Hot Fantasy Picks
Evin Lewis: In the recently finished 6IXTY tournament, the explosive opener contributed significant cameo hits, scoring 32 runs off just 16 balls against the Tribago-based franchise in the league match. Despite only scoring four runs in the Caribbean T20 League 2022 opener, he is still among the Patriots' top batters.
(ii) All Rounders
Dwayne Bravo: In his first two games, the veteran all-rounder has scalped three wickets and scored 20 runs. In this game, the Patriots will rely heavily on his tactics as he has taken wickets in each of his last five matches.
Tim David (SLK)- The 23-year-old Australian all-rounder smashed 43 runs in just 20 balls. Hopefully, there is a lot more to see from his side in this tournament.
Alzarri Joseph (SLK)- He is the leading wicket-taker from his team and has scalped 10 wickets in just four innings. He also has a great economy of 6.
Scott Kuggeleijn (SLK)- Sometimes he lacks control on his skills but he has the ability to hurry up the batsmen. He has scalped six wickets in four matches so far at an economy rate of 9.
(iv) Wicket Keepers
Andre Fletcher: The seasoned wicketkeeper-batsman is SKN’s leading run scorer this season with 112 runs in two innings. He scored 31 runs in the first match against JAM, then 81 runs off just 55 balls in a decisive match against the Barbados-based franchise.
Risky Captaincy Choice
Evin Lewis plays on a high note when promoted up the order. He can prove to be a risky captaincy choice.
Tough to choose between the two teams. But SLK proves to be a much better side when we compare their player stats. Hence we back SLK to win this match against SKN.
