SK vs SL Dream11 match top picks, CPL 2022
Top Wicketkeeper Pick
Andre Fletcher (6 matches, 243 runs, Average: 60.75)
Andre Fletcher has been one of the top performers in the CPL this season with 243 runs in six matches. He has five scores of 30 or more in CPL 2022. Given the form that he is in, Fletcher, alongside Johnson Charles, should be a popular pick in your SK vs SL Dream11 prediction team.
Top Batter Pick
Evin Lewis (last 2 matches, 44 runs)
Evin Lewis is one of the top batters in the competition. Although the southpaw started slow, he scored 44 runs in his last two matches. He has played most of his cricket at Queens Park Oval, which happens to be his home ground, holding him in good stead.
Top All-rounder Pick
David Wiese (3/17 in the previous match vs St Kitts and Nevis Patriots)
David Wiese had a brilliant outing against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the reverse fixture, picking up three wickets. While he has taken six wickets in CPL 2022, Wiese is also capable of scoring quick runs. With the conditions also suiting his style of bowling, Wiese is one to watch out for in this game.
Top Bowler Pick
Rashid Khan (2 matches, 2 wickets, Economy: 2.50)
Rashid Khan has hit the ground running in CPL 2022, picking up two wickets at an economy rate of just 2.50 in two matches. While Rashid's bowling prowess is undeniable, he could also be used as a pinch-hitter down the order. Given the form that he is in with the ball, Rashid is a must-have in your SK vs SL Dream11 prediction team.

Faf du Plessis
Faf du Plessis has scored 145 runs in five CPL 2022 matches. His highest score this season, 60 runs off 35 balls, came against the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the reverse fixture. Given his experience and form, the South African should be a popular captaincy pick ahead for the game.
Evin Lewis has found some form with scores of 24 and 20 in his last two CPL outings. He has a good record at Queens Park Oval, scoring 351 runs in nine innings at a strike rate of 153.3.
