The first ever edition of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) will be held in 2016 with eight teams fighting it out for glory in what will be a Twenty20 tournament played in the state. Below, you will get all the latest Tamil Nadu Premier League betting tips and the predictions associated with the TNPL.
Eight teams will participate in the first ever season of this TNPL. These eight sides will be divided into two groups of four teams each, with each team expected to play the three other sides in their group twice each – most ostensibly on a home and away basis.
This will translate into a minimum of six matches for each of the teams in both groups in the league stage of the Tamil Nadu Premier League. The top two teams in each of the groups at the end of this round-robin league will make it to the semi-finals which will be followed by the grand final.
What’s interesting is that the TNPL will have a Draft system to select the players instead of an auction. This Draft will be held in July and will be on the lines of the one that is on show during the Caribbean Premier League.
The difference is that the team which has bid the biggest amount of money to get a team in the TNPL will get the first right to bring in a player in all rounds of the Draft.

It is estimated that Tamil Nadu players like Murali Vijay, R Ashwin and Dinesh Karthik could take part in the TNPL but a lot of that will depend on the availability from the domestic season. The aforementioned players could also feature in the Duleep Trophy which will make it tougher for them to take time out for the TNPL.
