tkr vs br Match Prediction & Analysis

CPL2021 is off to a fresh start and is taking place under closed doors in St. Kitts island owing to pandemic restrictions. Trinbago Knight Riders and Barbados Royals suffered defeats in their opening games against Guyana Amazon Warriors and St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots respectively. Both teams will look to make a comeback in this match and get their first points on board.  With teams looking to find the right balance and strength in the playing XI, they also don’t want to be lagging in the points table early in the tournament.

Teams Preview

Trinbago Knight Riders Preview

Knight Riders failed to chase down a middling target of 143 runs in the last game as they ended with 133/9 in 20 overs. Denesh Ramdin (28 runs), Sunil Narine (20 runs), Akeal Hossain (22 runs), and Tim Seifert (23 runs) got starts but failed to make a big score to lead their team to victory. They kept losing wickets and never had that one big partnership which could have helped them chase the total.

Knight Riders spinners Akeal Hossain and Sunil Narine had a brilliant night with identical bowling figures of 4-0-17-2 in the match between them. Jayden Seales, Isuru Udana, and Ravi Rampaul picked up a wicket each but gave away 105 runs in their 12 overs. Khary Pierre or Ali khan might get a chance in the playing XI in this match.

Players to bet on:

Sunil Narine: Narine had superb bowling figures of 4-0-17-2 picking up wickets of Hemraj and Odean Smith early in the match. He also scored 20 runs off 17 balls with the bat. He can be effective with bat and ball in this match.

Colin Munro: Munro was looking dangerous as he scored 13 runs off 7 balls with 2 sixes in his short stay. We expect him to make a big contribution with the bat in this match.

Trinbago Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Lendl Simmons, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert, Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard (c), Denesh Ramdin (wk), Sunil Narine, Akeal Hosein, Ravi Rampaul, Jayden Seales, Khary Pierre/Ali Khan

Barbados Royals Preview

Barbados Royals slipped to 67/4 in the first half of their innings in a stiff chase of 176 runs. Shai Hope (44 runs) and Azam Khan (28 runs) tried to stage a comeback but never really came close to threatening in the chase. Other batters too must stand up with the bat to help their team post a big score.

Pacers Oshane Thomas and Mohammed Amir bowled superbly with combined bowling figures of 8-0-42-4 in the match. But trio of Jason Holder, Hayden Walsh, and Thisara Perera gave runs at over 12 RPO in the match as the opposition racked up 175 runs in their 20 overs.

Players to bet on:

Oshane Thomas: Thomas ran through the opposition top order as he picked up 3 wickets inside the first 7 overs. He will look to get more wickets early in the match to give his team an upper hand in the contest.

Azam Khan: Azam Khan scored 28 runs off 16 balls and hit 3 sixes in his knock. His partnership with Shai Hope was the only time their batting looked comfortable, and he will have a big role to play in the lower order in this match too.

Barbados Royals Predicted Playing XI:

Glenn Phillips, Johnson Charles, Shai Hope (wk), Kyle Mayers, Azam Khan, Jason Holder (c), Thisara Perera, Ashley Nurse, Mohammad Amir, Oshane Thomas, Hayden Walsh

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Hr Temp Rain W. speed W. direction Clouds

Weather Conditions

Bassetre will have a bright and sunny weather with no chances of rain. We expect a full match with good conditions to play with no interruptions whatsoever.

Venue Details

Warner Park will have a good sporting track with some assistance for spinners especially. The pitch slowed down as the match progresses in the last 2 games and batting was a little difficult in the second innings. We expect scores to be around 160-170 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first won both matches played this season but teams winning toss opted to bowl first in both matches. We expect the captains to bat first in this match if they win the toss.

TKR vs BR Winning Prediction

Barbados Royals have a great depth in the batting department with many all-rounders in the lower middle order while Knight Riders have better quality hitters in the top order who can win matches on their own. Knight Riders clearly have a superior spin attack when compared to Royals with Sunil Narine. Pacers on both teams will need to contain the run flow in the death overs especially. Royals lacks an established second spinner on this pitch who can give them more bite on this track. We expect Trinbago Knight riders to win this match.
