It will be an important contest as the Lyca Kovai Kings play the Salem Spartans in the 11th match of the Tamil Nadu Premier League 2022. Both sides are yet to win a game and would look to put their best here. The Kovai Kings come here with a loss against the Madurai Panthers in their last game while the Spartans lost to the Nellai Royal Kings in the only game they played.
The Salem Spartans have won the last three games between the two teams, and they would look to extend their record. The Spartans have several experienced players in the squad which would make the side confident. The Kovai Kings aren’t pushovers and as both sides hunt for their first win of the season we expect to see a close contest here.
It has been two losses in a row for Shahrukh Khan’s side and they will have to bounce back from here. The side did well in defending the low total in the last game but lost by 5 wickets against the Madurai Panthers off the penultimate ball. They need to stand tall here and win this game to regain their confidence.
Openers Ganga Sridhar Raju and Suresh Kumar have looked good, and the side would need a good show from them. Sai Sudharsan has failed in both games, and he has to deliver the goods in the middle order with U Mukilesh and Shijit Chandran. Khan is one of the best finishers in this tournament and he would have to deliver big blows along with Abhishek Tanwar.
Abhishek Tanwar and Balu Surya looked good in the last game with the new ball, and this would add to the side’s confidence. Valliappan Yudheeswaran leaked runs and he will have to do well in the middle overs of the game with S Ajith Ram and R Divakar. Khan grabbed 4 wickets, and the side would love to see a repeat show from the skipper.

Murugan Ashwin would like his side to get over the upset in their first game of the season. They went down by 5 wickets against the Nellai Royal Kings after a good start to the game. They are taking on a team that has lost both its games so far and the side would like to earn its first points for the season in this game.
Jafar Jamal and Gopinath failed to convert their starts in the last game and the side would need a better show from them here. R Kavin and Daryl Ferrario looked in good form and they would need to score runs in the middle order. The lower middle order’s poor show cost them in the last game and the side would need runs from S Abhishek, Ashwin, and B Praanesh in this game.
Their bowling attack performed poorly in the last game and the side would need tight spells with the new ball from M Ganesh Moorthi and Praanesh. Ashwin shall have to lead from the front being the most experienced bowler on the side. They would also look for good spells from the likes of G Periyaswamy, G Kishoor, and Ravi Karthikeyan.

The skies over Dindigul would be clear on July 6 and we expect to see a good batting surface. The ball would come onto the bat nicely allowing batsmen to play their strokes. We don’t expect to see much for the fast bowlers on this track. The side batting first shall look to put 180 runs on the board.
NPR College Ground, Dindigul is a small ground that has shorter boundaries. Batsmen have always enjoyed batting here as the outfield is quick and allows them to score runs in boundaries. Fast bowlers struggle on this surface with no assistance for them. Spinners tend to do well as the ball turns sharply on this surface.
It has been an excellent surface to chase as we have already seen in the games that have been played here. The wicket is good, and it is difficult for the bowlers to defend a score in the second innings. The side winning the toss shall have no hesitation in opting to bowl first.
This will be an important contest for both teams. The Lyca Kovai Kings must hit their way out of poor form in the game. Their batsmen and bowlers shall need to play complementary roles in this game for the side to win. The Spartans have enjoyed a good record against them in the past. This would put them slightly ahead in the contest.
