Hike Nevis Peak/Water Falls

Take a hike with a personal tour guide to the Nevis Peak. On the trail you will meet six waterfalls, bamboo trees, coco trees, herbs, refreshing cool water and a whole heap of mud and fun. Not only is hiking a great way to keep in shape but it’s good for bonding and sharing stories along the way. Once to the top you will be able to see spectacular views of St. Kitts. If you are lucky you may see a tiny fella (monkey) on the tour as well

Even though all our players are mega icons, there’s been a big buzz around these gents:

Marlon Samuels

marlon

This name rings a bell doesn’t it? Well, of course it does! Samuels is well known, especially in the West Indies, and he has a right to be. He’s been on his grind since 2000 (this will make 15 years) and continues to make notable comebacks in regards to the sport. There’s undoubtedly a lot of determination and skill in this Jamaican athlete… so much that he is now THE CAPTIAN of the SKN Patriots! Way to go, Samuels!!

 

Tabraiz Shamsi

Tabraiz_Shamsi_0

This sweet South African may only be 25, but he packs a big punch…or a big bowl I should say. This right-hander is well known for his impressive slow left-arm chinaman bowling. It’s also worth mentioning that Shamsi has played first class cricket on a number of teams including the Dolphins, Gauteng Under-19s, the Lions and the Titans, all of which are in South Africa. Wowzers! I’d say that’s a pretty exceptional resume for such a young lad!

 

Shahid Afridi

Shahid-Afridi-profile-picture-png

Most know him as Afridi. Some may know him as the infamous ‘BOOM BOOM’ while there are those that may know him as LALA. Honestly, it doesn’t even matter what people refer to him as because this man needs no introduction in the world of cricket. Why?? Well, for one, he’s often referred as of one the greatest cricketers of all time! This Pakistani has numerous World Records, a few being: youngest player to score a century in ODI, longest six in history in ODI, most wickets in a single World Cup as captain in ODIs, most wickets in T20… *desperate gasp for air* This list really goes on and on and I would be here all day trying to list his accomplishments. Let’s just say, we know why his name is in everyone’s mouth.

It’s evident that experiencing CPL T20 in Warner Park Stadium is a must. With a team like this, the St. Kitts-Nevis Patriots are looking pretty darn good. I hope the other teams bring their fire blankets as well as a couple of fire extinguishers because team SKN is bringing the HEAT this year.
