Patriots, Knight Riders clash in battle of equals - get CPL 2021 fantasy tips and predictions
Table-toppers Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) take on a spirited St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots (SKN) in match 30 of Caribbean Premier League 2021 at Warner Park on Monday, September 13.
TKR and SKN are equal on points in the latest CPL 2021 standings, with 10 points on the back of five wins and three defeats. However, Trinbago have a better net run rate than the latter, and thus, they will look to continue their resurgence in the competition as we approach the knockouts round.
SKN vs TKR Dream11 prediction
With the luxury of match-winners and the right mix of youth and experience, it is not easy to predict an outright winner for the SKN vs TKR showdown.
While the shrewdness of Kieron Pollard’s captaincy has signalled a turnaround for the defending champions, hosts SKN have produced performances worthy of being title contenders and they will hope to get the better of TKR.
SKN vs TKR Dream11 team tips for Caribbean Premier League 2021
Top tip: Best batsman
Left-handed batsman Colin Munro is the man in form for TKR. He scored a 28-ball 32 against Guyana Amazon Warriors and followed it with a run-a-ball 34 versus Jamaica Tallawahs. His ability to stay consistent is what will impress the fantasy cricket owners.
Top tip: Best bowler
Ravi Rampaul has been bowling like a dream for TKR. In the last five matches, he has collected 11 wickets that included a four-wicket haul against GUY and a three-wicket haul against Saint Lucia Kings. The fantasy cricket team captains would undoubtedly want a player of such calibre in their ranks.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Fabian Allen has been in destructive form in the tournament so far. The SKN all-rounder smashed a 12-ball 30 versus JAM and a 34 against SLK. He has also scalped four wickets in the last three matches, which makes him the player to watch out for.
SKN wicket-keeper Devon Thomas remains the best option in the category. While opening the innings, he struck a watchful 35 runs against JAM and got the team to good starts on several occasions. His glovework is excellent, too, and that should impress the fantasy team owners.
SKN vs TKR probable playing XI
SKN playing XI (probable): Evin Lewis, Devon Thomas, Chris Gayle (captain), Joshua Da Silva (wicket-keeper), Ravi Bopara, Dominic Drakes, Fabian Allen, Andre McCarthy, Paul van Meekeren, Jon-Russ Jaggesar, Fawad Ahmed
TKR playing XI (probable): Lendl Simmons, Tion Webster, Colin Munro, Darren Bravo, Tim Siefert (wicket-keeper), Akeal Hosein, Kieron Pollard (captain), Sunil Narine, Khary Pierre, Ravi Rampaul, Jayden Seales
