The eighth match of the Caribbean Premier League 2019 will be played between St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and Barbados Tridents at Warner Park in Basseterre.
Just after the match against Jamaica Tallawahs, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots will face Barbados Tridents the next day. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have had an upper hand over Barbados Tridents in the recent encounters and have won four of the last five matches against them. In the last four games that they have played against the Tridents, the Patriots have registered victories in all of them.
While St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have lost both their first two matches of the season, Barbados Tridents could not get over the hurdle of Guyana Amazon Warriors in their first and only match of the season till now and were beaten by 47 runs.
Skipper Jason Holder and Roshan Primus were good for the Tridents with the ball but the Warriors were still able to put up 180 runs on the board. The Tridents did not get off to a good start and lost star opener Alex Hales on the very first ball of the match. They could never recover from that blow as despite contributions from Johnson Charles, Leniko Boucher, Jean-Paul Duminy and a 25-ball 40 from Ashley Nurse towards the end, they fell way short of the target.
Fabian Allen and Sheldon Cottrell have been the leading performers for the Patriots with bat and ball respectively.
Let’s have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots- Kjorn Ottley, Evin Lewis, Mohammad Hafeez, Jason Mohammed, Devon Thomas, Carlos Brathwaite, Fabian Allen, Usama Mir, Rayad Emrit, Alzarri Joseph, Sheldon Cottrell
Barbados Tridents- Alex Hales, Johnson Charles, Leniko Boucher, Jean-Paul Duminy, Jonathan Carter, Jason Holder, Ashley Nurse, Roshon Primus, Raymon Reifer, Josh Lalor, Sandeep Lamichhane
