Patriots face must-win game
BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC):
Leg spinner Samuel Badree says St Kitts and Nevis Patriots intend to adopt a positive mind set when they face former champions Barbados Tridents in their next match of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) here today.
The Patriots need to win their remaining matches if they are to advance, having won just once from their five encounters to date.
Patriots, fifth in the standings, meet fourth-place Tridents at Kensington Oval.
"There's been a high-scoring encounter most times we've played in Barbados. We've had some good games against them in the past, and I think we need a victory now to really kick-start our campaign," said Badree who produced a fine spell of two wickets for 17 runs against Guyana Amazon Warriors.
"Obviously, we're towards the bottom of the table, so we're looking with a positive mindset going into that game against the Tridents and hopefully we can come up with a win there".
Patriots have suffered losses to Tridents, Jamaica Tallawahs, and two defeats at the hands of Amazon Warriors but secured victory over St Lucia Zouks.
While conceding that the Patriots are in a must-win situation, the Trinidad and Tobago spinner believes the squad has the experience and talent to return to winning ways.
Warriors are leading the points table with eight points from five matches with Tallawahs in second position with five points from four games, while Trinbago Knight Riders are in third place on four points from five encounters.
