Saint Lucia Kings face an uphill challenge as they take on the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the 15th game of the Caribbean Premier League 2021. The Kings come here with a big win against the Guyana Amazon Warriors that would have boosted their confidence, but they are up against a very strong side. The Patriots defeated the Barbados Royals in the last game in a close game.
The St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are looking in excellent form and the side has won all the five games they have played so far. Their batting line-up is looking super strong at the moment and the side would like to leverage that here and book a berth in the semifinals. It will be interesting to see the kind of show the Saint Lucia Kings put up in this game.
Faf du Plessis’ side has been on and off with its form. They come after a convincing 51-run win against the Guyana Amazon Warriors but most of their players have failed to show their consistency in the last four games. It would be a big challenge for them against the Patriots and du Plessis would like his side to stand up to the challenge in this game.
Andre Fletcher has been in good form, but the side would be concerned about the form of du Plessis who hasn’t done well so far. In the middle order Roston Chase played well in the last game and needs to set up partnerships with Tim David and Mark Deyak. Samit Patel and Keron Cottoy shall need to free their arms and improve the scoring rate in the final overs.
Jeavor Royal and Obed McCoy bowled well with the new ball in the last game, and they need to grab early wickets to put pressure on the Patriots. Alzarri Joseph bowled brilliantly in the last game and his side would want him to repeat the same magic. In Kesrick Williams, Chase and Deyal they have good variety in their bowling attack and need to use it well to win this game.

There seems to be no stopping for Dwayne Bravo’s side right now. The side has won all the five games it has played in this tournament so far and comes here with a 2 wicket win against the Barbados Royals. Bravo would want his side to continue with the same show in the next game which would nearly assure them of a berth in the semifinals of the tournament.
The side would expect a good start from Evin Lewis and Devon Thomas and expect them to play big innings here. Chris Gayle return to the side adds lot of firepower to the side along with Sherfane Rutherford who has done well in the tournament. Down the order the side would be expecting a strong show from the likes of Ravi Bopara, Fabian Allen and Dwayne Bravo who are known for their clean hitting abilities.
Their bowling hasn’t been at its best and the side would expect a strong show from Sheldon Cottrell and Naseem Shah with the new ball. Paul van Meekeren has done well and the same would be expected from him in the middle overs. Bravo would be confident after his four-wicket haul in the last game and adds depth to the attack along with Dominic Drakes and Fabian Allen.

We expect to see warm and humid afternoon at St Kitts on September 04 and batsmen would have to be watchful in the early overs of the game as the track has turned dual paced. Spinners are enjoying bowling on this surface and the side batting first in the game would be happy with a target of 170 on the board.
Warner Park, St Kitts is a great venue for batsmen and big scores have been out up at this venue in the past. There is no support for the fast bowlers on this surface. Spinners on the other hand have done well here as the odd ball can stop on the batsmen and turn sharply leading to false strokes.
We are seeing a change in trend in this season of the CPL where most teams are preferring to bat first on winning the toss. The wickets have been good for batting in the early overs of the game and offered turn in the second innings. The side winning the toss here is most likely to opt for batting first.
Saint Lucia Kings have momentum on their side leading up to this game. But the side has so far failed to show consistency. Their middle order has looked shaky, and this has caused problems for the side. They would have to correct on this problem to win the game here. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots haven’t put a foot wrong and look in tremendous form and this would make them the outright favorites to win this game.
