Caribbean Premier League 2020: Trinbago Knight Riders vs. Barbados Tridents, Match no. 9
Winners Prediction: Knight Riders are the undefeated so far while Tridents were unlucky to lose in a 5-over contest last night after rain shortened the match. Both teams rely heavily on their spinners and have a pack of experienced quality T20 spinners in their ranks. Knight Riders have a slight edge over Tridents with their seasoned T20 campaigners Narine, Bravo, and Pollard. We predict Trinbago Knight riders to win this match.
Score Prediction: We expect a low scoring match between these two teams filled with quality spinners on a sluggish track. The average score in this match will be around 120-140 runs.
Toss Prediction: Chasing teams have won 80% of the matches so far and we expect the trend to continue in this match too. Both captains will prefer to bowl first if they win the toss.

TRINBAGO KNIGHT RIDERS: Sunil Narine, Lendl Simmons, Colin Munro, Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard (c), Dwayne Bravo, Tim Seifert (wk), Jayden Seales, Khary Pierre, Ali Khan, Fawad Ahmed

Players to Bet on
- Jonathan Charles – Charles began the match in aggressive fashion scoring 35 runs off just 19 balls with 3 boundaries and 2 sixes in the power play. He will look to give yet another rapid start to his team in this match too.
- Jason Holder – Jason Holder has 65 runs at a strike rate of 160+ in the two matches. He is yet to take a wicket but has given runs at just over 7 RPO so far. He is one of the quality picks considering his all-round capabilities.
- Rashid Khan – Rashid Khan despite taking 2 wickets was taken for 24 runs in the 5-over contest last night. He will look to make a comeback with a strong performance in this match.
TRINBAGO KNIGHT RIDERS
- Sunil Narine – Sunil Narine is the most valuable player of the tournament currently with fifties in both matches (50 & 53) at a strike rate of 140+ and 3 wickets at an economy rate of less than 5 RPO so far.
- Colin Munro – Munro played a sensible knock of 49* off 42 balls to guide his team in the chase. His 75-run partnership with Sunil Narine set the platform for his team in the tricky run chase.
- Ali Khan – Ali Khan dismissed opposition openers in the first over in both the matches and put them in the back foot early on. He has 3 wickets in the power play so far at an economy of less than 7 RPO.
