Caribbean Premier League 2020: Barbados Tridents vs Trinbago Knight Riders, Match no. 17

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Guyana Amazon Warriors have lost their last 2 matches and will need to win this match to bring their campaign on track. Trinbago Knight Riders are on a roll with wins in all their matches so far. They have a better team than Guyana Amazon Warriors on paper with experienced players. Amazon Warriors batting is their biggest worry and will need to post good scores on board to help their team win consistently. We expect Trinbago Knight Riders to continue their winning streak.

Score Prediction: The pitch is becoming increasingly tough to bat on with the last two matches ending with just scores around 100-110 runs. We can expect a fresh & much improved pitch in this contest owing to a day-off available. We can expect scores in the range of 140-160 runs in this match. 

Toss Prediction: Chasing is best option in this pitch as the moisture content available early on with help the bowlers considerably. Few captains raised their concerns over the same as the toss plays a big factor in the match result in this case.

Players to Bet on

BARBADOS TRIDENTS

  1. Kyle Mayers – Kyle Mayers played an outstanding knock of 85 runs from 57 balls to take his team to a good total of 148. He scored nearly 60% of his team`s total runs. 
  2. Mitchell Santner – Santner opened the bowling last night and strangled the opposition with his brilliant bowling figures of 4-1-10-1. To add to it, he contributed vital 20-odd runs with the bat to end the innings on a high. 
  3. Rashid Khan – Rashid Khan is slowly building up momentum and looked good for his spell of 4/33 last night. He can be a big match winner and would love to bowl on these spin-friendly conditions. 

TRINBAGO KNIGHT RIDERS 

  1. Darren Bravo – Jr. Bravo is on a roll with scores of 26*, 23*, & 54* in the last three matches. He builds crucial partnerships in the middle order to lead his team`s batting.   
  2. Kieron Pollard – Pollard has taken up the bowling duties too in the last couple of matches. Pollard`s batting was not needed for the team in the last couple of matches but when he gets sometime in crease, we can expect big hits from him for sure. 
  3. Khary Pierre – Khary Pierre has made sure their team does not miss the services of Sunil Narine with figures of 3/18, 1/19, & 1/19 in the last three matches.
