Sheldon Cottrell has 24 scalps from 16 matches in T20Is. He was the best bowler in the World Cup 2019 for Windies.

Fantasy picks from Trinbago Knight Riders-

Trinbago Knight Riders will rely heavily on the likes of Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, James Neesham etc.

Pollard is coming with a rich vein of form in this competition after showing his power-hitting prowess in the Global T20 Canada.

James Neesham has scored 122 runs from 12 T20I innings and scalped 11 wickets as well.

Sunil Narine had an indifferent show with the ball in the Global T20, but he was once again explosive at the top order with the bat. He will be looking to lit-up this CPL with his batting.
