TKR vs SKN Dream11 Prediction: Trinbago Knight Riders vs St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots – 2 September 2020 (Trinidad)
St Kitts & Nevis Patriots will take on Trinbago Knight Riders in the League Match of CPL 2020 aka Caribbean Premier League which will be played at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Trinidad. The T20 cricket is finally back on the T20 land of the Caribbean after the COVID-19 heartbreak.
Two teams that are at the very different end of the league table are up against each other. Knights have all seven of their games and looking almost unbeatable in the tournament whereas St Kitts have won just one of their seven games so far.
This can be yet another one-sided contest with Knights likely to maintain their record whereas Kitts would like to show a fighting spirit in this game.
