    Carlos Brathwaite will captain St Kitts and Nevis Patriots at this year’s Caribbean Premier League which starts on September 4th.

    His fills the vacancy left by Chris Gayle’s departure to Jamaica Tallawahs.

    Gayle led the franchise to the final in 2017 and qualifier 2 in 2018.

    On both occasions, they lost to eventual champions Trinbago Knight Riders.

    Brathwaite, who has been with Patriots since the team formed in 2015, says, “I’m very excited! I think we had a good last couple of years where we challenged really well on the field, we went to the final and then we made it to the playoffs as well. So this year is about trying to continue that same thought process, that same set of game plan and try to be as attacking as we could potentially be.”
