CPL 2021 Match 27: TKR vs SKN Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible Playing 11 Pitch Report | TKR vs SKN Dream11 Prediction Today | Trinbago Knight Riders  vs St Kitts & Nevis Patriots Key Players | St Kitts Pitch Report

We are down to the business end of the competition and while Trinbago Knight Riders will be looking to consolidate its numero uno spot, St Kitts & Nevis Patriots will look to leapfrog its opponent and claim the No.1 spot.

Trinbago Knight Riders will come into this game on the back of a three-match winning streak. Their latest win came against Barbados Royals after they successfully chased down a poultry target of 94.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, on the other hand, have lost three games on the bounce and with just two league matches left, they will be hoping to get their campaign back on track. They will come into this game after having suffered a 22-run defeat at the hands of Jamaica Tallawahs where they failed to chase down 170.

Key Players to watch/Key Stats

Trinbago Knight Riders:

  • Kieron Pollard: The champion all-rounder is the second highest run-scorer for TKR this season. In 7 innings, he has racked up 169 runs at an average of 42.25 and a strike rate of 144.4. His record for TKR against SKN: 92 runs in 3 innings at 46.00.
  • Tim Siefert: The Kiwi stumper is the 4th highest run-getter for TKR- 155 runs at an average of 31 but he would like to improve on his strike rate of 116.54 in the coming games.
  • Sunil Narine: The off-spinner has thus far claimed 11 wickets in 8 innings and his economy rate of 4.78 has been truly unreal. His record against SKN: 14 wickets in 11 innings at 16.71.
  • Ravi Rampaul: The veteran pacer has had a sensational season this far. With 17 wickets in 8 innings, he is the leading wicket-taker for TKR thus far.
  • Akeal Hosein: Just like Narine, Hosein has been brilliant for TKR this season. In 8 innings, he has claimed 11 wickets at 12.36 and a barely believable economy rate of 4.25.
  • Khary Pierre: He claimed three wickets in the last game against Barbados and with 5 wickets in 4 innings this season at an average of 19.80, he is the one to watch out for in the upcoming games.

St Kitts & Nevis Patriots:

  • Sherfane Rutheford: The middle-order batsman has been the bedrock of the SKN line-up this season. He is their second highest run-getter- 201 runs in 7 innings at an average of 40.20 and a strike rate of 136.73 with 3 50+ scores.
  • Evin Lewis: The swashbuckling batsman is the leading run-scorer for St Kitts this season. In 8 innings he has scored 241 runs at an average of 30.12 and a strike rate of 146.95 with 2 50+ scores. His record against TKR: 354 runs in 15 innings at a strike rate of 135.11.
  • Fabian Allen: The all-rounder has chipped in with crucial runs down the order – 117 runs in 8 innings at a strike rate of 139.28 – besides claiming 7 wickets at an average of 29. His record against TKR: 80 runs in 4 innings at a strike rate of 177.78.
  • DJ Bravo: The veteran cricketer has scored 78 runs in 3 innings at a strike rate of 125.80 besides claiming 8 wickets at 24.12. He will be key if available.
