NOTE: We might not always be able to tip you off about late injury (or other relevant) updates, so do keep an eye out for the toss before making your final picks.
Captain: Mujeeb Ur Rahman
Mujeeb has been outstanding this tournament. He has taken 13 wickets at an average of 9.15 and an economy rate of 4.25. No one is able to pick him or score against him. The Patriots are finding it tough to score against most teams and Mujeeb is not making it any easy.
Vice-captain: Andre Russell
Russell is not anywhere close to his peak but he showed again what he is capable of, scoring an unbeaten 50 off 23 balls against the Trinbago Knight Riders. He has not been bowling much but against a weak opposition in the Patriots, chances are that Russell could make it count.
Glenn Phillips: Phillips has been the most reliable batsmen for the Tallawahs. He has 248 runs at an average of 41.33 and a Strike Rate of 128.49. He scored 79* the last time these two teams met. Bank on the man in form.
Evin Lewis: Lewis has 202 runs from eight matches and like in most matches that involve the Patriots, Lewis is the safest pick. He has been scoring consistently and looks reliable.
Sandeep Lamichhane: If Mujeeb does not get you, Lamichhane will. He has also been in good form with 10 wickets at 4.85 runs per over. Both spinners have been key in controlling the flow of runs. Lamichhane took 2 for 27 the last time these two teams met.
Rayad Emrit: Emrit has been the most successful bowler for the Patriots. He has 10 wickets at an economy rate of 6.10 and takes a wicket once every three overs. He bowls in the death and has many variations to succeed. Among the pacers, Emrit is the safest pick.
