Tamil Nadu T20 League 2023

3rd Match: SMP vs NRK



The 3rd match of the Tamil Nadu T20 League 2023 will be played between Siechem Madurai Panthers and Nellai Royal Kings. The match is scheduled to be played at the  SNR College Cricket Ground in Coimbatore on Wednesday, June 14.

NRK had a great season last year. They started their campaign with consecutive wins and later met with their first loss in the last game of the tournament. They lost two straight games in the playoffs and ultimately settled in the third position in the league standings. The Royal Kings won six and lost one game before finishing in the topmost position in the points table. They have a powerful batting lineup with the likes of players like R Sanjay Yadav and B Aparajith who ended up in the 1st and 3rd position in the list of highest scorers in the tournament. Yadav drafted 452 runs in 9 innings at an average of 90.40 with 5 half-centuries and a century alongside Aparajith who was just behind him with 396 runs at an average of 56.57. They have to improve their bowling attack. Last season, K Easwaran was the top wicket-taker with 9 wickets. 

On the other side, SMP ended up in the thyroid position in the points table of the league stage with 5 wins and 2 losses in seven matches. They tasted their first defeat of the previous season against NRK by 27 runs. The Royal Lions scored 209 runs in that game and restricted the Madhurai Panthers to 183 runs taking 8 wickets in the process to fetch victory.

Pitch Report

The 3rd Match of Tamil Nadu T20 League 2023 is scheduled to be played at SNR College Cricket Ground in Coimbatore. The surface here at this stadium is flat and favourable for the batters as there is almost no pace or bounce. The outfield in this stadium is remarkably fast and the ball will be travelling to the outfield pretty faster. The pitch also provides a lot of help for the spinners but almost all teams in this league have a powerful batting lineup so in this case it does not matter at all. A total of 180 runs should be a par score on this ground.
