Barbados Royals vs Trinbago Knight Riders Prediction and Pick

Though not massively, head-to-head records are inclined in favor of Trinbago Knight Riders. In the 18 meetings between these two teams, the Knight Riders have emerged victoriously on 11 occasions, while Barbados has won 7 matches against Trinbago. The win against Guyana Amazon Warriors on Tuesday might work as a morale booster for Barbados Royals, but recent form is also in favor of Trinbago, as they have won three of their last four matches.

Predicted XI

Barbados Royals: Kyle Mayers, Johnson Charles, Azam Khan (wk ), Smit Patel, Glenn Phillips, Jason Holder (c), Raymon Reifer, Ashley Nurse, Nyeem Young, Jake Lintott, Oshane Thomas.

Trinbago Knight Riders: Lendl Simmons, Colin Munro, Kieron Pollard (c), Darren Bravo, Tim Seifert, Denesh Ramdin/Leonardo Julien (wk), Sunil Narine, Khary Pierre, Ali Khan, Ravi Rampaul, Akeal Hosein

Royals Are Back in the Semi-Final Race, but Trinbago Will Take Some Stopping

The points table can change very quickly in the Caribbean Premier League, and though Barbados Royals are still occupying the last spot, they are certainly back in contention for the semi-final places. Their previous match against Guyana Amazon Warriors was virtually a do-or-die game, and with the stakes being higher than ever before, the Royals players proved their mettle.

Jason Holder’s men were thoroughly professional across all the departments, but they will have to be equally flawless in their next match as well, as they will be up against will be the well-oiled machine of Trinbago Knight Riders. Kieron Pollard’s team outmuscled Jamaica Tallawahs in their last match.

Team News

Barbados Royals made two changes in the last match, and the players who were reintroduced in the playing XI justified their selection. Kyle Mayers scored a 20-ball 36, which set up the platform for Royals’ middle-order batters. Jason Holder also gave Mohammad Amir a chance to prove his class again, and he did just that by dismissing Guyana’s opener, Brandon King. So, it is likely that they will not make any changes for this match. Keeping a player of Shai Hope’s stature might seem like a luxury, but his numbers in this year’s CPL do not guarantee him a place in the starting XI. The decision to play Ali Khan in place of Isuru Udana worked like magic for Trinbago in their last match, as the pacer returned with four wickets. Kieron Pollard’s men are likely to make all but only one change. Denesh Ramdin missed the last match with a niggle, but he might feature in this clash.

Key Players

Kieron Pollard: Trinbago skipper Kieron Pollard has promoted himself up in the batting order in this year’s CPL, and his move has worked well for his team. He is Trinbago’s highest run-scorer with 169 runs. Pollard’s strike rate of 144.44 is highest amongst those Knight Riders batters who have scored over 50 runs.

Glenn Phillips: As mentioned earlier, the Barbados batters will face a stern test in this match, and the responsibility of putting up a good score will mainly be on the shoulders of Glenn Phillips. After a joyous time in England, Phillips has done well in the blue of Royals. He has scored 172 runs and his average of 28.66 is also the best among the Royals batters.
