CPL 2021: SKN vs TKR Preview

St Kitts & Nevis Patriots (SKN) will meet Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) in match 30 and the final league stage fixture of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021. The Dwayne Bravo-led franchise became the first team to seal a place in the semi-final after a crushing win over the defending champions in match 27. Evin Lewis struck his maiden hundred in the CPL, and Jon-Russ Jaggesar and Dominic Drakes grabbed six wickets between them.

An eight-wicket defeat at the hands of St Kitts & Nevis Patriots saw Trinbago Knight Riders’ three-match winning streak coming to an end. However, a victory over the league leaders will guarantee Kieron Pollard and co a place in the semi-final. They could also seal a berth in the last four if Jamaica Tallawahs fail to pick up maximum points against Guyana Amazon Warriors.
