Salem Spartans have been beaten in every match so far this campaign and were thrashed by 7 wickets with 31 balls remaining against Chepauk Super Gillies on Tuesday. Very little is working well for the Spartans.
Ruby Trichy Warriors have lost to IDream Tiruppur Tamizhans, Chepauk Super Gillies, Lyca Kovai Kings and Nellai Royal Kings in their last four games. They are low on confidence but do have Murali Vijay in strong form.

With both teams struggling at the foot of the table, there is always the possibility that they break convention and choose to bat first. However, with the humidity levels going up in the second half of the fixture, we predict that both captains will want to field first.

As with the previous venues in the 2022 TNPL, the pitch in Salem favours the bowlers over the batters with spinners getting the most joy. We expect a par score to be no higher than 155 in this match.

SS Team News
Irrespective of the team selected, we are yet to see the Spartans find a formula which delivers with both bat and ball in the same game. They have no new injury worries and we expect them to give the team who lost in Salem on Tuesday another opportunity in this match.
SS Key Players
- H Gopinath – The 34 year old right handed opener top scored against Chepauk Super Gillies. He hit four fours and one six and was the only member of the top order to make double figures.
- Murugan Ashwin – In a team of underperformers, the captain has stood up and delivered with the ball in some matches. He hit 14 not-out before taking 1-29 in the last match.
- Ganesh Moorthi – The left-arm spinner should be getting more out of the surfaces on offer in this tournament. He has gone wicketless in his last two appearances but is a consistent wicket taker in the TNPL.
SS Team Form
The Spartans are still searching for their first win of the season and have lost nine of their last ten games in the TNPL.

RTW Team News
After conceding 236-2 against Nellai Royal Kings, it was always going to be an uphill struggle for the Warriors. So it proved with only Murali Vijay’s brilliance preventing a larger scale defefat. Akash Sumra, N Niranjan and M Mathivannan all missed out in the last game with Saravana Kumar, Adithya Ganesh and Antony Das coming in.
RTW Key Players
- Murali Vijay – the opener knew that someone in his side would need to make a huge score to give them a chance against Nellai Royal Kings. He did his bit with seven fours and 12 sixes.
- Rahil Shah – The skipper trapped Laxmesha Suryaprakash LBW in the last game. Whenever he has bowled his left-arm spin in the competition, he has kept the runs down.
- Saravana Kumar – The experienced medium pace bowler has chipped in with runs and wickets this season. He has only gone wicketless in one match.
RTW Team Form
The Warriors have not won a game since their impressive 8 wicket win over Dindigul Dragons in Match 2 of the tournament. Since then they have lost four successive fixtures.

Salem Spartans vs Ruby Trichy Warriors Prediction
Although both teams are having seasons to forget in the 2022 TNPL, that does not rule out the possibility of a very entertaining fixture. Murali Vijay was in sparkling form in his last innings and if he can put on a repeat performance then Ruby Trichy Warriors will be very hard to beat. Salem Spartans have been the worst team in the tournament so far and we expect them to fall to another defeat in this match.
