SLK vs TKR Dream11 team tips for Caribbean Premier League 2022
Top tip: Best batter
SLK’s Faf du Plessis will be the batter to watch out for. The veteran Proteas batter has made 456 runs in 19 CPL matches at a strike rate of 122.25. At 9.5 credits, du Plessis is someone you can bank on to help St Lucia Kings score big in the powerplay overs.
Top tip: Best bowler
In the bowling department, St Lucia Kings pacer Alzarri Joseph will be a smart pick at 9 credits. Joseph has registered 30 wickets in his CPL career, with nine scalps from 10 games in the 2021 edition. His ability to take early wickets in the powerplay overs is one of the many reasons why we recommend him as a top bowler.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, picking Trinbago Knight Riders star Andre Russell in any fantasy team is a no-brainer. Russell has already scored 1,491 CPL runs and grabbed 69 wickets in the competition, making him one of most successful all-rounders in CPL history. Andre Russell is a premium pick available for 10 credits.
TKRs Nicholas Pooran will be the top fantasy recommendation for the wicket-keeper’s spot over Johnson Charles of SLK. Pooran has been involved in 62 dismissals (52 caught, 10 stumpings) in 82 CPL career matches and with the bat, the left-hander has scored 1,544 runs. At 9.5 credits, the Trinbago Knight Riders gloveman makes a strong addition to any fantasy team.
