Date and Time: 15th September 2021, 7:30 PM IST
Venue: Warner Park, St Kitts
As seen in the semi-finals, a high-scoring game beckons at Warner Park. However, the pacers should get some help early on, keeping the batters on their toes. The spinners should also get some help in the middle overs, but the dimensions of the ground go against them. Wickets in hand will be key, with both teams likely to prefer batting first, given the setting of the game.
Today’s SLK vs SKN Dream11 Match Top Picks
Andre Fletcher: In the likely absence of Faf du Plessis, a lot will ride on the shoulders of Andre Fletcher, who hasn't been in the best of form in CPL 2021. However, his explosive ability at the top of the order should give him the nod over Joshua da Silva.
Evin Lewis: Evin Lewis is currently the top run-scorer in CPL 2021. With form on his side, Lewis is bound to be a popular pick in most SLK vs SKN Dream11 fantasy teams.
Roston Chase: Roston Chase has been the star player for the Kings in CPL 2021, with a heap of runs and wickets to his name. Like Lewis, Chase is also in the midst of good form, making him a good option for your fantasy team.
Wahab Riaz: Although Wahab Riaz has blown hot and cold this season, he has done fairly well in the backend of the innings. Riaz is also a decent bet with the bat, which could prove to be pivotal in this high octane game
