This article will talk about the probable XIs for both teams and continue with the Dream11 predictions and the winning fantasy team for the 23rd game of the TNPL between the Salem Spartans and Nellai Royal Kings that is scheduled to take place on the 5th of August 2021.

The Salem Spartan who has won just the solitary game in the TNPL is the last-placed team in the points will take on the Nellai Royal Kings. The Royal Kings came back to winning ways in their last and have won 2 of its first 5 games. So this will be the 6th game for either side.

The Nellai Royal King got their campaign back on track by defeating the DIndugal Dragons by 5 wickets in their previous game on Tuesday. Skipper Baba Aparajith led from the front in the successful chase of 148 by top-scoring with 44 runs. He was ably supported by Sanjay Yadav who played a cameo of 15-ball 31 and Ranjan Paul who made 27. Earlier in the evening, the Nellai bowlers particularly A Davidson(2/23) did a fantastic on to keep the Dragons under 150.

The Salem Spartans on the other hand had a forgettable outing on Sunday against the Trichy Warriors. Batting first, the Spartans could score only 118 for the loss of 8 wickets in their 20 overs as their batting never got going on what was a slow track at Chepauk. The Salem bowlers however tried their best to take the game till the penultimate over but 118 was not proved to be enough on the day.
