Barbados Tridents vs Trinbago Knight Riders, Caribbean Premier League, Match Prediction

Barbados Tridents and Trinbago Knight Riders face each other in the 17th fixture of the Caribbean Premier League 2020.  

Team Preview 

The defending champions will take on table-topper Trinbago Knight Riders in the Saturday fixture after an off day at Caribbean T20 League. Barbados got an important victory in the previous encounter against Jamaica Tallawahs, before losing three straight games. Riding on Mayer’s outstanding 59-balls 85, Tridents put 148 on a challenging track. Apart from Mayers, the whole batting unit was a big flop at Oval on Wednesday. The bowlers did not disappoint the skipper and restricted Jamaica on 122 to get 2 important points. Santner again led from the front with picking 2 wickets for just 10 runs and he got support from Rashid, Reifer, and Holder who also got two wickets each. The race for the semifinal is quick and each game is important for Tridents.

Meanwhile, Trinbago is unstoppable in the tournament with winning five out of five with no panic button. In the previous encounter, they went past Guyana Amazon Warriors. After Khary Pierre’s 18/3, Riders restricted Guayna on a mere total of 112. On a spinning track, Trinbago once lost two wickets in power-play but Dareen Bravo and Seifert guided Night Riders to a 5th consecutive victory. The Hosts had earlier defeated Barbados in first leg game when Bravo-Pollard duo put a good stand to post 185 and bowlers made task easier. 

Pitch Report 

Queen’s Park Oval is completely a spinning track. To get a good score, batsmen require patience and sensibility. Spinners are a big threat on this surface. Batting first would be an ideal call and any score above 140 is a winning total if the opposition has quality spinners. Being the first game of the day, we expect a good score.

Barbados Tridents
