SS vs SMP Match Prediction & Betting Tips, TNPL 2022
Match 16 of the Tamil Nadu Premier League brings Salem Spartans and Madurai Panthers together on Monday evening. The Spartans have played two and lost two and currently sit bottom of the table. The Panthers have won three of four and are in second place. The match begins at The SNR College Cricket Ground, Coimbatore at 19:15 local time.
Salem Spartans are at the foot of the table and have not won a game yet this season. However, they are three games behind some teams in the competition and they are not so weak that they should be written off ahead of this match.
Madurai Panthers look to be one of the serious contenders for the tournament this year. They lost to Nellai Royal Kings but showed great character to bounce back immediately with a win over Dindigul Dragons.

SS vs SMP Match Toss Prediction
Bowling first is what all skippers have done so far in the tournament. Although you are not out of the game if you bat first, fielding is far easier in the early hours of the game and we expect both captains to field first.
SS vs SMP Match Pitch Report
This venue usually produces a wicket which allows for more of a contest between bat and ball than some of the others in the tournament. Spinners will certainly get plenty of turn from the surface.
The game will be played with temperatures in the mid-twenties under cloudy skies and with developing humidity.

Salem Spartans Team News & Playing 11
SS Team News
The Spartans suffered a big defeat against Nellai Kovai Kings last time out and there will be plenty of shouts from their supporters to make big changes to the side. However, we expect Murugan Ashwin’s side to keep faith with the same XI as they try and get the squad familiar with each other’s roles.
SS Key Players
- Daryl Ferrario- the middle-order batter hit only 5 runs from 4 balls on Wednesday last week. However, he performed well in the first game of the competition and he looks to be thriving without the captaincy.
- Hari Gopinath- the opener was dismissed with a strike-rate of 227.78 against the Kovai Kings. He struck three fours and four sixes.
- G Kishoor- the toothless bowling performance from the side in the last game means it would be a travesty if Kishoor is not brought back in. He dismissed a set batter and another for a golden duck against Lyca.
SS Team Form
Two defeats from two matches never looks good. Combined with last year’s poor finish, the Spartans are a distance from being a consistent side in this campaign
Salem Spartans Predicted Playing 11
KH Gopinath, R Kavin (wk), Jafar Jamal, Akshay Srinivasan, Daryl Ferrario, S Abishiek, Pranav Kumar, Murugan Ashiwn (c), Ganesh Moorthi, G Kishoor
Madurai Panthers Team News & Playing 11
SMP Team News
The Panthers produced an excellent team performance in their last game, Match 13 against Dindigul Dragons, which they won at a canter by 7 wickets with 4.3 overs remaining. Although they picked up three wickets via run-outs, all of their frontline bowlers impressed and we do not expect to see any changes to their XI for this match.
SMP Key Players
- Arun Karthik- the opener was the second highest scorer for the Panthers with 41 runs from 31 balls against the Dragons. Karthik hit seven fours in his innings.
- NS Chaturved- the skipper crashed one boundary before being dismissed for 10 runs from 12 balls in the last game. He has a top score of 75 in this year’s tournament.
- Kiran Akash- the right-arm medium fast bowler produced his most economical performance against Dindigul Dragons. Although he didn’t take a wicket he was still very hard to get away.
SMP Team Form
The Panthers are flying in the table in spite of their only defeat to Nellai Royal Kings. The dominance shown over Dindigul Dragons was shown in the winning margin.
Madurai Panthers Predicted Playing 11
Arun Karthik, Vignesh Iyer, Anirudh Sita Ram, NS Chaturved (c), Jagatheesan Kousik, Rithik Easwaran (wk), Sunny Sandhu, Kiran Akash, Ragupathy Silmbarasan, B Rocky, Varun Chakravarthy

Salem Spartans vs Madurai Panthers Prediction
We think that Salem Spartans are a better team than the league table currently suggests. However, unluckily for them, they come up against the big-hitting and impressive bowling attack from Madurai Panthers in this game. The Panthers have quality throughout their squad and, although we expect them to lose some more matches this year, we are predicting a victory for Madurai Panthers
