The TNPL has always been a breeding ground for budding talent, and this year is no exception. What sets this edition apart is the presence of some prominent IPL stars who will grace the tournament with their skills and experience. 

First on the list is Baba Indrajith, who made his IPL debut with the Kolkata Knight Riders in 2022.

Now donning the jersey of the Dindigul Dragons, it will be intriguing to see how Baba unleashes his potential in the heart of Chennai's T20 League.

Another IPL star who will be showcasing his talent in the TNPL is Shahrukh Khan. The Punjab Kings secured his services for a whopping INR 9 crore in the 2022 IPL auction. Khan is known for his explosive batting prowess and he’ll be playing for the Lyca Kovai Kings this season.

Joining the fray is Narayan Jagadeesan, the wicket-keeping batter for the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL. A seasoned campaigner, Jagadeesan will now be seen in action for the Chepauk Super Gillies in the TNPL. With his nimble footwork and astute glovework, he is sure to leave an indelible mark on the tournament.

Last but certainly not least is R Sai Kishore, who made his IPL debut with the victorious Gujarat Titans in 2022. Sai Kishore mesmerized audiences with his spin bowling skills and played a crucial role in his team's success. He’ll now showcase his talents on the TNPL field by playing for Chepauk Super Gillies.

TNPL 2023 Championship Predictions

So far, the favorite to win this year is Chepauk Super Gillies with its strong batting lineup. 

The team has players like Narayan Jagadeesan, Sanjay Yadav, and Uthurusamy Sasidev, who have performed well in previous seasons. In the bowling department, players like M Silambarasan and Harish Kumar are expected to make significant contributions. 

Some cricket fans are also thinking that Lyca Kovai Kings have a great chance this year. The team performed well in the previous season,  finishing at the 4th spot on the table with 4 wins in 7 matches. 

They were also the joint-winners of the season along with Chepauk Super Gillies. The team has key players like Suresh Kumar and Sai Sudharsan, who performed well in the previous season as top run-scorers.

The team also has talented bowlers like R Divakar and Shahrukh Khan. Additionally, Khan is a great all-rounder who was able to pick 11 wickets in 10 matches last year. With all their talented cricketers considered, Lyca Kovai Kings could be a strong contender in the upcoming TNPL.

Since we’re talking about successful teams in the previous season, we also have to mention Nellai Royal Kings. They finished at the top of the table in the league stage with 6 wins out of 7 matches. However, they were eliminated by Lyca Kovai Kings in the 2nd qualifier.

The team has key players such as L Suryaprakash and Guruswamy Ajitesh, who performed well with the bat in the previous season. Karthick Manikandan and NS Harish are also key members that could help the squad reach the final this year.
