Courtesy of finishing at number one and two respectively in the Tamil Nadu Premier League 2023 points table, Lyca Kovai Kings (LKK) and Dindigul Dragons (DD) will take on each other in the first Qualifier of the competition. Notably, both teams won six out of their seven matches in the league phase and thus, an exciting affair is expected when these two teams take on each other on July 7, at the SCF Cricket Ground in Salem.

Meanwhile, despite Ravichandran Ashwin being unavailable at the moment due to national duty, Dindigul seem to be a very strong unit. Skipper Baba Indrajit is in remarkable form at the moment, while Varun Chakravarthy has been a force to reckon with. Subodh Bhati too has done well in the last match and thus, things will not be easy for Lyca in the middle.

However, the Shahrukh Khan-led side has played some phenomenal cricket so far. Stumper-batter Suresh Kumar and youngster B Sachin are in exceptional form with the bat while Manimaran Siddharth has done a tremendous job with the ball. Valliappan Yudheeswaran too has impressed and thus an exciting battle between DD batters versus LKK bowlers is expected.
