SLK vs BR Dream11 Match Prediction Choices For Captain And Vice-Captain

Roston Chase – Captain

Roston Chase’s performance in the opening match of the season was nothing short of remarkable. With a stunning all-round show, he not only contributed with the ball, grabbing 3 wickets for 39 runs, but also displayed his batting prowess with a commanding 53 off just 31 balls. He is a top captain pick for your fantasy squad. 

Johnson Charles – Vice-captain 

Johnson Charles, an integral part of SLK’s top-order batting lineup, emerges as a key player for this Dream11 match. With an impressive track record of amassing 345 runs in the previous season, his role in establishing a solid foundation at the beginning of the innings holds immense importance for SLK’s prospects in the upcoming game. He can be a wise pick for the vice-captaincy role.
