BAR vs SKN CPL 2018: FPJ’s dream XI prediction for Barbados Tridents and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots


After a massive seven-wicket win in their previous game, St Kittis and Nevis Patriots will take on Barbados Tridents aiming to continue the momentum. This will be crucial game for both the team as they will look to get some points to move up the leader-board. Patriots have won two and lost as many matches out of the four so far and are currently placed on fourth spot. Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis are doing good for the team and are always a big threat to the oppositions. Despite having some big names in their ranks, their batting is mostly dependent on Gayle which is a cause of problem for the side. Here are the probable dream XI for the Patriots:

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots: Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Devon Thomas, Brandon King, Tom Cooper, Anton Devcich, Sandeep Lamichhane, Mahmudullah, Ben Cutting, Sheldon Cottrell and Carlos Brathwaite.

Tridents are currently placed fifth. The Tridents will surely give a tough fight to Patriots. Tridents found an unlikely hero with the ball in Steve Smith who took 2/19 to bring them back in the last game. Smith also smashed his maiden fifty helping team to put-up a fighting total. Here we see the probable dream XI for Tridents:

Barbados Tridents: Jason Holder, Raymon Reifer, Wahab Riaz, Ashley Nurse, Mohammad Irfan, Dwayne Smith, Martin Guptill, Hashim Amla, Steven Smith, Shai Hope and Nicholas Pooran.
