There is a 33 per cent chance of rain on the match day and the temperature will range between 33 to 25 degrees. There are no chances of precipitation during the game.
The surface has lost its pace and the batters are struggling against the spinners which is why we have seen teams struggling to post big runs. However, once a batter gets used to the pace, it’s easier to bat.

Darren Bravo scored 39 off 21 balls when Patriots faced Jamaica in the last game. Bravo was once rated very highly in the West Indies team but lack of consistent performances saw him lose his place. But he still has all the skills to succeed and the knock in the previous game will give him a lot of confidence.
Faf du Plessis has picked up some form in recent games and he is getting better with every passing match. We feel that he is about to reach his peak. He scored a magnificent 60 in the last game against the same team.
The St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots overcame their unexpected loss by thrashing the Jamaica Tallawahs by eight wickets in their previous match. On the other hand, in the rematch, Faf du Plessis’ St. Lucia Kings trounced their opponents by 61 runs. With a victory over St. Lucia Kings, Dwayne Bravo’s team, who are now third in the points table, will look to move up the table. They defeated Jamaica Tallawahs by huge margin of 8 wickets and this win will surely gonna boost up the players confidence and morale.
Match Prediction: St Kitts and Nevis Patriots Will Win the Match
