As the second week of the Caribbean Premier League comes to an end, we witness an exciting clash between St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and Trinbago Knight Riders. The fixture is scheduled to take place on Monday at Werner Park.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are currently at the 4th position in the Point Table with two losses and no wins and they have displayed a net run rate of -2.499. The top bookmakers in India have CPL odds with them.
Trinbago Knight Riders are currently in the fifth position in the point table and they have played only one fixture which ended up with no result because of weather conditions.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are not having a good season this year. They started their campaign with two consecutive fixtures getting abandoned because of rains but post that, the team witnessed two consecutive losses.
The team has a major void in their middle order and in their bowling segment. Skipper Evin Lewis and Andre Fletcher are the only ones who have shown some potential in batting. Team management has high expectations from Dominic Drakes in the bowling department.
Skipper Evin Lewis might give a chance to Blessing Muzarabani to strengthen the bowling.
Predicted Lineup: Andre Fletcher, Evin Lewis (c), Joshua Da Silva (wk), Corbin Bosch, Ambati Rayudu, Sherfane Rutherford, George Linde, Dominic Drakes, Sheldon Cottrell, Blessing Muzarabani, Oshane Thomas
Technically, the tournament has not yet started for Trinbago Knight Riders as their first fixture ended up with no result because of rain. The team has a strong middle order with Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard, and Andre Russell in the team. Sunil Narine will be the leading man in the bowling department with Jayden Seales and Kadeem Alleyne as the pace bowlers.
The team is yet to try different combinations and hence they will be going ahead with the best possible playing XI.
Predicted Lineup: Martin Guptill, Mark Deyal, Chadwick Walton (wk), Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard (c), Andre Russell, Dwayne Bravo, Sunil Narine, Akeal Hosein, Jayden Seales, Kadeem Alleyne
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have a major weakness in their middle order and their bowlers have displayed higher economy. Knight Riders, on the other hand, have some ferocious batters in the middle order and a good depth in bowling. We predict a win for Trinbago Knight Riders on Monday.
