Lyca Kovai Kings Look to Continue Winning Streak

Lyca Kovai Kings will be full of confidence going into their clash against Dindigul Dragons on Sunday after registering back to back wins in the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL).

Bowling first, Lyca Kovai Kings restricted Ballsy Trichy to a below par total of 117/5. The bowling effort was led by M Siddharth who finished with impressive figures of 4 overs, 13 runs and 3 wickets. The skipper Shah Rukh Khan also impressed with the ball, taking 2 wickets while conceding only 15 runs in his 3 over spell. Yudheeswaran also requires special mention, conceding only 8 runs at an economy rate of 2 with 16 dot balls in his full quota of overs.

Chasing the small target, Lyca Kovai lost two early wickets but Sujay S took centre stage with a match winning knock. He remained unbeaten on 72 off just 59 balls, hitting 7 fours and 2 sixes in a superb display of batting. Lyca Kovai lost wickets at regular intervals – Suresh Kumar J for 9 in the 5th over with the score at 31 and Sai Sudharsan for 7 in the 7th over at 45.

Sujay’s performance with the bat was the highlight of the match for Lyca Kovai Kings as he guided them to victory after absorbing the initial pressure of wickets. His sensible innings helped Lyca Kovai achieve the target with 11 balls to spare.

The 2 wins will have boosted the team’s confidence and they will now look to make it 3 in a row against Dindigul Dragons. However, Dindigul will pose a tough challenge as they are currently placed 1st on the points table having won all the matches they have played so far.
