|Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Royals Match 16 CPL|
|Date||14th September 2022|
|Time||4:30 AM IST, 11:00 PM GMT, 7:00 PM LOCAL|
|Venue||Queens Park Oval, Trinidad|
Trinbago Knight Riders have had an ordinary tournament so far. They are placed at the bottom of the points table after losing two of the four games. One match was washed out due to rain so they only have one win to show, thus they can not afford to lose the coming game against Barbados Royals. Knight Riders have a strong team on paper with players like Colin Munro, Tim Seifert, Nicholas Pooran, Andre Russell, Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine, yet their performance has been poor, especially from the batters.
Meanwhile, Barbados Royals have been unstoppable so far, winning all five games they have played. They have been the best team in the tournament as all their wins have been comprehensive. The last time these two teams met, Barbados won the match by 80 runs
This will be the first game of CPL 2022 in Trinidad. The wicket here is good for batting and the boundaries are also not big. However, there is some movement for the bowlers early on while spinners also get some help when the ball gets soft.
There is a 50 per cent chance of rain on the match day. The humidity will be around 70 per cent while the temperature will range between 32 and 34 degrees.
Tion Webster, Sunil Narine, Colin Munro, Nicholas Pooran, Tim Seifert (wk), Shaaron Lewis, Kieron Pollard (c), Andre Russell, Khary Pierre/Akeal Hossain, Ravi Rampaul, Daryn Dupavillon/Ali Khan
Kyle Mayers, Quinton de Kock (wk), Corbin Bosch, Azam Khan, David Miller (c), Jason Holder, Devon Thomas, Hayden Walsh, Joshua Bishop, Obed McCoy, Oshane Thomas
Barbados Royals is unlikely to change the winning combination, however, Mujeeb ur Rahman might have joined the team which may tempt them to have him in the team. Knight Riders may make a few changes and play Ali Khan and Akeal Hossain
Trinbago Knight Riders have a great record against Barbados Royals but the Royals picked up a big win over Knight Riders in the last meet.
|Wicketkeeper||Nicolas Pooran, Quinton De Kock|
|Batters||Kyle Myers (VC), David Miller, Tion Webster|
|All-rounders||Sunil Narine (C), Corbin Bosch, Jason Holder|
|Bowlers||Ravi Rampaul, Obed McCoy, Khary Pierre|
De Kock finally got back to form and played a good hand of 64 against Jamaica Tallawahs. We all know how dangerous De Kock can be on his day but his form of late was not good. But this innings will give him a lot of confidence and we may get to see free flowing De Kock of old in the matches to come.
Bosch’s promotion to the top order has worked well for Barbados. 81 and 56 are his knocks in the last two matches and he looks in red hot form at the moment. He is a good addition to our team given his form.
Pooran has been out of form for a while, but none of the batters from Knight Riders have done well in the tournament. If we need to bet on a player, it has to be Pooran who is one of the few TKR batters who is an active international cricketer and plays regular cricket.
Kyle Myers has been a good addition to his Barbados team. He is a player who opens the batting and bowling for Barbados which tells how much the team relies on him. Myers has played a couple of good knocks with the bat and has bowled brilliantly as well. He has taken five wickets in as many matches so far.
Sunil Narine is not the same player he used to be but he is still very effective. While he has not scored many runs, he has been brilliant with the ball. In the last game, he bowled a spell of 2-11 in 4 overs.
