Trinbago Knight Riders vs Saint Lucia Kings, 1st Semifinal, CPL 2021: Fantasy Preview

Here are a few tips that might help you in creating your fantasy team for the first CPL 2021 semi-final between Trinbago Knight Riders and Saint Lucia Kings

In 2020, Trinbago Knight Riders were brilliant. They completed their invincible season by beating St Lucia Kings (St Lucia Zouks then) in the final. If it was an indication of how IPL investment can be a crucial modifying factor in fortunes, here is another deck - both teams are going to face off once again in another important fixture. This time though in the first semi-final of the CPL 2021. While the sides have an upward trajectory since a few initial stumbling, it remains to be seen how they absorb the knockout pressure.

GROUND DETAILS

All the matches of the ongoing CPL 2021 have been played at Warner’s Park in St Kitts and 9035 runs have been scored at a run rate of 7.9. So it is not necessarily a bowling-friendly wicket as many made it out to be but there is a fundamental difference between this ground and other grounds on the Caribbean shore. It is toss agnostic and favours the pacers more than the tweakers.

The average first innings score here this CPL is 161 as compared to the average winning score of 174. However, chasing hasn’t been that easy here with 148 being the average target chased. It doesn’t matter what you opt for at the toss, with 49% of the matches won by the team batting 1st as compared to 51% chasing.

SUGGESTED TEAM

While 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.

Captain

Roston Chase has been magnificent in the CPL so far and is currently the highest run-scorer of the competition with 367 runs from nine games at an average of 52.42. He has a strike rate of 147.98 to go with four fifty-plus scores so far, which makes him the perfect candidate to go for as the captain of the side. Further, he has accumulated 74.6 average fantasy points in the last five games, which is just magnificent.

Our Criclytics Player Projections predict Chase to score 18-26 runs and pick 1-2 wickets

X-Factors

Colin Munro is currently the highest run-scorer for the Trinbago Knight Riders team and is the sixth-highest run-scorer in the competition. He has scores like 47, 41*, 34, 32, and 40* in his last few matches and despite his low strike rate, scoring runs hasn’t been a problem for the Kiwi man. He has 42.8 average fantasy points in the last five games that make him a solid contender to fetch maximum points on your Fantasy side.

Our Criclytics Player Projections predict Munro to score 22-34 runs

With 18 wickets in 9 games, Ravi Rampaul is the highest wicket-taker in the ongoing CPL alongside Romario Shepherd and averages a cool 14.00 with the ball. Riding on his performance, he has been picked in the Windies side for the T20 World Cup and will be a great asset for Trinbago Knight Riders in the semi-final.

Our Criclytics Player Projections predict Rampaul to pick 0-1 wickets

Here are the top-11 Criclytics Projections:

Probable XIs:

Trinbago Knight Riders: Lendl Simmons, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Colin Munro, Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard (capt), Tim Seifert, Sunil Narine, Akeal Hosein, Jayden Seales, Ali Khan, Ravi Rampaul

St Lucia Kings: Andre Fletcher, Samit Patel, Mark Deyal, Roston Chase, Tim David, David Wiese, Keemo Paul, Rahkeem Cornwall, Wahab Riaz, Alzarri Joseph, Jeavor Royal
