The sixth edition of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) kicked off on Thursday as defending champions Chennai Super Gillies (CSG) took on the Nellai Royal Kings (NRK). The first match ended on the wire as Royal Kings won the match in the Super Over after the scores were tied. Royal Kings chased a 10-point target with a ball to spare in the decider.
Earlier, Chennai Super Gillies had set a target of 185 runs, and with five needed to win on the final ball, S Harish Kumar smoked a four to force a tie.
In the match, tempers flared when CSG wicketkeeper and Tamil Nadu senior player Narayan Jagadeesan was exhausted as he tried to drop back to the non-attacking side by Baba Aparajith.
Jagadeesan was playing great, but this sudden turn of events didn’t go over too well with the batter as he walked away after making a middle finger gesture.

Jagadeesan has featured in 26 First Class, 36 List A and 45 T20 for Tamil Nadu. Apart from this, the wicket-beater keeper is also part of Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Chennai Super Kings since 2018. He has made two appearances this season.
Back in action, NRK fly-half Laxmesha Suryaprakash (62) and Sanjay Yadav (87*) played with the bat as they propelled the Royal Kings to a solid 184/4 in 20 overs.
In response, Super Gillies captain Kaushik Gandhi (64) was the team’s top scorer. S Harish Kumar (26* from 12 balls) contributed with a useful cameo to level the score and the match went to the Super Over.
Over the years, the TNPL has been a breeding ground for several players as the IPL scouts keep a close eye and good performances see these players land lucrative contracts in the IPL.
