BR vs SKN Dream11 prediction
Barbados Royals and St Kitts & Nevis Patriots had a dismal season last year after finishing at the bottom of the points table with three and one win respectively.
Barbados and St. Kitts have since made some key additions in the player draft this year. The Patriots, in particular, will be boosted by the addition of Chris Gayle to their squad and you can rest assured that the Universe Boss will be keen to have an impact.
BR vs SKN Dream11 team tips for Caribbean Premier League 2021
Top tip: Best batsman
Evin Lewis of SKN will be the top pick from the batsmen’s section. The southpaw had a great CPL 2020, scoring 235 runs in 10 matches. He was the top run-getter for SKN last season and will be eager to have a similar impact this time around. Lewis has been selected by 94 percent of fantasy users and will be a worthy pick at 9.5 credits.
Top tip: Best bowler
Hayden Walsh Jr. of BR is a must-have pick from the bowlers' section. Walsh Jr. was the top wicket-taker in the T20I series against Australia in July, picking 12 wickets in just five matches. He has been selected by 86 percent of fantasy users and will be a valuable addition to your team at 9 credits.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Fabian Allen of SKN will be a good choice from the all-rounders' category. Allen is a good wicket-taking option in the middle overs with his canny left-arm spin. The 26-year-old is also a powerful hitter at the backend of the innings and boasts a career strike-rate of 193 in the final five overs in the T20s. At 9 credits, Fabian Allen is a steal.
Although listed as a batsman, Glenn Phillips of BR will be a top pick in the wicket-keepers' section. The Kiwi international was one of the top performers in recently concluded 100-ball League, scoring 214 runs from eight games at a healthy strike-rate. Phillips will be a good pick in your fantasy team at 9.5 credits.
