Cricket Match Preview:
The musical chair is likely to continue as four teams remain in contention for the playoff spot. All the teams, apart from Guyana Amazon Warriors and Jamaica Tallawahs, are still unsure about their future and the next few cricket games are going to decide that. Amidst this, an exciting cricket game awaits us between Barbados Tridents and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots.
Tridents are in with a very good chance of qualifying for the playoff considering the number of games they are still left with as well as the form they have shown in their last cricket game against Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR). Even if they win two out of their last three games, they will still give themselves a great chance.
Patriots had a poor last game of cricket against St Lucia Zouks. They were beaten by Zouks by 20 runs, which pushed them back in their quest of a playoff spot. They will be playing their last game of cricket and need to win to give themselves a strong chance. The loss would mean that they will have to wait and watch the other results.
Tridents were simply brilliant in their last cricket game against TKR. They not only defeated one of the finest sides of the tournament ever but they also defeated them big. The win margin was 63 runs, which is huge in the context of things. Courtesy of that win, Tridents have one of the best run-rates in the tournament, which might prove to be crucial in the coming days.
Patriots were outplayed by Zouks in their last cricket game. They were beaten by a fair margin of 20 runs and Patriots would have been disappointed. The bowling effort was lacklustre to begin with, as Patriots allowed Zouks to get to a score of 165, which was a good total. In reply, none of the Patriots batsmen could bat through and as a result, Patriots fell short. If Patriots want to keep their fate in their own hand, they will have to win the next game.
