A recent washout in the 25th game of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League sent two teams out of contention for the semi-final spot. One of the teams was Barbados Tridents, who was struggling at the fifth spot on the points table with four points to their name, and the other team to be knocked out was St Kitts and Nevis Patriots.
The Patriots had a good start and just when it appeared that the Patriots could render the table wide open, the heavens opened up, sealing the four semi-final spots. The upcoming matches in the competition are going to be inconsequential as far as the qualifications for the plays are concerned. However, the knockout can not only affect the semi-final draws but would also want to finish their campaign on a high.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are set to play their last match of the tournament on 6th September 2020 against Trinbago Knight Riders. The match will be played at Brian Lara Cricket Academy, Tarouba.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots had only two points to their name before they were to play their previous match and needed to win all their fixtures to stay alive in the competition. While for a change they got off to a good start, weather hampered their progress as they were knocked out of the reckoning for the semi-final spot. The Patriots would now be looking to avoid the bottom of the table finish and nothing less than a win would suffice for that to happen.
Being put into bat first, their opening batsmen looked determined and fluent for the first time in the entire tournament. Chris Lynn, who never looked in control in the CPL up until then, smashed Mujeeb to all parts of the ground. The pair looked all set to take the game away from the Tallawahs, but the rain intervened right before the powerplay got completed with the Patriots' score reading 46 for 0 in 5.4 overs.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots were one of the most consistent sides of the tournament across the last three seasons, finishing among the top-four sides every single time. They have not only failed to qualify this time around but are also staring at the bottom of the table spot. They have accumulated just two points in nine matches and a loss here will keep them to the bottom. A win, however, will not necessarily push them to the fifth spot. They'd need Barbados Tridents to lose in their match against Jamaica Tallawahs as well.
The major reason for the Patriots' poor show in this season has been their batting, which seemed over-reliant on Evin Lewis and Chris Lynn. The pair, however, never looked comfortable at the top as the Patriots kept racking up losses. Their bowlers, as well, haven't really stepped up their game and that is apparent from the fact that the Patriots changed their playing eleven more often than any other team in the tournament.
On paper, they have a pretty good team, but the form their players have been in is forgetful. Barring Rayad Emrit, none of their bowlers features among the top twenty wicket-takers in the tournament. The Patriots have failed to pick up wickets in the powerplay and that has hurt them in the death overs. It hasn't been different with their batting either. Besides Evin Lewis, who is the fourth-highest scorer in the competition, none of their batsmen features in the top ten. With batting as well as bowling looking out of sorts, the Patriots will have to play extraordinary cricket in their next match to beat Trinbago Knight Riders, who are yet to be defeated in the tournament so far.

With eight wins in as many matches, Trinbago Knight Riders are without a doubt the strongest team in the tournament so far. Quite remarkably, they have gained in strength as the tournament has moved on. Their out-of-form players have started firing and that is evident by Trinbago's recent win, which came without the players that were already top performers for them. They have been so good in the tournament that they not only qualified before anyone else but also ensured that they will end up at the top of the table.
As was the case in their last match, we expect Trinbago Knight Riders to rest some of their key players. While that will reduce the Knight Riders' strength, but the magnitude of that reduction is likely to be minimal. Their last win was one of the most comprehensive wins in the season. Coincidentally, Trinbago's last win was against the Patriots and the Knight Riders are likely to be brimming with confidence when they walk into play the upcoming contest.
On paper, Trinbago Knight Riders have one of the best batting lineups in the tournament. With almost everyone capable of hammering sixes right from the first ball, they are not short on power. The likes of Colin Munro, Darren Bravo, and Sunil Narine have been exceedingly consistent in the tournament so far.
The thing that has worked the most for the Knight Riders is the teamwork in both the departments of the game. The Knight Riders do not have anyone among the top-five scorers in the tournament, but have three in top ten, with Kieron Pollard at 13th. However, Kieron Pollard and Darren Bravo are placed at the second and third spots on the list of players with the highest average in the tournament. With Lendl Simmons playing a fantastic 96-run knock, there is no apparent void in their batting lineup, which is certainly going to be tough one to bowl to.
Trinbago's most recent win came against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots on Thursday. Batting first on a good surface, the Knight Riders scored a challenging total of 174 for 4 with Lendl Simmons scoring 96. He was ably supported by Darren Bravo who scored 36. In reply, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots ended up with just 115 runs on the board. Sikandar Raza ran through the Patriots' batting lineup, picking 3 for 16 as the Knight Riders won the match by 59 runs.
Trinbago Knight Riders have everything you'd want in a team. They bat deep, but their batting has done so well that only seldom their lower middle-order players had to come to the rescue. They have a wide array of options to bowl if one of the bowlers has a bad day. All in all, they are a perfect team, and beating them will take a miraculous effort from any team in the tournament, let alone the Patriots who are placed at the bottom.

The conditions have favored the team batting first in the tournament so far primarily because of the surfaces getting slower. This is a day game and there will not be any dew to play to the chaser's advantage. Batting will certainly get difficult as the day progresses and we think the captain winning the toss would want to bat first.

While the surface has gotten slower and lower with every passing game, yesterday was the arguably the best surface of the tournament so far. It is pretty likely that the same strip will be used and batting shouldn't be too difficult. Having said that, the spinners will still have a huge role to play and will be more dominant than the seamers. This is a day game and there will not be any dew to assist the team batting second. A total of around 160 should be a par score here.

This is a battle between the two teams placed at the opposite ends of the table. While one team has almost everything going for them, the other has won only one game from nine matches. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are over-reliant on Chris Lynn and Evin Lewis, who hasn't been in the best of touches. Patriots' bowling hasn't fired either. Given the way the two teams have performed in the tournament so far, Trinbago Knight Riders should cruise to an easy win in this upcoming fixture.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are bound to finish at the bottom of the points table and that is largely due to the poor performance by their batsmen. On the other hand, the Knight Riders' batsmen have all looked in reasonably good form. Therefore, it would be safe to say and bet that the best batsman of the match would come from Trinbago Knight Riders' camp.
Evin Lewis and Chris Lynn both looked in pretty good touch in the previous match they played. The surface, as well, is likely to suit their style with ball coming on to the bat a bit better than it has in the tournament. The Knight Riders' opening pair, on the contrary, looks a bit unsettled. Betting on the experienced pair of Chris Lynn and Evin Lewis to do the job appears to be a pretty good proposition.
The surface is likely to be better for batting and no total is big enough when Lynn and Lewis get going. They looked in pretty good touch in their last touch and with a couple of good players to follow the dangerous openers, it shouldn't be a problem to score a total of 41 or over in the first six overs for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots.
