St Lucia Kings vs St Kitts & Nevis Patriots, CPL 2021, Match 15: Fantasy Preview

Here are a few tips that might help you in creating your fantasy team for the 15th match of CPL 2021 between St Lucia Kings and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots

NOTE: All stats updated till CPL 2021, Match 14

St Lucia Kings (SLK) take on St Kitts & Nevis Patriots (SKNP) in Match 15 of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021 at Warner Park, St Kitts. The Kings have won just two of their four matches so far, while the Patriots have maintained a 100% record in the tournament, winning all their five matches. As a result, St Kitts sit comfortably at the top of the table with 10 points from five matches, while St Lucia sit in fifth place with four points from as many matches. 

It’s even-steven when it comes to the head-to-head contests between the two teams in the CPL. Both of them have won five matches apiece, however, the Kings have a slight edge, having won three of their last five matches against the Patriots.

Suggested teamWhile you could go for the above team, you also have the option of choosing your own team from Cricket.com’s Fantasy Research Centre. You can use this tool to build your team with the help of algorithms. Based on your preferences, the platform will guide you to create the ideal fantasy XI.

Ground details

The fast bowlers have absolutely dominated at this venue this season, accounting for more than 72% of the wickets. While they may have conceded runs at 8.3 an over, which is significantly higher than the economy rate of spinners (6.5), that should not deter you from stocking your team with pacers as economy rate is of very little significance in fantasy cricket.

Moreover, the pacers have struck once every 16.2 deliveries, 22.4 runs apart and the corresponding numbers for the spinners are 24.5 and 26.4 respectively, which further emphasises on the important role the fast bowlers will play in this game.

Four out of the last five matches (including the tied match) have been won by the team chasing. Winning the toss and bowling should ideally be the way to go.

Captain

Sherfane Rutherford has three fifties from five innings this season and despite getting out to a low score in the previous match, one can expect him to bounce back in this match to keep Patriots’ winning streak going. With 176 runs at a strike-rate of 144.26, the southpaw is the leading run-scorer in this edition of the tournament and will look to remain there with many more stellar performances.

X-Factors

When the team needed him, Roston Chase really stepped up to the plate to score his highest T20 score, finishing with 85 off just 50 deliveries, which included seven sixes and six fours. He also chipped in with the crucial wicket of Nicholas Pooran. While Chase has picked up at least a wicket in all the matches he has played in CPL 2021, his batting was a matter of concern, but he roared back to form with a match-winning knock. Can we expect more of the same from Chase in this match?

After taking a pounding in his first game against Jamaica, fast bowler Obed McCoy bounced back with an excellent spell in the next match. He has five wickets from his two matches in CPL 2021 so far and he will only add many more to his tally as the tournament rolls on. In T20 cricket since 2020, McCoy has picked up 24 wickets at 18.1 from 16 matches, striking once every 13.7 deliveries, which are impressive numbers. 

Our Criclytics Player Projector predicts McCoy will fetch 59-89 points in this match

With most T20 wickets to his name, Dwayne Bravo is a must-have in your fantasy side, given the fact that he can not just change the curse of the game with the ball, but can smash a few around the park to tilt the game with the bat as well. Bravo has already picked up eight wickets at 17.87 in five matches so far and has already played a couple of cameos – including an unbeaten 47 off 35 in Patriots’ first match of the tournament against Barbados. Among pacers, only Kesrick Williams has more wickets (19) than Bravo (17) in CPL since 2020.

Our Criclytics Player Projector predicts McCoy will fetch 41-73 points in this match
