St Kitts and Nevis Patriots will take on Barbados Tridents in the eighth encounter of the 2019 Caribbean Premier League (CPL) at Warner Park, St Kitts on Wednesday (September 11). On Tuesday, the Patriots chased down Jamaica Tallawahs’ massive 242-run target to register their first win of the season, while Tridents have only played one game so far which they lost to Guyana Amazon Warriors by 47 runs.

Ground Details and Team Combination

Last night’s match between Patriots and Tallawahs justified why big hitters love this venue. A total of 37 sixes - the joint-most in a T20 match - were hit on Tuesday as the likes of Chris Gayle, Chadwick Walton, Devon Thomas, Evin Lewis, Fabian Allen, Laurie Evans and Shamarh Brooks brought the roof down at Warner Park. Gayle smoked 116 off just 62 deliveries but it was still not enough as Thomas (40-ball 71) and Lewis (18-ball 53) along with fiery cameos from Allen, Evans and Brooks helped Patriots record the second highest run chase in T20 history. Such was the brute that Alzarri Joseph (9.75) was the only bowler with an economy rate of less than 10.

Alex Hales, Johnson Charles and JP Duminy failed to contribute in Tridents’ first match and the team management will hope that the trio return to their best at a venue that will suit their game-style. With the number of power-hitters both teams possess, bowlers will once again find it extremely difficult to contain batsmen on this high-scoring ground. When it comes to this venue, picking up more batsmen and all-rounders make more sense.

Spinners didn’t have a great outing last night but the venue is known to provide some help to them in the past. In the last edition, they leaked runs at a decent economy of 7.47, compared to fast bowlers’ 9.58. Sandeep Lamichhane bowled only one over in the first match, but the leg-spinner will be expected to play a huge role if the Tridents want to put any brakes on Patriots’ formidable batting unit.

Captaincy Choices 

Fabian Allen: The 24-year-old all-rounder has been in amazing form for the Patriots this season. Following his knocks of 30 and 33 down the order, Allen was promoted to No. 4 in the last match. The right-handed batsman smashed 37* off just 15 balls and finished the match with seven deliveries to spare. He also took two wickets and that tells us how handy he can be in the shortest format of the game. Allen is also brilliant on the field, making him a complete package.

X-Factor

Evin Lewis: The dynamic left-handed opener slammed six maximums and three fours in his knock of 53 to get Patriots off to a flying start. He along with Thomas added 85 runs in just 5.3 overs to set a perfect platform for his team who were chasing a massive total. Lewis, who mostly relies on boundaries, will enjoy batting at Warner Park like we saw last night.

Alex Hales: The English batsman might have got out for a duck in his first game but Patriots will wary of the threat Hales can cause up the order. The right-hander has scored 751 runs in 25 T20s this year at a strike rate of just below 150. He enjoys batting against pacers, against whom he operates at a strike rate of over 150 compared to 131 against spinners. He averages 26.17 against spinners and Patriots can use someone like Allen against him.

Devon Thomas: With scores of 62 and 71 in his last two encounters, Thomas has given Patriots solidity up the order. The wicketkeeper-batsman is currently the second highest run-scorer this season with an average and strike rate of over 44 and 145 respectively.

Weather

It’s going to be partly cloudy in Basseterre and there are some chances of rain.

Predicted FanFight Team

Evin Lewis, Alex Hales, Devon Thomas, Johnson Charles, Laurie Evans, JP Duminy, Fabian Allen, Jason Holder, Sandeep Lamichhane, Alzarri Joseph, Roshon Primus.
