Kieron Pollard (TKR) – Caribbean T20 Stalwart

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Trinbago Knight Riders and St. Lucia Zouks are the top two teams in the points table currently. Trinbago Knight Riders have a stronger batting line-up compared to St. Lucia Zouks on paper easily. Zouks will have the edge over the Knight Riders in the bowling department with both pacers and spinners contributing equally. Knight Riders have the edge over the ST. Lucia Zouks as they are the only undefeated team and have better experienced T20 veterans in their team and we expect them to win this contest.

Score Prediction: Queen`s Park Oval is expected to have a good balance between the bat and ball. We can expect scores in the range of 160-180 runs in this match. Batsmen will find run scoring easier here than the Brian Lara Stadium at Tarouba.

Toss Prediction: Chasing is the best option as teams will be unaware of the safe target and batting conditions are expected t remain the same throughout the entire duration of the match.
