TNPL 2021: Final – Ruby Trichy Warriors vs Chepauk Super Gillies Preview, predicted XIs, match prediction, live streaming, weather forecast and pitch report

The Chepauk Super Gillies and Ruby Trichy Warriors will lock horns in the final of the ongoing TNPL on Sunday, August 15, at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

The Warriors, captained by Rahil Shah, finished the league stage at the top of the points table. The team also became the first to qualify for the final after it defeated the Chepauk Super Gilles by five wickets in the Qualifier 1.

The fact that they are on a four-match winning streak should stand them in good stead. The Warriors won the Qualifier 1 after chasing down 154 with one delivery left.

Super Gilles, also two-time champions, have had to huff and puff their way to the final. After winning four out of seven games in the league stage, they went down to the Warriors in the match on Tuesday, August 10.

However, the eight-wicket win against Dindigul Dragons in the Qualifier 2 should keep the Gillies’ confidence high. They chased down 104 with 24 balls to spare.
