Match Preview

Caribbean Premier League is entering the crucial phase with the last 2-3 matches of the tournament where teams fight out for their place in qualification. The two teams in contention in this match are having completely opposite fortunes in the tournament so far and are placed at the two extremes of the points table.  Trinbago Knight Riders have won all their matches so far and looking dangerous at the moment. St. Kitts and patriots are currently at the bottom of the points table and their chances of qualification looks bleak and they depend on the results of other teams too. One more loss will officially knock the Patriots out of the tournament. To add to their agony Patriots will be facing unbeaten Knight Riders twice in their last 3 matches.

Patriots batting unit fared better in their last match with vital contributions from Joshua De Silva (59 runs) and Denesh Ramdin (33 runs). They stitched a 68-run partnership to take their team to a good total of 150 runs. Evin Lewis, and Ben Dunk have played some vital cameos but are yet to make a mark with an impact innings.

Their bowling unit started the match in promising note claiming 3 wickets inside the powerplay.  But the momentum swung towards the opposition as Nicholas Pooran teared apart the Patriots bowling attack. Rayad Emrit has been their bright spot in the bowling attack for the team. Spinner JR Jaggesar and Imran Khan have performed well in tandem with tight overs and wickets.

Top players to bet on:

Joshua De Silva – De Silva will be high on confidence after his fighting fifty in tough conditions to bat on. He was in and out of the team in the tournament so far and wioll look to seal his place with impact performances.

Rayad Emrit – Rayad Emrit has 10 wickets at an economy arte of less than 6 RPO. The skipper has been let down in the bowling department by the fellow pacers. He will look to continue his good showing to keep his team in the hunt.

Evin Lewis, Kieran Powell, Joshua Da Silva, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Ben Dunk, Sohail Tanvir, Rayad Emrit (c), Dominic Drakes, Imran Khan, Alzarri Joseph, Jon-Russ Jaggesar

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Hr Temp Rain W. speed W. direction Clouds

Weather Conditions

Tarouba weather has 50-60% chances of rain but we expect rain to stay away form this contest owing to the 10AM start.

Venue Details

The pitch at Brian Lara Stadium has improved a lot better for the second leg of the tournament with true bounce and pace on offer. Spinners are still preferred over the pacers owing to the dryness of the pitch. We can expect the scores to move up in the range of 160-180 runs in the upcoming matches.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option in T20 matches as the pitch remains the same throughout the match mostly. Batsmen can time their innings to chase down the target here.

Winning Prediction

Trinbago Knight Riders have everything in their favor starting from form, momentum, all-rounder depth and team balance, home conditions and experienced players. They were unfazed by the loss of their senior players and they are back to their full strength in the last match. Patriots on the other hand lack depth due to the absence of all-rounders and are in poor form and lack quality T20 players. We expect Trinbago Knight Riders to win this match and add onto Patriots misery.
