Teams Preview

Trinbago Knight Riders Preview

Dwayne Bravo took over captaincy with Kieron Pollard opting to rest for the game. Lendl Simmons peaked at the right moment with a score of 96 runs last night. Darren Bravo played the perfect support act scoring 36 runs in the 144-run partnership in the middle. Colin Munro will be doubtful starter owing to his injury last night.  

Spin trio of Akeal Hossain, Khary Pierre, and Pravin Tambe applied the choke in runs flow by pressuring the opposition batsmen early on. Sikander Raza picked up 3 wickets in the end overs while skipper Bravo chipped in with a wicket. They won comfortably by a massive margin of 59 runs.

Top players to bet on:

Lendl Simmons – Simmons was the one player Knight riders would have wanted to return to form ahead of the knockouts. He was superb last night scoring 96 runs off just 63 balls to carry the momentum of the innings alongside Darren Bravo.  

Pravin Tambe – Pravin tambe bowled beautifully last night and ended with figures of 4-1-12-1 despite bowling a couple of overs in power play. He will be big boost to the spin department of the team.   

Trinbago Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Lendl Simmons, Tion Webster, Darren Bravo, Tim Seifert (wk), Dwayne Bravo/Kieron Pollard (c), Akeal Hosein, Amir Jangoo/Sunil Narine, Sikandar Raza, Anderson Phillip, Khary Pierre, Pravin Tambe

St Lucia Zouks Preview

St. Lucia Zouks will have a big set back as their star players Mohammed Nabi and Najibullah Zadran are set to leave for their national commitments. Rakheem Cornwall and Andre Fletcher must take responsibility and score more runs at the top. Roston Chase and Darren Sammy will be crucial with the bat in middle overs alongside young Mark Deyal and Javelle Glen.

Scott Kuggleijn and Kesrick Williams have played their limited role with the ball very well so far. Roston Chase, Rakheem Cornwall, and Javelle Glen will need to control the spin department as Nabi and Zakir khan are unavailable.  Chemar holder and Obed McCoy are currently giving runs at high economy rates.

Top players to bet on:

Rakheem Cornwall – Cornwall is one of the players who can take the attack to the opposition at the top. He scored runs at nearly 200+ strike rate last season. He can also bowl his 4 overs effectively.

Javelle Glen – Glen has been an excellent addition to the team`s bowling unit has he bowls a few quite overs and chips in with vital wickets. We expect him to play a bigger role wih the bat too in the upcoming matches.

St Lucia Zouks Predicted Playing XI:

Rahkeem Cornwall, Andre Fletcher (wk), Leniko Boucher, Kavem Hodge, Mark Deyal, Roston Chase, Daren Sammy (c), Javelle Glenn, Scott Kuggeleijn, Kesrick Williams, Chemar Holder

Weather Conditions

Tarouba has a dark and gloomy weather with nearly 70% chances of rain predicted as per weather forecasters on the match day. We expect rain to have any say in this match, but we hope for a result in this match.

Venue Details

Brian Lara Stadium has improved considerably with more consistent pace and bounce with the average scores in the range of 160-180 runs recently. Spinners still have an upper hand due to the dry nature of the pitch.  

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option considering the rain threat looming and DLS equation favoring the teams batting second mostly.

Winning Prediction

Trinbago knight riders have won all their matches with every player contributing the team`s cause. They have one of the biggest spin sections with 6-7 spinners in the squad and everyone is ready to respond. St. Lucia Zouks will be demolished by the absence of Nabi, Najibullah, and Zakir Khan. They will bank on the other younger players to take their team forward. We expect Trinbago knight Riders to win this match and extend their unbeaten record.

TRINBAGO KNIGHT RIDERS will win the match
