NRK vs SMP Preview:
- Guruswamy Ajitesh is averaging 65.25 in the tournament and we recommend backing him to be Nellai Royal Kings’ highest run scorer against Siechem Madurai Panthers. M Poiyamozhi has 6 wickets from the last three games and he is our tip for Nellai Royal Kings’ top wicket taker on Saturday.
- Suresh Lokeshwar is a fine batter at the top of the order and he is a strong choice for the Panthers’ highest run scorer against Nellai Royal Kings. Gurjapneet Singh is one of the joint top wicket takers in the tournament and he is our pick for the Panthers’ top wicket taker in this Eliminator.
- With a strong group stage behind him, we suggest choosing Guruswamy Ajitesh to hit over 29.5 runs in this playoff game.
Live Streaming: This match can be live-streamed on FanCode.
The match will be live telecast on Star Sports Network.
Weather & Pitch Report:
There will be some clouds throughout this game but we also expect sunny spells in the earlier part of the match. Humidity levels will rise to almost 80% by the end of the fixture.
We expect to see a surface which offers a good battle between bat and ball in this game. A team total of 170 will be very hard to chase down in the second innings of this Eliminator.
The humidity levels are forecast to rise across this game so we predict that neither team will want to field in the most humid part of the match. We expect both skippers to choose to field first if they win the toss.

When they last played at this venue, Siechem Madurai Panthers ran out as easy winners by 7 wickets with 18 balls remaining. We expect to see a very similar side picked for this game as who played in that fixture in Match 21. The Panthers have a fully fit squad to select from.

The skipper is one of only two players to have hit a century in the TNPL 2023. He struck 32 runs from only 12 balls in the last head to head game.
The 32 year old returned his most expensive figures of the tournament in the last match but still picked up 2 wickets. He took 3-25 in his only appearance in Salem earlier in the competition.

The pace bowler has excellent memories of playing in Salem. Earlier in the competition he took 4-18 and 2-6 at this venue.
The medium fast bowler has proven himself to be a very consistent wicket taker in the tournament. He has picked up 2 wickets in each of the last three matches.
