Dindigul Dragons vs Madhurai Panthers, TNPL Final
So, after five weeks of pulsating action that has seen ebbs and flows rise to accentuating levels, we are finally down to the marquee clash of the tournament- the final. It will be Dindigul Dragons who’ll take on Madhurai Panthers for the right to be called the 2018 TNPL champions.
Venue:- MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai
Match Timings:-Sunday, August 12, 2018, 07:15 PM IST
Dindigul Dragons sealed their final berth with a comprehensive 75-run win over Madhurai Panthers in the first Qualifier after their top-order in Nishanth (57), Jagadeesan (43) and R Vivek (54) helped them post 6-203 in 20 overs. Chasing 204, Madhurai faltered big-time against a bowling performance of the Dindigul bowlers spearheaded by M Mohammed (3-16) and Trilok Nag (2-26).
Madhurai Panthers, shrugged off the blip in Qualifier 01 against Dindigul to put up a clinical performance in the second Qualifier at the expense of Lyca Kovai Kings. They bowled first, and on the back of disciplined performance by the bowlers restricted LYC to 7-125, which was chased down with ease thanks to a 56-ball-79 by Arun Karthik, to seal their place into the finals.
