Tonight at the Queens Park Oval, the TKR is hoping to secure a victory over the Patriots in the first match of the season. Keiron Pollard will replace Bravo as skipper as the team hopes to secure a hat-trick title (they won the title in 2017 and 2018) and make history at the Caribbean Premier League.
