SMP vs NRK, Match Preview, Match Details, Pitch Report, Probable Playing XI, Match Prediction for Match 3 of TNPL 2023


Match Preview

It will be SMP vs NRK for the 3rd game of the Tamil Nadu Premier League tomorrow at Coimbatore.

Both these teams had a great season last time around and will be eager to win the title for themselves.

Looking back at their previous games, the Siechem Madurai Panthers won five of their seven matches to qualify for the playoffs but then lost to Lyca Kovai Kings in the Eliminator.

Therefore, Hari Nishanth has been handed the responsibility to lead the side for this season.

On the other hand, Nellai Royal Kings did qualify for the Qualifiers but lost out to Chepauk Super Gillies in the first qualifier.

Once more, they lost to Lyca Kovai Kings in the second qualifier and couldn’t reach the final. They will therefore look to win this time around.

Arun Karthik will be leading the Royal Kings for this edition of the TNPL.

Pitch Report

The wicket at Coimbatore is considered a very good surface for batters to bat on. However, as it is a day game between these two sides, chances are spinners will be more effective. On the other hand, the ball will hold for a while and batters will have to wait it out in the initial overs.
