Cricket Free Tips | CPL 2021, Match 27: Trinbago Knight Riders vs St Kitts & Nevis Patriots

Match 27 of the CPL 2021 will be held at the Warner Park in St Kitts, played between Trinbago Knight Riders and St Kitts & Nevis Patriots. The match will be kicked off on 12th September (Sunday) at 05:00 (GMT+6).    

Both team will be vying for first place in the points table. The defending champions got off to a poor start in the competition, but they’ve since built up a lot of momentum with three straight victories. While the batting has yet to come clicked as expected, the bowlers’ performance have been outstanding. In the last two games, they have restricted their rivals to 92 and 93 respectively. Almost every batsman has scored runs, from Pollard to Seifert, Simmons to Munro, but they haven’t done so as a team. Knight Riders will be difficult to beat if they can all chip in with contributions.

When it comes to the Patriots, their campaign has taken a turn for the worse. They lost three games in a row after winning five back-to-back matches. The batting, which had been performing so brilliantly at the start, has suddenly become sluggish. One thing is certain: if the Patriots are to beat the Knight Riders, they will have to bat significantly better than they have in the previous 3 matches. They have the players to complete this task.

Weather
There will be no disruptions due to the weather because there is no chance of rainfall.

Pitch
The surface is becoming slower, and scoring runs is becoming more difficult. A score of approximately 160 will be difficult to achieve.
