Dragons dominated Madurai Panthers for a nine-wicket victory after losing a tense tournament opener to Ruby Trichy Warriors while Kovai Kings got its campaign off to a winning start with a victory against Karaikudi Kaalai via the Super Over.

Dragons captain Ravichandran Ashwin bowled splendidly in the death in the match against Madurai Panthers, re-turning figures of 3-25. Leg-spinner M Abhinav was impressive too.

Dragons raced to victory following an unbeaten partnership of 125 at the top between N Jagadeesan and R Vivek.

The worrying factor for the Dragons could be the performance of its pace bowlers, who went for runs in Tirunelveli.

However, the change in venue may suit the team as the cross wind at the ICL Sankar Nagar ground in Tirunelveli was posing a big challenge to the bowlers.
