SKN vs BAR Dream11 Prediction: St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots vs Barbados Tridents – 25 August 2020 (Trinidad)
Barbados Tridents will take on St Kitts & Nevis Patriots in the League Match of CPL 2020 aka Caribbean Premier League which will be played at the Queens Park Oval in Trinidad. The T20 cricket is finally back on the T20 land of the Caribbean after the COVID-19 heartbreak.
The batting of both teams has been absolutely poor in the tournament till now. Patriots have some star batsmen in their ranks but they have not fired yet whereas the Tridents don’t have a good batting attack in their ranks. The bowling department has been the strength of both sides and will be vital in this game too.
Patriots have lost all three of their games and would like to get a win whereas Tridents would also want to return to winning ways from this game.
Pitch Report – The pitch at Queen’s Park Oval is not great for batting as the average 1st innings score here is just 159.

5 Must-Have Players in the Squad
Johnson Charles, Chris Lynn, Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, and Rayad Emrit.
SKN vs BAR Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Johnson Charles (Price 9.5) will be the wicket-keeper of our squad. Charles is a genuine match-winner and will open the innings for his side. He is the best batsman of the Tridents and he scored a half-century in the last game as well. He cannot be dropped from the team.
SKN vs BAR Dream11 Batsmen
Chris Lynn (Price 10.5), Even Lewis (Price 9.5), and Ben Dunk (Price 8.5) will be our batsmen from the Patriots. All three of them are star players but have not performed well till now in the tournament. Lynn looked in great touch in the last game and he will be backed to score a brilliant inning in this game. Lewis is also a genuine T20 match-winner whereas Dunk has played a couple of good knocks in the tournament. The batting category is weak in this game and this trio will be very vital for the team.
Corey Anderson (Price 9) will be our batsman from the Tridents. Anderson has been really unlucky so far in the tournament and got run-out in the last game. He will bat at the number 3 slot and can be a good option to take in the weak batting order of the Tridents.
SKN vs BAR Dream11 All-Rounders
Sohail Tanvir (Price 9) will be our all-rounder from the Patriots. Tanvir has picked four wickets in just a couple of games and his slower balls are difficult for any batsman to pick. He can be good with the bat as well and will be in our team.
Jason Holder (Price 9.5) will be our all-rounder from the Patriots. Holder has played well in the tournament so far and has scored 99 runs in just three innings in the tournament so far. He has picked a wicket too in the last game and will continue to bowl in the powerplay overs. He will definitely be in our team.
SKN vs BAR Dream11 Bowlers
Rayad Emrit (Price 8.5) and Jon-Russ Jaggesar (Price 8) will be our bowlers from the Patriots side. Emrit has been bowling really well and has picked six wickets in three games so far whereas Russ is an experienced off-break bowler and proved his class in the last game by picking a couple of wickets. Both of them will be picked.
Rashid Khan (Price 9.5) and Ashley Nurse (Price 8.5) will be our bowlers from Tridents. Rashid is the best T20 bowler of the World and has picked four wickets till now in the tournament. He failed in the last game but is expected to make a comeback whereas Nurse is an experienced player and has been bowling with a very good economy. He can be a good asset in his batting as well.
Match Prediction: St Kitts & Nevis Patriots will be the favourites to win this game.
