St Lucia Kings

The Kings posted a huge total of 205/4 after Mark Deyal’s 78 off 44 and bowled out Knight Riders at 184 runs on the back of David Wiese’s 5-39.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, on the other hand, registered a convincing 7 wickets win over Guyana Amazon Warriors after chasing down 179 runs target in just 17.5 overs. Opting to field, the Patriots displayed a clinical bowling performance that saw Guyana Amazon Warriors slip down from 88 for 2 to 131 for 8 and eventually posted 178/9 on the board. Coming to chase, Chris Gayle (42 off 27) and Evin Lewis (77* off 39) laid the foundation of an easy win as both openers posted 68 runs in the powerplay. Skipper Dwayne Bravo (34 off 31) also made a vital contribution.
The pitch is one where batsmen will have to work hard to score runs. The ball will grip on this surface. However, once batsmen are set, they will find the going a lot easier.
