Only one day of the league stage is left in the ongoing edition of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL). However, the spots for the playoffs aren’t confirmed yet. Chepauk Super Gillies is one of the teams, which are competing for a position in the next round. The team has eight points from six matches. The biggest positive for them in their Net Run Rate of +1.367, the highest among the sides.
They had a chance to qualify in the lats game as well but lost to Madurai Panthers by 33 runs. Their next match is against the TUTI Patriots in the first of Friday’s doubleheader. Another defeat could see them in a bit of trouble, though chances of the same are highly unlikely due to their decent Net Run Rate. The Patriots, on the other hand, are already eliminated and would be playing to salvage some pride.
