After the exciting 2022 edition, the 2023 season of the Caribbean Premier League will start on August 16. The first game will see the winner of 2022, the Jamaica Tallawahs, take on the St. Lucia Kings at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium. A total of six CPL franchises will compete in the upcoming tournament, which will have a total of 34 matches.
The St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots won the 2021 edition, beating the St. Lucia Kings in the final of the tournament. Though that is the only championship that they have won, they will be looking to win their second title in 2023. They made their CPL debut in 2015. Mahesh Ramani is the owner of the team, and their home ground is Warner Park, Basseterre.
St Kitts & Nevis Patriots 2023 Squad
The franchise has yet to reveal the captain of the team. They released their former captain, Dwayne Bravo, who led the team in 2022. So it will be interesting to see who will be the next captain. Though there are some veteran names on the team that have been playing for a long time. This team has the likes of Evin Lewis and Andre Flectcher, who have been part of the West Indies for a long time.
These two will be the key to top-order batting and are aggressive players by nature. They have also added young South African uncapped star Dewald Brevis along with George Linde, who is a spin all-rounder. Sherfane Rutherford is another capped West Indian who has played all over the world in different T20 leagues.
The West Indian fast-bowling duo of Oshane Thomas and Sheldon Cottrell will also make their pace attack heavy. Former Australian coach Simon Helmot will be the head coach of the team. This team has a mix of youth and experienced players. They will look to come together and perform well this season.
