Trinbago Knight Riders have maintained a clean sheet so far, as they won all four matches they played this season. The Knight Riders carry the psychological advantage as they had defeated St Kitts and Nevis Patriots earlier in this tournament, played at Port of Spain. Apart from the loss against TKR, the Patriots faced defeats from Guyana Amazon Warriors in both the games and they lost a match to Barbados Tridents. However, they stunned everyone with the record-breaking run-chase against Jamaica Tallawahs to earn their first win of the series. Their win against St Lucia Zouks at the home-ground brought them back on the track, as the points table shows them at the third position now.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots lost their first two games of the tournament against Trinbago Knight Riders and Guyana Amazon Warriors. While playing at home, the Patriots tasted their first success of the series against Jamaica Tallawahs. In that spectacular game, STKNP chased down 241 runs before the end of the 19th over, which was second-highest run-chase ever in T20 games and the highest chase in the Caribbean Premier League’s history. The openers Devon Thomas (40 balls 71) and Evin Lewis (53 runs in just 18 balls) added 85 runs in first 33 balls of the innings. Laurie Evan (20 balls 41) and Fabian Allen (37 off 15 balls) too played magnificently in the chase.
Their second home-game against Barbados Tridents was not fruitful as they fell short of 18 runs while chasing Tridents' 186 runs. Except for Evans (41 balls 64), none of the batsmen fired in the game. They lost another home-game to Guyana Amazon Warriors, in which their batsmen collapsed mainly against the spin-attack of the Warriors. With just 121 runs to defend, the bowlers couldn't do much, as the Warriors won the game by 7 wickets.
They entered the match against Zouks with four replacements, which paid them well. Akeem Jordan made an impactful entry as he removed Zouks top-order early on. He was awarded the player of the match for his 4 for 33. Lewis (30 balls 65 runs) led the run-chase of 139, which they successfully achieved under 15 overs. They now seem to be getting the needed support from the bowling unit which is a positive sign.

Sunil Narine’s all-round performance helped the team to achieve their second victory against Jamaica (46 runs in 22 balls and 2 wickets for 23).

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are a good side, they ended CPL 2018 at 3rd place, and the win against St Lucia Zouks has put the team at the third place in CPL 2019 points table. However, there is a huge difference between teams St Lucia Zouks and Trinbago Knight Riders - who are the defending champions, and the Patriots already lost the away-game against TKR. While the Patriots have lost multiple games in this series, Trinbago Knight Riders have not lost a single game so far in CPL 2019. At home conditions, the Patriots are expected to put up a good fight, but head-to-head numbers are in favor of the Knight Riders. Hence, we predict that Trinbago Knight Riders will defeat St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in this match and continue their winning streak.
