Press Release


Former Indian captain MS Dhoni and Australian legend Matthew Hayden will go head to head in a six-hitting competition before the inaugural TNPL match tomorrow. Both players, who played for the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL, made a name for themselves as big hitters during their respective careers.

The Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2017 will commence on Saturday, July 22, with the defending champions Albert TuTi Patriots taking on the Dindigul Dragons at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. A star-studded six-hitting contest ahead of the game will kick off the second edition of the tournament. The competition should be an intense one as Hayden finished his career with an incredible 182 while Dhoni has already scored an astonishing 322 big ones in his career.

India cricketers MS Dhoni, Mohit Sharma, S Badrinath, Pawan Negi, former Australia batsman Matthew Hayden and Tamil Nadu batsman Anirudha Srikkanth will face a bowling machine and attempt to clear the ropes. India Internationals L Balaji, M Vijay and Tamil Nadu all-rounder C Ganapathy will also be present at the event, which is sponsored by Chennai Super Kings Cricket Limited.

The six-hitting contest will begin at 6 pm and will end by 7 pm. The opening show will be followed by toss and the match will start at 7.15 pm.
