Three changes: Cottrell, Drakes, and Lynn in for Patriots. Pollard being rested, says Bravo. Narine rested too. Jangoo playing for the first time in a while. Anderson Phillip in too. Looks like TKR are ticking off their “emerging player” quota, which is a compulsory minimum for each team. Tambe returns too.
Dwayne Bravo is standing in for Kieron Pollard as skipper: “No niggle, just a rest. We’re coming to the business end so it’s making sure all our players are fresh. Narine is also rested. Looking forward to Amir Jangoo getting the first opportunity in three years and Anderson Phillip gets a go. We don’t mind batting first, the toss doesn’t really matter. We batted first yesterday and got 180 so hopefully, we can do the same.”
Rayad Emrit: “We’ll have a bowl first. The pitch looks a lot better than we’ve played on before. I think it’s not going to change much and it seems like the weather is going to be a factor. We just want to finish on a high. If we can get three victories, that will be good for us mentally and the team as a whole. Hopefully, we can get the win today. Three changes: Sohail is out with a broken finger, Cottrell is back in for him. Young Drakesy is in and Lynny is in.”
