No interruption has been seen over the three matches hosted by the Warner Park in this season. However, there are good chances of rain in the latter half of the day. But the 6 PM local time start could witness at least 30 overs of play before the showers come down.
After a couple of high-scoring matches, the Warner Park witnessed a low-scoring match. It could be due to usage of same track for the 3rd game in a row. Also, this match began two hours late that previous two which makes a difference through the dew. The short boundaries do help while chasing big totals.
Average first innings score: 184 (CPL matches since 2018)
Record of chasing teams:Won – 5, Lost – 2

Probable Playing XIs:
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots:
Evin Lewis, Laurie Evans, Devon Thomas (WK), Jason Mohammed, Sharmarh Brooks, Fabian Allen, Carlos Brathwaite (C) , Alzarri Joseph, Usama Mir/Dominic Drakes, Rayad Emrit, Sheldon Cottrell.
Even during a failure, Laurie Evans scored 26 runs which show his consistency and class. Colin de Grandhomme made a good start of his CPL stint with a couple of catches and few quick runs with the bat. He could come handy with the ball at the Warner Park if the track grips for the slow blowers. Fawad Ahmed has seen great success with the ball in all T20 leagues in the last 2-3 years.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Captain – Rahkeem Cornwall, Evin Lewis, Laurie Evans, Andre Fletcher
Vice-Captain – Colin de Grandhomme, Devon Thomas, Fabian Allen, Carlos Brathwaite
Rahkeem Cornwall could enjoy smashing the pacers in the SKN Patriots line-up like the way Brandon King did on Saturday.
