The
Shriram
Capital
Tamil
Nadu
League
final
at
the
MA
Chidambaram
Stadium
on
Independence
Day
could
not
have
asked
for
a
better
climax
after
intense
action
spread
over
31
match
days.

So,
the
big
question
is
can
Ruby
Trichy
Warriors
turn
on
their
style
one
more
time
and
go
past
Chepauk
Super
Gillies?
They
definitely
have
done
everything
right
to
get
to
the
final,
including
two
victories
over
Chepauk,
so
the
odds
should
be
stacked
in
their
favour.
But
their
opponents
are
past
masters
who
know
how
to
deal
with
‘big
match
pressure’ and
it
is
that
ability
that
gives
them
an
edge
in
this
contest.
They
displayed
their
big
match
experience
in
Qualifier
2
to
demolish
Dindigul
Dragons
that
has
put
them
in
the
right
frame
of
mind
to
make
a
run
for
their
third
title.

The
defending
champions
also
possess
a
squad
that
has
some
of
the
most
seasoned
players
of
the
tournament
in
wicketkeeper
batsman
Narayan
Jagadeesan,
captain
Kaushik
Gandhi,
left-arm
spinner
Ravisrinivasan
Sai
Kishore,
all-rounders
Sathish
Rajagopal
and
Sonu
Yadav,
all
of
whom
have
played
a
winning
hand
at
least
once
in
their
march
to
the
final.

In
contrast,
Trichy
are
a
bunch
of
journeymen
who
are
playing
their
biggest
match
ever.
A
huge
challenge
for
most
of
them
will
be
to
deal
with
the
pressure
of
playing
a
final.
It
is
here
that
the
experience
of
captain
Rahil
Shah,
senior
batsman
Adithya
Ganesh
and
all-rounder
P
Saravana
Kumar
can
come
in
handy.
The
trio
has
been
key
to
the
team’s
fairytale
run
to
the
final
and
they
will
have
to
step
up
one
more
time
to
end
their
campaign
on
a
high.

What
makes
Trichy’s
march
exciting
is
their
ability
to
seize
the
crucial
moments
and
capitalise
on
it.
Nidhish
Rajagopal
and
Adithya
have
been
their
batting
mainstays
while
Saravana
Kumar,
pacer
Murugan
Poiyamozhi
and
the
young
left-arm
spinner
M
Mathivanan
alongwith
their
captain
have
manned
the
bowling
department
pretty
well.

There
is
not
much
to
choose
from
their
past
results
as
Chepauk
has
won
four
of
their
eight
meetings
while
Trichy
has
won
three,
two
of
which
have
come
this
season
(one
game
was
abandoned).

Rahil
Shah
believes
in
staying
rooted
and
does
not
want
his
team
to
be
consumed
by
the
pressure
of
playing
a
final.
“I
am
excited
obviously
because
it’s
the
final
of
TNPL
but
I
want
to
be
grounded.
We
still
are
the
underdogs,
as
we
have
been
called.
We
will
just
take
it
as
a
normal
game
and
give
it
our
120
per
cent
and
see
what
happens,”
he
said
ahead
of
the
final.

Chepauk
head
coach
Hemang
Badani
warns
his
side
will
be
going
for
the
jugular.
“We
will
come
hard
again
and
we
will
do
better
and
come
back
to
do
what
we
are
supposed
to
do.
We
have
been
in
three
finals
and
this
would
be
the
fourth
while
this
is
the
first
for
Ruby
Trichy
Warriors
so
I
think
we
probably
have
the
experience
and
composure
of
playing
the
finals.
They
might
feel
the
heat
and
I’m
sure
that
whoever
plays
good
cricket
on
the
day,
will
be
the
winner,”
he
said.

At
stake
is
not
just
the
champions
tag
but
also
a
purse
of
Rs
50
lakh
for
the
winners,
while
the
runner-up
will
receive
Rs
30
lakh.


Players
to
watch
out


Narayan
Jagadeesan
(CSG):

Wicketkeeper
batsman,
who
is
renowned
for
his
power
play
at
the
top.
More
importantly,
has
the
ability
to
bat
the
full
quota
of
20
overs.
Not
for
nothing
is
this
26-year-old
opener
the
highest
run-getter
in
the
tournament
(1598
runs).


Rajagopal
Sathish
(CSG):

Don’t
go
by
his
age,
this
40-year-old
can
give
a
run
for
the
money
to
the
sprightliest
of
youngsters.
The
go-to
man
during
a
crisis,
this
veteran
all-rounder
is
equally
effective
with
bat
and
ball.


Ravisrinivasan
Sai
Kishore
(CSG):

He
has
literally
stood
tall
among
the
spinners.
The
lanky
left-arm
spinner
makes
his
presence
felt
in
every
game,
which
has
made
him
the
highest
wicket-taker
in
the
tournament
(54
wickets).


Nidhish
Rajagopal
(RTW):

This
21-year-old
has
shown
remarkable
composure
in
leading
Trichy’s
run
charge.
It
reflects
in
the
tournament’s
batting
charts
as
well,
where
the
left-hander
is
placed
third
having
tallied
280
runs.


P
Saravana
Kumar
(RTW):

The
leading
bowler
not
only
for
Trichy
but
also
in
the
tournament
with
13
scalps.
The
32-year-old
pacer
from
Coimbatore
has
led
the
Trichy
attack
admirably
picking
crucial
wickets
at
the
top
and
also
in
his
final
spells.
He
is
an
effective
lower
order
batsman
too,
which
makes
him
a
special
player.


Murugan
Poiyamozhi
(RTW):

An
immensely
effective
medium-pacer,
who
mixes
his
pace
with
telling
effect.
In
five
matches,
this
30-year-old
has
claimed
eight
wickets
at
an
impressive
economy
rate
of
6.35.
