Pitch and Conditions

The 9th match of the Caribbean T20 League 2023 is scheduled at Warner Park in Basseterre, St Kitts. As we have seen in the previous games played here, the venue is suitable for the batting department. The pitch is also slow and assists the spinners with a decent spin. A score of 180 is tough to chase on this pitch as the ground tends to become slower in the second half of the game.

Match Prediction

TKR hasn’t played a single full match till now in this Caribbean T20 League 2023 due to the constant interference of rain. Also, there has been a gap of 1 week since they have played a match. SLK on the other side, have bounced back and recovered from their loss. They have also been effective in every department which makes them the favourites to win this match.
