5 Must-Have Players in the Squad
Sunil Narine, Andre Russel, Glenn Phillips, Darren Bravo, and Sandeep Lamichhane.
TKR vs JAM Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Glenn Phillips (Price 10) will be the wicket-keeper of our squad. Phillips has been outstanding in the league games and is the main reason why Tallawahs are in the semi-finals of the tournament. He is the highest run-scorer of the tournament and has scored 214 runs in 9 innings at an average of 39.25. Glenn will be a definite pick in our team.
TKR vs JAM Dream11 Batsmen
Lendl Simmons (Price 9) and Darren Bravo (Price 8.5) will be our batsmen from the Knights. Bravo has batted superbly in the tournament and is the 3rd highest run-scorer. He has scored 239 runs at an average of 47.80 whereas Simmons has also found his form in the latter stages of the tournament and has scored 218 runs in 9 games at an average of 24.22. Both of them will be the main batsmen of the Knights.
Jermaine Blackwood (Price 8.5) will be our batsman from the Tallawahs. Blackwood has certainly solved the opening problem for the Tallawahs and has scored 99 runs in the last couple of innings as an opener. He will be a definite pick in our team.
TKR vs JAM Dream11 All-Rounders
Sunil Narine (Price 10.5) will be our all-rounder from the Knights. Narine just played four games in the league stages of the tournament and will definitely be back for this all-important knock-out game. He has scored 2 half-centuries already and has managed 140 runs with the bat whereas he has picked 5 wickets in his bowling as well. Sunil is a T20 superstar and cannot be dropped.
Andre Russel (Price 10.5) and Carlos Brathwaite (Price 9) will be our all-rounders from the Tallawahs. Russel has batted well in the tournament so far and is expected to get promoted in batting as well. He has scored 220 runs in just 7 innings at an average of 550 and can turn the game on his own whereas Brathwaite has bowled really well in the league stages and took 10 wickets in his bowling. Both of these all-rounders are very vital for this team’s success.
[Either one of Pollard or Russel could have made in our team. Pollard is not expected to bowl after the arrival of star players and will bat in the lower order as well whereas Russel is certainly a better batsman than him]
TKR vs JAM Dream11 Bowlers
Sandeep Lamichhane (Price 9) and Fidel Edwards (Price 8.5) will be our bowlers from the Tallawahs. Lamichhane has bowled wonderfully in this tournament and has picked 12 wickets in the tournament so far, his economy has been brilliant as well whereas Edwards is the ace pacer of the side and has picked 9 wickets in the tournament, he will bowl in the powerplay overs.
Fawad Ahmed (Price 8.5) and Khary Pierre (Price 8) will be our bowlers from the Knights. Fawad Ahmed has been the best wicket-taker for the Knights in the tournament and has picked 10 wickets so far in the tournament, he bowled a brilliant spell in the last game as well and would like to continue his good form whereas Pierre has also bowled some really good spells in the tournament and the surface here will suit him too.
[Mujeeb is the highest wicket-taker of the tournament with 15 wickets but has been dropped because of the credit issues and team balance]
Match Prediction: Trinbago Knight Riders will be the favourites to win this game.
