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.
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.
