The biggest party in sport starts tomorrow, September 1st, If there is colour , razzmatazz cricket and partying in an all-in-one combination, then The Caribbean Premier League fits the bill. The 2022 edition of the CPL will kick off between St Kitts and Nevis Patriots.
The guys from St Kitts will open their title defense against the Jamaica Tallawahs. They will cross paths against each other at Warner Park on September 1st. The match will be shown at 4: 30 am IST.
St Kitts and Nevis
They are coming in red hot form having clinched the 6ixty title a few days back. They have got a wonderful side with the cream of West Indies players in it and also they have got some great overseas stars which will serve as a terrific squad for them.
Dwayne Bravo will be leading the side again and he will want his side to have a successful title defense in this edition. The batting looks strong with the likes of Evin Lewis and Sherfane Rutherford and also Andre Fletcher. Overseas talent such as Dewald Brevis will also make his presence felt. The bowling is very strong as well. It has got the likes of Dwaine Pretorious and Dominic Drakes.
They got their strategy a little wrong and they look like a side that is more bowling potent and bowling dependent. Their batting will be heavily dependent on the skipper Rovman Powell and also the likes of Kennar Lewis, Imad Wasim, and Fabian Allen.
The bowling will be their strongest suit. They have got great overseas options in the form of Sandeep Lamichane and Mohammad Amir and also Chris Green and Migel Pretorious. If they have to go deep into the tournament, then the bowling has to do well in all the games.
