We are into the 2nd game of the Caribbean Premier League 2022 where the Saint Lucia Kings would take on the Trinbago Knight Riders. It is the first game for both teams, and they would be eager to make a confident start. There have been changes in the team composition for both sides and it will be interesting to see how they fare.
Trinbago Knight Riders have dominated Saint Lucia Kings in the past. They have lost only twice against them in the last 10 games. This would make the side confident in this game. Saint Lucia Kings look weak on paper, but this format of the game is known for throwing its surprises. It will be interesting to see how the Kings approach this contest.
Faf du Plessis is expected to lead the side in this game after finishing his stint at The Hundred. He would have a big challenge as they take on one of the strongest teams in this tournament. They haven’t had the best of records against the Knight Riders and du Plessis shall like to see his players punch above their weight in this game.
The side would look for a good start from Johnson Charles and du Plessis. Their skipper hasn’t enjoyed great form and he will need to deliver the goods here. Roston Chase and Tim David would be tasked with building partnerships in the middle order. Down the order, the side would like to see runs from the bats of Mark Deyal, Rivaldo Clarke, and Scott Kuggelejin.
Alzarri Joseph has to lead this attack from the front, and he must deliver early strikes in this game along with Kesrick Williams. Larry Edward has shown strong promises and the side shall have huge expectations from him. Their bowling attack lacks depth and Scott Kuggelejin and Roston Chase shall have little room for error.

Kieron Pollard’s side has some of the biggest stars in this format of the game and the skipper would be confident heading into this contest. They have enjoyed a good record in the past against the Kings and this will add to their confidence. Pollard shall aim for a perfect start in the tournament with a win in this game.
Sunil Narine and Tion Webster shall aim for a good start as both these players have their range of strokes. The middle order is strong for the team, and they would expect runs from Nicholas Pooran, Colin Munro, and Tim Seifert. In Andre Russel and Kieron Pollard, the side has two of the best finishers in this format and a good show would be expected from them.
On the bowling front, they would expect to see early breaks from Narine and Jayden Seals. Both these bowlers have been in good form. Akeal Hosein will have to bowl tight spells in the middle overs along with Russell. Pollard brings experience to the attack, and he will look to do well with Ali Khan and Ravi Rampaul.

It is expected to be a warm evening at St Kitts on September 2. The surface would be good to bat on. Batsmen would be able to play their strokes on the up with little assistance for the bowlers. The side batting first in this game would need to put up a target of 170 or more on the board.
Warner Park, St Kitts has a flat surface and a fast outfield, and batsmen have scored lots of runs on this wicket in the past. There isn’t much there on this surface for the fast bowlers and they must vary their pace to do well in this venue. Spinners have enjoyed a good record as the ball turns sharply on this wicket.
The wicket is known for getting slow as games progress and this makes it a difficult wicket to chase scores. Batsmen can play their strokes easily on this surface. Hence, the side winning the toss in this game shall have no hesitation in opting to bat first in this game.
Saint Lucia Kings shall have to punch above their weight to win this game. The side lacks depth in its bowling attack which is one of its biggest weaknesses. Their batsmen also have a huge challenge on hand. Trinbago Knight Riders come with a powerful batting line-up with the best finishers in the world and this would make them favorites here.
