The Tamil Nadu Premier League is one of the most significant domestic leagues that has emerged in recent years. Some of the best Indian talents from Tamil Nadu have played in the league. The league has also provided India with many future prospected talents.
Chepauk Super Gillies took on Nellai Royal Kings in the first match of the 2022 season. Narayan Jagadeesan and Kaushik Gandhi got the Super Gillies off to a flying start as they were chasing 185 to win. The two were scoring nearly 10 runs each over. Baba Aparjith then saw Jagadeesan had left his crease, and ripped the bails off the stumps, and Jagadeesan was out for 25 off 15 balls under the Mankad rule. The enraged batter was spotted outrageously showing the opposition the middle finger.

Narayan Jagadeesan couldn’t suppress his frustration as he made the gesture after his dismissal.

As for the match, the game saw great entertainment as a super over decided the result of the game. Laxmesha Suryaprakash (62 runs in 50 balls) and Sanjay Yadav (87 runs in 47 balls) scored brilliant half-centuries in the first innings. The two helped Royal Kings reach a total of 184 runs.
On the other hand, Kaushik Gandhi continued to play a great game after Jagadeesan’s wicket. He went on to score 64 runs in 43 balls to help Super Gillies level the score. He did not get much assistance from other batters in the game.
In the super over, Jagdeesan could manage one six and help the team to a score of nine runs. In the next over, Royal Kings lost one wicket, but a few extra runs gave them a comfortable win in the thrilling game. With this Royal Kings earned two important points at the start of the tournament.
