GUY vs SKN Dream11 team tips for Caribbean Premier League 2021
Top tip: Best batsman
There are a couple of great choices for a batsman in this match, but Sherfane Rutherford of SKN pips them all with his Player of the Match performance from his previous outing. The middle-order batsman steadied the ship for his team after a top-order collapse by scoring a 43-ball 53 that led to his team breaching the 170-run mark. At just 8.5 credits, the 22-year-old is an absolute bargain.
Top tip: Best bowler
GUY’s Romario Shepherd accumulated a whopping 117 fantasy points from his last outing. It came after he picked three wickets for just 15 runs in three overs, hence it goes without saying that he should find a place in your fantasy team for match 5.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
There are players like Dwayne Bravo and Fabian Allen to consider for the all-rounder spot, but judging by recent form, GUY’s Odean Smith should be your ideal pick. The 24-year-old picked two wickets for just 10 runs and scored a quick-fire 24 with the bat in the previous match to win 86 fantasy points. Expect another Player of the Match worthy performance from the all-rounder.
As for a wicket-keeper, GUY’s Nicholas Pooran is an outright choice. The 25-year-old took three catches in the last match and finished with 47 fantasy points.
GUY vs SKN probable playing XI
