Both teams have found their rhythm and are looking in great shape as CPL 2022 approaches its business end. Trinbago Knight Riders, in spite of a struggling and inconsistent batting lineup, managed to secure two consecutive wins and propel themselves to number 3 in the points table.

They have a healthy chance now to finish in the top 4 and make it to the CPL 2022 playoffs. Saint Lucia Kings, on the other hand, delivered an all-round performance in their last game. 

The SLK batters posted a 189 runs total batting first at a venue where the average 1st innings score is 141. Later, Kesrick Williams, David Wiese, and Roshon Primus delivered match-winning spells as Kings bowled out the opposition for just 140 runs.

Now, both teams stand a chance to make it to the top 2 with a win in this match. With a reliable opening duo of Johnson Charles and Faf du Plessis coupled with a great variety in the bowling attack, the Kings seem to have the edge in the contest.

Trinbago Knight Riders Preview

It hasn’t been a good season for the 4-time CPL champions Trinbago Knight Riders. They seem to have found some rhythm in the recent matches with back-to-back wins, but the major concerns in their batting department still remain.

A star-studded batting lineup continues to flop while more bowlers join the list of match-winners for TKR. Rampaul brings plenty of experience to this bowling unit and along with Narine, Hossein, and Dupavillon will pose a tough challenge to the Saint Lucia Kings. One positive from their recent successful chase would be that both Russell and Hossein were unbeaten as Knight Riders registered a 4-wicket win.  

Nevertheless, the burden of scoring still pretty much rests with Munro and Seifert in the middle order. If TKR lose the toss and are put to bat first, they would be in a lot of trouble as the opposition is coming in hot with an in-form bowling attack.

Because there is no other reliable batter lower down the order and even the match finishers have lost their edge, Munro and Seifert have no other option than to adopt a cautious approach to their innings. This will keep Knight Riders from reaching a competitive total and hence, Narine, Pollard, and opener Nicholas Pooran become all the more important in this fixture. 

Trinbago Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Tion Webster, Nicholas Pooran, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert (wk), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard (c), Akeal Hosein, Ravi Rampaul, Daryn Dupavillon, Anderson Phillip

St Lucia Kings Preview

With the same number of wins from 7 matches as that of Trinbago Knight Riders, the Kings are all set to stake their claim for the 2nd spot in the points table. The batting department has produced better results than the Knight Riders. Saint Lucia Kings scored 161 runs batting first in two back-to-back matches which is considered a par total for the particular venue. 

Kings lost on one occasion defending 161 and won the very next match defending the same total. While the bowlers have bowled out the opposition for 140 and 100 runs in their last two outings, the batters have improved their performances in the lower order.

The opening duo of Charles and Faf has been consistently delivering for the Saint Lucia Kings and now with Wiese, Roston Chase, and Roshon Primus making contributions lower down the order, the Kings have depth in their batting order.

Kesrick Williams, David Wiese, Alzarri Joseph, and Matthew Forde are some of the key bowlers in the Kings' bowling attack. There are many options for Faf du Plessis given the variety in this bowling department.

St Lucia Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Johnson Charles, Faf du Plessis (c), Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Adam Hose, Roston Chase, David Wiese, Roshon Primus, Alzarri Joseph, Matthew Forde, Larry Edward, Kesrick Williams

Venue Details

The Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba, Trinbago has a pretty low 1st innings average score. Only 6 out of the 30 matches played at this venue has a team crossed the 170-runs mark.

Toss: To Bowl

Bowling first is the way to go at this venue. Though Kings won their last game here batting first, they will be up against a quality bowling attack of TKR which has a great many match-winning bowlers at present. As such, it is in the best interest of both sides to opt to bowl first on winning the toss.

Both teams pack a strong bowling unit with multiple match-winners. However, when it comes to the batting department, Saint Lucia Kings have a slight edge over Trinbago Knight Riders. Toss can play a big role and the team chasing will start with an advantage. However, given the current form of SLK with respect to both batting and bowling, they will be our favourites to win.

Our prediction is for Saint Lucia Kings to win the match
