Both Siechem Madurai Panthers (SMP) and Nellai Royal Kings (NRK) had a terrific TNPL season last time around. However, Siechem lost in the Eliminator to bow out of the competition while Nellai lost both Qualifiers 1 and 2. Thus, both these teams would be fired up to start well in their inaugural match of the season.
Notably, skipper Hari Nishanth will be extremely important for Madhurai once again this season. Swapnil Singh and Murugan Ashwin too can prove to be important for the team. When it comes to Nellai Royal Kings, skipper Arun Karthik will be vital along with Nidhish Rajagopal and Sandeep Warrier.

SMP vs NRK Probable Best Performers
Probable best batter
Madhurai skipper Hari Nishanth is one of the most consistent performers in the tournament. However, the cricketer hasn’t played professional cricket in the last eight months and that’s a massive concern. But hiven his track record in TNPL, the cricketer can prove to be extremely dangerous for the opposition.
Probable best bowler
Sandeep Warrier can prove to be valuable as the pitch is expected to assist the pacers. Notably, the 32-year-old has played 68 T20 matches so far and picked up 62 wickets in the process.
