It might seem as if it has been an eternity since the Dindigul Dragons have taken the field. But they will be back taking on the TUTI Patriots on Saturday after a four-day break. The last time the Dragons played a game in the TNPL 2019, they defeated the Madurai Panthers by a decent margin of 30 runs. N Jagadeesan was the star in that game and scored an unbeaten 87.

With two consecutive wins under their belt already, the Dragons will fancy a hat-trick. However, they’ll have to be careful against the TUTI Patriots who registered a terrific win just a day ago. In a shortened game against the Lyca Kovai Kings, they held onto their nerve and got over the line by a margin of 6 runs. They will look to keep the momentum going forward and get a few more wins under their belt.
