Kanchi Veerans' explosive middle-over duo will be handy picks for the Dream 11 team. For the Tuti Patriots, opener Akshay Srinivasan has been the only consistent batsman so far. So, he will be a no-brainer.
All-rounders: Just like the wicket-keepers section, there is just one worthy player in the form of Baba Aparajith.
Bowlers: The bowling picks will have two players each from Tuti Patriots and VB Kanchi Veerans. Kanchi Veerans' medium-pacer R Silambarasan took a five-wicket haul in the previous match while the likes of M Ganesh Moorthi, K Gowtham Thamarai Kannan and B Senthil Nathan have put in consistent performances.
Captain: Rajagopal Sathish will be the captain while S Lokeshwar can be vice-captain. Others options for C/ VC would be Sanjay Yadav, Aparajith and Akshay Srinivasan.
Fantasy Suggestion #1: S Lokeshwar (VC), R Sathish (C), S Siddharth, Sanjay Yadav, Akshay Srinivasan, Subramania Siva, Baba Aparajith, Gowtham Thamarai Kannan, R Silambarasan, M Ganesh Moorthi, B Senthil Nathan.
Fantasy Suggestion #2: S Lokeshwar, R Sathish, Vishal Vaidhya, Akshay Srinivasan, Subramania Siva, Sanjay Yadav (VC), Baba Aparajith (C), Gowtham Thamarai Kannan, R Silambarasan, Tamil Kumaran, B Senthil Nathan.
