St Lucia Kings will be up against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the high-voltage final of Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021. The encounter takes place at the Warner Park in Basseterre, St Kitts on Wednesday (September 15). Both teams have had a similar campaign so far and it would be interesting to see who emerges victoriously in this game.
Notably, the Kings defeated defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders by 21 runs in the semi-finals to qualify for the ultimate clash. On the other hand, the Patriots thrashed Guyana Amazon Warriors by seven wickets to make a place in the finals. It has to be noted these two sides locked horns twice in the league stage and the Kings emerged victoriously both times
