Saint lucia jocks
St. Lucia Jocks has won all their matches on the basis of their good bowling. New Zealand all-rounder Scott Cugline has taken 10 wickets in the tournament so far and has taken wickets at regular times for the team. All-rounders Mohammad Nabi and Roston Chase have done wonders for the team both in batting and bowling.
Talking about batting, Andre Fletcher has given the team a good start in some matches. In the last match, Rahkim Cornwall was rested, so today it will be interesting to see who the team includes in the playing eleven. Najibullah Jadran and Mohammad Nabi will also have the responsibility of scoring fast runs in the last over.
Expected Playing XI
Andre Fletcher (wicketkeeper), Kimani Melius / Rahkim Cornwall, Mark Diel, Roston Chase, Najibullah Jadaran, Mohammad Nabi, Jewell Glenn, Daren Sammy (captain), Scott Kugeline, Kesrick Williams, Kemar Holder
Trinbago Knight Riders
All-rounder Sunil Narine did not do anything special at bat in the last match against Barbados and returned to the pavilion after scoring just 8 runs but in this match he will be expecting an explosive start. Apart from Narayan, New Zealand left-handed batsmen Colin Munro and Darren Bravo have batted well in the tournament so far. While Monroe has scored 116 so far, Darren Bravo has scored 98 runs so far.
Against Barbados, team captain Pollard also scored 41 runs in 17 balls. Although his bowling seems to have faded somewhere. Leg spinners Fawad Alam and Sunil Narayan will have to look amazing in spin. All-rounder Dwayne Bravo will also have to bowl well in the last over.
Expected Playing XI
Lendl Simmons, Sunil Narine, Colin Munro, Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard (captain), Tim Seifert (wicketkeeper), Dwayne Bravo, Khairi Pierre, Jayden Sills, Ali Khan, Fawad Ahmed
