Table-toppers St Kitts and Nevis Patriots (SKN) take on Jamaica Tallawahs (JAM) in their reverse fixture in match 21 of the Caribbean Premier League 2021 at Warner Park on Wednesday, September 8.
SKN are perched at the top of the table with five wins and two losses in their seven matches. They defeated JAM by six wickets when these sides met for the first time in CPL 2021.
JAM are left with quite some work to do as they have won just two and lost three in their five matches until now. A loss against SKN earlier in the league puts them under pressure as well.
SKN vs JAM Dream11 prediction
SKN hold a psychological edge over JAM as they got the better of them earlier in the tournament. SKN already have some winning momentum with them alongside an established bunch of match-winners, which makes them outright favourites to win this clash. JAM are still figuring out their right combination which puts them on the backfoot even before the start of the match.
SKN vs JAM Dream11 team tips for Caribbean Premier League 2021
Top tip: Best batsman
Sherfane Rutherford is the batsman who can change the pace of the match for SKN in an instant. He struck a brilliant unbeaten 26-ball 50 against JAM to set up a six-wicket win for his side in both teams’ previous encounter in CPL 2021. Rutherford should easily make it to most fantasy teams given the reputation he has developed in franchise cricket.
Top tip: Best bowler
JAM medium-pacer Migael Pretorius is the bowler to watch out for in this contest. The 25-year old has been consistently amongst the wickets in this tournament with a best of 4/32 that came against Saint Lucia Kings. He also claimed four scalps against Barbados Royals and fantasy team owners will certainly want him in their team.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Andre Russell remains the best all-round pick for this contest. He hammered a 14-ball 50 for JAM against SLK in the early days of the tournament and played a brief cameo of 20 not out against Trinbago Knight Riders. With the ball, he has been chipping in with wickets, making him a great asset in any fantasy side.
SKN wicket-keeper Devon Thomas is the best pick for this category. He is effective behind the stumps and has been providing quick starts to his side at the top of the order. His utility will certainly impress fantasy enthusiasts.
SKN vs JAM probable playing XI
SKN playing XI (probable): Devon Thomas (wicket-keeper), Evin Lewis, Chris Gayle (captain), Andre McCarthy, Fabian Allen, Sherfane Rutherford, Asif Ali, Colin Archibald, Fawad Ahmed, Naseem Shah, Paul van Meekeren
JAM playing XI (probable): Kennar Lewis (wicket-keeper), Kirk Mckenzie, Haider Ali, Rovman Powell (captain), Jason Mohammed, Imad Wasim, Carlos Brathwaite, Andre Russell, Chris Green, Migael Pretorius, Fidel Edwards
