The 29th and the penultimate match of the ongoing CPL will see the unbeaten Trinbago Knight Riders locking horns against the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots on Sunday. The TKR side will be chasing history as they will aim to win their 10th match on the trot and stay unbeaten throughout the league stage. The Patriots, on the other hand, have been poor as they have only won one matches out of nine and lost seven and they will be keen on bowing out on a high.
The spinners will have fun bowling on this wicket. So many matches have been played at the venue and it has crumbled at times too leading to low-scoring matches. Expect the team winning the toss to bat first.

Darren Bravo has been in good nick in the tournament. He has scored 239 runs in eight outings at a strike-rate of 113. He will be looking to continue in the same vein ahead of the knockous.
Evin Lewis has been the lone and best batter for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The southpaw has scored 223 runs in nine matches at an SR of 130.
Kieron Pollard has found form at the right time for his team. He has mustered 207 runs in seven innings at a strike-rate of 205. He also picked three wickets in the last game which keeps him in good stead ahead of the semi-finals.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have been extremely poor this season. Though they will be looking to win and end the season on a high, it is tough to go past the TKR side this season it seems. Each player of their team has stood up so far and they are expected to win their 10th match on the trot.
