Trinbago Knight Riders
TKR are going to be led by Keiron Pollard once again in this cricket game. Out of nowhere, his team has gone from an unbeaten run to a downward slide. They had won their first four games without any concern but since then, have not managed to add anything on the win column. Our prediction guru thinks that TKR will be back winning games soon.
First, they need to get their eleven right. Since their last four games of cricket, some of their key men like Sunil Narine have been either injured or not been at their best. Secondly, losing games like the one they lost against GAW is a strict no. They had five wickets in hand but still lost the game by 19 runs. Our prediction is of the inclusion of Sunil Narine in this cricket match for TKR.
Here is our prediction of Trinbago Knight Riders’ playing XI:
- Lendl Simmons
- Sunil Narine
- Keiron Pollard
- Jimmy Neesham
- Colin Munro
- S Prasanna
- Dinesh Ramdin
- A Philip
- Khary Pierre
- Ali Khan
- Darren Bravo
Barbados Tridents are being led by Jason Holder in this tournament. He has been good from a leadership point of view but has failed to live up to the expectations with the bat. They won a crucial game against St Lucia Zouks that sealed their spot in the playoff.
Our expert prediction is that they are going to go with the same playing eleven that helped them win their last cricket game.
Here is our prediction of Barbados Tridents’ playing XI:
- Shakib Al Hasan
- Jason Holder
- Johnson Charles
- Ashley Nurse
- HR Walsh
- Jonathan Carter
- Alex Hales
- RA Reifer
- CK Holder
- JP Duminy
- Harry Gurney
Expert Prediction: TKR vs BT
With CPL now reaching its business end, every cricket game from here on becomes crucial. The last two cricket games of TKR might dictate where they end up on the points table. They would desperately want to finish among the top two teams to get a second chance if something goes wrong in the first qualifier.
Same would be the aim for Tridents as well. They have come from behind and are now in contention for the big prize. The addition of Shakib Al Hasan has been a huge boost for them. It has relieved pressure from their batsmen as well as bowlers. Our prediction guru thinks that he is going to remain an important factor behind Tridents’ success in this tournament.
With this being the last group game for Tridents, they are going to leave no stone unturned to finish higher on the points table. However, TKR have way too much class in their ranks to continue to lose games of cricket. Our expert prediction is of a come back to form for TKR’s team and an important win to boost their prediction.
Toss prediction? – The team winning the toss will look to bowl first. T20 format is a chase friendly format and with teams preferring to know what they need to chase, bowling first is a no brainer.
