Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) vs St Lucia Zouks (SLZ)

Can the Zouks stop the Knight Riders Juggernaut?

The Trinbago Knight Riders have gotten off to a terrific start, winning two out of two games. They have been in a spot of bother on both occasions but like most champion sides do, they have found a way to get out of it. The St Lucia Zouks started off with a loss to the Warriors a couple of days back. They were always behind the 8-ball in that game and will look to do things better tonight. TKR have a strong bowling line-up and an extremely destructive middle order. Their only possible weakness was in their top 3 but Tion Webster proved otherwise. The Zouks have a good mix of bowlers in their side but batting is there issue. A couple of al- rounders, who are the seniors as well, should step up to put up good totals.

 


Team News

If Munro is available, he should replace L Simmons at the top. If not, the same XI for TKR. SLZ might think it is too early to chop and change but J Campbell might a look in for A McCarthy.

 


Pitch Report

The pitch at Port of Spain has been a belter for batsmen in the recent past. The average first innings score last season at this venue was 194 in 5 games. There has been a 190+ score in the last 2 games as well.

 


Must have players

 

Kieron Pollard

The veteran is back to where it all started for him. He has been getting a lot of runs including some international T20 runs. He scored a 32 ball 47 in the opening game as well.

 

Sunil Narine

The all-rounder shut all critics with a 22 ball 46 and 2 wickets in the last game. He can certainly turn games around, win games with the bat and ball. His return to form will only make it better for TKR.

 

James Neesham

After a brilliant World Cup for the Blackcaps, he continued his good form with a match-winning performance with bat and ball in the opening game. He is certainly capable of doing more of that in the coming games as well.

 


X factor players / Big bets

 

Fawad Ahmed

An overseas pro and a T20 specialist. He has not disappointed at all. His T20 record speaks for himself and he announced himself in this CPL with a crafty 2/25. He could break into the middle order of TKR.

 

Obed McCoy

The 22-year-old has a bag of tricks in his armory. He used them well in the last game and picked up 4/41. He is really the trump card with the ball as far as the Zouks are concerned.
