It is the big final of the season and the Saint Lucia Kings and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots would be aiming at their first title win. Both sides have registered convincing win in the semifinals. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots had defeated the Guyana Amazon Warriors while the Saint Lucia Kings knocked out the defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders in an exciting game. 

The Saint Lucia Kings had defeated St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in both the games played earlier in the season. The side would like to draw inspiration from that win. However, the Kings are without their regular skipper Faf du Plessis who is out with an injury. Both these sides haven’t won the title yet and hence there would be pressure on them, and this is likely to make this game interesting.

St Lucia Kings Preview

With Faf du Plessis out with an injury, Andre Fletcher is leading the side and he would be happy to have knocked the defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders out of the competition. It was a convincing 21 run win for the side in the semifinal. Fletcher would like to take inspiration from their two wins against the Patriots earlier in the season. 

Andre Fletcher and Rahkeem Cornwall missed out in the last game and the side would be expecting a strong start from them in this game. Roston Chase has been in brilliant form this tournament, and he would look to set up partnerships with Mark Deyal and David Wiese in this game. Tim David and Keemo Paul add good firepower to the batting down the order. 

Their bowlers have been expensive in the last few games and the side would need tight bowling with the new ball from Alzarri Joseph and Wahab Riaz. Weise grabbed 5 wickets in the last game, and this would add to his confidence. The side would also like to see better efforts with the ball from Kadeem Alleyne, Jeavor Royal, and Chase

St Lucia Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Andre Fletcher (c & wk), Rahkeem Cornwall, Mark Deyal, Roston Chase, David Wiese, Tim David, Keemo Paul, Kadeem Alleyne, Jeavor Royal, Alzarri Joseph, Wahab Riaz

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots Preview

Dwayne Bravo’s side has made a powerful entry into the final of the tournament. It was a great show by the side in the semifinal against the Guyana Amazon Warriors which they won by 7 wickets. Their batting line-up has done well in the season, and they would need to deliver the goods here. Bravo would be aware of the strengths of Saint Lucia Kings as they had lost both the games against them during the league stage.

Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis are looking in excellent form and the side would like to see a strong start from them in this game. Bravo played well in the last game, and he would look to build partnerships with Sherfane Rutherford and Joshua Da Silva in the middle order. Dominic Drakes, Sheldon Cottrell, and Naseem Shah have good batting skills and they must play the finishers’ role perfectly in this big game. 

It is their bowling attack that needs to rise to the challenge given the form Saint Lucia Kings’ batsmen are in at the moment. Jon-Russ Jaggesar did well in the last game, but Cottrell needs to bowl tighter lines here. Fawad Ahmed needs to keep the line tight in the middle overs. The side would also need tight spells from Naseem Shah and Drakes in this game. 

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots Predicted Playing XI:

Dwayne Bravo (c), Evin Lewis, Chris Gayle, Joshua Da Silva (wk), Sherfane Rutherford, Fabian Allen, Dominic Drakes, Sheldon Cottrell, Naseem Shah, Jon-Russ Jaggesar, Fawad Ahmed

Weather Conditions

It is expected to overcast skies over St Kitts on September 15, and this might just offer some assistance to the bowlers who have otherwise struggled. The ball would come onto the bat nicely and allow the batsmen to play their strokes. A score of more than 180 runs would be a fighting total on this surface.

Venue Details

Warner Park, St Kitts has a batting-friendly track and also a fast outfield and this has allowed batsmen to score huge runs on this surface in the past. Fast bowlers find it challenging to bowl on this surface that doesn’t have much swing on offer. Spinners have had success at this venue as the odd ball and turn and stop on the batsmen.

Toss: To Bat

There is nothing in this surface for the bowlers and the two semifinals saw big scores being put up by the batsmen. We hope to see a similar surface in this game. The side winning the toss here would have little hesitation in opting to bat first in the game.

It will be a high-pressure contest as both sides haven’t won the title in the past. Saint Lucia Kings had defeated the Patriots in both the games earlier, but the side looks weak without the services of their regular skipper. Their bowling attack lacks variety, and this is a concern for the side. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots on the other hand come here with all their bases covered. They have a strong top order, and this would put them slightly ahead of the Kings to win the title.
