St Kitts and Nevis Patriots
Patriots have qualified for the playoffs and they did it in some fashion this season. After struggling for the first few cricket games, they turned around their fortune and managed to sneak in on the third spot.
It will be more than a week since Patriots played their last group game of cricket. This could work either way as they have got some much-needed rest which should put them in good stead, or it could make them lose the momentum that they had in the later stages of the group game.
Our prediction guru reckons they are going to go with the same playing eleven that played their last cricket game.
Here is our prediction of St Kitts and Nevis Patriots’ playing XI:
- Carlos Brathwaite
- Mohammad Hafeez
- Sheldon Cottrell
- Evin Lewis
- Laurie Evans
- Fabian Allen
- Rayad Emrit
- Usama Mir
- Devon Thomas
- Alzarri Joseph
- Jeremiah Louis
Trinbago Knight Riders
TKR are going to be led by Keiron Pollard once again in this cricket game. He has an extremely difficult challenge of handling the side low on confidence because of back-to-back losses.
It is seldom for a side to lose momentum like TKR does in this season. They just have not managed to win a game of cricket since their past six cricket games and that is never good news for any side.
Our prediction is of the inclusion of Sunil Narine in the playing eleven if he has gotten fit, otherwise, they would be going with the same playing eleven as the last cricket game.
Here is our prediction of Trinbago Knight Riders’ playing XI:
- Lendl Simmons
- AJ Hosein
- Keiron Pollard
- Jimmy Neesham
- Colin Munro
- JPR Searles
- Dinesh Ramdin
- Chris Jordan
- Khary Pierre
- Ali Khan
- Darren Bravo
Expert Prediction: STKNP vs TKR
No side has had as much success as TKR in this tournament. However, despite qualifying for the playoffs this year, this has to be one of their worst performances in the league. They have won just four games of cricket this year and all of those wins came in the first four games. In many ways, their performance this year mirrors with their sister franchise team Kolkata Knight Riders’ performance in the IPL this year. Our prediction guru reckons they are likely to suffer the same fate as them as well.
In many ways, Patriots turned around their campaign from the game against TKR this season. After TKR posted a total of 216 runs on the board, Patriots managed to tie the game and ended up as the winner by winning the super over game of cricket. Since then, while TKR have been on a downward journey, Patriots, on the other hand, only went higher.
Despite history leaning towards TKR in this encounter, our expert prediction is of a victory for Patriots. For TKR, too many games have been lost, a lot of injuries have happened, and this just does not seem like being their year. Patriots should be happier about their chance and must make it big.
Toss prediction? – The team winning the toss will look to bat first. Pakistan team likes to bat first and then let their bowlers dominate. Sri Lanka too on the other hand in the absence of their top players would like to bat freely without any pressure.
