GUY vs SKN Dream11 Preview, Dream11 Prediction & analysis:


CPL 2021: GUY vs SKN 

Last year we saw some very low scoring games due to pitches being dead & slow. But this CPL will be a totally different ball game, like literally. ‘Smart ball’ will be used for the first time in a professional cricket tournament (was used for testing purpose in Marsh Cup) which has a chip inside (an original chip, not the 2000 Rs note chip) and will share data both after the release till pitching and also data after pitching. The smart ball will calculate speed, spin & power/bounce.

*Odean Smith was sent as a pinch hitter in the last game and scored 24(15) and also picked a couple of wickets. But will GUY continue to do this experiment? 

*As we discussed in the first game, Guyana’s number 3,4,5,6 will be very flexible and their order will depend on the matchups and the match situation in every game.

Section 6: Finding the fantasy value: 

Mohammad Hafeez: As we discussed in the last game as well, he is not in the best of form with the bat but is bowling regularly, has favourable matchups against the opposition lineup and is giving you all round value. Infact, even on an average day he earned 40 points in the last game. Default choice in small leagues. 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Dwayne Bravo (bowling first): Having Bravo as captain when he is bowling first, is a no brainer. In the last game, contributed with the bat as well with a well made 47*(35) 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Imran Tahir (bowling second): Was one of our top captaincy choice in the last game as well and with his current form and the opposition matchups, has to be one of your captaincy picks once again, if he bowls second. 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Romario Shepherd: Another quality and underrated allround option, is a big power hitter lower down the order and of course, a quality bowler. Earned 117 points in the last game, and will be a good captaincy choice once again, especially, bowling first. (along with Naveen) 

Captaincy suitability: Mini GL & GL.
