The 10th edition of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) is all set to get underway on Thursday, September 1 with St Kitts & Nevis Patriots taking on Jamaica Tallawahs in the season opener.  

St Kitts & Nevis Patriots kick-start the 2022 season of the T20 extravaganza as defending champions. They outfoxed Saint Lucia Kings by three wickets in the final of the 2021 edition of the Caribbean Premier League to lift the title. 

The team has shown faith in their old horse Dwayne Bravo as he will continue leading the side this season as well. The Patriots, however, will miss the services of their star spinner Wanindu Hasaranga in the first few matches as he is currently with the Sri Lanka team playing in the Asia Cup 2022.

Speaking of the two-time champions Jamaica Tallawahs, the team will be led by Rovman Powell. The likes of Fabian Allen, Brandon King, Kennar Lewis, and Shamarh Brooks will hold the impetus on the batting front. In bowling terms, Mohammad Amir will lead the pace attack for Tallawahs.  

Key Players 

  • Evin Lewis: He is one of the renowned pace hitters and is often known for providing a flying start to the team. He has scored over 5000 runs in T20 while averaging around 31 and striking at 145.10.
  • Bradon King: The right-handed top-order batter has accumulated 1767 runs from 83 T20 matches at an average of 25.98 and a strike rate of 129.07. He slices up quick runs and will be one of the players to have an eye on for Jamaica. 
  • Dwyane Bravo: The right-arm medium fast is known for nailing his death overs. He is currently the highest wicket-taker in the history of T20 with 604 wickets from 548 matches. He is pretty handy with the bat as well, scoring over 6500 runs in the shortest format.

Pitch Report  

The track at Warner Park in Basseterre, St Kitts is a sporting one with equal assistance for both departments. The pacers will get some movement with the new ball and as the same progresses, spinners will come into the game. Whoever claims the coin during the toss will probably look to chase.
