Cricket Match Preview:
The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) is up and running yet again and most sides have played their first cricket game. Guyana Amazon Warriors had a good start to their campaign as they got their first victory of the tournament against St Lucia Zouks. On the other hand, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are yet to win a cricket game and were humbled by Trinbago Knight Riders in the first cricket game.
Led by Shoaib Malik, Warriors played a smart game on a pitch which was not totally flat. Warriors’ batsmen did not go out of their way to go for glory shots and as a result, they were able to post a competitive total of 155 runs against Zouks. In the defence, when a team has the bowlers of the caliber of Shahdab Khan, Ben Laughlin and Chris Green, they will let you win games of cricket more often than not.
Patriots got a taste of the mighty Riders in the first cricket game of the tournament. Led by a new skipper, Carlos Brathwaite, Patriots restricted Riders to a reasonable total of 152 runs while bowling first. However, during the run chase, they never got going and despite the late flourish from Fabian Allen and Usama Mir, Patriots fell short by 11 runs.
The cricket game against Warriors is going to be another opportunity for Patriots to get into winning mode soon. If they can win the game against one of the most consistent sides of the tournament, it will boost their confidence a lot. In the last five cricket games between the two sides, Patriots have had a better run compared to Warriors. Patriots have won three out of last five cricket games against their opponents. It is going to be interesting to watch how Carlos Brathwaite leads his troops in an important game.
