Power Players for Kovai vs Nellai Match
Abhishek Tanwar is yet to go wicketless in this competition, owing to which he is the leading wicket-taker (15). He has taken three consecutive three-wicket hauls in this season.
Barring an innings of 51*, Shahrukh Khan hasn’t fired with the bat. That said, he has made amends with the ball by picking 10 wickets, including the best figures of 4 for 14. The knockout game might just unleash the beast in him!
Sanjay Yadav and J Suresh Kumar have been the two best batters by a distance in this edition. While Yadav has smashed 397 runs at 99, including 4 half-centuries, Suresh Kumar has added 372 runs at 62, including 3 half-centuries. Yadav also tops the six-hitting charts (33).
Not too far behind these two is the talented Baba Aparajith. His recent scores of 33, 37, 92*, 63, and 34 will keep fantasy players interested. He has also been bowling in every game and has 3 wickets to his credit.
Smart Picks for the Match
The only time Balu Surya went wicketless this season was against Nellai. However, he has bagged 10 wickets in 7 games, including the figures of 3 for 19 in Coimbatore.
After an initial stutter, Sai Sudharsan found his way back to consistent run-making. Besides registering two unbeaten fifties, he also got a match-defining 35 against Nellai a few days ago.
NS Harish might have gone wicketless in the last two games, but he still has 9 wickets in the tournament. He has also generated bonus fantasy points through his economical bowling.
Baba Indrajith has not enjoyed a fruitful time this season. He has only managed 82 runs in 6 innings. It remains to be seen if the knockout game will motivate him to give his best.

Kovai vs Nellai Match Preview
Although Nellai topped the points table with only one defeat in seven games, they lost the first qualifier to Chepauk. On the other hand, Kovai have been erratic all through the tournament. That said, they will take confidence from the fact that they beat Nellai in the league stages a few days ago.
