St Kitts & Nevis Patriots (SKN) will take on Guyana Amazon Warriors (GUY) in the eighth match of Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021 at Warner Park in Basseterre, St Kitts & Nevis on Monday, August 30.
Led by their new captain Dwayne Bravo, SKN started their CPL 2021 campaign in an impressive fashion as they defeated Barbados Royals by 21 runs.
Similarly, last year finalists Guyana Amazon Warriors made a great start to the new CPL season after beating defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders by nine runs.
SKN vs GUY Dream11 prediction
Guyana Amazon Warriors have beaten St Kitts & Nevis Patriots in all their last five meetings in the Caribbean Premier League. While the Warriors have made it to the CPL final on five occasions, the Patriots were the finalists in the 2017 season. Going by the head-to-head record and past results, Guyana Amazon Warriors will be the favourites to bag full points on Monday.
SKN vs GUY Dream11 team tips for CPL 2021
Top Tip: Best batsman
St Kitts & Nevis Patriots’ Chris Gayle will be the batsman to watch out for in the upcoming CPL encounter. The southpaw is the second-highest run-getter in the history of the Caribbean Premier League, amassing 2366 runs in 77 matches at a decent average of 38.78. The veteran batsman has also smashed four tons and 13 fifties in the T20 tournament. Gayle looked in decent touch against Barbados Royals and he will look to make a big score on Monday.
Top Tip: Best Bowler
Romario Shepherd was the standout bowler for Guyana Amazon Warriors in their opening encounter against Trinbago Knight Riders. The 26-year-old pacer picked the massive wickets of Lendl Simmons, Denesh Ramdin and Kieron Pollard as he ended with figures of 3/15 in his three overs. Shepherd is likely to add more wickets to his tally against St Kitts & Nevis Patriots.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, picking SKN captain Dwayne Bravo in your fantasy cricket team is a no-brainer. Bravo scored an unbeaten 35-ball 47 in the last match to take his team to a winning total. The West Indies all-rounder has scored 1012 runs and claimed 106 wickets in 80 CPL matches in his career.
For the wicket-keeper slot, one must pick Guyana captain Nicholas Pooran over Patriots’ Devon Thomas due to his match-winning capabilities with the bat. Pooran was the fifth-highest run-getter in CPL 2020, amassing 245 runs in 11 matches including one scintillating century.

SKN playing XI (probable): Evin Lewis, Devon Thomas (wicket-keeper), Chris Gayle, Asif Ali, Sherfane Rutherford, Dwayne Bravo (captain), Fabian Allen, Dominic Drakes, Sheldon Cottrell, Paul van Meekeren, Fawad Ahmed
