WI vs SL | 2nd Test: Karunaratne, Thirimanne keep Windies at bay; Test series ends without a result
3 Apr 2021
Nellai Royal Kings will take on Ruby Trichy Warriors in the third encounter of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) in Chennai.
The Tamil Nadu Government had officially given approval for holding the TNPL earlier but the competition is being held behind closed doors without any spectators in the stands. The 2020 edition of the TNPL was cancelled due to Covid-19 outburst in the country.
Baba Indrajith and Baba Aparajith are the two prominent names who might feature in this clash for Kings.
Earlier, Warriors suffered a blow after Murali Vijay and Anirudha Srikkanth pulled out citing personal reasons. The two players were replaced by Varun Totadri and S. Kesav Krishna. “Due to unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances, we couldn’t get both the stalwarts (Vijay and Anirudha) available for the tournament. We needed certain gaps to be filled so that’s one of the reasons why we have gone for the two replacements,” said RTW mentor Sreekumar Nair.
