St Kitts & Nevis Team News & Playing 11
SNP Team News
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots seem to be free from all injury concerns at the moment. They have not made a change to their side since the previous two matches and we expect them to go into this match with an unchanged line-up.
SNP Key Players
Chris Gayle has scored the most runs for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The opener had blitzed 86 runs in the reverse fixture against Guyana Amazon Warriors and a similar performance will be expected from him in this re-match. Brandon King struck a 49-ball 60 in the last game against Barbados Tridents and he along with Evin Lewis are the other key figures in this batting line-up. Sandeep Lamichhane and Sheldon Cottrell have been the best bowlers for the Patriots this season with seven wickets each in five matches. Lamichhane had returned outstanding figures of 4-0-12-2 in the earlier encounter against the Warriors and he could finish with the best figures once again.
SNP Recent Form
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have won three and lost two out of the five matches they have played so far in this year's CPL and are currently placed third on the points table with six points. After going down to Jamaica Tallawahs by 47 runs, the Patriots have done well to bounce back with two consecutive wins against St Lucia Stars and Barbados Tridents respectively.

GWA Team News
Guyana Amazon Warriors will be without their skipper Shoaib Malik for the remainder of the season as he has been called up by his national team to prepare for the forthcoming Asia Cup. No replacement has been announced by the Warriors as of yet.
GWA Key Players
Shimron Hetmyer is currently the leading run-getter for Guyana Amazon Warriors in this year's CPL. He had smashed an unbeaten 45-ball 79 in the reverse encounter against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and he is going to be the key man for his side with the bat. The Warriors, however, will also need strong contributions from their openers Chadwick Walton and Luke Ronchi. When it comes to bowling, the skipper will turn to Imran Tahir to take wickets. The South African leg-spinner has taken the most wickets for his side - seven in five matches. Sohail Tanvir and Rayad Emrit are the other bowlers in this line-up who have the potential to make a significant impact with the ball.
