Barbados Tridents travel away to Trinbago Knight Riders in the upcoming fixture of the Caribbean Premier League 2019. Both sides have been successful in securing a place in the play-offs of the tournament. Nonetheless, plenty hinges on this contest as a victory could propel either side into the second place on the leader-board. Finishing in the top two remains the next main priority at this stage of the tournament as it gives the side another chance to qualify for the final if they have a bad day at the office in the first qualifier.
Partly Cloudy conditions with few chances of rain and temperature ranging around 29 degrees Celsius expected during the game.
The surface will be flat and won’t offer much aid to the bowlers while this ground also has shorter boundaries, which means we might witness a high-scoring contest.
No notable injury concerns reported.
Probable Playing XI:
Jonathan Charles and Alex Hales will be relied upon to provide a stable foundation at the start, which can then provide freedom to the likes of JP Duminy and Shakib al Hasan to accelerate in the middle and play the big shots. Hayden Walsh has picked up a remarkable 15 scalps from just five games in this season and his wicket-taking knack could prove to be pivotal in this match.
Alex Hales, Johnson Charles (WK), JP Duminy, Shakib al Hasan, Jonathan Carter, Justin Greaves, Ashley Nurse, Raymon Reifer, Harry Gurney, Hayden Walsh, Jason Holder (C)
Trinbago Knight Riders:
Lendl Simmons has been the chief contributor with the willow in hand while Colin Munro, Kieron Pollard, and Daren Bravo have also chipped in with vital runs during the course of the competition. Jimmy Neesham’s dual expertise will be of paramount importance on a flat surface and the Kiwi all-rounder could turn out to be the difference-maker.
Mark Deyal, Lendl Simmons, Colin Munro, Kieron Pollard (C), Denesh Ramdin (WK), Darren Bravo, Jimmy Neesham, Javon Searles, Chris Jordan, Khary Pierre, Ali Khan
Lendl Simmons and Kieron Pollard are must-haves ahead of this contest as the pair have amassed 288 runs and 244 runs respectively in this tournament. Shakib Al-Hasan is another player that should find a place in your Dream11 team as the all-rounder can contribute with both bat and bowl. Daren Bravo scored a half-century in the previous game and would be a wise addition since the southpaw looks in good touch at the moment.
