Kaushik Gandhi was the leading run-getter for the Spartans hitting 51 runs from 43 balls. None of the other batters supported him well in the middle overs and as a result, Salem Spartans could manage just a mediocre total from their quota of overs. The Salem bowlers tried valiantly to defend the total but it was too small.

He picked up a couple of wickets in the game. Another bowler that bowled well was Sachin Rathi who bowled economically in the game. The key players for the Spartans in this game against Madurai will be Abhishek Tanwar, Kaushik Gandhi, and Sachin Rathi. The Salem Spartans team played their last game against Nellai Royal Kings.
