St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have been the tremendous form and they would aim to continue with the same momentum as they take on the Barbados Royals in the 14th game of the Caribbean Premier League 2021. The Patriots come into this contest with a win against the Jamaica Tallawahs while the Barbados Royals went down against the same side by a big margin in their last game.
The St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have dominated the tournament so far winning all the four games the side has played. Their batting looks strong, and the side would like to carry on with the same momentum. For the Royals this will be an uphill challenge as one more loss can nearly close all hopes of making it to the semifinals and they need to put up a good show in this game.
Dwayne Bravo’s side continues to impress and comes here with four consecutive wins. They defeated Jamaica Tallawahs in the last game convincingly by six wickets. Their batting looks in great form as the side managed to chase down a massive total in the last game without any trouble. Bravo would want his players to win this game which would put them in a comfortable position on the points table.
Openers Evin Lewis and Devon Thomas have been getting starts for the side and a strong partnership would be expected from them. Sherfane Rutherford is in tremendous form and adds strength to the middle order alongside Ravi Bopara and Asif Ali. In Dwayne Bravo, Fabian Allen and Dominic Drakes, the side has a very good hitters of the ball to follow.
Sheldon Cottrell and Fawad Ahmed were expensive in the last game and tight spells would be expected from them early on as the Royals have good hitters of the ball at the top. Paul van Meekeren has been bowling economical spells and along with Bravo and Allen shall aim to keep the flow of runs under check in the middle overs.

Jason Holder would have to inspire confidence in his players as they go into the 5th game of the season. They have won only one game so far and come here with a 6-wicket loss against the Jamaica Tallawahs. The side had lost to the Patriots earlier in the season and Holder would like to see a spirited performance from his players as they go into this must-win game.
Openers Shai Hope and Johnson Charles have been offering poor starts and the side needs to fix this problem going into this game. In the middle order Kyle Mayers and Holder have been in poor form and they would have to deliver here. Glenn Phillips has done well, and the side would like to see good show from Azam Khan who comes here with runs in the last game and Raymon Reifer.
Mohammad Amir has bowled well but has not found good support from the other end and this has been hurting the side. Holder will have to make use of his experience and get wickets with the new ball. Oshane Thomas, Hayden Walsh and Raymon Reifer have been inconsistent so far and better spells would be needed from the against the in-form Patriots.

We expect to see warm and humid evening at St Kitts on September 03 and the surface would be slightly difficult to bat on as the track has gone slower. Batsmen who get their eyes set in shall do well in the game. The side batting first in this game would be happy to put up 170 runs on the board.
Warner Park, St Kitts has small boundaries and a fast outfield which has allowed lots of runs to be scored on this surface. There is hardly any assistance for the fast bowlers, and they need to use their variety to do well on this track. We have seen spinners enjoy bowling here as the slowness in the surface helps them.
Most teams have preferred to bat first on winning the toss since the surface has gone slower as the games have progressed making chases difficult. There isn’t much for the bowlers here on a fresh wicket. The side that wins the toss in this game should have no hesitation in opting to bat first.
Barbados Royals have a mountain to climb. They have not got their basics right so far and failed to execute their plans. Their top order has been inconsistent, and this is something the side would have to address going into this contest. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are in great form with their batsmen and bowlers dominating in most of the games they have played, and this would make them favorites to win here.
