Pool A Story so far:

At the top of Pool A, we find the Madurai Veterans, who have played two matches and won them both. Their impressive goal difference of +4, with 6 goals for and 2 against, reflects their dominance in this pool. Led by their seasoned players, Madurai Veterans are setting a high standard.

Tamilnadu Veterans are not far behind, with a convincing victory in their sole match, boasting an astonishing goal difference of +11, thanks to their 11-goal blitz. The 2022 league champions performance sends a strong message to their competitors.

Adambakkam Veterans are holding their own with a win and a loss, while Mount United and Madras Masters are yet to secure a win. Nevertheless, every team in Pool A has the potential to turn the tide as the league progresses.

Fable of Pool B:

Pool B is equally intriguing. Madras Veterans have taken an early lead with a comprehensive victory in their first match, showcasing their offensive prowess with 7 goals while conceding just 1. Their goal difference of +6 underlines their intent.

Thunder Squad has also secured 3 points, albeit with a slighter goal difference of +3. Their experience is evident as they navigate through the competition.

Nilgiris Veterans and SM Nagar are in a promising position, each with 3 points from a win. Nilgiris Veterans, in particular, have a notable goal difference of +2.

On the other hand, Avadi Masters find themselves at the bottom of the table, searching for their first victory in the league.
