BAR vs SKN Dream11 Match Prediction Barbados Tridents vs St Kitts and Nevis Patriots CPL T20 19 August

BAR vs SKN Dream11 Prediction: The second match of CPL 2020 will be played between Barbados Tridents and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. This match will be played at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba. While Barbados Tridents are the defending champions coming into this season while St Kitts and Nevis Patriots were knocked out in the eliminator last year. Having said that, both teams had a similar run in the group stages of the season with both winning 5 out of their 10 matches.

Jason Holder will lead two times CPL champions Barbados Tridents in this season as well. Although the Tridents look strong on their domestic players, they will be the only team to have only 3 overseas players in the playing XI. Marcus Stoinis and Alex Hales were ruled out of the season earlier due to various reasons. Domestic players will have to stand up and take responsibility this year if they have any hopes of repeating last year’s performance.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have a new captain this year with Rayad Emrit at the helm of affairs. Patriots have been dominant against the Tridents with 7 wins out of 10 matches against them. Even in recent history, St Kitts franchise has taken 4 out of the last 5 games between both sides. They are meeting for the first time at the Brian Lara Stadium.

Pitch and Conditions

The weather is expected to remain clear for this encounter. Clear skies and high humidity will be the flavours of the day at Tarouba. If we talk about the pitch, same strip will be used for this match after the opening encounter between TKR and GAW. The conditions are anyways slow at this venue and having tired pitch will only add to this factor. Spinners will be the key again for both the teams.

BAR vs SKN Dream11 Team Prediction

Let’s take a look at the likely playing XIs for both the teams in today match prediction.

Barbados Tridents Squad

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

Barbados Tridents Team News

  • CPL’s one of the most consistent batsmen in Johnson Charles will open the batting for the defending champions. He will be partnered by Shai Hope who has the tendency of getting stuck at one end in T20 cricket. Strike rotation will be crucial for Shai Hope and the Tridents at the top of the order.
  • Only Justin Greaves and Jonathan Carter are specialist batsmen in Tridents middle order with a plethora of all-rounders after them. Corey Anderson, Jason Holder, Rashid Khan and Mitchell Santner will ensure that Tridents have enough fire-powers to finish the innings well.
  • Ashley Nurse and Hayden Walsh Jr will be the specialist spinners in the playing XI along with Rashid Khan and Mitchell Santner. Left-arm Raymon Reifer will take the new ball in the hope of some early swing.

SKNP Team News

  • St Kitts and Nevis Patriots do have a blockbuster opening pair in Chris Lynn and Evin Lewis. Both are experienced T20 campaigners and can hit the ball a long way. Right, and left-hand opening partnership is an added advantage for any team in T20 cricket.
  • Australian import Ben Dunk and Denesh Ramdin will be boosting the Patriots middle order this year. Emerging player Joshua Da Silva has impressed everyone with his performance in the intra-squad match on the recent England tour. They are expected to start with either Nicholas Kelly or Jahman Hamilton.
  • Sohail Tanvir can be a useful lower-order batsman along with his left-arm pace bowling. Rayad Emrit, Alzarri Joseph and Sheldon Cottrell will be part of a powerful fast bowling unit but they have only one frontline spinner in Ish Sodhi.

All-rounders: Mitchell Santner, Sohail Tanvir
Bowlers: Rashid Khan, Hayden Walsh Jr, Ish Sodhi, Rayad Emrit

Top Picks

  • Johnson Charles is one of top performing batsmen of the league over the years. He can be very destructive at the top with his abilities against both spin and pace. He was the third-highest run-scorer of the league last year with 415 runs at an average of 32.
  • Evin Lewis has been a popular pick in T20 format across the globe. This powerful left-hander was also part of Mumbai Indians squad for the IPL last year. In CPL, he scored 265 runs last year at a strike-rate of 150.
  • Afghanistan captain Rashid Khan is an asset to any T20 side and has always remained in high demand in the franchise cricket. With conditions in his favour, he will be very difficult to tackle for the oppositions.
  • Ish Sodhi is the only spinner in St Kitts lineup and expected to play a pivotal role in his team’s fortunes this year. Pitches are likely to get tired as the season progresses and his big turning leg-spinners will become handy for your dream 11 prediction.
