Which team will get their first win tonight?
Both teams started off their campaigns with a loss to the Knight Riders. The Patriots lost their second game as well to the Warriors. Though it is still early days in the tournament, momentum is a huge thing and SKN will be looking to turn things around. JAM had an ordinary first game as Sunil Narine took the game away from them. They had some good individual performances and will look to add on to that. SKN has a strong batting line-up. Their bowling has only let them down in both games. S Cottrell doesn’t get enough support. If he does, SKN can be a lot more dangerous. JAM has a lot of big names at the top and also arguably the best T20 all-rounder in the world. Their bowling also lacks a bit of penetration.
L Evans is set to replace J Mohammed for SKN. JAM should go in with the same squad.
The pitch at has been a batting paradise. The average 1st score last season in 4 games was 185.
The Universe Boss may not have been in the best of forms in Internationals but he showed us a glimpse of what he is still capable of in the last game. He looks like far from finished.
Easily the most destructive all-rounder going around in the world, especially in the format. He has scored more than 5000 runs at a SR of 169 and picked up 271 wickets in T20s. He started off the CPL with a blistering 44.
He has been in good form, scoring runs and picking up wickets for the Windies. In T20s, he strikes at 159 with the bat and has 12 wickets in 16 games at an economy of 7.1, proving he is an asset. He has already got a couple of 30s in as many games in the tournament.
The lone warrior in both the games for SKN. He has continued his good form in the internationals with 4 wickets in 2 games.
After a really successful Vitality Blast, he is set to join the Patriots. He has been in terrfic form, scoring 210 runs in his last 6 innings at an average of 93.33 and SR of 136.36. He could be the X factor in turning things around for his team.
