St Kitts and Nevis Patriots bounced back into the top half of the points table with a close win against Barbados Tridents. They have a particular good net run rate of 0.784 understandably so due to the presence of power-hitters in Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis at the top of the order. A win in their next match, against Guyana Amazon Warriors, will not only take them out of the middle-order crowd but could possibly take them to the top of the table if the margin of their win is big enough. They'll lock horns with the Warriors on 28th August at Basseterre.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots were taken aback by an unbelievably lethal spell from Mohammad Irfan in their last game where he picked Evin Lewis and Chris Gayle to leave them tottering at 7 for 2 in the third over. Brandon Kings then overcame his pedestrian start into a big knock which got the Patriots back into the game.
Bowlers did particularly well to keep experienced batting lineup of Barbados Tridents away from scoring boundaries at critical junctures. They were reduced to 39 for 2 at one time with both their openers back in the hut. Holder and Hope tried to revive them back, but the former could only take them to 147 with his well-crafted fifty.
Chris and Evin Lewis failed to trouble the scorers much as they both departed inside the first three overs. Brandon King, DC Thomas, and Ben Cutting played good knocks to revive their team out of trouble as they finally cruised past the target with seven balls to spare.

St Lucia Stars kept their playoff hopes alive as their captain smashed Devendra Bishoo for 30 runs in the 18th over to hand Guyana Amazon Warriors a defeat after three consecutive wins.
While the Warriors spinners were continuously dealing damage in key phases of the run-chase, the rain made it difficult to grip the ball after which their spinners struggled. The match was evenly poised with 31 needed off the last three overs when Devendra Bishoo lost control of his flight and conceded thirty in his over which sealed the deal for the Stars.
Earlier with the bat, the Amazon Warriors failed to get going with none of their batsmen able to get past the quarter-century mark. Cameron Delport was their top-scorer with a laborious 33-ball 25 followed by Luke Ronchi who scored 24 off just 9 deliveries. They could score only 140 runs in their 20 overs which was eventually chased by Stars pretty easily.
CAK Walton, Luke Ronchi, Shimron Hetmyer, C Delport, RR Emrit, Jason Mohammed, Roshon Primus, Keemo Paul, Christopher Green, S Tanvir, Imran Tahir.
Both the teams are in a pretty similar spot with three wins in five games. Both will be looking to get ahead with a win to avoid last-minute competition for the top-four spots. With a strong batting lineup including Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis an having garnered some momentum with a win in their last match, the Patriots appear to be better placed to win the upcoming encounter.
