Cricket Free Tips | CPL 2020: Match 29, St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots vs Trinbago Knight Riders
The 29th match of Caribbean Premier League 2020 will be held at the Brian Lara Stadium, played between St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots and Trinbago Knight Riders. The match will be kicked off on 6 September (Sunday) at 20:00 (GMT+6).
Trinbago Knight Riders might well write history if they are playing in the playoffs, the way they’ve been playing at the moment. They ‘re on their way to a perfect group stage record, winning 9 out of 9 and securing their first semi-final spot. They looked like the tournament’s best team, and were firing on all the cylinders. They had no shown kinks in their armor.
If Trinbago Knight Riders is one side of the coin, then St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots are the other side of it. Having recorded a solitary victory in their campaign with a match to go, they’ll try to rescue their pride in this one. St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots will start this match as the heavy underdogs but will look to interrupt the momentum of the League leaders in Trinbago Knight Riders just before the knockouts.
Rain might not play its part in Sunday’s game if weather reports are to be believed. A few clouds are predicted but nothing besides that. Temperatures are forecast to stay around the late 20 degree Celsius.
This season the Brian Lara Stadium pitch has behaved rather strangely. First batting teams were heavily favoured while chasing is a sin to commit. But now the track seems to be more supporting bowlers rather than the batsmen.
