Shahrukh Khan is a good captaincy pick for this contest.
Dindigul Dragons will take on Lyca Kovai Kings in the Eliminator encounter of Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2021. The Dragons have been impressive this season and would be raring to clinch this fixture. With 4 wins and 3 losses, they finished 3rd in the standings with 8 points.
As far as Lyca Kovai Kings are concerned, they blew hot and cold in the league stage of the competition. They secured a place in the playoffs only after defeating Nellai Royal Kings by 7 runs in a must-win game. Overall, they won three of their seven games and finished fourth in the table.
