A host of international stars and T20 experts are on show here and we can expect a cracking contest. However, the Patriots have bolstered their squad recently and are slight favorites to come on top in this game.

Players who are expected to perform well as per BR vs SKN Dream11 Prediction.
Shai Hope: The wicket-keeper batsman is Mr. consistent. Although he plays at a rather slow strike rate, he can always be counted upon to deliver the points,
Chris Gayle: Gayle is the greatest T20 batter of all time and his records are legendary. Only the bravest will go without the Universe Boss in their fantasy teams.
Hayden Walsh Jr: The T20 game is tailor-made for wrist spinners and we are tipping Hayden to shine.
Dwayne Bravo: Bravo’s death bowling skills could come in handy here in a batsmen-friendly game.
