The Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2021 kicked off earlier this week on Monday (July 19) amid a great sense of excitement and anticipation among fans.
Unfortunately, though, the opening game of the tournament between Lyca Kovai Kings and Salem Spartans was ruined by bad weather and ended in a no result.
The fixture scheduled for the following day where Chepauk Super Gillies took the field against IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans suffered the same fate.
Since then, however, the weather in Chennai has been kinder to the TNPL 2021 and we have had three back to back outright results. Let us have a look at the wicket-taking charts from the matches played in the TNPL 2021 so far.
