Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Trinbago Knight Riders and St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots are currently placed at the top extreme sides of the table. Trinbago Knight Riders have won all the matches so far and are looking in good form and momentum. Patriots on the other hand are going through a tough phase with just one win in 7 matches and will need to win this match to stay in contention. We expect Trinbago Knight Riders to win this contest

Score Prediction: The pitch seems to be a little double paced and the moisture is expected to help the slower bowlers’ considerably. We expect scores in the range of 160-170 runs in this match. 

Toss Prediction: Chasing is the safe option as no target is safe in T20s nowadays. The early moisture available in the pitch will be big factor in this match.
