Barbados Tridents vs Trinbago Knight Riders CPL 17th Match Prediction

With the tournament all heated up, teams will now be getting more and more desperate to book those all-important playoff berths. One of those teams is the Barbados Tridents. With a mere 4 points from 5 games, they might be in 3rd place for the time being, but not comfortably so given that Guyana Amazon Warriors and Jamaica Tallawahs are breathing down their necks, held back only by their run rate. Even St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are a mere two points away owing to their victory against this very team. To add to their woes, their next match is against an absolutely dominant Trinbago Knight Riders. TKR have won 5 out of 5 - and all in strong fashion. Reminiscent of last year’s Guyana, they have been a force of nature this year, and it will take another to stop it. Before this seemingly unstoppable force meets that very movable object, let’s take a look at their components.

Trinbago Knight Riders Preview & Form

Given the sheer star power of the team, it really would have been a shame if they had been performing at less than their capacity. The Knight Riders are happily in first place, two points and quite a bit of net run rate ahead of the Zouks. In their most recent match, they simply brushed aside Guyana Amazon Warriors - a team with plenty of star power that’s just not connecting somehow. The Guyanese were restricted to a pathetic 112/7, which Trinbago topped without breaking a sweat. If they keep up such performances, they will most likely run away with the CPL trophy this year.

Barbados Tridents Preview & Form

The Tridents were looking miserable until they bested the Tallawahs to climb to third place. However, with two games against the top two teams coming up, they might not be there for too long. Like Guyana, the Barbadian war machine just isn’t well-oiled. Despite plenty of talent, the team isn’t reaping the benefits yet. That being said, they did win their last match convincingly. Although the batting was definitely a one-man show, the bowling showed them their strengths, and one can only hope that they learn from the experience moving forward.

Match Prediction

Trinbago players are in such good form that it’s hard to count any of them out. Expect Colin Munro and Darren Bravo to lead with the bat, while Sunil Narine and Khary Pierre capture the wickets.

Barbados do have a 3-2 advantage over TKR in their last 5 meetings, and will have to use that fact to gain the confidence they direly need. Expect Rashid Khan and Raymond Reifer to restrict the batsmen, while Johnson Charles and Kyle Mayers score the runs.
