Tamil Nadu is one of the favourites the entire competition. Given their form and roster, TN is currently on course to top the table as well with seven wins from seven games. They face Madhya Pradesh in what is a potential mismatch at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium on Saturday. Riding on Baba Aparajith’s stellar all-round performance, Tamil Nadu made short work of Railways to stay at the top of the table. On the other hand, Madhya Pradesh comes into this game on the back of a tough loss against Jammu and Kashmir as they lost by just four runs. With the Sawai Mansingh Stadium proving to be a happy hunting ground for the likes of Dinesh Karthik and Vijay Shankar, Tamil Nadu is expected to make short work of MP although they can not be considered as pushovers.

The weather is all clear for this game with clear skies on the forecast. There should be some swing on offer due to the cloudy conditions at the ground on Wednesday with the temperatures bound to be in the 30s
A high-scoring game is expected on Saturday with the average first innings score here this year being 252. Pacers should have a major say with the spinners also coming into the play once the ball gets old.
Predicted Playing XI:
Murali Vijay and Baba Aparajith are must haves in the fantasy side considering their form for Tamil Nadu. Dinesh Karthik is also in very good form with the TN captain scoring 284 runs at a strike rate of 124. Rajat Patidar and Anand Bias are picked in the fantasy team while the in-form trio of K Vignesh, Avesh Khan and T Natarajan should round the fantasy team with the pacers bound to get some help early on.
