Kicking the final day of group stage games off on Sunday, the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots take on the Trinbago Knight Riders.
This is a game where absolutely nothing is at stake, the Patriots are already out of the tournament and the Knight Riders have already confirmed top position in the standings as we move into the knockout round.
However, if things go the way of the Knight Riders on Saturday then they could come here looking to secure a win in every single one of their 10 group games, so there is certainly incentive there.
For the Patriots, this has been an incredibly tough season where they have recorded just one win this season. They would love to make it two here, but of course it will be tough.
Patriots Team News & Form
The Patriots have simply fallen short in all aspects of the game during the CPL. They have struggled to put runs on the board and their bowlers have not been able to contain any batting line ups. This is certainly a season they will want to forget and go back to the drawing board to work out exactly what went wrong.
Their final challenge means they can play without any pressure on them, though things could not be any tougher as they come up against the best team in the tournament.
Knight Riders Team News & Form
The Knight Riders made it eight from eight on Wednesday with a huge win over this St Kitts & Nevis team. We saw the gulf in class there, the Knight Riders weren’t quite and full strength and anything like that would see them win this game comfortably once more.
Lendl Simmons was the star man that day, scoring 96 runs in his innings but there are plenty of other players who can contribute, this is a team full of star players.
At this moment, everything is going right for this team and they won’t want to disrupt that before the semi finals so look out for another complete performance.
Lendl Simmons was fantastic against the Patriots on Wednesday, he has the quality to do the same to them again.
His knock at the top of the order was exactly what any T20 team needs from their opening batsmen. He was watchful early, came to life after and put almost 100 runs on the board.
Simmons is one of many match winners in the Knight Riders team, he is our cricket betting tip of the day to be the star again on Sunday.
We can’t go against the Knight Riders here. They had far too much quality for the Patriots when these two teams met on Wednesday and we fully expect the same again.
If things go their way on Saturday, the Knight Riders will come here looking for their 10th win from 10 league games.
This is something they deserve and something we are backing them to do over the weekend.
