In the previous game, Thomas scored 62 off 49 balls with the help of seven fours and two sixes. Opener Evin Lewis has not done well in the two games played so far this season. The team management will be hoping that Lewis finds a form with the bat in this game.
Middle-order batsman Mohammad Hafeez will be under focus as well, who failed to produce a score in the previous game. Hafeez is certainly an accomplished player in the T20 format and will be determined to put in a strong show with the bat in this game. Captain Carlos Brathwaite also perished for a duck and will need to get runs for the side in this game. Bowling all-rounder Fabian Allen put in a splendid effort with the bat. He scored 33 off 19 balls with the help of two fours and two sixes. It was due to his efforts that Patriots managed to post 153 runs in their allotted 20 overs. In the bowling department, pacer Sheldon Cottrell will need to pick up wickets with the new ball in this game. Rayad Emrit, Alzarri Joseph and Carlos Brathwaite are other bowling options for the side for this game.
