1. Team News - Guyana Warriors
The Warriors were defeated by four wickets by Trinbago Knight Riders in their opening encounter. But they will take some positives from that match. Despite an immense effort from Sunil Narine, they were in the match till 16.4 overs in a 17-over-a-side affair. They have a brilliant fifty by Shimron Hetmyer to show along with a twinkling 33 by Ross Taylor. Naveen-ul-Haq was on the money as a bowler taking two wickets and veteran Imran Tahir, though went for a few runs, was able to pick up two wickets. They need to build on those little nuggets and get over line against Patriots.
2. Team News - St Kitts & Nevis Patriots
Like Warriors, Patriots too suffered a defeat in their opening match to defending champions Barbados Tridents, but not before stretching their opponents. The boldest silverline in their performance is how their bowlers limited a potent Tridents line-up to 153 for 9 in 20 overs. Veteran pacers Sohail Tanvir and Rayad Emrit and Sheldon Cottrell picked up two wickets apiece and among them Emrit and Cottrell conceded only 16 runs in their full quota of four overs. They would hope that spinner Ish Sodhi and pacer Alzarri Joseph would lift their performance after conceding more than 10 runs per over against Tridents.
