The defending champions will play their last match of the league stage as they take on Trinbago Knight Riders in Guyana. Even a win here will not secure a playoff spot for the Patriots.

For Dwayne Bravo’s team to finish in the top 4, they need to win this match and then Knight Riders should lose their last game of CPL 2022. All this seems very unlikely considering the Patriots’ poor run of form and the bowling consistency of Trinbago.

Unlike the rest of the venues in CPL 2022, the Providence Stadium Guyana has proved favourable for teams batting first. And now, with Knight Riders coming here with a solid bowling attack with Rampaul, Hossein, and Narine delivering consistently, Pollard will be confident of a win here.

For the Patriots, not only has the batting failed, but their bowlers have also struggled to make an impact in their recent outing. It will be a tough challenge for St Kitts & Nevis Patriots to secure a win in this do-or-die match.

Trinbago Knight Riders Preview

The bowlers got Knight Riders back to winning ways as they defeated Guyana and Jamaica in back-to-back matches. The batting had not recovered even during these wins and it was a major reason why Knight Riders lost by 1 run in their last game while chasing a below-par total of 148 runs.

Russell looked in great touch with 23 off 11 balls in his last innings and his return to form is great news for Knight Riders at this point in the league. If TKR make it to the playoffs, Russell will have a crucial role to play at number 7 as a match finisher. 

It has been a surprise to see Akeal Hossein coming in to bat ahead of Andre Russell in the last couple of games. The middle-order has been a headache for Knight Riders this season. Nicholas Pooran has failed to make an impact in the TKR lineup whether he opened the innings or played in the middle order. Pooran’s scores in his last three innings have been 0, 0, and 15. 

Tim Seifert and Colin Munro are other key players for Trinbago Knight Riders who haven’t scored at an impressive strike rate this season. Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, and Russell are the mighty hitters in the lower-order TKR have looked up to all these years. However, their lack of form has been a huge drawback for Trinbago in CPL 2022 and Russell’s last innings is a ray of hope going into the last two matches of this season. 

Trinbago Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Leonardo Julien, Nicholas Pooran, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert (wk), Andre Russell, Kieron Pollard (c), Sunil Narine, Akeal Hosein, Khary Pierre, Ravi Rampaul, Daryn Dupavillon

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots Preview

It has been a season to forget for the defending champions. With just 2 wins from 9 games so far, the Patriots have only an outside chance to reach the playoffs. A loss here will end their title defence.

The team got Cottrell back in the side and the left-arm pacer delivered a very economical spell for the Patriots. Rashid Khan also recovered quickly after his expensive spell against Saint Lucia Kings.

Overall, it was a decent bowling performance from SNP as they restricted the opposition to 156-3 bowling first. Nevertheless, a struggling batting lineup meant it wasn’t going to be an easy chase even if the target was below par.

The only ray of hope for SNP going into this match is the opposition’s batting form. TKR also lost their last match chasing a low target. With a variety in the bowling attack, Bravo would expect his team to gain an upper hand when bowling against the Knight Riders.

There are many match-winning batters in the top 5 of the SNP lineup - Fletcher, Evin Lewis, Rutherford, and Darren Bravo along with the 19-year-old Dewald Brewis. However, just like with the opposition, the Patriots’ experienced players have also failed to live up to their name and expectations in CPL 2022.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots Predicted Playing XI:

Andre Fletcher (wk), Evin Lewis, Dewald Brevis, Darren Bravo, Sherfane Rutherford, Kacy Carty, Dwayne Bravo (c), Rashid Khan, Duan Jansen, Akila Dananjaya, Sheldon Cottrell

Weather Conditions

The weather is expected to be mostly cloudy with a high of 26 degrees Celsius. The spinners will get a lot of help from the surface with a total of 12 wickets being taken by spinners in the last match at this venue.

Venue Details

While Guyana scored a competitive total batting first in their last game at this venue, it is not an easy pitch to bat on. Warriors may have the home advantage but other teams, especially, TKR and SNP are likely to struggle to score runs at the Providence Stadium where the average 1st inning score is 142 runs.

Toss: To Bowl

The last couple of matches played at this venue were won by teams batting first. Though both Bravo and Pollard are likely to opt to bowl first on winning the toss, given the nature of the pitch, the toss will not play such a huge role as it did at other venues. Historically, teams batting second here have won more matches than the teams batting first.

Both teams are quite similar in terms of their struggles in the batting department. Both have some T20 superstars in their lineup who are consistently failing to deliver. However, Trinbago Knight Riders have an in-form bowling attack and with Russell and other lower-order batters showing some promise in recent games, we reckon TKR will have a slight edge over SNP going into this match.

Our prediction is for Trinbago Knight Riders to win
