TKR vs BR Pitch Report
The surface isn’t as fast and bouncy as it once was in Trinidad, but we still anticipate speed bowlers to outperform spinners. A par score will be at around 170.
Trinbago Knight Riders
The Knight Riders added speed bowlers Shaaron Lewis and Daryn Dupavilion to their squad ahead of their loss to the Jamaica Tallawahs. Both took wickets and will remain in their positions for this match, however the under-performing batting order may alter. The Knight Riders have lost their past games and are looking to prevent a third consecutive defeat in this contest.
An additional spinner was chosen for the Barbados Royals XI before their victory over the Jamaica Tallawahs. Joshua Bishop entered the game and finished with 1-25, but his place in this match in Port of Spain, where pace bowlers are anticipated to perform better, is not guaranteed.
The left-handed fast bowler Obed McCoy had a strong outing against the Jamaica Tallawahs. He dismissed Chris Green, Fabian Allen, and leading scorer Rovman Powell. The Royals have defeated every CPL 2022 club and have won five of their last five games.
Head to Head
In the last five matches, BR has won four which is totally a dominating stat. In the 2022 CPL, the Barbados Royals have been unbeatable, and we anticipate that this encounter will be no exception. The Trinbago Knight Riders have had a relatively poor season, but its star players will want to compete well against the elite teams.
