JK vs CS Dream11 team tips for Lanka Premier League 2021
Top Tip: Best batter
Avishka Fernando is the top-rated batter to watch out for in the JK setup. The Sri Lankan batter has scored 87 runs in Lanka Premier League 2021 so far, which has earned him 154 fantasy points. Fernando’s strike rate of 167.30 makes him a dangerous player in the powerplay overs, which will be crucial for his team to climb to the top spot in the LPL standings.
Top Tip: Best bowler
Jayden Seales enters the fixture as the leading wicket-taker in the competition, at the time of writing. The 20-year-old has an economy of 8.19 and has been identified as a major threat for opposition batters, especially in the death overs. Fantasy players will fancy Seales to add to his tally of seven wickets on Friday.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Wanindu Hasaranga is the perfect all-round pick for this contest. The JK player has excelled with the ball as he has five wickets in three games. Hasaranga is one player who can turn the tide of the contest in crunch situations, and will be eager to put on a match-winning display to bolster his fantasy points tally of 181.
CS’ Kusal Perera is a good choice for the wicket-keeping role in this match. The Sri Lankan gloveman is known for his efficient performances behind the stumps. He will be looking to contribute with the bat in the upcoming contest and add to the three dismissals he’s affected in LPL 2021.
JK vs CS probable playing XI
JK playing XI (probable): Upul Tharanga, Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wicket-keeper), Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Avishka Fernando, Shoaib Malik, Thisara Perera (captain), Wanindu Hasaranga, Chaturanga de Silva, Suranga Lakmal, Mahesh Theekshana, Jayden Seales
