Venue: Warner park, Basseterre, St.Kitts

The pitch at Warner Park historically has been good for batting. But it has been on the slower side during the day games in this CPL. This will be a day game so expect the wicket to be a bit on the slower side with spinners and slow bowlers getting assistance from it. Teams will look to bat first on this wicket.
No injury updates from either of the two sides.
