SLK vs SKN Tips, Stats & Team for Today Match Prediction
Match: SLK vs SKN CPL T20 Prediction
Time: 05 September, 07:30 PM (IST)
Venue: Warner Park – Basseterre, Saint Kitts And Nevis
- Evin Lewis hit 73 from 42 balls on Saturday including 11 boundaries. He is a good bet for St Kitts & Nevis Patriots highest run scorer in this game. Fawad Ahmed returned figures of 1-23 in Saturday’s game and is our tip for their top wicket taker in this match.
- Captain Faf du Plessis smashed 120 not out from 60 balls in the match on Saturday. He may struggle to replicate a triple figure scorer but he is still worth backing as St Lucia Kings’ highest run scorer. With the ball, Alzarri Joseph has 5 wickets in his last three games including 3-27 on Saturday. We are backing him to be St Lucia Kings’ top wicket taker.
- It will be interesting to see how the big hitting batsmen fare the day after their high scores. We envisage Evin Lewis and Faf du Plessis to be fighting it out for the Player of The Match Award with Lewis coming out on top.
Live Streaming: The match can be watched live on Sky Cricket in the UK. Star Sports will show live coverage in India with Fox Sports having the rights in Australia. Willow TV show the games in USA.
Weather & Pitch Report:
🏟️ Pitch:As with any pitch, if a batter gets in and lasts the 20 overs, a big score will be delivered. We expect a par score to be around 155-165 in this match.
The Patriots won the toss and chose to field on Saturday but could well be tempted to bat first this time. We expect St Lucia Kings to look to replicate the last game and choose to bat.

SLK Team News:
Considering every other team in the CPL 2021 has been defeated by St Kitts & Nevis Patriots, it would be incredible if St Lucia Kings made any changes to their side which just beat them by 100 runs. Every element of the team fired well on Saturday and they will need another team performance in this game.
SKN Team News:
We expect captain Dwayne Bravo to be ruled out of this rematch with a groin strain and are predicting that Chris Gayle will lead the side in his absence. Netherlands bowler Paul van Meekeren should take Bravo’s place in the bowling attack.

Who will win today match: SLK vs SKN CPL T20 Match Fantasy Team
his game will be a huge test of the character of the Patriots side. Facing the team who thrashed them less than 24 hours earlier and probably without their influential captain. We expect to see a much closer game with the Patriots returning to winning ways.
SLK Key Players:
Faf du Plessis:
Faf du Plessis- the South African opener had had a slow start to the tournament but now holds the highest individual score and is the only player to have hit a century in the 2021 competition.
SKN Key Players:
Evin Lewis- the opener has hit 19 sixes in the tournament so far and is the first batsman to go beyond 200 runs in the 2021 CPL.
Sherfane Rutherford- previously the highest run scorer in the competition, Rutherford has contributed only 12 runs in the last two games. The Patriots need him back firing in this match.
Fawad Ahmed- the leg spin bowler had an impressive economy rate of 5.75 in Saturday’s game. Expect the St Lucia Kings batters to treat him with respect in this game also.
SLK Team Form:
- the Kings are the team which everyone is now keeping an eye on. They have recorded three wins from their last four games and now sit in 2nd place.
SKN Team Form:
- the winning run may now be over but they have plenty of players still high on confidence and have been playing good cricket throughout the competition.

Top Team Batsmens:
We are backing Evin Lewis, Chris Gayle and Sherfane Rutherford as the top batsmen for St Kitts & Nevis Patriots. Lewis was the only Patriots’ batter to make a significant score on Saturday.
For St Lucia Kings, our recommendations are Faf du Plessis, Andre Fletcher and Roston Chase with the bat. Chase has been consistent but du Plessis arrived at the tournament in the last game.

Sheldon Cottrell, Fawad Ahmed and Dominic Drakes are our tips with the ball for St Kitts & Nevis Patriots. Ahmed impressed with his control when the rest of the attack went around the ground in Saturday’s clash.
For St Lucia Kings, the top bowlers are Kesrick Williams, Wahab Riaz and Alzarri Joseph. All three bowlers impressed in the win on Saturday.
