After a successful introduction to America, the action just keeps coming as Saint Kitts & Nevis Patriots take on Trinbago Knight Riders in game 26 of the Caribbean Premier League 2016.

The opening game at Lauderhill, Florida, saw Guyana Amazon Warriors book their place in the play-offs with a six-wicket win over Barbados Tridents last night.

Openers Dwayne Smith and Nic Maddinson found form with the bat and Guyana's win means they are now four points clear of Trinbago, but it has also given Trinbago a small cushion between them and the Tridents.

However, all Trinbago will be focussing on will be winning this match today and then repeating things two days later when they face the same opponents.

And coach Simon Helmot is already enjoying things in the States.

"This is fantastic. The conditions here are great. We have had a really good training session," he said.

"The wicket looks fantastic so I think it is going to be a fantastic match.

"We have two crucial matches here against the Patriots who haven’t been in the best of form but that is when they can be the most dangerous.

"We played well recently at St Lucia and need to do the same again tomorrow night."

In their last match, they ended St Lucia Zouks' winning run at home to take a three-wicket win.

On that occasion, Umar Akmal was in terrific form with the bat, cracking an unbeaten 73 in 35 deliveries to guide them home with an over to spare.

More runs from him, and more excellent bowling from Dwayne Bravo will be exactly what Trinbago want and it might well be enough to see off the Patriots.

They have had a very disappointing campaign and have mustered just one win and two points, and while Trinbago went to St Lucia and won, they went there and were defeated, so recent form is not with them at all.

Not one of their batsmen has scored 200 runs in the competition thus far and none of their bowlers have taken 10 wickets.
