As we enter the business end of the season, things will start heating up as the race for a place in the playoffs starts intensifying. Both these sides remain strongly in contention and a lot rides on this contest. This is the last fixture for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and a win for them will confirm their spot in the knock-out stages but a loss will mean their fate in the competition will lie in the hands of their competitors. For Barbados Tridents, this will be the first of their last three games and a victory in this match will take them into the third position on the standings.

Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados
Clear conditions are predicted with few chances of rain and temperature ranging around 28 degree Celsius expected during the game.
The surface should be slow and sluggish which will bring the spinners into play and a score around 160-165 could prove to be a par score on this pitch.
No notable injury concerns reported.
Probable Playing XI:
Shakib Al Hasan has joined the squad and his extra bit of quality is exactly what is needed as games begin to get tighter with tiny details proving to be the difference-maker. The team has a strong nucleus of talented all-rounders, which provides great balance to the side. Jason Holder has picked up ten scalps from seven games and will be key in the bowling department.
Johnson Charles (wk), Jonathan Carter, JP Duminy, Alex Hales, Shakib Al Hasan, Ashley Nurse, Jason Holder (C), Raymon Reifer, Roshon Primus, Hayden Walsh, Harry Gurney
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots:
Evin Lewis will be banked upon to provide a quick-fire start at the top while Fabian Allen and Carlos Braithwaite offer firepower lower down the order. On a track that should suit spinners, Mohammed Hafeez could play a vital role with the bowl in hand and will assist Alazarri Joseph, who will spearhead the pace attack.
Devon Thomas (wk), Evin Lewis, Laurie Evans, Mohammad Hafeez, Fabian Allen, Carlos Brathwaite (C), Shamarh Brooks, Keron Cottoy, Rayad Emrit, Sheldon Cottrell, Alzarri Joseph
After plundering the quickest half-century in CPL history, JP Duminy is a Dream11 favorite and walks into any team without a shadow of a doubt. Fabian Allen should also be a guaranteed pick considering his explosive batting style whilst Laurie Evans and Mohammad Hafeez too can add great value to your fantasy side.
