Who will winWho will win CPL 2020

Elite T20 cricket returns with the Caribbean Premier League set to start in Trinidad on August 18.

Tournament organisers have had to overcome several challenges to get the tournament on, but an elite list of players are signed up as Barbados Tridents bid to defend their title.

While travel restrictions have reduced some players’ availability, West Indian stars such as Andre Russell and Kieron Pollard are on board, while Ross Taylor, Imran Tahir and Colin Munro are among the overseas stars.

The Tridents have lost some key players from last season’s title win, although they still boast a strong squad, while the Guyana Amazon Warriors and Jamaica Tallawahs feature some big-name T20 match-winners in their squads too.

The Amazon Warriors have been named as joint-favourites with the bookmakers, alongside Trinbago Knight Riders.

Which Team will Win CPL 2020

Defending champions Barbados Tridents have retained last season’s Player of the Series, Hayden Walsh Jr, as they bid for a third CPL title. They are not favourites, but having kept hold of several key men from last season – with the inevitable loss of a couple of players they should not be written off.

Team Information

BT Team Information

West Indies’ captain Jason Holder leads the Tridents, while the 2019 Player of the Series Hayden Walsh Jr and star batsman Shai Hope are also retained.
The Tridents won the tournament last season, beating Guyana Amazon Warriors in the final after Walsh claimed 22 wickets in just nine games.

Four of the top-five wicket-takers last season were Barbados Tridents bowlers, while Johnson Charles led the team’s batting.

They have lost some key players for this season, including English duo Harry Gurney and Alex Hales, but they remain among the top teams on paper.

Squad changes

BT Squad changes

Wahab Riaz, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Marcus Stoinis, Harry Gurney and Alex Hales have all withdrawn for various reasons.

Corey Anderson, Mitchell Santner, Shamarh Brooks and Keon Harding have been brought in as replacement players.

From last season’s squad, Sandeep Lamichhane has left the Tridents but his replacement is a big one – Rashid Khan signing for the Tridents for this year’s competition.

Nyeem Young was announced as the Tridents’ first emerging player signing, with Joshua Bishop also linking up with the squad this year.

BT key players

  • Captain – Jason Holder:

    The West Indies captain was also among the leading bowlers in last season’s CPL, taking 14 wickets as he led the Tridents to the title.

  • Johnson Charles:

    The big-hitting wicket-keeper-batsman hammered 415 runs last season and the opening batsman boasts a healthy strike rate in T20 cricket.

  • Hayden Walsh Jr:

    Named Player of the Series last season for his superb bowling performances, which also earned him a place in the West Indies squad. He took 22 wickets in just nine games.

  • Raymon Reifer:

    Figures of 4-24 in last season’s final proved his worth with the ball as he finished the tournament with 14 wickets in ten innings in total.

  • Rashid Khan:

    The Afghan spinner is still ranked as the number one bowler in world T20i cricket, taking five wickets in his last three games in format. He has 296 wickets in 211 T20s.

CPL 2020 BT Team Squad

Rashid Khan, Jason holder (C), Corey Anderson, Shamarh Brooks, Mitchell Santner, Johnson Charles, Shai Hope, Hayden Walsh Jr, Ashley Nurse, Jonathan Carter, Raymon Reifer, Kyle Mayers, Joshua Bishop, Nyeem Young, Justin Greaves, Keon Harding, Shayan Jahangir.

Summary

Summary

Barbados Tridents impressed last season, with a well-balanced squad coming together to lead them to the title.

Hayden Walsh Jr was one of the stars of the tournament, while Jason Holder, Raymon Reifer and Harry Gurney also contributed plenty of wickets.

Johnson Charles and Alex Hales were among the Tridents’ top batsman, meanwhile.

Gurney and Hales will be missed this season, as will Wahab Riaz and unavailable new signing Marcus Stoinis. They still boast a strong squad, however, and new acquisition Rashid Khan could be key.

Rashid adds more wicket-taking quality to this line-up and the Tridents will expect to be in the play-off mix once again.

Expert Prediction

Expert Prediction for BT

Semi-Finalists

The Tridents have a lot of the stars of last season’s triumph, even if some others are now unavailable. The signing of Rashid Khan could prove an inspired choice too, but other teams have strengthened well too, and Hales and Gurney in particular could be missed.

BT CPL 2020 odds

Barbados Tridents are 4.50 with Betway and Bet365 to win the 2020 Caribbean Premier League.

CPL 2020 Group Stage Prediction

  1. While Guyana Amazon Warriors have never won the Caribbean Premier League, they have never failed to reach the play-offs. Regardless of whether they end their long search for the trophy, they are among the favourites to finish in the top four.
  2. The same is true of Trinbago Knight Riders, who have won the tournament three times and reached the play-offs in all seven editions.
  3. Both teams have an excellent record of reaching the top four so, as well as being favourites for the tournament, they will expect to at least reach the play-offs.
  4. Defending champions Barbados Tridents were out of the play-offs for three consecutive years before their title last year.
  5. The vast improvement, and the fact they have kept hold of key players like Hayden Walsh Jr, should mean they reach the last four again. Even without stars like Alex Hales, they have the players to reach the play-offs – the big question is if they can go further.
  6. Jamaica Tallawahs’ dismal showing last season will concern them, particularly as they had never previously failed to reach the play-offs.
  7. Much more is expected of them this year, however, after some big changes ahead of the tournament.
  8. If the Tallawahs make the top four, one of last year’s play-off teams will have to miss out and St Kitts & Nevis Patriots could be the team to drop out.
  9. They have stars at both ends of their team line-up, but squad depth is an issue. If Lynn and Lewis are out early, where will the run come from?
  10. St Lucia Zouks, meanwhile, have only ever reached the play-offs once and, while Kimani Melius is an exciting addition to the line-up, there is little to suggest they will be adding to that record this year.

CPL 2020 Playoff Prediction

Guyana Amazon Warriors and Trinbago Knight Riders have never failed to reach the play-offs, so they will expect to qualify again.

They certainly have the squads and the firepower to reach the last four once again. So, what next?

Guyana Amazon Warriors have never won the tournament, despite reaching five of the seven finals. After their near miss last season, this could finally be the year they end that run.

They should fancy their chances of reaching the final, which would mean defending champions Barbados Tridents missing out. Key players remain, but they will be without some of their bigger stars too and that is a big blow.

Finally, while Jamaica Tallawahs have improved enough to deserve to be considered for the CPL play-offs, they still have work to do to match the top teams after their dismal showing last season. Consistency may be their problem.

If St Kitts & Nevis Patriots or St Lucia Zouks reach the play-offs, they too will be outsiders.

Final Verdict

Back Guyana Amazon Warriors to win CPL 2020 at 3.75 with Betway and Bet365
