Weather Conditions

Trinidad is expected to have a slightly overcast condition with 20% chances of rain. The ball might swing and seam around earlier and fast bowlers will look to take advantage of it.

Venue Details

Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad is a very lively ground with pace, bounce, and carry. We expect pace bowlers to have more impact on this pitch than the spinners. The average score in this pitch last season is 164 runs.

Toss: To Bowl

Teams are confident of chasing any big total in T20s nowadays and the overcast conditions will challenge the batsmen early in the match so we expect both teams to chase if they win the toss.

BT vs SKNP Winning Prediction

Barbados Tridents have a better batting line-up when compared to St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots as the latter lack firepower in the middle order. Patriots possess a dream pace bowling quartet by lack quality spinner baring Ish Sodhi while Tridents have a good mix of pace & spin bowlers in the team. Patriots also lack depth in their batting line-up with no quality all-rounder who can contribute with bat and ball effectively.

Barbados Tridents to win the match!
