The defending champions Madurai Panthers will be playing their opening game against Jone Tuti Patriots at NOR Colege ground, Dindigul on Saturday.
There would be a lot of expectations from Madurai panters after they stunned everyone when they lifted the trophy last year by crushing down Dindigul Dragons by 7 wickets in the last season.
Meanwhile, patriots finished 5th on the points table with four wins in seven games. We hope them to have a much better season this year.
The match is set to begin at 07:15 PM IST.
The pitch at Dindigul is completely a batting-friendly one. High scorers are expected at this venue. The spinners will have an opportunity in the second half of the match.
