Pitch Report:

Tuesday was probably one of the worst days for the T20 format as totals of 107/7 and 55 were recorded by the teams batting first. The pitch doesn’t look like improving either for the final and hence, we could be in for yet another low-scoring match.

Average 1st innings score: 120 (Last 6 matches)

Record of Chasing Teams: Won –  4, Lost – 2

Probable Playing XIs:

Trinbago Knight Riders:

Sunil Narine, Lendl Simmons, Tion Webster, Tim Seifert (wk), Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard (c), Dwayne Bravo, Ali Khan, Khary Pierre, Fawad Ahmed, Akeal Hosein.

Bench: Amir Jangoo, Pravin Tambe, Anderson Phillip, Jayden Seales.

St Lucia Zouks:

Rahkeem Cornwall, Mark Deyal, Andre Fletcher (wk), Roston Chase, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Daren Sammy (c), Javelle Glen, Kesrick Williams, Zahir Khan, Scott Kuggeleijn.

Bench: Saad Bin Zafar, Kavem Hodge, Chemar Holder, Kimani Melius, Leniko Boucher, Obed McCoy.

Expected Top Players:

Sunil Narine

Sunil Narine started the tournament with back to back fifties but hasn’t done much with the bat since then. However, he has been quite economical with the ball having conceded only 91 runs in the 20 overs alongside picking up six wickets.

Roston Chase

Roston Chase has been used pretty smartly by his skipper Daren Sammy which played a key role in the off-spinner’s success with the ball. Chase scored 203 runs in eight innings at an average of 40.60 and picked up  8 wickets at an economy of 4.88 only.

Lendl Simmons

Lendl Simmons started the tournament with low scores but currently, his tally of 272 runs at 30.22 is the highest this season for TKR. Simmons recorded scores of 54* and 96 in his last three matches and will be crucial in the final.

Our Betting Tips:

The St Lucia Zouks have been a spin-dominant team and have got enough resources to bowl full 20 overs through the spinners. Hence, they do have the potential to stop the unbeaten Trinbago Knight Riders.

CPL 2020: 2nd Semi-final, Guyana Amazon Warriors vs St Lucia Zouks – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details:

The 2nd Semi-final of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 will be played between the Guyana Amazon Warriors and the St Lucia Zouks at the Brian Lara Stadium, Trinidad. The scheduled time for the match is 05:30 PM Local Time (03:00 AM, September 09) (09:30 PM UTC). This series will be live on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 1 HD in India. Live streaming is available on Fan Code.

Preview

After hard-fought 30 league matches, the CPL 2020 is into its climax with the semi-finals set to take place on Tuesday. The second knockouts match will see the Guyana Amazon Warriors and St Lucia Zouks locking horns against each other. Coming into this crucial game, the St Lucia Zouks romped past the Jamaica Tallawahs who ended up at the fourth position in the points table and will be facing the Trinbago Knight Riders in the first semi-final.

The Guyana Amazon Warriors, on the other hand, haven’t played their best cricket, one would say, and will be keen on finally laying their hands on the trophy after failing constantly in the finals over the years. But for that to happen, they will have to go past the St Lucia Zouks who are performing really well this season under Darren Sammy’s leadership.

Pitch Condition/Report

The pitch is likely to assist the spinners once again and the team with better bowling performance will have an upper hand throughout. The team winning the toss is expected to bowl first.

Average first innings score: 129 (Last five matches played here in this tournament)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 3, Lost – 2, Tied – 0

Probable Playing XIs

Guyana Amazon Warriors:

Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Ross Taylor, Kevin Sinclair, Sherfane Rutherford/Keemo Paul, Chris Green (c), Romario Shepherd, Naveen-ul-Haq, Imran Tahir.

Bench: Odean Smith, Anthony Bramble, Ashmead Nedd, Jasdeep Singh, Kissoondath Magram, Sherfane Rutherford/Keemo Paul.

St Lucia Zouks:

Rahkeem Cornwall, Mark Deyal, Andre Fletcher (wk), Roston Chase, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Daren Sammy (c), Javelle Glen, Kesrick Williams, Zahir Khan, Scott Kuggeleijn.

Bench: Saad Bin Zafar, Kavem Hodge, Chemar Holder, Kimani Melius, Leniko Boucher, Obed McCoy.

Expected Top Players

Shimron Hetmyer

Shimron Hetmyer is the second-highest run-scorer of the CPL 2020. He has scored 267 runs at an average of 38.14 in 10 matches and will be keen on taking his team to the final.

Mohammad Nabi

Mohammad Nabi has been a brilliant T20 freelancer and he proved it again in CPL. He has so far scored 154 runs and picked 11 wickets proving his mettle in both the departments.

Imran Tahir

Imran Tahir is the joint highest wicket-taker of the tournament with Mujeeb Ur Rahman. He has picked 15 wickets in 10 matches at an exceptional average of 14.33 and has delivered 39 overs so far conceding 234 runs only.

Our Betting Tips

It is 1-1 as far as head to head battles are concerned in this year’s CPL. While the Zouks won the first game of the season by 10 runs, the Warriors hit back winning the turnaround game by seven wickets. The Warriors have the experience of giving their best in the knockout matches, at least in the semi-finals, and they are expected to go past the Zouks in this game as well.

Our Prediction: Guyana Amazon Warriors are expected to win the match.

Caribbean Premier League 2020: 1st Semi-final, Trinbago Knight Riders vs Jamaica Tallawahs – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details:

The 1st Semi-Final match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 will be played between the Trinbago Knight Riders and Jamaica Tallawahs at the Brian Lara Stadium, Trinidad.

The match is scheduled to start at 10:00 AM Local Time (07:30 PM IST) (02:00 PM GMT)

This series will be live on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 1 HD in India. Live streaming is available on Fan Code.

Preview:

Even after winning ten successive matches, the Trinbago Knight Riders find themselves in a must-win situation due to the semi-final based knockout system. The Knight Riders will be in full force on Tuesday as they have been resting some of their key players once they sealed their spot in the top two. They will be up against the Jamaica Tallawahs in the semi-final. The Tallawahs made into top four despite losing as many as six matches. A washout against Patriots did help Jamaica to edge over Barbados Tridents in the points table by mere one point.

Pitch Report:

The final weekend of the league stage witnessed somewhat better pitches for batting but even those got slow down due to back to back matches. Since the first semi-final will be the first game to be played on a new strip, it could produce a high-scoring match.

Average first innings score: 140 (Last four matches)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 2, Lost – 2

Probable Playing XIs:

Trinbago Knight Riders:

Sunil Narine, Lendl Simmons, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert (wk), Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard (c), Sikandar Raza, Dwayne Bravo, Ali Khan/Khary Pierre, Fawad Ahmed, Jayden Seales/Akeal Hosein.

Bench: Tion Webster, Amir Jangoo, Pravin Tambe, Anderson Phillip, Ali Khan/Khary Pierre, Jayden Seales/Akeal Hosein.

Jamaica Tallawahs:

Glenn Phillips (wk), Jermaine Blackwood/Nkrumah Bonner, Chadwick Walton, Rovman Powell (c), Andre Russell, Asif Ali, Carlos Brathwaite, Sandeep Lamichhane, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Fidel Edwards, Veerasammy Permaul/Oshane Thomas.

Bench: Jermaine Blackwood/Nkrumah Bonner, Ramaal Lewis, Nicholas Kirton, Ryan Persaud, Preston McSween, Veerasammy Permaul/Oshane Thomas.

Expected Top Performers:

Sunil Narine

Sunil Narine could only play four matches in the league stage as he underwent a kidney surgery. In those four games, he scored 140 runs at a strike rate over 150 with help of two fifties. He also picked up 5 wickets while conceding runs at an economy of only 4.87.

Glenn Phillips

Glenn Phillips is the only player to amass 300 runs in the CPL 2020 which he did in nine innings by smashing 18 sixes alongside 19 fours. Across those nine innings, Phillips recorded five scores in excess of 40 runs including an unbeaten 79 against the Patriots where he batted full 20 overs.

Kieron Pollard

Kieron Pollard has been in sensational form with the bat in this CPL as he scored 207 runs in seven innings at an average of 51.75. Pollard struck 20 sixes in this competition and had a strike rate of 204.95. He has done a decent job with the ball as well, picking up four wickets in the five innings at an economy rate around 7.5.

Our Betting Tips:

The Trinbago Knight Riders’ full-strength squad is probably the most experienced line-up in the history of T20 cricket. The players they have got cover up all the bases much better than any other side in this tournament. Hence, it will be difficult to not see them register a comfortable win on Tuesday morning.

Probable Winners:

Trinbago Knight Riders are expected to win this match and qualify to the finals.

Record of chasing teams: Won – 3, Lost – 2, Tied – 0

Our Betting Tips

Jamaica Tallawahs will have to play their best cricket to go past the St Lucia Zouks in this game. But the latter side has enough firepower to keep them at bay and take the winning momentum into the knockouts.

Our Prediction: St Lucia Zouks are expected to win this match.

CPL 2020: Match 29, St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots vs Trinbago Knight Riders: Who will win the match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details

The 29th match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 will be played between the Trinbago Knight Riders and the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots at the Brian Lara Stadium, Trinidad. The match is scheduled to start at 10:00 AM Local Time (07:30 PM IST) (02:00 PM GMT). This series will be live on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 1 HD in India. Live streaming is available on Fan Code.

Preview

The 29th and the penultimate match of the ongoing CPL will see the unbeaten Trinbago Knight Riders locking horns against the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots on Sunday. The TKR side will be chasing history as they will aim to win their 10th match on the trot and stay unbeaten throughout the league stage. The Patriots, on the other hand, have been poor as they have only won one matches out of nine and lost seven and they will be keen on bowing out on a high.

Pitch Condition

The spinners will have fun bowling on this wicket. So many matches have been played at the venue and it has crumbled at times too leading to low-scoring matches. Expect the team winning the toss to bat first.

Average first innings score: 128  (Based on last 5 games)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 2, Lost – 2, NR – 1

Probable Playing XIs

Trinbago Knight Riders:

Lendl Simmons, Tion Webster/Colin Munro, Tim Seifert, Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Sikandar Raza/Sunil Narine, Dwayne Bravo, Akeal Hosein, Kharry Pierre, Fawad Ahmed, Jaydon Seales

Bench: Colin Munro/Tion Webster, Sunil Narine/Sikandar Raza, Pravin Tambe, Anderson Phillip

St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots

Evin Lewis, Chris Lynn, Joshua Da Silva, Ben Dunk, Dinesh Ramdin, Colin Archibald/Sohail Tanvir, Rayad Emrit, Alzarri Joseph, Imran Khan, Sheldon Cottrell, Jon-Russ Jaggesar

Bench: Ish Sodhi, Kieran Powell, Colin Archibald/Sohail Tanvir, Jahmar Hamilton

Expected Top Players

Darren Bravo

Darren Bravo has been in good nick in the tournament. He has scored 239 runs in eight outings at a strike-rate of 113. He will be looking to continue in the same vein ahead of the knockous.

Evin Lewis

Evin Lewis has been the lone and best batter for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The southpaw has scored 223 runs in nine matches at an SR of 130.

Kieron Pollard

Kieron Pollard has found form at the right time for his team. He has mustered 207 runs in seven innings at a strike-rate of 205. He also picked three wickets in the last game which keeps him in good stead ahead of the semi-finals.

Our Betting Tips

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have been extremely poor this season. Though they will be looking to win and end the season on a high, it is tough to go past the TKR side this season it seems. Each player of their team has stood up so far and they are expected to win their 10th match on the trot.

Our Prediction: Trinbago Knight Riders are expected to win the match.

CPL 2020: Match 26, Barbados Tridents vs Guyana Amazon Warriors – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details:

The 26th match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 is all set to be played between the Barbados Tridents and the Guyana Amazon Warriors at the Brian Lara Stadium.

The match is scheduled to start at 05:30 PM Local Time (03:00 AM IST, 04th Sept) (09:30 PM GMT).

Preview:

Only few league matches are left in the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and the 26th match of the tournament will witness the Barbados Tridents and Guyana Amazon Warriors facing each other. This is an extremely important game for the Tridents who are two points behind the fourth placed Jamaica Tallawahs. They will have a key eye on the 25th match as well where the Tallawahs will be taking on the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots.

The Warriors, on the other hand, will be keen on keeping their winning momentum going. They crushed the St Lucia Zouks in their previous outing by seven wickets. With the knockouts approaching fast, the team led by Chris Green will be looking to make the most of their form and make it to the final even this season.

Pitch Condition

It is tough to predict the behaviour of the pitch. The second match of the day has always sprung a surprise this season with the pitch deteriorating a lot. Something of similar sorts is expected in this match as well.

Average first innings score: 150 (Last three matches played here in this tournament)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 1, Lost – 2, Tied – 0

Probable Playing XIs

Guyana Amazon Warriors:

Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Ross Taylor, Kevin Sinclair, Keemo Paul, Chris Green (c), Romario Shepherd, Naveen-ul-Haq, Imran Tahir

Bench: Kissoondath Magram, Odean Smith, Anthony Bramble, Ashmead Nedd, Sherfane Rutherford, Jasdeep Singh

Barbados Tridents:

Johnson Charles, Shai Hope (wk), Kyle Mayers, Jason Holder (c), Jonathan Carter, Justin Greaves, Ashley Nurse, Raymon Reifer, Mitchell Santner, Rashid Khan, Hayden Walsh

Bench: Corey Anderson, Nyeem Young, Joshua Bishop, Shamarh Brooks, Keon Harding, Shayan Jahangir

Expected Top Players

Jason Holder

The Barbados Tridents skipper Jason Holder hasn’t been on top of his game in the last couple of matches. But he can’t be ignored at any cost thanks to his all-round abilities. He has scored 120 runs and has picked seven wickets so far in the tournament.

Rashid Khan

This man is an absolute genius. Rashid Khan has flummoxed the best batsmen with his variations and he has continued to do so even in the CPL. So far he has picked 10 wickets and will be crucial for the Tridents if they are to make the semi-finals.

Imran Tahir

Imran Tahir is getting younger with every match he is playing. He has ruled the CPL charts well with 12 wickets to his name and is likely to play a decisive role for the Warriors once again.

Our Betting Tips

The Tridents have lost to the Warriors previously in the season. But with the title defence at stake, the Jason Holder-led side is likely to put up their best performance in this game. We are backing the Barbados Tridents to avenge for their earlier loss.

Our Prediction: Barbados Tridents are expected to win this match.

Match Details

The 25th match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 will be played between the Jamaica Tallawahs and St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots at the Brian Lara Stadium, Trinidad on 3rd September 2020. The match can be viewed live on the Star Sports Network at 7:30 PM IST. Live streaming will be available on Fancode.

Preview

The 25th match of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will see the Jamaica Tallwahs facing the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The Tallawahs will be thanking their stars as this is a crucial game for them and the way, the Patriots have struggled so far, it should be an easy victory for them. Having said that, the St Kitts team won’t be under any pressure and they will look to spoil the party for the other teams after having almost knocked out.

The Tallawahs are at the fourth place with six points to their name at the moment while the Barbados Tridents are only two points behind them. The Tridents will be hoping for the Patriots to put their best foot forward and make things easier for them.

Pitch Condition/Report

The surface at the Brian Lara Cricket Stadium has fared well in the first match of the day. The trend is likely to continue with the scores around 160 possible in this match as well.

Average first innings score: 156 (Last five matches)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 1; Lost – 4

Probable Playing XIs

Jamaica Tallawahs: Chadwick Walton, Glenn Philips, Jermaine Blackwood, Nkrumah Bonner, Rovman Powell, Andre Russell, Asif Ali, Carlos Braithwaite, Sandeep Lamichhane, Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman, Fidel Edwards

Bench: Oshane Thomas, Ramaal Lewis, Preston McSween, Nicholas Kirton

Bench: Ish Sodhi, Sohail Tanvir, Kieran Powell, Jahmar Hamilton

Expected Top Players

Glenn Phillips

The New Zealand opener has been in great form this season so far. He has scored 248 runs in seven innings at a strike-rate of 128. He is the top run-scorer of the tournament as well.

Evin Lewis

Evin Lewis is the leading run-getter for the Patriots. He has mustered around 202 runs in eight matches and will be keen to gain some form in this match.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman

Mujeeb Ur Rahman has turned out to be the best spinner for his team in the CPL 2020. He has so far scalped 13 wickets in eight outings at an economy of 4.25.

Our Betting Tips

No prizes for guessing. The Patriots have won only one match so far this season and with their top batsmen struggling big time, there seems to be no hope for them to even retaliate. However, nothing can be taken for granted. We are going with the Jamaica Tallawahs to win this match.

Our Prediction: Jamaica Tallawahs are expected to win this game.

CPL 2020: Match 24, St Lucia Zouks vs Guyana Amazon Warriors – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

CPL

CPL (Image Credit: Twitter)

Match Details:

The 24th match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 is all set to be played between the St Lucia Zouks and the Guyana Amazon Warriors at the Brian Lara Stadium. The match is scheduled to start at 05:30 PM Local Time (03:00 AM IST, 03rd Sep) (09:30 PM GMT).

Preview

The match 24 of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 will see the St Lucia Zouks locking horns against the Guyana Amazon Warriors. Both the teams are having contrasting campaigns in the tournament at the moment with the Zouks, under Darren Sammy, doing exceptionally well. But the Warriors have struggled a bit and despite that, they are not out of the semi-finals race.

The knockouts are nearing with every passing day and each game is crucial for the teams. The Zouks are at the second position while their opponents in this match are just below them at the third. The second match of the day has often turned out to be low-scoring and it will be interesting to see how this game pans out.

Pitch Report/Condition

Despite having a break of around a week, the Brian Lara Stadium witnessed another low-scoring where the team batting first posted only 92 runs on the board. If that is the case, yet another low-scoring affair is on the cards.

Average first innings score: 138 (Last two matches played here in this tournament)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 1, Lost – 1, Tied – 0

Probable Playing XIs

Guyana Amazon Warriors:

Brandon King, Kevin Sinclair, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Ross Taylor, Keemo Paul, Chris Green (c), Romario Shepherd, Naveen-ul-Haq, Kissoondath Magram, Imran Tahir

Bench: Ashmead Nedd, Odean Smith, Anthony Bramble, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Sherfane Rutherford, Jasdeep Singh

St Lucia Zouks:

Rahkeem Cornwall, Andre Fletcher (wk), Leniko Boucher, Roston Chase, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Javelle Glenn/Mark Deyal, Daren Sammy (c), Scott Kuggeleijn, Kesrick Williams, Zahir Khan

Bench: Saad Bin Zafar, Kavem Hodge, Obed McCoy, Chemar Holder, Kimani Melius, Javelle Glenn/Mark Deyal

Expected Top Players

Mohammad Nabi

This man is a brilliant all-rounder. Mohammad Nabi is one of the main reasons why the St Lucia Zouks are doing well this season. He has picked up 10 wickets so far in seven matches and has also mustered 94 runs.

Roston Chase

Roston Chase has turned out to be an unlikely hero for the Zouks so far. He has scored 170 runs in seven matches and has also picked four wickets. He will be itching to continue performing the same way.

Nicholas Pooran

Nicholas Pooran has found his form at the right time. He scored a scintillating century recently and has overall amassed 206 runs in seven matches at a strike-rate of 152.59.

Our Prediction

It will all come down to which team’s spinners do well in this game. No team is lacking quality in that aspect and the team batting first has to put up a decent total on the board to defend it easily later on. St Lucia Zouks, at the moment, seem to be the strongest on paper and expect them to register yet another victory.

Our Prediction: St Lucia Zouks are expected to win this match.

CPL 2020: Match 23, Trinbago Knight Riders vs St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details

The 23rd match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 will be played between Trinbago Knight Riders and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots at the Brian Lara Stadium, Trinidad. The match can be viewed live on the Fan Code at 7:30 PM IST.

Preview

The league stage of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) is coming to an end now and the teams are battling fiercely for a place in the knockouts. The 23rd match of the tournament will see the unbeaten Trinbago Knight Riders facing the struggling the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots who have won only a solitary game so far and lost six matches.

The Knight Riders, on the other hand, have been exceptional winning all of their games so far. Some of the T20 champions are playing in their side and the fact that Sunil Narine and Dwayne Bravo have returned only bolsters their line-up even more.

Pitch Condition/Report

The action returned to Brian Lara stadium the other day after a week’s break and the pitch was a decent one for the first match. Something of similar sorts is expected today as well.

Average first innings score: 161 (Based on last 5 games)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 0, Lost – 5

Probable Playing XIs

Trinbago Knight Riders

Lendl Simmons, Sunil Narine, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert, Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Akeal Hosein, Khary Pierre, Sikandar Raza, Fawad Ahmed

Bench: Pravin Tambe, Jayden Seales, Anderson Philip, Ali Khan

St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots

Evin Lewis, Kieran Powell, Joshua Da Silva, Ben Dunk, Dinesh Ramdin, Sohail Tanvir, Rayad Emrit, Ish Sodhi, Imran Khan, Alzarri Joseph, Jon Russ Jaggesar

Bench: Sheldon Cottrell, Jahmar Hamilton, Chris Lynn, Colin Archibald

Expected Top Players

Colin Munro

Colin Munro has mustered 198 runs and seems to be slowly gaining his top form as the tournament is approaching the knockouts. He batted well in the previous game as well and will be keen to continue in the same vein.

Kieron Pollard

Kieron Pollard has led the team from the front with the team this season. His recent innings of 72 runs turned a lot of heads and is hitting the ball well. So far he has scored 165 runs in seven matches at a brilliant strike-rate of 206.

Rayad Emrit

There is nothing much to cheer for the Patriots but their skipper has been bowling well. Rayad Emrit has tried his best with the ball picking wickets and being economical but their batsmen haven’t stepped up to the task.

Our Betting Predictions

This is one of more straightforward predictions in this year’s CPL. Going by the current form of the teams, this is the clash between the top and bottom placed teams and there is only one favourite. Trinbago Knight Riders should steamroll the St Kitts franchise once again.

Our Prediction: Trinbago Knight Riders are expected to win the match.

Preview

The league stage of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) is ending soon and the teams are fighting hard to make it to the top four of the points table. The Guyana Amazon Warriors and Barbados Tridents will face-off in the 22nd match of the tournament. Both the sides have played seven matches so far with the Warriors managing to win three of those.

The Tridents, the defending champions, on the other hand, have been extremely poor winning only a couple of matches thus far..

The Jason Holder-led side will be keen to finish things off well this time around.

Pitch Condition/Report

The action returns to the Brian Lara Stadium after a week’s break and the pitch is expected to be a good one at least for today. The batsmen should have fun in the middle in that case.

The Barbados Tridents skipper Jason Holder has led from the front for his team. He has so far picked seven wickets in as many matches and has batted superbly as well coming in at four or five.

Imran Tahir

The South African leg-spinner in the second highest wicket-taker of the CPL 2020 so far with 11 wickets to his name. This doesn’t come as a surprise with the way pitches have been and the top performer that Tahir is. Expect him to continue to weave his magic.

Nicholas Pooran

Nicholas Pooran finally found his form in the last game where he scored a century. He has now amassed 206 runs in seven outings and is at the second place in the list of top run-getters.

Our Betting Tips

This is the rematch of last year’s final and it is expected to be a one heck of an encounter. The Tridents have the upper hand having won the title clash. Also, the current situation in the points table demand a better performance from them. Expect the defending champions to improve their show in the middle and trump the Warriors again.

Our Prediction: Barbados Tridents are expected to win this match.

Match Details

The 6th match of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 between Trinbago Knight Riders and Jamaica Tallawahs will be played at The Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad. The match starts at 5:30 PM local time (9:30 PM UTC) (3:00 AM IST – 21st August).

It will be live on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 2, Star Sports 1 Hindi, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports 2 HD, and Star Sports 1 HD Hindi. The match can be streamed live on Hotstar and Fan Code.

Preview

The sixth match of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will see the Trinbago Knight Riders facing the Jamaica Tallawahs. Some of the top T20 superstars will be in action for this match. The Knight Riders breezed past the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the tournament opener while the Jamaica Tallawahs also won their opening match of the competition.

No wonder the TKR side looks strong at least on paper. But they shouldn’t take things for granted and look to play their best cricket during the course of 40 overs. The Tallawahs failed to qualify for the playoffs last year and they will be looking to put their best foot forward this season to win the coveted trophy.

Pitch Report

The three completed matches of the tournament have been played on the same pitch as of now and it is getting slower and slower with every passing day. Expect the spinners to rule the roost again.

Average first innings score: 146 (Unaffected matches in the tournament)

Record of the chasing teams: Won – 1; Lost – 2

Probable Playing XIs

Trinbago Knight Riders

Lendl Simmons, Sunil Narine, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert (wk), Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard (C), Dwayne Bravo, Sikandar Raza, Jayden Seales, Fawad Ahmed, Ali Khan.

Bench: Amir Jangoo, Tion Webster, Akeal Hosein, Khary Pierre, Anderson Phillip, Pravin Tambe.

Jamaica Tallawahs

Glenn Phillips (wk), Chadwick Walton, Nicholas Kirton, Rovman Powell (C), Andre Russell, Asif Ali, Carlos Brathwaite, Oshane Thomas, Veerasammy Permaul, Sandeep Lamichhane, Mujeeb Ur Rahman

Bench: Preston McSween, Jermaine Blackwood, Nkrumah Bonner, Ryan Persaud, Ramaal Lewis, Fidel Edwards

Expected Top Players

Sunil Narine

Narine was the player of the match in the tournament opener against the Warriors and he will be key once again for the Knight Riders. He scored 50 off just 28 balls opening the innings and returned with the figures of 2/19 in his four overs.

Colin Munro

Colin Munro looked in good touch during his 7-ball stay in the middle in the first outing. He scored 17 runs with a four and a couple of sixes and will be keen on building on the start this time around.

Andre Russell

Andre Russell had a rare off day with the bat striking under 100. He scored only 16 off 17 deliveries and picked a wicket with the ball. The all-rounder has set high standards for himself and an improved performance in expected of him.

Our Betting Tips

It is the battle between the T20 superstars in Trinidad on Thursday. But the five spinners in action from both the sides are likely to hog all the limelight. The trio of Lamichhane, Permaul and Mujeeb might strangle the star studded TKR batting line-up.

Our Prediction: Jamaica Tallawahs are expected to win the match.

Match Details

The 4th game of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 will be played between Guyana Amazon Warriors and St Kitts & Nevis Patriots at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba, Trinidad. The match starts at 5:30 PM local time (9:30 PM GMT) (3:00 AM IST – 20th August). This series will be live on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 1 HD in India. Live streaming is available on Fan Code.

Preview

The caravan of the CPL 2020 moves on as the fourth match is set to be played between the runners up of the 2019 season, Guyana Amazon Warriors and the St Kitts Nevis and Patriots. The Warriors lost a close game to the Trinbago Knight Riders in the tournament opener. They couldn’t defend a 145 in a rain-affected game. Their opponents, St Kitts Nevis and Patriots also lost their opening game against the defending champions Barbados Tridents after they failed to chase down 154 falling short of the target by seven runs.

Weather Report

The pitch at the Brian Lara Cricket Stadium has turned out to be slow as expected. When it comes to the second match of the day, the spinners come into the game even more and it becomes tough for the batsmen to play their shots.

Average first innings score: 153 (Unaffected matches in 2020)

Record of the chasing teams: Won – 0, Lost – 1

Probable Playing XIs

Guyana Amazon Warriors:

Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Ross Taylor, Sherfane Rutherford, Keemo Paul, Chris Green (C), Romario Shepherd, Naveen-ul-Haq, Imran Tahir.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots:

Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Joshua Da Silva, Ben Dunk, Jahman Hamiton, Rayad Emrit (C), Sohail Tanvir, Ish Sodhi, Sheldon Cottrell, Alzarri Joseph.

Expected Top Players

Shimron Hetmyer

Shimron Hetmyer, playing his first proper game after the pandemic-enforced break, slammed 63 runs against the Trinbago Knight Riders. He looked in good touch from the word go and the onus will be on him again to propel the Warriors.

Chris Lynn

Chris Lynn couldn’t get going after a decent start in the previous game. But he is dangerous batsman and on his day, can literally blow away any opposition bowling line-up.

Imran Tahir

Imran Tahir is a key bowler when the pitch is on the slower side. He will bamboozle the batsmen with his variations and he did the same in the first game as well. However, the leggie will be aware of not being expensive this time around.

Our Betting Tips

Guyana Amazon Warriors have dominated the St Kitts Nevis and Patriots in terms of head to head battles so far. The team seems to have all bases covered and given their recent record in the tournament, the Warriors are expected to win the battle against the Patriots.

Our Prediction: Guyana Amazon Warriors are expected to win this match.

Match Details

The first match between Trinbago Knight Riders and Guyana Amazon Warriors will be played at The Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad. This match starts at 10:00 AM local time (07:30 PM IST) (02:00 PM GMT). It will be live on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 2, Star Sports 1 Hindi, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports 2 HD, and Star Sports 1 HD Hindi. The match can be streamed live on Hotstar and Fan Code.

Preview

The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) is all set to get underway on Tuesday, August 18 behind the closed doors amid the pandemic. The opening match will be played between two blockbuster sides, Trinbago Knight Riders and the Guyana Amazon Warriors. Both the teams have highest win percentage in the history of the CPL with the TKR side winning the title as many as three times.

However, the Warriors have been unfortunate to not have won the coveted trophy even once despite making it to the final many times. They will be eager to start the tournament on a high. As far as the head to head battles are concerned, out of the 19 meetings between the two teams, the Knight Riders have won 10 matches while the Warriors have trumped the opposition on 9 occasions.

Pitch Report

The surface at the Brian Lara Stadium has helped the spinners generally and chasing has proved to be tough at the venue. Expect a pitch to slow down as the game and the tournament progresses as most of the matches are set to be played at the same venue.

Average first innings score: 166 (2 T20 matches played at the venue last year)

Probable Playing XIs:

Trinbago Knight Riders

Lendl Simmons, Sunil Narine, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert (wk), Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard (C), Dwayne Bravo, Fawad Ahmed, Khary Pierre, Ali Khan, Anderson Phillip.

Guyana Amazon Warriors

Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Ross Taylor, Sherfane Rutherford, Keemo Paul, Chris Green (C), Romario Shepherd, Naveen-ul-Haq, Imran Tahir.

Expected Top Players

Brandon King

Brandon King had a great 2019 CPL season where he was the top run-getter of the tournament. He had amassed 492 runs with the best score of 132* and the Warriors will be hopeful of a similar show from him this time around.

Imran Tahir

The surface at the Brian Lara Stadium is a heaven for the bowlers like Imran Tahir. He would love to bowl more in this tournament having scalped 32 wickets in only 21 matches in CPL so far.

Sunil Narine

Sunil Narine, more often than not, plays his best best cricket in the CPL itself. His runs at the top of the order are literally bonus for the Knight Riders and then he makes the batsmen dance on his tunes with the ball. Expect him to be one of the top players of this match.

Our Betting Tips

The head to head battles are in favour of the Trinbago Knight Riders after 19 matches. But it is tough to predict an outright winner between the two teams. However, going by the records, the Knight Riders tend to start the tournament on a high and we expect them to come up trumps in this game.

Our Prediction: Trinbago Knight Riders are expected to win the match.

Preview:

The defending champions Barbados Tridents will be stepping on to the field for the last time in 2020 season as they will be up against Jamaica Tallawahs on Saturday. The Tridents have been terrible of last having not even aggregated 100 runs in any of their last three matches. They will be hoping to finish the tournament on a high with a victory over Tallawahs. The Jamaican team is finding out the chance of finishing higher in the points table and Saturday’s match will be crucial for that.

Pitch Report:

The pitch at the Brian Lara Stadium is expected to provide spin-friendly surfaces, especially during the afternoon matches as no work will be done to the morning track.

Average first innings score: 130 (Last three matches played here in this tournament)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 3, Lost – 2, Tied – 0

Probable Playing XIs:

Jamaica Tallawahs:

Glenn Phillips (wk), Nkrumah Bonner, Jermaine Blackwood, Asif Ali, Rovman Powell (c), Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Veerasammy Permaul, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Sandeep Lamichhane, Fidel Edwards

Bench: Chadwick Walton, Ramaal Lewis, Preston McSween, Oshane Thomas, Nicholas Kirton, Ryan Persaud

Bench: Corey Anderson, Keon Harding, Joshua Bishop, Shayan Jahangir, Shai Hope, Jonathan Carter

Expected Top Players:

Mujeeb Ur Rahman

Mujeeb Ur Rahman is currently second-highest wicket-taker of the tournament having taken 13 wickets from 8 matches this season. He has given away runs at an economy rate of only 4.63 runs.

Andre Russell

Andre Russell didn’t start the tournament on a great note but has picked up in his performances with the bat. He has scored some quick-fire fifties off late but wasn’t able to take his team through.

Rashid Khan

Rashid Khan has made major contributions with the ball for his team having taken ten wickets nine matches. He is expected to come up with some good performances with the bat if given a chance up the order more often.

Our Betting Tips:

Given the way Barbados Tridents have batted in the last three matches, it will be tough to see them getting away against the Jamaica Tallawahs.

Probable Winners:

Jamaica Tallawahs are expected to win this match.

Caribbean Premier League 2020: Match 27, Trinbago Knight Riders vs St Lucia Zouks – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details

The 27th match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 will be played between the Trinbago Knight Riders and the St Lucia Zouks at the Brian Lara Stadium, Trinidad on 5th September 2020. The match can be viewed live on the Star Sports Network at 7:30 p.m. IST.

Preview

The Trinbago Knight Riders seem to be unstoppable even while playing their bench strengths. The Knight Riders confirmed their place in the playoffs a long time ago and have been testing their back-ups by resting regular players including their skipper Kieron Pollard. However, success doesn’t seem to go out of TKR’s direction who have now extended their winning streak to 8. They will now face St Lucia Zouks on Saturday who is looking for a win and the No.2 place in the points table.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The track at the Brian Lara Stadium has favoured the spinners quite a lot but at the same time, the batsmen found conditions easy due to the dryness.

Average first innings score: 130 (Based on last 5 completed games)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 3, Lost – 2

Probable Playing XIs:

Trinbago Knight Riders:

Lendl Simmons, Amir Jangoo, Collin Munro, Darren-Bravo, Tim Seifert, Sikandar Raza, Dwayne Bravo, Akeal Hosein, Kharry Pierre, Pravin Tambe, Anderson Phillip

Bench: Jayden Seales, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Fawad Ahmed

St Lucia Zouks: Rahkeem Cornwall, Andre Fletcher, Leniko Boucher, Kavem Hodge, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Darren Sammy, Javelle Glen, Scott Kuggeleijn, Kesrick Williams, Chemar Holder

Bench: Roston Chase, Saad Bin Zafar, Kimani Melius, Zahir Khan

Expected Top Players:

Collin Munro

Colin Munro has been solid with the bat this season and his record at the Brian Lara Stadium is easily the best for any player. Across 11 CPL innings at the venue, Munro scored four fifties and average over 55.

Roston Chase

Roston Chase has been quite good with both bat and ball in this season. He has scored 170 runs from the 6 innings he batted and claimed 6 wickets with the ball at an economy rate of 4.6.

Scott Kruggeleijn

Scott Kruggeleijn has been the best bowler for St Lucia Zouks having claimed 12 wickets thus far. His economy rate of 7.82 isn’t too great in a low-scoring tournament but has done well in terms of wicket-taking.

Our Betting Tips:

Trinbago Knight Riders might continue making experiments with their playing XI. It decreases the possibility of their winning slightly.

Probable Winners:

Trinbago Knight Riders are expected to bag this one.

The TKR team will be facing off against the Jamaica Tallawahs on Tuesday at the Brian Lara Stadium. The Tallawahs have lost three and won three matches out of the 6 games they have played so far.

Glenn Phillips

Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman

Mujeeb Ur Rahman has been running through the opposition’s batting line-ups in this CPL as he claimed a total of 13 wickets from seven matches.

Our Betting Tips:

Sunil Narine, Dwayne Bravo and Andre Russell didn’t feature during the last weekend. All the three players have been decent in their roles during the competition and could return on Tuesday after a daybreak.

Probable Winners:

Trinbago Knight Riders are expected to win this match.

Caribbean Premier League 2020: Match 20, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots vs Guyana Amazon Warriors – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details:

The 20th game of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 will be played between St Kitts & Nevis Patriots and Guyana Amazon Warriors at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad.

The match starts at 2:15 PM local time (6:15 PM GMT) (11:45 PM IST)

This series will be live on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 1 HD in India. Live streaming is available on Fan Code.

Preview:

Guyana Amazon Warriors and St Kitts & Nevis Patriots will lock horns on Sunday in the bottom of the table clash at the Queen’s Park Oval. Patriots are currently placed last in the points table with just one win from six matches they played. Guyana, on the other hand, is ranked at No.5 having won only two matches. The Amazon Warriors are currently on a losing streak of three matches which began following their back to back wins in the first week.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The Queen’s Park Oval has been a nightmare to the batsmen in this CPL thus far as none of the previous matches witnessed a total in excess of 150. Only once in those five matches, a team successfully chased a target of 120+.

Average first innings score: 133 (Last five matches)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 3, Lost – 2

Probable Playing XIs:

Guyana Amazon Warriors:

Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Ross Taylor, Sherfane Rutherford, Keemo Paul, Chris Green (C), Naveen-ul-Haq, Imran Tahir, Ashmead Nedd.

Bench – Odean Smith, Anthony Bramble, Romario Shepherd, Kevin Sinclair, Jessy Singh, Kissoodath Magram.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots:

Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Nicholas Kelly, Ben Dunk, Kieran Powell, Rayad Emrit (C), Jon-Russ Jaggesar, Ish Sodhi, Sheldon Cottrell, Imran Khan.

Bench – Joshua Da Silva, Jahman Hamiton, Sohail Tanvir, Alzarri Joseph, Colin Archibald, Dominic Drakes.

Expected Top Performers:

Imran Tahir

Imran Tahir picked up as many as 27 wickets from his last 15 CPL matches and picked at least one wicket in 14 games.

Evin Lewis

Evin Lewis amassed a total of 182 runs in six matches this tournament. Evin’s 15 sixes thus far are the joint-most by any player in the tournament.

Ben Dunk

Ben Dunk has scored 125 runs at an average of 25. He might also be used as a spin-bowling option considering the Queen’s Park Oval track.

Our Betting Tips:

Evin Lewis suffered a groin injury during the Saturday’s match. It puts him doubtful for the Sunday’s match. If he doesn’t play, the already troubled SKN Patriots will have not chance against Guyana Amazon Warriors.

Probable Winners:

Guyana Amazon Warriors are likely to thump St Kitts and Nevis Patriots by a big margin on Sunday.

Caribbean Premier League 2020: Match 19, Barbados Tridents vs St Lucia Zouks – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details:

The 19th match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 is all set to be played between the Barbados Tridents and the St Lucia Zouks at the Queen’s Park Oval.

The match is scheduled to start at 10:00 AM Local Time (07:30 PM IST) (02:00 PM UTC). It will be live on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 2, Star Sports 1 Hindi, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports 2 HD, and Star Sports 1 HD Hindi. The match can be streamed live on FanCode.

Preview

The 19th match of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will see the second-placed St Lucia Zouks face the defending champions Barbados Tridents. Despite winning the title last year, the Tridents, led by Jason Holder, are not playing like a champion team. They are at the fourth place at the moment having won only a couple of matches out of the six they have played.

They are coming into this match after losing to the Trinbago Knight Riders the other day in a thrilling encounter. The Zouks, on the other hand, took a day off and will be on the field fresh and raring to go. They have so far played six matches and have won four. They certainly start as the favourites but the Tridents will be keen to end their sojourn at the Queen’s Park Oval with a win.

Pitch Condition/Report

The surface at the Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad has been on the slower side with the teams struggling to chase anything close to 150. Rather on some occasions, even the chases of 120 has gone until the last over and nothing is likely to change on the last day of the tournament at the venue.

Average first innings score: 137 (Last 7 matches played at the venue)

Record of the chasing teams: Won – 4; Lost – 3

Probable Playing XIs

Barbados Tridents

Johnson Charles, Shai Hope (wk), Kyle Mayers, Corey Anderson, Jason Holder (c), Ashley Nurse, Rashid Khan, Raymon Reifer, Nyeem Young, Mitchell Santner, Hayden Walsh

Bench: Joshua Bishop, Shayan Jahangir, Keon Harding, Shamarh Brooks, Justin Greaves, Jonathan Carter.

St Lucia Zouks

Andre Fletcher (wk), Rahkeem Cornwall, Mark Deyal, Roston Chase, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Daren Sammy (c), Javelle Glenn, Scott Kuggeleijn, Kesrick Williams, Zahir Khan

Bench: Chemar Holder, Saad Bin Zafar, Kavem Hodge, Obed McCoy, Kimani Melius, Leniko Boucher

Expected Top Players

Kyle Mayers

Kyle Mayers has been in amazing form, especially with the bat, for the Barbados Tridents. He would’ve been happier only if his form had won his team more matches. He has so far scored 203 runs in six outings at an average of 33.83 and strike-rate of 127.67. He has also picked two wickets with the ball.

Mohammad Nabi

To have a player like Mohammad Nabi in the T20 team is literally a luxury. The Zouks are enjoying the same at the moment thanks to the Afghanistan all-rounder. Nabi has so far scored 120 runs in five innings at a strike-rate of 144.58 and has also scalped nine wickets at an average of 10.67 while also being extremely economical.

Jason Holder

Jason Holder is another player like Nabi who contributes his best in both the departments of the game. Although his captaincy has come under the radar this season, Holder’s performances have been brilliant. He has mustered 119 runs batting in top five for the Tridents and has sent back six batsmen to the pavilion.

Our Betting Tips

St Lucia Zouks have been playing some excellent cricket this season and one feels the Tridents have been too inconsistent in their trade so far. The Zouks also have more match-winners and in-form players in their side.

Our Prediction: St Lucia Zouks are expected to win this match.

Caribbean Premier League 2020: Match 18, Jamaica Tallawahs vs St Kitts and Nevis Patriots – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details:

The 18th match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 is all set to be played between the Jamaica Tallawahs and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots at the Queen’s Park Oval.

The match is scheduled to start at 02:15 PM Local Time (11:45 PM IST) (06:15 PM UTC).

It will be live on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 2, Star Sports 1 Hindi, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports 2 HD, and Star Sports 1 HD Hindi. The match can be streamed live on FanCode.

Preview:

The battle of the bottom will be seen during the Saturday’s afternoon when Jamaica Tallawahs takes on St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The Tallawahs have won only two of their five matches and are placed at No.5 while the Patriots are at the bottom with only one win from the five they have been a part of. The winner of this match will be improving their chances of getting into the top four. So far, both the teams are the same in terms of their consistency with the bat.

Pitch Report:

The pitch at the Queen’s Park Oval will be quite dry and less time gap between the two matches could well work against the batsmen making it an unplayable one.

Average first innings score: 118 (Last 5 matches played here)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 4, Lost – 1, Tied – 0

Probable Playing XIs:

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots:

Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Jahmar Hamilton, Ben Dunk, Sohail Tanvir, Nick Kelly, Rayad Emrit (c), Imran Khan, Jon-Russ Jaggesar, Alzarri Joseph

Bench: Nicholas Kirton, Ryan Persaud, Oshane Thomas, Preston McSween, Ramaal Lewis, Andre Russell/Nkrumah Bonner

Expected Top Players:

Mujeeb ur Rahman

Mujeeb Ur Rahman is in top form with the ball in this season with 12 wickets from five matches while maintaining an economy rate of 4.05 runs per over.

Rayad Emrit

Rayad Emrit has taken 7 wickets in 5 matches in this tournament at an economy of 5.44 alongside scoring 43 runs with the bat.

Evin Lewis

Evin Lewis made quick-fire starts but failed to convert them often. The only match Patriots won witnessed him smashing 89. In the 5 matches, Lewis has scored 161 runs at a strike rate of 135.

Our Betting Tips:

The spin attack of Jamaica Tallawahs should be enough to see them cruise to a win against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, especially who struggle against spinners.

Probable Winners:

Jamaica Tallawahs are expected to win this match and also add two more points to their tally.

Trinbago Knight Riders have been quite dominant in the tournament and to defeat them in current circumstances, the opposition has to have a couple of off-spinners. The Barbados Tridents has only one off-spinner in the form of Ashley Nurse who isn’t a solution.

Probable Winners:

Trinbago Knight Riders are expected to win this match.

Preview:

Barbados Tridents and Jamaica Tallawahs will lock horns in Port of Spain in the match to be played on Wednesday afternoon. The defending champions Barbados Tridents started the tournament with a close win but suffered three consecutive defeats. Jason Holder’s tactics during these three games have been questionable. On the other hand, the Jamaica Tallawahs have won two of the four matches they played. They were victorious in their first and the recent most matches but losing in the 2nd and 3rd games by a big margin.

Pitch Report:

Water is being sprinkled before the evening match to keep the pitch packed and flat. However, on Tuesday, the trick did not make a difference and spinners enjoyed assistance.

Average first innings score: 130 (This tournament)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 2; Lost – 0

Probable Playing XIs:

Jamaica Tallawahs:

Rovman Powell, Asif Ali, Nkrumah Bonner, Carlos Brathwaite, Fidel Edwards, Sandeep Lamichhane, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Glenn Phillips, Andre Russell, Oshane Thomas, Chadwick Walton

Bench: Samarah Brooks, Shayan Jahangir, Justin Greaves, Nyeem Young, Keon Harding, Joshua Bishop

Expected Top Players:

Mujeeb-ur-Rahman has been in impressive touch with the ball in this tournament. He has nine wickets to his name in four matches with three apiece coming in last two matches.

Andre Russell has slowly picked up some good form with the bat. He has scored a total of 116 runs in the 4 matches he has played at an average over 50 and has also taken 4 wickets with the ball too.

Rashid Khan is contributing well as a bowler in this season for his team. He has taken 4 wickets in three matches.  And, he showed his capabilities with the bat when he scored 26 runs in an inning, at a strike rate of 130.00.

Our Betting Tips:

Jamaica Tallawahs spinners have been unplayable at times in the tournament. If Mujeeb comes up against the left-handers of Barbados, the Tridents will be packing up for a low total.

Probable Winners:

Jamaica Tallawahs are expected to win this match.

The 12th match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 is all set to be played between the Guyana Amazon Warriors and the Jamaica Tallawahs at the Queen’s Park Oval Ground. The match is scheduled to start at 05:30 PM Local Time (09:30 PM GMT) (03:00 AM IST on Aug 26). It will be live on Star Sports and can be streamed live on FanCode.

Preview

The 12th match of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will culminate the first day of the tournament at the Queen’s Park Oval. The Guyana Amazon Warriors and Jamaica Tallawahs will face each other who are stuck in the middle of the points table at the third and fourth place respectively. The Warriors lost to St Lucia Zouks in their previous outing and have won two out of four matches so far.

The Jamaica Tallawahs have played a game less than the Warriors but have won only a solitary match so far. Interestingly, their previous loss came at the hands of the Warriors itself and they came second against the Trinbago Knight Riders earlier. However, they had begun their campaign on a winning note and will be keen to return to the winning ways soon.

Pitch Report

The surface at the Queen’s Park Oval might not be a good one for the batsmen. Bowlers, especially spinners, are likely to have a say once again. However, with this being the first match of the season, we might even witness a lot of runs being scored.

Average first innings score: 131 (Last three T20s played at the venue)

Record of the chasing teams: Won – 2; Lost – 1

Probable Playing XIs

Guyana Amazon Warriors:

Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Ross Taylor, Nicholas Pooran, Sherfane Rutherford, Keemo Paul, Chris Green, Odean Smith, Ashmead Nedd, Imran Tahir.

Jamaica Tallawahs:

Chadwick Walton, Glenn Phillips, Nkrumah Bonner/Nicholas Kirton, Rovman Powell, Asif Ali, Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Oshane Thomas, Sandeep Lamichhane, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Fidel Edwards.

Expected Top Players

Imran Tahir

Imran Tahir is the second highest wicket-taker of the tournament so far. In the four matches so far, the leg-spinner has picked eight wickets at an impeccable average of 13.25. Tahir has conceded only 106 runs in 16 overs he has delivered in the competition.

Glenn Phillips

Glenn Phillips has opened the innings so far in CPL 2020 and has amassed 102 runs in three outings at an average of 34. His strike-rate of 130.77 proves that he is being watchful and is determined on playing a big knock for his team.

Nicholas Pooran

Pooran finally lived up to his reputation in the last game. Though his half-century ended up being in a losing cause, the Warriors management will be happy that one of the best batsmen has found his form at the right time.

Our Betting Tips

Jamaica Tallawahs lost to the Warriors in their last encounter and have got a quick chance to turn things around against them. With Andre Russell returning to form and the spin duo of Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Sandeep Lamichhane doing well, expect them to down the Warriors in this game.

Our Prediction: Jamaica Tallawahs are expected to win this game.

Caribbean Premier League 2020: Match 11, Barbados Tridents vs St Kitts and Nevis Patriots – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details:

The 11th match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 will be played between the Barbados Tridents and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots at the Queen’s Park Oval. The match is scheduled to start at 10:00 AM Local Time (07:30 PM IST) (02:00 PM GMT). The match will be live on Star Sports and can be streamed live on FanCode.

Preview

The 11th match of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will see the defending champions Barbados Tridents lock horns against the struggling St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The caravan of the tournament also moves to Queen’s Park Oval and it will be interesting to see if the fortunes of either teams change. Both the sides are struggling at the moment and this is a crucial game for them.

The Patriots are yet to get off the mark in the CPL 2020 having lost all three matches they played. The Jason Holder-led Tridents started off well beating the Patriots itself but have lost their next two matches since then. This presents them with a perfect opportunity to get back to the winning ways and bring their title defence back on track.

Pitch Report

The pitch at the Queen’s Park Oval isn’t a featherbed for the batsmen either. It has helped the bowlers, especially the spinners if the stats in the last year’s CPL are considered. Also, a better pitch can also be on offer given the fact that this is the first match of the season.

Average first innings score: 131 (Last three T20s played at the venue)

Record of the chasing teams: Won – 2; Lost – 1

Probable Playing XIs

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots:

Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis, Joshua Da Silva/Nicholas Kelly, Denesh Ramdin, Ben Dunk, Kieran Powell, Rayad Emrit, Jon-Russ Jaggesar, Sohail Tanvir, Ish Sodhi, Sheldon Cottrell.

Barbados Tridents

Johnson Charles, Shai Hope, Corey Anderson, Kyle Mayers, Jason Holder, Jonathan Carter, Raymon Reifer, Mitchell Santner, Ashley Nurse, Rashid Khan, Hayden Walsh Jr.

Expected Top Players

Rayad Emrit

The Patriors skipper has bowled his heart out for his team. He is leading from the front with the ball and has picked six wickets at an exceptional average of 10.17. He has conceded only 61 runs in 11 overs he has bowled in the tournament so far.

Rashid Khan

Rashid Khan is always a key player thanks to his heroics with the ball. He has so far picked up four wickets in three outings and was economical until the last game. But one bad game doesn’t make him a bad bowler and the leggie will be keen to make amends. He scores crucial runs down the order too.

Jason Holder

Jason Holder has surprisingly been the highest run-scorer for the Tridents so far. In three matches, he has mustered 99 runs at a strike-rate of close to 187. If he starts picking wickets with the ball, the team will benefit a lot.

Our Betting Tips

The Patriots have a brittle middle-order and the teams are targetting them as expected. The Tridents, despite losses in the last two matches, will be feeling confident of overcoming the opposition thanks to their win over them earlier in the season.

Our Prediction: Barbados Tridents are expected to win the match.

Caribbean Premier League 2020: Match 10, Guyana Amazon Warriors vs St Lucia Zouks – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details

The 10th match of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 between Guyana Amazon Warriors and St Lucia Zouks will be played at The Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad. This match starts at 11:45 PM IST (2:15 PM local time). It can be streamed live on Fancode.

Preview

The 10th match of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League will see the Guyana Amazon Warriors and St Lucia Zouks locking horns. Both the teams won their respective matches the other day. The Warriors, as expected, are topping the charts again having won all their three matches so far. The Zouks, on the other hand, are the third place in the points table with two wins in four matches.

In the erstwhile encounter, the Warriors successfully the lowest total of 118 against the Jamaica Tallawahs to win by 14 runs. The Zouks were in a much better position compared to them as they easily defended 172 with the opposition reaching 162 only.

Pitch Report

The surface at the Brian Lara Cricket Stadium is already showing its true colours with so many matches being played at the venue. Nevertheless, these are the last set of matches for this week here as the action shifts to Queen’s Park Oval. Expect another low-scoring affair with the spinners dominating the proceedings.

Average first innings score: 144 (Unaffected matches in the tournament)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 3; Lost – 3

Probable Playing XIs

Guyana Amazon Warriors

Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Ross Taylor, Nicholas Pooran (WK), Sherfane Rutherford, Keemo Paul, Chris Green (C), Naveen-ul-Haq, Ashmead Nedd, Imran Tahir.

St Lucia Zouks

Andre Fletcher (WK), Rahkeem Cornwall, Mark Deyal, Najibullah Zadran, Roston Chase, Mohammad Nabi, Darren Sammy (C), Saad Bin Zafar, Scott Kuggeleijn, Kesrick Williams, Obed McCoy

Expected Top Players

Mohammad Nabi

Mohammad Nabi, as expected, has performed to his potential so far in the tournament. He has so far mustered 63 runs in three outings at an SR of 170.27 and has also bowled economical 10 overs while also picking two wickets.

Chris Green

The Guyana Amazon Warriors skipper Chris Green has made use of the slow surface perfectly. He returned with the figures of 2/10 in his three overs against the Tallawahs and will once again thrive as the surface will be even slower this time around.

Roston Chase

Roston Chase has turned out to be a surprise performer of this tournament thus far. He has so far picked up five wickets after bowling just six overs. Chase, regarded as Test player predominantly, has also mustered important runs for his team in the middle-order.

Our Betting Tips

Guyana Amazon Warriors thrive on consistency in the CPL despite the fact that they haven’t won the title even once. They have better and more spinners compared to their opponents.

Our Prediction: Guyana Amazon Warriors are expected to win this match.

On Sunday, the TKR team aim to complete a hat-trick as they will be up against the Barbados Tridents in their 3rd match. The defending champions, Tridents, began with a close win against the SKN Patriots but lost against the St Lucia Zouks during a rain-affected match. Both the teams have long batting units which could help in keeping the scorecard ticking until the last ball.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The two matches on Saturday have been the worst in terms of producing totals as in the afternoon, the Guyana team successfully defended their total of 118.

Average first innings score: 144 (Unaffected matches in the tournament)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 3, Lost – 3

Probable Playing XIs:

Trinbago Knight Riders

Lendl Simmons, Sunil Narine, Colin Munro, Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard (C), Tim Seifert (wk), Dwayne Bravo, Khary Pierre, Jayden Seales, Fawad Ahmed, Ali Khan.

Bench: Amir Jangoo, Tion Webster, Akeal Hosein, Sikandar Raza, Anderson Phillip, Pravin Tambe.

Bench: Shamarh Brooks, Justin Greaves, Joshua Bishop, Nyeem Young, Shayan Jahangir, Keon Harding.

Top Players:

Sunil Narine

Sunil Narine has scored 103 runs in two matches with help of two fifties and also claimed 3 wickets at an economy rate well under five.

Rashid Khan

Rashid Khan has done well in the tournament thus far with four wickets to his name but has been touch expensive than his usual standards.

Jason Holder

Jason Holder is yet to open his tally with the ball but has done well with the bat. He has aggregated 65 runs in two games at a strike rate of 191.

Betting Tips:

The Trinbago Knight Riders seemed to have covered all basis, especially in the batting department. Hence, on slow tracks in this CPL, we could see them dominate most of the opponents comfortably.

Probable Winners:

Trinbago Knight Riders are expected to win this match.

Caribbean Premier League 2020: Match 8, Guyana Amazon Warriors vs Jamaica Tallawahs – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details

The 8th match of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 between Guyana Amazon Warriors and Jamaica Tallawahs will be played at The Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad.

The match starts at 02:15 PM local time (6:15 PM UTC) (11:45 PM IST).

It will be live on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 2, Star Sports 1 Hindi, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports 2 HD, and Star Sports 1 HD Hindi. The match can be streamed live on Hotstar and Fan Code.

Preview

Guyana Amazon Warriors and Jamaica Tallawahs will lock horns on Saturday afternoon. Both the teams won one game each and suffered a defeat in the hands of the Trinbago Knight Riders. Shimron Hetmyer’s twin fifties have boosted Guayan’s spirits with the bat on slow tracks. On the other hand, the Tallawahs await for a destructive inning from Andre Russell who has registered his slowest innings in CPL and followed with his slowest inning across all the Twenty20 cricket.

Pitch Condition/Report:

There is a possibility of a new track used for Saturday’s match. If so, we might see the team batting first get at least 160.

Average first innings score: 141 (Last six games in the tournament)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 5, Lost – 1, Tied – 0

Probable Playing XIs:

Guyana Amazon Warriors:

Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Ross Taylor, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Sherfane Rutherford, Keemo Paul, Chris Green (C), Romario Shepherd, Naveen-ul-Haq, Imran Tahir.

Bench: Odean Smith, Anthony Bramble, Kevin Sinclair, Jessy Singh, Ashmead Nedd, Kissoodath Magram.

Jamaica Tallawahs:

Chadwick Walton, Glenn Phillips (wk), Nicholas Kirton, Rovman Powell (C), Asif Ali, Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Ramaal Lewis/Oshane Thomas, Sandeep Lamichhane, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Fidel Edwards.

Bench: Ramaal Lewis/Oshane Thomas, Nkrumah Bonner, Jermaine Blackwood, Preston McSween, Ryan Persaud, Veerasammy Permaul.

Top Picks:

Keemo Paul

Keemo Paul could well be one of the bowlers whom the Jamaica Tallawahs would like to go at. In this process, the pacer could well concede 7-8 runs an over but picks up 2-3 wickets.

Glenn Phillips

Glenn Phillips has scored 102 runs in two matches in this tournament at an average of 51. Phillips seems to be the only batsman in the Jamaica line-up who is strong enough to take on all sorts of bowling comfortably.

Imran Tahir

Imran Tahir has picked up two wickets apiece in the two matches. He could well be one of the big threats towards the Jamaica Tallawahs batters. The Rovman Powell-led team doesn’t have many resources to tackle the wrist-spin from Guyana. This could help Tahir to bag 2-3 wickets regularly.

Betting Tips:

The conditions at the Brian Lara Stadium perfectly suit the slow bowlers and spinners in the Guyana line-up. They could cause trouble to the Jamaica Tallawahs batsmen who have got only one gear. Hence, going by the conditions, we can expect an easy win for the Amazon Warriors.

Probable Winners:

Guyana Amazon Warriors are predicted to win this game.

Caribbean Premier League 2020: Match 7, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots vs St Lucia Zouks – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details

The 7th match of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 will be played between St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and St Lucia Zouks will be played at The Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad.

This match starts at 10:00 AM local time (07:30 PM IST) (02:00 PM UTC).

It will be live on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 2, Star Sports 1 Hindi, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports 2 HD, and Star Sports 1 HD Hindi. The match can be streamed live on Hotstar and Fan Code.

Preview:

St Lucia Zouks registered their first win during a thrilling match against Barbados Tridents where their chase was reduced to five overs. Mohammad Nabi got the better of his countrymate Rashid Khan to complete the chase of 47 runs with five balls to spare. They will now face St Kitts and Nevis Patriots who have lost both their matches thus far. The middle-order of Patriots has failed to step up twice in two matches resulting in the team’s defeats.

Pitch Condition/Report:

Slow bowlers and spinners have dominated the tournament thus far and the same could be seen continue unless the new track is used for Saturday’s matches.

Average first innings score: 141 (Last six games in the tournament)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 5, Lost – 1, Tied – 0

Probable Playing XIs:

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots:

Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Nicholas Kelly, Ben Dunk, Jahman Hamiton, Rayad Emrit (C), Jon-Russ Jaggesar, Dominic Drakes/Sohail Tanvir, Ish Sodhi, Sheldon Cottrell.

Bench: Joshua Da Silva, Dominic Drakes/Sohail Tanvir, Alzarri Joseph, Colin Archibald, Imran Khan.

St Lucia Zouks:

Andre Fletcher (wk), Rahkeem Cornwall, Mark Deyal, Roston Chase, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Daren Sammy (c), Scott Kuggeleijn, Obed McCoy, Kesrick Williams, Saad Bin Zafar.

Bench: Javelle Glen, Kavem Hodge, Chemar Holder, Leniko Boucher, Kimani Melius, Zahir Khan.

Top Players:

Rayad Emrit

Rayad Emrit has claimed five wickets from the two matches. The slow pitches at this venue are likely to benefit his bowling. He could also be seen contributing with the bat if his team crumbles again.

Rahkeem Cornwall

Rahkeem Cornwall is going to have a big role to play against the left-handers of the SKN Patriots. It will be an add on to his attacking knocks at the top during the powerplay overs.

Evin Lewis

Evin Lewis has faced 15+ balls in both matches but has collectively scored only 42 runs. In the previous match, Lewis showed signs of his attacking display which he could replicate on Saturday.

Betting Tips:

The top-order consisting of Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis and Ben Dunk can’t be kept quiet for long. The trio could be seen smashing a few maximums and handing St Kitts and Nevis Patriots their first win of the tournament.

Probable Winners:

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are expected to register their first win in the tournament.

Caribbean Premier League 2020: Match 5, St Lucia Zouks vs Barbados Tridents – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details

The 5th game of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 will be played between St Lucia Zouks and Barbados Tridents at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba, Trinidad.

This match starts 10 AM local (7:30 PM IST) (2 PM GMT). It will be live on Star Sports. Live Streaming will be available on Fancode and Hotstar.

Preview

The third day of the CPL 2020 will get underway with the match between St Lucia Zouks and defending champions Barbados Tridents. The Tridents got a lucky break in their opening match as they got the better of St Kitts and Nevis Patriots by mere six runs. The attacking display with the bat did help the Tridents to get a winning total on a track that was slowing down. The St Lucia Zouks, on the other hand, started off with a defeat in the hands of Jamaica Tallawahs on Wednesday morning.

Pitch Report:

All the four matches thus far in the 2020 CPL have been played on the same strip at the Brian Lara Cricket Stadium. The pitch is becoming slower and slower with every passing match. Unless a change in track before Thursday’s matches, we might not see 150+ totals in the match between Tridents and Zouks.

Average first innings score: 146 (Unaffected matches in the tournament)

Record of the chasing teams: Won – 1; Lost – 2

Probable Playing XIs

Barbados Tridents:

Johnson Charles, Shai Hope (wk), Kyle Mayers, Jonathan Carter, Corey Anderson, Jason Holder (C), Raymon Reifer, Mitchell Santner, Ashley Nurse, Rashid Khan, Hayden Walsh Jr.

Bench: Shamarh Brooks, Justin Greaves, Joshua Bishop, Nyeem Young, Shayan Jahangir, Keon Harding.

St Lucia Zouks:

Rahkeem Cornwall, Andre Fletcher (WK), Najibullah Zadran, Mark Deyal, Mohammad Nabi, Roston Chase, Daren Sammy (C), Kesrick Williams, Scott Kuggeleijn, Zahir Khan, Obed McCoy

Bench: Javelle Glenn, Kimani Melius, Saad Bin Zafar, Kavem Hodge, Chemar Holder, Leniko Boucher

Top Players:

Rashid Khan

Rashid Khan played a crucial role with the bat during the first match with an unbeaten 26* while batting at No.10. He followed it with the figures of 2/27 which helped the Tridents make winning start.

Rahkeem Cornwall

Rahkeem Cornwall was stand out performer with the bat for the St Lucia Zouks in 2019 where he amassed 254 runs in 10 matches. Importantly, those 254 runs came at a strike-rate over 190. On slower wickets of Trinidad, he could well be a reliable spin bowling option as well.

Jason Holder

Jason Holder is going to play an important role for the Barbados Tridents in this tournament, especially with the bat. He could be seen playing some crucial knocks at No.5 position and later complete his four overs spell as well.

Our Betting Tips

The batting line-up of Barbados Tridents looks thin but all the 11 players who featured in the first match have got the ability to score runs at a quick pace. This made the top-order batters getting out slogging in order to get some quick runs. This plan could help Tridents win a majority of matches including the one against St Lucia on Thursday.

Probable Winners

Barbados Tridents are expected to win the match.

Caribbean Premier League 2020: Match 3, Jamaica Tallawahs vs St Lucia Zouks – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details:

The third match of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 will be played between Jamaica Tallawahs and St Lucia Zouks will be played at The Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad.

This match starts at 10:00 AM local time (07:30 PM IST) (02:00 PM GMT). It will be live on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 2, Star Sports 1 Hindi, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports 2 HD, and Star Sports 1 HD Hindi. The match can be streamed live on Hotstar and Fan Code.

Preview:

The St Lucia Zouks and Jamaica Tallawahs will finally step in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 as they clash off on Wednesday morning at the Brian Lara Stadium. These two teams failed to get going during the 2019 edition where they failed to reach the playoffs. Zouks and Tallawahs will be hoping to make a statement straight away this time by putting on some good performances. Both the teams are well assembled with specialist all-rounders for this format.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The pitch at the Brian Lara Stadium will be on the slower side with double paced nature. Acceleration in the middle overs is going to be tough in such conditions and chasing big totals might not be that easy, especially in the day matches.

Average 1st innings score: 153 (Unaffected matches this year)

Record of Chasing Teams: Won – 0, Lost – 1, Tied – 0

Probable Playing XIs:

Jamaica Tallawahs

Glenn Phillips (wk), Chadwick Walton, Jermaine Blackwood, Rovman Powell, Andre Russell, Asif Ali, Carlos Brathwaite, Oshane Thomas, Sandeep Lamichhane, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Fidel Edwards/Ramaal Lewis

Bench: Veerasammy Permaul, Preston McSween, Nicholas Kirton, Nkrumah Bonner, Ryan Persaud, Ramaal Lewis/Fidel Edwards

St Lucia Zouks

Rahkeem Cornwall, Andre Fletcher, Leniko Boucher (wk), Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Kavem Hodge, Daren Sammy (C), Chemar Holder, Kesrick Williams, Zahir Khan Pakteen, Obed McCoy

Bench: Javelle Glenn, Mark Deyal, Kimani Melius, Saad Bin Zafar, Roston Chase

Top Picks:

Andre Russell

The spotlight will obviously be around Andre Russell who has been popular in whichever T20 league he was part of. Unfortunately, his presence in the 2019 CPL was limited due to an injury. He would be hoping to make a strong comeback in this tournament.

Rahkeem Cornwall

Very few players will be as useful as Rahkeem Cornwall in the CPL. The big man opens the batting for St Lucia and manages to get quick runs irrespective of how long he bats. Cornwall’s off-spin is going to be pretty handy on the pitches available in Trinidad.

Zahir Khan

During the day matches, the spin bowlers could be tricky to face and Zahir Khan is someone who could increase the troubles. He was quite decent during the previous edition for the Tallawahs picking up eight wickets.

Our Betting Tips

The St Lucia Zouks Patriots have a pretty good batting line-up to back their strong bowling line-up. However, it seems as if they lack a reliable batsman who can stabilize the inning on double paced wickets seen in Trinidad. Hence, the Jamaica Tallawahs will be favourites to win this match due to their all-round line-up.

Our Prediction: Jamaica Tallawahs are expected to win this fixture.

Caribbean Premier League 2020: Match 2, Barbados Tridents vs St Kitts and Nevis Patriots – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details:

The second match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 between Barbados Tridents and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots will be played at The Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad.

This match starts at 05:30 PM local time – 18 August (03:00 AM IST – 19 August) (09:30 PM UTC – 18th August). It will be live on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 2, Star Sports 1 Hindi, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports 2 HD, and Star Sports 1 HD Hindi. The match can be streamed live on Hotstar and Fan Code.

Preview:

The defending champions Barbados Tridents will be in action on the first day of the tournament as they face St Kitts and Nevis Patriots under lights. Both Tridents and Patriots won exactly five of the ten matches during the previous edition.

However, Tridents’ better NRR helped them to finish second and get a second chance for making it to the final where they ended the dream run of the Guyana Amazon Warriors. The game between Tridents and Patriots will be played at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba on the pitch where Guyana Amazon Warriors and Trinbago Knight Riders face off.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The Brian Lara stadium usually tends to slow down when the ball becomes softer. Hence, teams would be eyeing to make most of the powerplay overs. Once the spinners come in with the older ball, the scoring rates could drop down.

Average 1st innings score: 166 (Two games played at this venue last year)

Record of Chasing Teams: Won – 0, Lost – 2, Tied – 0

Probable Playing XIs:

Barbados Tridents:

Johnson Charles, Shai Hope (wk), Shamarh Brooks, Justin Greaves, Jonathan Carter, Corey Anderson, Jason Holder (C), Raymon Reifer/Mitchell Santner, Ashley Nurse, Rashid Khan, Hayden Walsh Jr.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots:

Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Ben Dunk, Nicholas Kelly, Joshua Da Silva, Rayad Emrit (C), Sohail Tanvir, Ish Sodhi, Sheldon Cottrell, Alzarri Joseph.

Expected Top Players:

Johnson Charles

Johnson Charles was the third-highest run-scorer during the last season with 415 runs. Charles is one of the few players with match practice going into the tournament having played the St Lucia T10 Blast. He even smashed a century in the final there.

Rashid Khan

Rashid Khan has been the top bowler in the T20 format going along. His fast wrist spin bowling could well trouble many batsmen who are coming off a long break. It would be that easy to straight away deal with Rashid’s armoury.

Ben Dunk

Ben Dunk, off late has been a destructive middle-order batsman, especially against the spin bowling. His new playing style has fetched success during the previous edition of CPL and also during Mzansi Super League and PSL T20 during the 2019-20 season.

Our Betting Tips

The SKN Patriots have a dangerous combination at the top in the form of Chris Lynn and Evin Lewis. But when it comes to the middle-order, there is no reliable option other than Ben Dunk. Hence, it could be tough for the Patriots to hold an edge over the Barbados Tridents who have a quality spin bowling line-up headed by Rashid Khan.

Our Prediction: Barbados Tridents are expected to win this game.

CPL 2020: 2nd Semi-final, Guyana Amazon Warriors vs St Lucia Zouks – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details:

Preview

After hard-fought 30 league matches, the CPL 2020 is into its climax with the semi-finals set to take place on Tuesday. The second knockouts match will see the Guyana Amazon Warriors and St Lucia Zouks locking horns against each other. Coming into this crucial game, the St Lucia Zouks romped past the Jamaica Tallawahs who ended up at the fourth position in the points table and will be facing the Trinbago Knight Riders in the first semi-final.

The Guyana Amazon Warriors, on the other hand, haven’t played their best cricket, one would say, and will be keen on finally laying their hands on the trophy after failing constantly in the finals over the years. But for that to happen, they will have to go past the St Lucia Zouks who are performing really well this season under Darren Sammy’s leadership.

Pitch Condition/Report

The pitch is likely to assist the spinners once again and the team with better bowling performance will have an upper hand throughout. The team winning the toss is expected to bowl first.

Average first innings score: 129 (Last five matches played here in this tournament)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 3, Lost – 2, Tied – 0

Probable Playing XIs

Guyana Amazon Warriors:

Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Ross Taylor, Kevin Sinclair, Sherfane Rutherford/Keemo Paul, Chris Green (c), Romario Shepherd, Naveen-ul-Haq, Imran Tahir.

Bench: Odean Smith, Anthony Bramble, Ashmead Nedd, Jasdeep Singh, Kissoondath Magram, Sherfane Rutherford/Keemo Paul.

St Lucia Zouks:

Rahkeem Cornwall, Mark Deyal, Andre Fletcher (wk), Roston Chase, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Daren Sammy (c), Javelle Glen, Kesrick Williams, Zahir Khan, Scott Kuggeleijn.

Bench: Saad Bin Zafar, Kavem Hodge, Chemar Holder, Kimani Melius, Leniko Boucher, Obed McCoy.

Expected Top Players

Shimron Hetmyer

Shimron Hetmyer is the second-highest run-scorer of the CPL 2020. He has scored 267 runs at an average of 38.14 in 10 matches and will be keen on taking his team to the final.

Mohammad Nabi

Mohammad Nabi has been a brilliant T20 freelancer and he proved it again in CPL. He has so far scored 154 runs and picked 11 wickets proving his mettle in both the departments.

Imran Tahir

Imran Tahir is the joint’highest wicket-taker of the tournament with Mujeeb Ur Rahman. He has picked 15 wickets in 10 matches at an exceptional average of 14.33 and has delivered 39 overs so far conceding 234 runs only.

Our Betting Tips

It is 1-1 as far as head to head battles are concerned in this year’s CPL. While the Zouks won the first game of the season by 10 runs, the Warriors hit back winning the turnaround game by seven wickets. The Warriors have the experience of giving their best in the knockout matches, at least in the semi-finals, and they are expected to go past the Zouks in this game as well.

Our Prediction: Guyana Amazon Warriors are expected to win the match.

CPL 2020: Match 29, St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots vs Trinbago Knight Riders: Who will win the match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details

The 29th match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 will be played between the Trinbago Knight Riders and the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots at the Brian Lara Stadium, Trinidad. The match is scheduled to start at 10:00 AM Local Time (07:30 PM IST) (02:00 PM GMT). This series will be live on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 1 HD in India. Live streaming is available on Fan Code.

Preview

The 29th and the penultimate match of the ongoing CPL will see the unbeaten Trinbago Knight Riders locking horns against the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots on Sunday. The TKR side will be chasing history as they will aim to win their 10th match on the trot and stay unbeaten throughout the league stage. The Patriots, on the other hand, have been poor as they have only won one matches out of nine and lost seven and they will be keen on bowing out on a high.

Pitch Condition

The spinners will have fun bowling on this wicket. So many matches have been played at the venue and it has crumbled at times too leading to low-scoring matches. Expect the team winning the toss to bat first.

Average first innings score: 128  (Based on last 5 games)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 2, Lost – 2, NR – 1

Probable Playing XIs

Trinbago Knight Riders:

Lendl Simmons, Tion Webster/Colin Munro, Tim Seifert, Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Sikandar Raza/Sunil Narine, Dwayne Bravo, Akeal Hosein, Kharry Pierre, Fawad Ahmed, Jaydon Seales

Bench: Ish Sodhi, Kieran Powell, Colin Archibald/Sohail Tanvir, Jahmar Hamilton

Expected Top Players

Darren Bravo

Darren Bravo has been in good nick in the tournament. He has scored 239 runs in eight outings at a strike-rate of 113. He will be looking to continue in the same vein ahead of the knockous.

Evin Lewis

Evin Lewis has been the lone and best batter for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The southpaw has scored 223 runs in nine matches at an SR of 130.

Kieron Pollard

Kieron Pollard has found form at the right time for his team. He has mustered 207 runs in seven innings at a strike-rate of 205. He also picked three wickets in the last game which keeps him in good stead ahead of the semi-finals.

Our Betting Tips

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have been extremely poor this season. Though they will be looking to win and end the season on a high, it is tough to go past the TKR side this season it seems. Each player of their team has stood up so far and they are expected to win their 10th match on the trot.

Our Prediction: Trinbago Knight Riders are expected to win the match.

Match Details:

The 26th match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 is all set to be played between the Barbados Tridents and the Guyana Amazon Warriors at the Brian Lara Stadium.

The match is scheduled to start at 05:30 PM Local Time (03:00 AM IST, 04th Sept) (09:30 PM GMT).

Preview:

Only few league matches are left in the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and the 26th match of the tournament will witness the Barbados Tridents and Guyana Amazon Warriors facing each other. This is an extremely important game for the Tridents who are two points behind the fourth placed Jamaica Tallawahs. They will have a key eye on the 25th match as well where the Tallawahs will be taking on the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots.

The Warriors, on the other hand, will be keen on keeping their winning momentum going. They crushed the St Lucia Zouks in their previous outing by seven wickets. With the knockouts approaching fast, the team led by Chris Green will be looking to make the most of their form and make it to the final even this season.

Pitch Condition

It is tough to predict the behaviour of the pitch. The second match of the day has always sprung a surprise this season with the pitch deteriorating a lot. Something of similar sorts is expected in this match as well.

Average first innings score: 150 (Last three matches played here in this tournament)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 1, Lost – 2, Tied – 0

Probable Playing XIs

Guyana Amazon Warriors:

Bench: Corey Anderson, Nyeem Young, Joshua Bishop, Shamarh Brooks, Keon Harding, Shayan Jahangir

Expected Top Players

Jason Holder

The Barbados Tridents skipper Jason Holder hasn’t been on top of his game in the last couple of matches. But he can’t be ignored at any cost thanks to his all-round abilities. He has scored 120 runs and has picked seven wickets so far in the tournament.

Rashid Khan

This man is an absolute genius. Rashid Khan has flummoxed the best batsmen with his variations and he has continued to do so even in the CPL. So far he has picked 10 wickets and will be crucial for the Tridents if they are to make the semi-finals.

Imran Tahir

Imran Tahir is getting younger with every match he is playing. He has ruled the CPL charts well with 12 wickets to his name and is likely to play a decisive role for the Warriors once again.

Our Betting Tips

The Tridents have lost to the Warriors previously in the season. But with the title defence at stake, the Jason Holder-led side is likely to put up their best performance in this game. We are backing the Barbados Tridents to avenge for their earlier loss.

Our Prediction: Barbados Tridents are expected to win this match.

CPL 2020: Match 25, Jamaica Tallawahs vs St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details

Preview

The 25th match of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will see the Jamaica Tallwahs facing the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The Tallawahs will be thanking their stars as this is a crucial game for them and the way, the Patriots have struggled so far, it should be an easy victory for them. Having said that, the St Kitts team won’t be under any pressure and they will look to spoil the party for the other teams after having almost knocked out.

The Tallawahs are at the fourth place with six points to their name at the moment while the Barbados Tridents are only two points behind them. The Tridents will be hoping for the Patriots to put their best foot forward and make things easier for them.

Pitch Condition/Report

The surface at the Brian Lara Cricket Stadium has fared well in the first match of the day. The trend is likely to continue with the scores around 160 possible in this match as well.

Average first innings score: 156 (Last five matches)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 1; Lost – 4

Probable Playing XIs

Jamaica Tallawahs: Chadwick Walton, Glenn Philips, Jermaine Blackwood, Nkrumah Bonner, Rovman Powell, Andre Russell, Asif Ali, Carlos Braithwaite, Sandeep Lamichhane, Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman, Fidel Edwards

Bench: Oshane Thomas, Ramaal Lewis, Preston McSween, Nicholas Kirton

St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots: Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis, Joshua Da Silva, Ben Dunk, Dinesh Ramdin, Rayad Emrit, Dominic Drakes, Alzarri Joseph, Imran Khan, Jon-Russ Jaggesar, Sheldon Cottrell

Bench: Ish Sodhi, Sohail Tanvir, Kieran Powell, Jahmar Hamilton

Expected Top Players

Glenn Phillips

The New Zealand opener has been in great form this season so far. He has scored 248 runs in seven innings at a strike-rate of 128. He is the top run-scorer of the tournament as well.

Evin Lewis

Evin Lewis is the leading run-getter for the Patriots. He has mustered around 202 runs in eight matches and will be keen to gain some form in this match.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman

Mujeeb Ur Rahman has turned out to be the best spinner for his team in the CPL 2020. He has so far scalped 13 wickets in eight outings at an economy of 4.25.

Our Betting Tips

No prizes for guessing. The Patriots have won only one match so far this season and with their top batsmen struggling big time, there seems to be no hope for them to even retaliate. However, nothing can be taken for granted. We are going with the Jamaica Tallawahs to win this match.

Our Prediction: Jamaica Tallawahs are expected to win this game.

CPL 2020: Match 24, St Lucia Zouks vs Guyana Amazon Warriors – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details:

TThe 25th match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 will be played between the Jamaica Tallawahs and St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots at the Brian Lara Stadium, Trinidad on 3rd September 2020. The match can be viewed live on the Star Sports Network at 7:30 PM IST. Live streaming will be available riors at the Brian Lara Stadium. The match is scheduled to start at 05:30 PM Local Time (03:00 AM IST, 03rd Sep) (09:30 PM GMT).

Preview

The match 24 of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 will see the St Lucia Zouks locking horns against the Guyana Amazon Warriors. Both the teams are having contrasting campaigns in the tournament at the moment with the Zouks, under Darren Sammy, doing exceptionally well. But the Warriors have struggled a bit and despite that, they are not out of the semi-finals race.

The knockouts are nearing with every passing day and each game is crucial for the teams. The Zouks are at the second position while their opponents in this match are just below them at the third. The second match of the day has often turned out to be low-scoring and it will be interesting to see how this game pans out.

Pitch Report/Condition

Despite having a break of around a week, the Brian Lara Stadium witnessed another low-scoring where the team batting first posted only 92 runs on the board. If that is the case, yet another low-scoring affair is on the cards.

Average first innings score: 138 (Last two matches played here in this tournament)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 1, Lost – 1, Tied – 0

Probable Playing XIs

Guyana Amazon Warriors:

Brandon King, Kevin Sinclair, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Ross Taylor, Keemo Paul, Chris Green (c), Romario Shepherd, Naveen-ul-Haq, Kissoondath Magram, Imran Tahir

Bench: Ashmead Nedd, Odean Smith, Anthony Bramble, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Sherfane Rutherford, Jasdeep Singh

St Lucia Zouks:

Rahkeem Cornwall, Andre Fletcher (wk), Leniko Boucher, Roston Chase, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Javelle Glenn/Mark Deyal, Daren Sammy (c), Scott Kuggeleijn, Kesrick Williams, Zahir Khan

Bench: Saad Bin Zafar, Kavem Hodge, Obed McCoy, Chemar Holder, Kimani Melius, Javelle Glenn/Mark Deyal

Expected Top Players

Mohammad Nabi

This man is a brilliant all-rounder. Mohammad Nabi is one of the main reasons why the St Lucia Zouks are doing well this season. He has picked up 10 wickets so far in seven matches and has also mustered 94 runs.

Roston Chase

Roston Chase has turned out to be an unlikely hero for the Zouks so far. He has scored 170 runs in seven matches and has also picked four wickets. He will be itching to continue performing the same way.

Nicholas Pooran

Nicholas Pooran has found his form at the right time. He scored a scintillating century recently and has overall amassed 206 runs in seven matches at a strike-rate of 152.59.

Our Prediction

It will all come down to which team’s spinners do well in this game. No team is lacking quality in that aspect and the team batting first has to put up a decent total on the board to defend it easily later on. St Lucia Zouks, at the moment, seem to be the strongest on paper and expect them to register yet another victory.

Our Prediction: St Lucia Zouks are expected to win this match.

The 23rd match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 will be played between Trinbago Knight Riders and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots at the Brian Lara Stadium, Trinidad. The match can be viewed live on the Fan Code at 7:30 PM IST.

Preview

The league stage of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) is coming to an end now and the teams are battling fiercely for a place in the knockouts. The 23rd match of the tournament will see the unbeaten Trinbago Knight Riders facing the struggling the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots who have won only a solitary game so far and lost six matches.

The Knight Riders, on the other hand, have been exceptional winning all of their games so far. Some of the T20 champions are playing in their side and the fact that Sunil Narine and Dwayne Bravo have returned only bolsters their line-up even more.

Pitch Condition/Report

The action returned to Brian Lara stadium the other day after a week’s break and the pitch was a decent one for the first match. Something of similar sorts is expected today as well.

Average first innings score: 161 (Based on last 5 games)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 0, Lost – 5

Probable Playing XIs

Trinbago Knight Riders

Lendl Simmons, Sunil Narine, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert, Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Akeal Hosein, Khary Pierre, Sikandar Raza, Fawad Ahmed

Bench: Sheldon Cottrell, Jahmar Hamilton, Chris Lynn, Colin Archibald

Expected Top Players

Colin Munro

Colin Munro has mustered 198 runs and seems to be slowly gaining his top form as the tournament is approaching the knockouts. He batted well in the previous game as well and will be keen to continue in the same vein.

Kieron Pollard

Kieron Pollard has led the team from the front with the team this season. His recent innings of 72 runs turned a lot of heads and is hitting the ball well. So far he has scored 165 runs in seven matches at a brilliant strike-rate of 206.

Rayad Emrit

There is nothing much to cheer for the Patriots but their skipper has been bowling well. Rayad Emrit has tried his best with the ball picking wickets and being economical but their batsmen haven’t stepped up to the task.

Our Betting Predictions

This is one of more straightforward predictions in this year’s CPL. Going by the current form of the teams, this is the clash between the top and bottom placed teams and there is only one favourite. Trinbago Knight Riders should steamroll the St Kitts franchise once again.

Our Prediction: Trinbago Knight Riders are expected to win the match.

Preview

The league stage of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) is ending soon and the teams are fighting hard to make it to the top four of the points table. The Guyana Amazon Warriors and Barbados Tridents will face-off in the 22nd match of the tournament. Both the sides have played seven matches so far with the Warriors managing to win three of those.

The Tridents, the defending champions, on the other hand, have been extremely poor winning only a couple of matches thus far.. They have dropped two matches which they should have won easily, with the one being the unsuccessful chase of 93 runs against the St Lucia Zouks. The Jason Holder-led side will be keen to finish things off well this time around.

Pitch Condition/Report

The action returns to the Brian Lara Stadium after a week’s break and the pitch is expected to be a good one at least for today. The batsmen should have fun in the middle in that case.

Expected Top Players

Jason Holder

The Barbados Tridents skipper Jason Holder has led from the front for his team. He has so far picked seven wickets in as many matches and has batted superbly as well coming in at four or five.

Imran Tahir

The South African leg-spinner in the second highest wicket-taker of the CPL 2020 so far with 11 wickets to his name. This doesn’t come as a surprise with the way pitches have been and the top performer that Tahir is. Expect him to continue to weave his magic.

Nicholas Pooran

Nicholas Pooran finally found his form in the last game where he scored a century. He has now amassed 206 runs in seven outings and is at the second place in the list of top run-getters.

Our Betting Tips

This is the rematch of last year’s final and it is expected to be a one heck of an encounter. The Tridents have the upper hand having won the title clash. Also, the current situation in the points table demand a better performance from them. Expect the defending champions to improve their show in the middle and trump the Warriors again.

Our Prediction: Barbados Tridents are expected to win this match.

The Knight Riders breezed past the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the tournament opener while the Jamaica Tallawahs also won their opening match of the competition.

The Tallawahs failed to qualify for the playoffs last year and they will be looking to put their best foot forward this season to win the coveted trophy.

Bench: Preston McSween, Jermaine Blackwood, Nkrumah Bonner, Ryan Persaud, Ramaal Lewis, Fidel Edwards

Expected Top Players

Sunil Narine

Narine was the player of the match in the tournament opener against the Warriors and he will be key once again for the Knight Riders. He scored 50 off just 28 balls opening the innings and returned with the figures of 2/19 in his four overs.

Colin Munro

Colin Munro looked in good touch during his 7-ball stay in the middle in the first outing. He scored 17 runs with a four and a couple of sixes and will be keen on building on the start this time around.

Andre Russell

Andre Russell had a rare off day with the bat striking under 100. He scored only 16 off 17 deliveries and picked a wicket with the ball. The all-rounder has set high standards for himself and an improved performance in expected of him.

Our Betting Tips

It is the battle between the T20 superstars in Trinidad on Thursday. But the five spinners in action from both the sides are likely to hog all the limelight. The trio of Lamichhane, Permaul and Mujeeb might strangle the star studded TKR batting line-up.

Our Prediction: Jamaica Tallawahs are expected to win the match.

Preview

The caravan of the CPL 2020 moves on as the fourth match is set to be played between the runners up of the 2019 season, Guyana Amazon Warriors and the St Kitts Nevis and Patriots. The Warriors lost a close game to the Trinbago Knight Riders in the tournament opener. They couldn’t defend a 145 in a rain-affected game. Their opponents, St Kitts Nevis and Patriots also lost their opening game against the defending champions Barbados Tridents after they failed to chase down 154 falling short of the target by seven runs.

Weather Report

The pitch at the Brian Lara Cricket Stadium has turned out to be slow as expected. When it comes to the second match of the day, the spinners come into the game even more and it becomes tough for the batsmen to play their shots.

Average first innings score: 153 (Unaffected matches in 2020)

Record of the chasing teams: Won – 0, Lost – 1

Probable Playing XIs

Guyana Amazon Warriors:

Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Ross Taylor, Sherfane Rutherford, Keemo Paul, Chris Green (C), Romario Shepherd, Naveen-ul-Haq, Imran Tahir.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots:

Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Joshua Da Silva, Ben Dunk, Jahman Hamiton, Rayad Emrit (C), Sohail Tanvir, Ish Sodhi, Sheldon Cottrell, Alzarri Joseph.

Expected Top Players

Shimron Hetmyer

Shimron Hetmyer, playing his first proper game after the pandemic-enforced break, slammed 63 runs against the Trinbago Knight Riders. He looked in good touch from the word go and the onus will be on him again to propel the Warriors.

Chris Lynn

Chris Lynn couldn’t get going after a decent start in the previous game. But he is dangerous batsman and on his day, can literally blow away any opposition bowling line-up.

Imran Tahir

Imran Tahir is a key bowler when the pitch is on the slower side. He will bamboozle the batsmen with his variations and he did the same in the first game as well. However, the leggie will be aware of not being expensive this time around.

Our Betting Tips

Guyana Amazon Warriors have dominated the St Kitts Nevis and Patriots in terms of head to head battles so far. The team seems to have all bases covered and given their recent record in the tournament, the Warriors are expected to win the battle against the Patriots.

Our Prediction: Guyana Amazon Warriors are expected to win this match.

Preview

The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) is all set to get underway on Tuesday, August 18 behind the closed doors amid the pandemic. The opening match will be played between two blockbuster sides, Trinbago Knight Riders and the Guyana Amazon Warriors. Both the teams have highest win percentage in the history of the CPL with the TKR side winning the title as many as three times.

However, the Warriors have been unfortunate to not have won the coveted trophy even once despite making it to the final many times. They will be eager to start the tournament on a high. As far as the head to head battles are concerned, out of the 19 meetings between the two teams, the Knight Riders have won 10 matches while the Warriors have trumped the opposition on 9 occasions.

Pitch Report

The surface at the Brian Lara Stadium has helped the spinners generally and chasing has proved to be tough at the venue. Expect a pitch to slow down as the game and the tournament progresses as most of the matches are set to be played at the same venue.

Average first innings score: 166 (2 T20 matches played at the venue last year)

Probable Playing XIs:

Trinbago Knight Riders

Lendl Simmons, Sunil Narine, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert (wk), Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard (C), Dwayne Bravo, Fawad Ahmed, Khary Pierre, Ali Khan, Anderson Phillip.

Guyana Amazon Warriors

Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Ross Taylor, Sherfane Rutherford, Keemo Paul, Chris Green (C), Romario Shepherd, Naveen-ul-Haq, Imran Tahir.

Expected Top Players

Brandon King

Brandon King had a great 2019 CPL season where he was the top run-getter of the tournament. He had amassed 492 runs with the best score of 132* and the Warriors will be hopeful of a similar show from him this time around.

Imran Tahir

The surface at the Brian Lara Stadium is a heaven for the bowlers like Imran Tahir. He would love to bowl more in this tournament having scalped 32 wickets in only 21 matches in CPL so far.

Sunil Narine

Sunil Narine, more often than not, plays his best best cricket in the CPL itself. His runs at the top of the order are literally bonus for the Knight Riders and then he makes the batsmen dance on his tunes with the ball. Expect him to be one of the top players of this match.

Our Betting Tips

The head to head battles are in favour of the Trinbago Knight Riders after 19 matches. But it is tough to predict an outright winner between the two teams. However, going by the records, the Knight Riders tend to start the tournament on a high and we expect them to come up trumps in this game.

Our Prediction: Trinbago Knight Riders are expected to win the match.
