Cricket Free Tips | CPL 2021, Match 17: St Kitts & Nevis Patriots vs St Lucia Kings

St Kitts & Nevis Patriots and the St Lucia Kings will play for the second game in two days. On Saturday, the Kings came out on top, winning by 100 runs and ruining the Patriots’ perfect record in the 2021 CPL.

When a winning streak comes to an end, it isn’t easy to discover the winning combination again so quickly. Captain Dwayne Bravo, who suffered a groin strain in the rematch, will be a significant loss.

After defeating the previously unbeaten Patriots, the St Lucia Kings are now full of confidence. They’ll be in good shape if either Faf du Plessis or Devon Chase can deliver a considerable blow.

 

Weather
The forecast calls for partly overcast skies with a chance of a small shower in between. The temperature will range between 28~32°C.

 

Pitch
Both of the matches thus far have shown that the new wicket is ideal for batting. The batters can easily score runs if they get themselves in. Spinners will play an important role. On this wicket, fast bowlers will have difficulty. Another high-scoring match is expected.
