Saint Lucia Kings and St Kitts & Nevis Patriots will lock horns in Match 6 of the Caribbean Premier League 2023 on Sunday, August 20 (Monday, August 21 in India). The Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet, St Lucia will play host to this match.
The Kings, led by Faf du Plessis, are placed on top of the table with three points and a net run rate of +1.080 thanks to one win in three matches. They did not have the best of starts in the tournament after losing to Jamaica Tallawahs by 11 runs.
However, they made amends by beating the Barbados Royals by 54 runs. Matthew Forde earned the Player of the Match award for picking up three crucial wickets. The Kings’ recent match against Guyana Amazon Warriors did not produce a result due to rain.
The Patriots, led by Evin Lewis, are currently placed fifth in the table. Their previous match against Kieron Pollard’s Trinbago Knight Riders saw only three over played and was eventually washed out due to rain.
Sheldon Cottrell was impressive as he finished with figures of 2-0-10-1. The left-arm fast bowler got the all-important wicket of opening batter Martin Guptill, who is capable of tearing apart the best bowling lineups. Blessing Muzarabani bowled a solitary over.
