Time: September 22, 7.30 PM IST
Probable XI for Trinbago: Leonardo Julien, Nicholas Pooran, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert (wk), Andre Russell, Kieron Pollard (c), Sunil Narine, Akeal Hosein, Khary Pierre, Ravi Rampaul, Daryn Dupavillon
Probable XI for St Kitts and Nevis: Andre Fletcher (wk), Evin Lewis, Dewald Brevis, Darren Bravo, Sherfane Rutherford, Keacy Carty, Dwayne Bravo (c), Rashid Khan, Duan Jansen, Akila Dananjaya, Sheldon Cottrell
Sheldon Cottrell has not found much success with the ball in this edition. He has gone wicketless on three out of four occasions.
For six consecutive innings, Sherfane Rutherford has failed to get past the single-digit score.
In 7 attempts, Kieron Pollard has managed only 88 runs at 13. The wickets column has been dry too.
Andre Russell hasn’t quite set the stage on fire: 78 runs and 5 wickets. However, given his match-winning reputation, it is only a matter of time before he makes headlines again.
Likewise, Evin Lewis has not been able to cut loose. That said, his team is almost out of the semi-final race and that might unleash the beast in him.
Akeal Hosein has picked up 8 wickets in 4 games. Additionally, he has generated 6 bonus points for bagging a three- and four-wicket haul.
Rashid Khan might have gone wicketless in the previous game, but one needs to take into account that Trinbago have several left-handed batters who can fall prey to the spin wizard.
Andre Fletcher’s poor strike rate (111.34) has been a concern. That said, being cautious has helped him provide 10 bonus points for registering one half-century to go with a couple of forties and a thirty.
Since the beginning of the Men’s 100 league, Dwayne Bravo has picked a wicket in every game, including 8 in the ongoing Caribbean T20 League. He has also provided 16 points for pouching 4 catches.
Suni Narine has not made much impact with the willow (92 runs in 7 innings) but continues to help fantasy players through his wicket-taking abilities. He has 9, including the best figures of 2 for 9.
Fantasy Tip of The Day
Both teams have had plenty of problems with their batting, especially the top order. Meanwhile, they boast of crafty spinners, who are likely to keep you in good stead.
