St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and St Lucia Kings will square off in the 15th match of the 2022 Caribbean Premier League at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in St. Lucia. The Patriots head into the game after pulling an unlikely victory against Shimron Hetmyer's Guyana in the previous encounter.

St Lucia Kings are meandering at the bottom of the table with just one win in five games so far. The game is a repeat of last year's final, where the Patriots triumphed to clinch the title. St Lucia led by Faf du Plessis have been below par so far in the tournament and will look to change things around quickly to move up the table.

Match Details:

Venue: Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, St Lucia

Date & Time: September 12, 4:30 AM IST

Live Streaming: FanCode

Pitch Report:

The surface of Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium is one of the rare venues which provides a little bit of something for everyone. The pacers get some movement off the pitch, and the spinners also extract decent turn from the surface, which entices batters with its shorter boundaries. The team winning the toss would likely bat first in the contest.

Probable Playing XIs:

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots:

Andre Fletcher (wk), Evin Lewis, Darren Bravo, Dewald Brevis, Sherfane Rutherford, Dwaine Pretorius, Dwayne Bravo (c), Duan Jansen, Sheldon Cottrell, Jon-Russ Jaggesar, Akila Dananjaya

St Lucia Kings:

Johnson Charles, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Faf du Plessis (c), Roston Chase, Mark Deyal, Tim David, David Wiese, Alzarri Joseph, Matthew Forde, Kesrick Williams, Jeavor Royal

Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter of the match:

Johnson Charles:

St Lucia Kings' Johnson Charles is the second leading run getter in this year's tournament and is heading into the contest after a blistering unbeaten knock of 87 runs against the Guyana Amazon Warriors. The powerful opening batter would like to continue his form and topple Kyle Mayers in the run-scoring charts. 

Probable best bowler of the match:

Alzarri Joseph:

The speedster from Antigua is in scintillating form with the ball in hand and is the leading wicket-taker in the tournament so far, with ten scalps to his name in five games. His 4/17 against four-time champions Trinbago Knight Riders in his first game set the tone for his campaign. He has been a handful with his rapid bumpers and lethal yorkers at the fag end of the innings.
