IDTT vs DID Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Jun 28, 2023
In the 20th game of Tamil Nadu Premier League for the 2023 season, Dindigul Dragons are all set to take on IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans at the venue of SCF Cricket Ground in Salem. These two teams have had to face contrasting fortunes in the TNPL so far. The Tiruppur team has bounced back in the competition with the bat and has won a couple of matches in a row. But the Dindigul Dragons team appears to be struggling with both bat and ball. The Dindigul outfit was bowled out for 147 runs in their last game when they were chasing a big score of 207 runs.
Before this match, Dindigul Dragons defeated the Chepauk Super Gillies by a wafer-thin margin of one run. The side led by Ashwin was in trouble early when they lost 5 wickets for 63 runs. Their top-order batting has collapsed on a couple of occasions in a row now. The Tiruppur Tamizhans on the other hand put together a score of 201 runs on the board in their game while batting first. Sai Kishore had a wonderful IPL and is looking pretty comfortable in the number 3 position. The opening batsman and batting all-rounder S Radhakrishnan has also appeared to be in great touch. After their loss to Super Gillies, the Tiruppur Tamizhans have now turned their luck around to become a force to reckon with.

IDTT vs DID Team Previews
IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans
After receiving back-to-back losses in their TNPL campaign for 2023 the Tiruppur Tamizhans have turned things around and have got back to winning ways with 2 wins in a row. The ITT batting performance has improved quite a bit in their recent outings with their middle order getting back their rhythm. Although S Radhakrishnan has been in great form after he came in as a replacement for NS Chaturved at the top of the order, some other middle-order batters are also looking good. Vijay Shankar and Sai Kishore had played for Gujarat Titans in the IPL. They played some crucial knocks in the competition.
These batters bring plenty of experience to their teams. Two other batters have also looked promising. They are Balchandra Anirudh and Rajendra Vivek. They can be adjusted anywhere in the batting order. These players have played some useful innings in their recent games and their presence in the middle order adds more depth to the Tamizhans' batting order. In their last game, Anirudh hammered 51 runs from 25 balls while batting in the number 5 slot. This innings was instrumental in the Tiruppur side posting a score of 201 runs on the board.
Rajendra Vivek hit 21 runs from 13 balls in a successful run chase while batting in the number 4 position against Nellai Royal Kings. The Nellai side has displayed improvement in all sections and not just the batting department. They have some very good bowlers in their ranks. P Bhuvaneswaran picked up a fifer that was vital to bowl out the Nellai team for 124 runs. He picked up another 4-wicket haul in the next match against Ba11sy Trichy when defending a score of 201 runs. Other key bowlers for Tamizhans in this game are S Ajith Ram, G Periyaswamy, and R Sai Kishore.

After winning 3 games in a row, the team led by R Ashwin had to endure their first loss of the season. The Dindigul top-order batting has been struggling for a lot of time now. These problems at the top of the order cost them the match. During their victory over Seichem Madurai Panthers, the Dindigul Dragons chased a small total of 124 runs easily while losing just three wickets in the powerplay. After this, they were struggling at 63 for 5 in the 10th over in their next game. But C Sarath Kumar, Suboth Bhait, and Adithya Ganesh batted well in the lower order to stage a comeback and set a score of 170 runs.
In their last game when the Dindigul outfit had to endure their first loss of the season, the opening batter Shivam Singh hit 61 runs from 42 balls. However, the Dragons once again lost half of their team for 51 runs only. The Dindigul opener Rahul will have to step up and play a better inning to ensure that Dindigul did not lose many wickets in their powerplay. Another prominent batter that is struggling for runs in the middle order is Baba Indrajith. Overall, Dindigul Dragons appear to be in the doldrums as far as having a set batting lineup is concerned.
The significant wicket-taking bowlers for Dindigul are Varun Chakravarthy, R Ashwin, and Sarvana Kumar. Both Chakravarthy and Kumar were pretty expensive in their last match when Ashwin won the toss and decided to bowl first. These 3 bowlers have to bounce back and provide breakthroughs against a tough opposition such as Tiruppur Tamizhans. The Dindigul Dragons team played and lost their last game against Kovai Kings by a big margin of 59 runs. All bowlers except the skipper Ashwin went for a lot of runs.

IDTT vs DID Toss Prediction
If you look at the record of four games played earlier at the venue, the team batting first has won 2 out of the 4 matches played here. The last couple of games have also seen many runs being scored at the venue. The Dindigul side has a lot of problems and will not be too keen to take on a huge score. Batting first will be ideal for the Dindigul Dragons and then they can back the spinners to spin them to a win. The Tiruppur team on the other hand will look to repeat their good performance in their last contest at the venue.

Pitch and Conditions
This cricket match will be played at the SCF Ground in the city of Salem. Any team that bats first at the venue will look to set a target of over 180 runs. The last two games saw the team batting first crossing the 200-run barrier at the ground. On both occasions, the team chasing the target fell short of the target. A score in the region of 180 to 190 runs can be considered to be at par at this venue.
The surface on offer at the SCF Ground is an excellent batting pitch. All batters playing here will enjoy playing their shots on this ground. The ball will come onto the bat nicely and spinners will hold the key in the 2nd innings. Weather for this game is expected to be cloudy and you can get temperatures in the region of 34 degrees.
IDTT vs DID Betting Tips
The Dindigul Dragons team has secured more victories in the competition than IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans. They are also in a better position in the points table. But they have experienced problems in their batting order in recent games. A poor run of form was evident in the batting department during their last game. This makes the team vulnerable against Tiruppur Tamizhans' bowling attack. The IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans on the other hand are on a roll at the moment and look to be favorites for this match. But we expect Dindigul Dragons to bounce back in the game and win it.
Bonus Cricket Bets
Vijay Shankar has been scoring runs for a while now even since when 2023 IPL was being played. You can bet on him to score more than 25 runs in the contest.
Although Baba Indrajith has not scored as many runs as expected of him in the competition, you can bet on him to come good in this game and score a fifty.
The Dindigul Dragons' bowling attack appears to be far more potent than the Tamizhans one. You can expect one of their bowlers to become a leading bowler in the match.
