BASSETERRE:St Kitts and Nevis have received a thumbs up from team officials as matches for the Limacol Caribbean Premier League (CPL) T20 enter a critical stage of the competition.

Three of the top four teams vying for an automatic spot in the finals take the field at the Warner Park Cricket Stadium today with a double-header featuring the Guyana Amazon Warriors versus the Antigua Hawksbills and the Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel against the Barbados Tridents.

"The players are excited about being in St Kitts and being part of not only the two remaining matches (on their schedule) and are looking forward to the playoffs. Everyone is enthusiastic and rearing to go," said Roger Harper of the Guyana team.

Head coach of the Antigua squad, Tim Nielsen, agreed.

He said: "St. Kitts is a great way to finish off the tournament."

Red Steel's coach Simon Helmot spoke about the conditions faced at tournament venues across the region and said matches at Warner Park will be interesting.
