The sixth season of the Tamil Nadu Premier League will kick off on Monday, May 12 with Lyca Super Kings taking on Karaikudi Karaikal in the opening game of this season. The one-month-long TNPL 2023 will be played from June 12 to July 12 with eight franchises from eight districts in Tamil Nadu fighting for the title.
TNPL league stage games will be played at Coimbatore, Dindigul, Salem, and Tirunelveli with the opener in Coimbatore and the season finale in Tirunelveli. Like the IPL 2023, the impact player will be applied for the first time here as well and it will also see DRS for the first time in the tournament's history too. Many eyeballs are on this tournament now with it giving many success stories over the last few years, here are five players to look out for at TNPL 2023:
1) Varun Chakravarthy
The India international will be in action for the Dindigul Dragons, who bought him for 6.75 lacs at the auction. Along with Ravichandran Ashwin who was retained, they will make a lethal duo for the Dragons. Chakravarthy had a good IPL with KKR even though the team did not qualify for the playoffs as he picked up 20 wickets in 14 games at an economy rate of 8.15. The mystery spinner had a mediocre TNPL last year with the Siechem Madurai Panthers picking up eight wickets in seven games at an economy rate of 7.08. He will be looking to take his IPL 2023 form into the TNPL and guide the Dragons to their first title.
