SLK vs TKR Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: CPL 2022 Match 2 | SLK vs TKR Dream11 Prediction Today | St Kitts Pitch Report

Day two of CPL 2022 is set to be a cracker. St Lucia Kings, who have reached the final in each of the past two seasons, will be hoping that third-time lucky applies this year.

To start off, they have arguably the toughest test in Trinbago Knight Riders. Four-time champions TKR, who have finished first in four of the past five seasons, look even stronger now with the addition of Andre Russell and Nicholas Pooran. It is a wonderful side on first glance, but as was the case with St Kitts, last night, you need to produce on the field.

Warner Park Basseterre St Kitts Pitch Report and Weather

Last night, Jamaica struck 183/2 but took a while to get going. In reply, St Kitts never got going, falling 46 runs short on a wicket that was a touch slow.

In CPL 2021, the average first innings score was 162.48. There was a mix of both lower and higher scores. Also, the team batting first won 17 times compared to 16 by the chasing team, so there wasn’t a clear trend.

A warm and clear day is forecast.

CPL 2022 Match 2 SLK vs TKR Match Prediction: Who will win?

This looks a cracking match on paper. TKR, with their depth, should win especially given SLK will be without key all-rounders.
