The St Kitts and Nevis Patriots will go up against the St Lucia Kings in match number 15 of the ongoing CPL 2022 season. The contest is the second of a double-header scheduled at Gros Islet on September 11 and marks the sixth fixture for both sides this tournament.

The Patriots have secured just a solitary win out of their five games this year, with two of them ending in a no-result. They also suffered two heavy defeats in the middle of their campaign, first to the Royals by seven wickets and then to the Knight Riders by 47 runs.

The Kings, on the other hand, will be looking to improve upon their disastrous beginnings with a string of wins going ahead. For starters, they lost their first two matches of the season to Knight Riders and Royals respectively. The Faf du Plessis-led side then secured some much-needed two points of their next fixture, defeating the Tallawahs with a ball in hand.

Key Players

  • Andre Fletcher scored 153 runs in his first four CPL 2022 innings for the Patriots. Leading his side’s run-scoring charts, he is only trailing behind Kyle Mayers in terms of overall batters this season.
  • Alzarri Joseph is the leading wicket-taker of the year, having collected 10 of them in just his first four games for the Kings.
  • Scott Kuggeleijn is currently fourth on the CPL 2022 wicket-taking list with six scalps.
