SPM vs LKK Dream11 team tips for TNPL 2022

Top Tip: Best batter 

Siechem Madurai Panthers’ B Anirudh Sita Ram has been one of the standout batters in TNPL 2022 so far. The 27-year-old played a match-winning knock of an unbeaten 58 off just 41 balls against Chepauk Super Gillies in their first match of the tournament. B Anirudh Sita Ram has already accrued 97 fantasy points and will be a great fantasy pick at just 8.5 credits.

Top Tip: Best bowler

In the bowling department, L Kiran Akash of SMP will be the bowler to watch out for. The right-arm medium pacer picked three wickets for 34 runs in his quota of four overs in his last match against Chepauk Super Gillies. He has scalped 13 wickets in eight matches in TNPL at an economy of 8.39. Having amassed 91 fantasy points, Akash will be a worthy fantasy pick at 9 credits. 

Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

Among the various all-rounders on display, one must pick Lyca Kova Kings captain Shahrukh Khan in the fantasy team. While Shahrukh scored 8-ball 19 against Dindigul Dragons in their previous fixture, he has been a proven match-winner in the TNPL. Last season, Shahrukh amassed 210 runs in eight matches at a strike rate of 177.96 while also maintaining an average of 52.50. At 9.5 credits, Shahrukh could be a fantastic investment for this match.

For the wicket-keeper spot, Siechem Madurai Panthers’ Arun Karthik pips J Suresh Kumar of  Lyca Kova Kings. Arun Karthik played a decent knock of 31 off 22 balls against Chepauk Super Gillies in their last match. He is also a safe wicket-keeper to pick.
