This match will mark Nellai Royal Kings’ debut in the Tamil Nadu Premier League and they would be raring to get a victory in their first assignment. With the team combination being now, it would be interesting to see how they perform as a unit. Nevertheless, they have the services of several potent T20 players like Baba Aparajith and Sanjay Yadav.

Speaking of Ruby Trichy Warriors, the side had a terrible campaign in 2019 as they lost six of their seven games and couldn’t qualify for the playoffs. However, the Rahil Shah-led would be determined to change their fortunes this time around.

Captaincy Picks for NRK vs RTW:

Baba Aparajith

The all-rounder is one of the most sought after Tamil Nadu players going around and many eyes would be on him. Aparajith can score runs consistently and his handy off-spins have challenged the best of batsmen. Notably, Baba Aparajith scored 213 runs last season at an average of over 40. Hence, the youngster would like to continue from where he left.

Antony Dhas

Another player to watch out for in this contest is Antony Dhas. The right-arm pacer tends to take wickets without leaking too many runs. He’s also very much capable of scoring quick runs in crunch overs. In 12 T20 matches so far, Dhas has scalped 14 wickets alongside scoring 88 runs.
