Defending champions St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have their task cut out as they take on the Trinbago Knight Riders in the 5th game of Caribbean Premier League 2022. The Patriots have lost both their games and went down against the Barbados Royals before this contest. The Knight Riders have started well, and the side comes here with a win against Saint Lucia Kings.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots would face the heat in this game as a loss here would put the side under immense pressure in their title defense. Their batsmen haven’t been in the best of form, and this would be worrying the management. The Knight Riders have a strong batting line-up, and they would like to make it count in this game. We should have a good game as both sides have some of the best players in this format of the game.
It has been two losses in a row for Dwayne Bravo’s side. They went down by 7 wickets against the Barbados Royals in their last game. The defending champions need to pull up their socks and come up with a better performance in this game. Their batsmen have struggled, and the side would expect a better show from them.
Andre Fletcher played a good knock in the last game, and he will look to offer a good start along with Joshua Da Silva. Darren Bravo, Dewald Brevis, and Sherfane Rutherford must do well in the middle order for the side to be in a comfortable position. They would also expect to see runs from the bats of Dwaine Pretorius, Dwayne Bravo, and Duan Jansen in this game.
Their bowlers would be under pressure to deliver in this game and the side would need a good start from Sheldon Cottrell and Jansen. Jaden Carmichael would have to improve his line in this game and do well in the middle overs. Dwayne Bravo, Akila Dananjaya, and Dwaine Pretorius have gone for runs and they need to bowl better spells.

Kieron Pollard’s side started the season with a win. They defeated the Saint Lucia Kings by 3 wickets in the last game. The bowling attack performed brilliantly to restrict the Kings to a small total. However, Pollard would want to see a better show from his batsmen as they nearly made a mess of the small run chase in the last game.
Tion Webster did well in the last game and the side would expect to see a good start to this game from him and Sunil Narine. The team has a strong middle order with Nicholas Pooran and Tim Seifert in the team and runs would be expected from them. Andre Russell, Kieron Pollard, and Seekkuge Prasanna are great finishers, and they would look to add quick runs down the order.
Jayden Seals would look to bowl better lines after leaking runs in the last game. He needs to deliver early wickets with Akeal Hosein. Narine bowled superbly and being the best bowler in the team has a very important role in this game. The side would also look for a good show from Anderson Phillip, Prasanna, and Shannon Lewis in this game.

It is expected to be overcast skies over St Kitts on September 4. The track has been a good one to bat on. Batsmen have played well as bowlers have found little assistance from the surface. The side batting first in this shall need 170 runs on the board to feel safe on this wicket.
Warner Park, St Kitts is a batsman’s paradise. The flat surface along with the fast outfield allows batsmen to score runs easily. There isn’t much there on this surface for the fast bowlers and they must rely on their variations. Spinners have enjoyed a good record as there is a turn on offer.
We have already seen good run chases in the tournament. The wicket is good for batting here and defending a score has always been a major challenge. There isn’t much on this surface for the bowlers and the side winning the toss in this game shall have no hesitation in bowling first.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots would face a massive challenge. Their confidence has been hurt by poor performances in the last two games. Batting hasn’t clicked for them, and this is something the side would need to fix in this game. Trinbago Knight Riders have a strong batting line-up and depth in their bowling. This would put them ahead of the Patriots in this game.
