The pitch in St Kitts has been a sporting one thus far in the tournament. In the night games, dew has played a major role. Therefore, batting second should be the way forward. The short boundaries and fast outfields won’t make life any easier for the bowlers.

Probable best batter of the match
Evin Lewis — St Kitts and Nevis Patriots
Evin Lewis has performed exceptionally for the Patriots in the CPL thus far. He has opened the batting and has made a mature approach until now. In three matches, the left-handed batter has scored 98 runs at an average of 32.66 and a strike rate of 130.66. If he gets going at the top, the Tallawahs could find themselves in a lot of trouble.
Probable best bowler of the match
Migael Pretorius — Jamaica Tallawahs
Migael Pretorius has been excellent for the Tallawahs in the ongoing edition of the CPL. The South Africa fast bowler has picked up nine wickets and is the joint-highest wicket-taker of the tournament along with TKR’s Ravi Rampaul. However, he needs to work on his economy rate, which is currently at 9.66. Pretorius will again be looking to fire on all cylinders.
