As we gradually enter the business end of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), teams like St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and Jamaica Tallawahs need to gear up before it’s too late. Both the teams are at the bottom of the table ahead of this fixture. The Patriots are currently at the bottom with only one win while Tallawahs are second last with only two wins and four points.
However, a win can change a lot for either of the teams, as four teams above the Patriots are tied on four points. There could be some interesting Cricket on the cards.
St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots
The Patriots started their campaign poorly as they went on to lose back to back two matches and came back with a win against the Tridents. However, that has been their only win till now. The last match the Patriots played was against the Zouks and they could only manage to post a low total of 110/19. The paltry total was chased down by the Zouks within 14.4 overs. Therefore, captain Rayad Emrit and others will have to come together and put their best foot forward against the Tallawahs.

The Tallawahs are also coming to this game on the back of a loss and will be desperate to get ahead of the curve as they are currently languishing at the bottom half of the points table. The Talllawahs were put in to chase down a tricky total of 148 which was posted by the Tridents batting first.
But wickets fell continuously throughout their innings as they could only manage 112/9. The likes of Jermaine Blackwood, Rovman Powell and Carlos Brathwaite have to step up with the willow if the Tallawahs want to turn the tide in their favour against the Patriots.
Head to head
Both the sides have faced each other 11 times in the past with Patriots holding the edge over the Tallawahs with six wins, while their opponent could only manage five.
St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots – 1.70
Jamaica Tallawahs – 2.17
