Two teams in the stellar form right now, the Chepauk Super Gillies and VB Kanchi Veerans could take the top spot in the points table upscaling Dindigul. Apart from their opening game against Lyca, the Veerans have barely put a wrong foot. Skipper Baba Aparajith and Siddharth scored fifties for Kanchi against the Patriots, propelling the side to a 58-run win.

The batting conditions at Dindigul might not be as good as Tirunelveli, but these players are well capable of putting up something huge. The Super Gillies have had a four-day rest getting into this fixture and the performances of Gopinath and Harish Kumar from their previous games still remain fresh in their memory. This will be a battle of two very strong units, who will take the game all the way down the wire.
