The game begins at 19:00 local time.
So far in this tournament, the Saint Lucia Kings have struggled to get their players to perform together. This is a winnable game for them, but they have struggled with consistency with both bat and ball.
After a four-wicket win on Thursday, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots will look to make it two wins in a row. After last year’s victory and the successful 6ixty campaign last month, we all know they have the talent on their side.

Saint Lucia Kings Team News & Playing 11
SLK Team News
Before the loss to the Warriors, the Saint Lucia Kings made three bowling changes, with Jeavor Royal, Kesrick Williams, and Matthew Forde replacing Ackeem Auguste, Roshon Primus, and Scott Kuggeleijn. All three replacements performed admirably, and we anticipate that David Wiese will be rested for this game.
SLK Key Players
- Johnson Charles- usually a keeper-batter, he has been relieved of the gloves in this tournament and is producing more runs with the bat. In his last three innings, he has two half-centuries.
- In Match 13, Faf du Plessis, the former South African captain, opened the batting and contributed 31 runs in a first-wicket partnership of 93 runs from 8.1 overs with Johnson Charles.
- Alzarri Joseph- despite going wicketless and conceding 36 runs against the Warriors, the right-arm quick bowler has been in excellent form and we expect him to bounce back in this match.
SLK Team Form
The Kings have managed to win one game this season, a 2-wicket win against Jamaica Tallawahs, but have ended up losing their four other games.
