Saint Lucia Kings would be very confident going into the 17th game of the Caribbean Premier League 2021 after their win against the table-toppers St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. It was a convincing show from the side as they won the game by 100 runs after all the inconsistency they had shown in the previous games. The Patriots had an off day against the run of play.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have looked the best side this season and loss in the last game can be considered an aberration. Their poor form with the ball came to haunt them in the last game and this is one area that the side would look to improve upon. Saint Lucia Kings would look to carry their momentum forward and this makes it the perfect recipe for a good contest.
Dwayne Bravo’s side suffered the first loss of the season in the last game. Their good batting had shielded their weakness with the bat but that wasn’t the case in the last game. Bravo wouldn’t want his side to lose confidence by their performance in the previous game. He would like to go hard at the Kings and win the next game and regain the momentum.
Evin Lewis did well in the last game and shall look to provide a good start along with Devon Thomas. Chris Gayle needs to show his experience here in the middle order along with in-form Sherfane Rutherford and Ravi Bopara. The side would also like to see runs from Fabian Allen and Dominic Drakes down the order.
Their bowling has been troubling the side in most of the games and it took a beating allowing Kings to put up 224 on the board. Sheldon Cottrell and Naseem Shah need to correct their line and get the side early wickets. Bravo and Fawad Ahmed are experienced bowlers and have an important role to play here. Fabian Allen and Drakes have been expensive, and the side would expect a better show from them.

Faf du Plessis’ side hadn’t gone into the last game as favorites, but the side produced its best performance of the season led front the front by the skipper. The 100-run win would have surely added to the side’s confidence. However, going by the Patriots’ form in the series, this game would an equally big challenge for the side, and it remains to be seen if they can make it two in two.
Faf du Plessis scored a brilliant hundred in the last game, and he would look to provide the side with a good start in the company of Andre Fletcher. Roston Chase has looked good, and the side would like to see him guide the middle order that has Keron Cottoy and Tim David. In Keemo Paul and Samit Patel, they have good hitters of the ball to follow but the side needs to maintain consistency which they have lacked so far.
Alzarri Joseph and Wahab Riaz bowled brilliantly with the new ball and the side would be needed from the side in this game. Chase has been expensive, and he will need to keep the run-rate under check in the middle overs with Keemo Paul. In Kesrick Williams and Tim David the side possesses good variety in its attack.

It will be a hot and humid evening at St Kitts on September 05 and the wicket is expected to be a good one to bat on. We have seen slowness in the surface and batsmen need to get their eyes set in before playing their strokes. The side that bats first in the game shall be happy to put up 180 runs on more on this wicket.
Warner Park, St Kitts has a good batting surface and fast outfield and in perfect conditions, lots of runs are scored at this venue. Fast bowlers have struggled on this surface as they don’t get much bounce or movement off the surface. It has been a happy hunting ground for the spinners as the ball tends to turn sharply and surprise the batsmen.
We have already seen big scores in this tournament and one in the previous game between the two sides. The wicket has played well early in the game allowing batsmen to score runs. It gets slower in the second innings making run chases difficult. The side winning the toss would most likely elect to bat first.
Saint Lucia Kings did well in the last game to surprise everyone and win. They put behind their poor form and batted brilliantly. However, their weakness in the lower middle order has been one of their major problems and the side would need to fix this here. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots would like to put behind their loss in the previous game. They have a very strong batting line-up, and this would put them slightly ahead in the contest.
