Tomorrow, in TNPL’s 28th match, the two teams who will be facing each other for the second game will be the Dindigul Dragons and Salem Spartans. The Dragons have not had a favourable season of the TNPL so far and have lost four games out of their six in the season. Their last game against the Chepauk Super Gillies resulted in a defeat of 5 wickets because of which they are in the sixth position in the points table.
On the other hand, Salem Spartans have even had an even worst season this year as compared to the Dragons. The team has not been able to win a single game in all of their six outings this year and are out of the tournament. They will just finish off their final round of league games and exit the tournament. If they even win one or two league games, it will not be enough to help them to get ahead.
So, it will be quite interesting to see which of the two teams emerges as the winner of tomorrow’s competition.
The pitch at Salem may assist spinners during the middle overs of the game and the ball will come on to the bat in the second innings which means that the two teams will prefer chasing tomorrow.
DD vs SS, Match 28 Probable Playing XI:
The Dragons have won two games so they have a better chance of winning tomorrow’s game as compared to the Salem Spartans. They just need to step up their game in order to make it to the playoffs this season.

For the Spartans, the season is more or less over this year. They should now focus on playing better and hopefully manage to eke out a win or two before they bow out of the season. The Spartans should try to end their campaign on a high this year.
