TKR vs JAM Dream11 tips for Caribbean Premier League 2021

Top Tip: Best batsman

Kennar Lewis has been the standout batsman for Jamaica Tallawahs in the ongoing edition of CPL. The 30-year-old is currently the second-highest run-getter in CPL 2021, amassing 160 runs in four matches at an impressive strike rate of 175.82 while also maintaining an average of 40. The swashbuckling Jamaica Tallawahs opener is expected to continue his impressive form against Trinbago Knight Riders.

Top Tip: Best Bowler

In the bowling department, Ravi Rampaul has been the destroyer-in-chief for Trinbago Knight Riders in CPL 2021. The veteran pacer has picked 13 wickets in five matches at an economy of 7.29. Rampaul is likely to trouble the vaunted Jamaica Tallawahs’ batting line-up.

Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

Several quality all-rounders will be on display in the Knight Riders vs Tallawahs encounter, however, one must pick Sunil Narine in their fantasy cricket team. Narine has already bagged six matches in five matches at an economy of just 4.95. He also scored 65 runs in the tournament so far. 

Jamaica Tallawahs’ Chadwick Walton will be the preferred choice for the wicket-keeper slot over Denesh Ramdin of TKR. Since Walton will open the batting, he will have a better opportunity to garner more fantasy points as compared to Ramdin coming lower down the order.

TKR vs JAM probable playing XI

TKR playing XI (probable): Sunil Narine, Lendl Simmons, Tion Webster, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert, Kieron Pollard (captain), Denesh Ramdin (wicket-keeper), Isuru Udana, Akeal Hosein, Khary Pierre, Ravi Rampaul

JAM playing XI (probable): Chadwick Walton (wicket-keeper), Kennar Lewis, Haider Ali, Rovman Powell (captain), Shamarh Brooks, Carlos Brathwaite, Andre Russell, Migael Pretorius, Chris Green, Joshua James, Fidel Edwards
