St Kitts & Nevis Patriots v St Lucia Kings pitch report

The Tarouba pitch has not been a road and has offered a fair battle between bat and ball. Six of the last 15 first-innings unaffected by rain have produced scores of 160 or more. However, we are conscious in this tournament how historical pitch data has not been that reliable. In short, they've all been excellent for batters. We have to wait and have a look before taking on the par line.

St Kitts & Nevis Patriots v St Lucia Kings match odds

Patriots are 2.3211/8 with Kings 1.654/6. We're a bit surprised Kings are not shorter and it certainly gives us the chance to bet in-play if they were to be upped to more than 1.804/5.

In an ideal world it's another belting batting wicket and we can get on kings to chase something big. patriots have significant bowling issues.

St Kitts & Nevis Patriots v St Lucia Kings player bets

Raza batted at No 6 last time out but it's possible he could bat as high as No 4. On that occasion others were promoted as free hitters. It's worth adding Raza to your bets slip at a generous 10/111.00. For Patriots, Corbin Bosch has batted up the order and could be a decent price at 17/29.50 with Sportsbook.

Back Sikandar Raza top Kings at @ 10/111.00
