St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots vs Barbados Tridents: CPL Match 8 Preview

Match details

Series/tournament name: Caribbean Premier League 2019

Venuee: Basseterre, St Kitts

Date: 11 September , 2019

Time: 3:30 a.m. IST

Preview: 

While the Patriots have lost both their matches, Barbados Tridents have lost their only game in the season so far. Only two teams have notched up wins in the Caribbean Premier League season so far and these two teams get a chance to become the third as they tussle it out at St Kitts on Wednesday. Batting was the issue for both sides in their matches so far this season but both have potent line-ups and will hope their men step up to the task.

Weather report: Humidity is high but the weather is clear for this fixture.

Pitch report: The pitch is expected to be on the slower side although with the new ball it could nip around a bit. Batting won't be overly tough, though and both teams will want to get off to a flying start.

Injuries and replacements: 

No known injuries

Probable Playing XI:

Barbados Tridents:

The explosive power of Alex Hales and Johnson Charles at the top is Barbados' biggest plus. Add in the experience of Jean-Paul Duminy and Jason Holder and the explosiveness of Jonathan Carter and Ashley Nurse and you have a decent batting line-up. Can they click in sync, though? They are likely to be unchanged for this fixture.

Alex Hales, Johnson Charles, Leniko Boucher, Jean-Paul Duminy, Jonathan Carter, Jason Holder, Ashley Nurse, Roshon
