CSG vs LKK Dream11 team tips for TNPL 2022
Top Tip: Best batter
Lyca Kovai Kings’ Sai Sudharsan will be the batter to watch out for in the TNPL 2022 final. The 20-year-old has amassed 271 runs in nine matches this season at an average of 45.16 and a strike rate of 137.56. Sudharsan has accrued 475 fantasy points and will be a great pick at 9 credits.
Top Tip: Best bowler
Among the bowlers, Lyca Kovai Kings’ Balu Surya has been one of the standout players in the ongoing TNPL. The off-spinner has picked up 10 wickets in eight matches at an economy of 6.03. At 8.5 credits, Surya is a smart pick as he will look to add to his fantasy tally of 360 points.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, Abhishek Tanwar of Lyca Kovai Kings is a must-have fantasy pick for TNPL 2022 final. The 30-year-old has been the leading wicket-taker in the ongoing T20 tournament so far, claiming 17 wickets in eight matches at an economy of 7.25. Tanwar has also scored 65 runs at a strike rate of 171.05. Having already amassed 635 fantasy points, picking Tanwar in any fantasy team is a no-brainer.
For the wicket-keeper spot, Lyca Kovai Kings’ J Suresh Kumar will be the preferred choice over Narayan Jagadeesan of Chepauk Super Gillies. Besides fulfilling his wicket-keeping responsibilities, Suresh Kumar has been the third highest run-scorer in TNPL 2022, accumulating 393 runs in nine matches at a strike rate of 159.10 and an average of 56.14.
