Who will win TKR vs SKN | CPL 2018, 5th match Preview

This is going to be the first doubleheader of this year’s CPL and in the second game of the day the Trinbago Knight Riders will take on St Kitts and Nevis Patriots who are coming after a loss in their opening game against Guyana Amazon Warriors.
Trinbago Knight Riders having won their first game in an emphatic manner by 100 runs will be out in their home ground for the third time this year. St Kitts though had a miserable start to their campaign as they lost to Guyana Amazon Warriors thanks to some batting heroics from Shimron Hetmyer who’s impeccable 79 from 45 deliveries proved enough to clinch a victory by 6 wickets and 21 balls to spare.
Trinbago Knight Riders are due to face off the Jamaica Tallawahs in their second game on Friday night at Trinidad which means this match against St Kitts will be their third game of the season.
Talking about the surface of Trinidad, the opening game saw a bulk of runs scored in the first innings as the home side notched up a massive score of 195 which meant that the bowlers were thrashed throughout the innings. But the second innings witnessed a completely different scenario as the visitors St Lucia Stars were dismissed for a mere 95 with Trinbago’s Dwayne Bravo and Fawad Ahmed picking up 3 wickets each. Therefore, the surface is going to aid both batsmen and bowlers which means the battle between the bat and ball will be an exciting one.
