TKR vs SKN Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Pitch Report CPL 2023 Match 3 | STKNP vs TKR Dream11 Prediction Today | St Lucia Pitch Report

Trinbago Knight Riders and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, two of the most disappointing teams in CPL 2022, are looking to make the perfect start to the new season. Both missed the playoffs, each winning just three matches in a campaign where they simply couldn’t get going.

The two teams come into the new season with star-studded teams. But, with strong squads comes the challenge of choosing your best XI right away. Combinations will be key in the quest to make a strong start to the campaign, with the team who does the little things right likely to come away with the two points.
