TKR vs SKN Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: CPL 2022 Match 26 | TKR vs SKN Dream11 Prediction Today | Guyana Pitch Report

It’s now or never for the disappointing St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The defending champions, after their fifth defeat yesterday, are on the brink of elimination before the CPL 2022 playoffs. With just six points in nine games, St Kitts must win today and hope other results go their way to qualify for the final four.

Batting has been St Kitts’ biggest issue. Only Andre Fletcher (37.83) is averaging above 20 among the top seven, with under-par seasons by the likes of Evin Lewis and Sherfane Rutherford hurting them badly. It won’t get easier today against an established Trinbago Knight Riders attack, who themselves need to win to cement their place in the top four.

With regards to TKR, it has also been an under-par season for the star-studded lineup. But, this is the perfect time to peak. Nicholas Pooran, who is having a poor campaign, returns to a ground he has a great record at. Andre Russell is showing glimpses. Ravi Rampaul continues to take wickets. Akeal Hosein is a terrific spinner. Now, it’s time to put it all together.

TKR vs SKN Possible Playing XI

Trinbago Knight Riders: 1. Tim Seifert (wk), 2. Leonardo Julien, 3. Colin Munro, 4. Nicholas Pooran, 5. Kieron Pollard (c), 6. Andre Russell, 7. Sunil Narine, 8. Akeal Hosein, 9. Khary Pierre, 10. Ravi Rampaul, 11. Daryn Dupavilion

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots: 1. Andre Fletcher (wk), 2. Evin Lewis, 3. Darren Bravo, 4. Dewald Brevis, 5. Sherfane Rutherford, 6. Keacy Carty, 7. Dwayne Bravo (c), 8. Rashid Khan, 9. Duan Jansen, 10. Sheldon Cottrell, 11. Akila Dananjaya

TKR vs SKN Head-to-Head Stats & Key Players

Trinbago Knight Riders:

  • Nicholas Pooran has scored the third-most runs of any player in T20s at Providence Stadium. The left-hander has struck 416 runs in 12 innings at an incredible average of 69.33 and strike rate of 177.78.
  • Colin Munro has scored the most runs by any TKR player against St Kitts (350). He averages 31.82 and strikes at 128.68 against them.
  • Can Munro overcome a poor record on this ground? He averages just 13.00 in six matches (78 runs) with a strike rate of 95.12.
  • Kieron Pollard strikes at 169.89 against St Kitts since the start of 2019 (5 matches, 158 runs, avg. 39.50). Can the TKR captain find form in a season where he is averaging just 12.57?
  • Andre Russell has scored just 158 runs in 13 matches against St Kitts at an average of 19.75 and strike rate of 139.82. His top score this season just 23*, but he has faced only 56 balls. TKR will be well served giving Russell more time at the crease.
  • Ravi Rampaul is TKR’s leading wicket-taker this season (11). He took 4/19 a few days ago. The pacer has taken five wickets in four matches against St Kitts at an economy of 8.47.
  • Sunil Narine is conceding just 4.89 runs per over in CPL 2022 (9 wickets). Akeal Hosein is conceding just 5.56 per over (8 wickets). How St Kitts deal with these two spinners will be key.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots:

  • Evin Lewis has the most runs in TKR-SKN matches (456) at an average of 30.40 and strike rate of 145.22. He is coming off a 36-ball 41 against Barbados yesterday.
  • Andre Fletcher is SKN’s leading run-scorer this season (227) with an average of 37.83 and strike rate of 111.27. Against TKR, Fletcher has scored 564 at an average of 31.33 and strike rate of 105.42.
  • It’s been a horror season for Sherfane Rutherford (73 runs, avg. 12.16), and it didn’t get better yesterday (9). He averages just 19.83 in 10 matches vs TKR, but he does have good numbers on this ground: 8 inns, 235 runs, avg. 47.00, SR 143.29.
  • Dwayne Bravo has taken 14 wickets in 11 innings at Providence Stadium. The St Kitts captain is crucial to his team’s hopes today, particularly against TKR’s big hitting middle order.
  • TKR’s inability to find fluency this season brings Rashid Khan into the contest. The legspinner is conceding just 5.25 runs per over in four matches so far this season (4 wickets).
  • Sheldon Cottrell has an impressive 19 wickets in 12 matches vs TKR since the start of 2016 (avg. 16.63, econ. 7.35).

Other Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head: Matches 19, St Kitts 5, Trinbago 13, 1 N/R.

  • Defeat for SKN today will officially end their campaign.

Providence Stadium Guyana Pitch Report and Weather

As Guyana’s late hitting and Brandon King’s hundred showed, the Guyana surface can be conducive to six hitting. But, consistency has been a problem for most teams with the bat, and it remains to be seen if that is the case today.

A very hot day is forecast, with humidity levels expected to see a RealFeel temperature of about 38 degrees. According to AccuWeather, there should be mostly sunny conditions for this match.
