TKR vs BAR Dream11 Match Prediction Cricket Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Tridents CPL T20 23 August

TKR vs BAR Dream11 Prediction: Caribbean Premier League can be counted as second best T20 competition in the world right now. The main reason for that would be the quality of teams that the league has. Almost all the sides are full of international match-winners as well as domestic talents. Another exciting contest coming your way this Sunday as Trinbago Knight Riders will take on Barbados Tridents in the 9th match of the season. We will preview the match in our Dream11 fantasy cricket.

Trinbago Knight Riders have been dominant team so far this season with a top position in the points table by the virtue of their two wins in as many matches. First they overcame Guyana Amazon Warriors and then they absolutely hammered Jamaica Tallawahs. In the last match against Jamaica, Ali Khan and Jayden Seales led the way with two wickets each. Sunil Narine, Fawad Ahmed and Dwayne Bravo also bowled well to restrict the Tallawahs for just 135 runs. In reply, Sunil Narine and Colin Munro made the light work of the chase as TKR stormed home by 7 wickets.

Barbados Tridents had an interesting start to the season this year. In the first match, they beat St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in a close encounter while they faltered in the second match against St Lucia Zouks. After a good opening partnership between Johnson Charles and Shai Hope, they lost a couple of wickets in a hurry. Kyle Mayers and Jason Holder rescued them a bit to set up a launching platform. But they lost the plot suddenly and gave way to a collapse before the rain came. They were 131-7 at that time and according to DLS method, the Zouks were given a target of 47 from 5 overs. Rashid Khan picked up a couple of scalps but that wasn’t going to be enough after a weak batting performance.

If we look at the history between both the sides, Trinbago Knight Riders are just ahead with 8 wins compared to 7 of Barbados Tridents in 15 matches between them. However, the Tridents have won last 3 matches against TKR. So, the Tridents will look to build upon the recent success against the in-form team of the tournament.

Pitch and Conditions

Clear skies are expected in most parts of the morning today. Temperatures in late 20s will make it a pleasant atmosphere for cricket. We may get a shower or two in between but nothing much serious apart from that. Same pitch from the yesterday’s matches will be in use again and there will be significant help for the slower bowlers.

Trinbago Knight Riders Team News

  • Trinbago Knight Riders are expected to go in with the same playing XI from the last match.
  • Though Lendl Simmons is yet find something from the tournament but Sunil Narine and Colin Munro are looking in excellent touch with the bat. This top order of TKR will be much harder to stop if Lendl Simmons also joins the party.
  • Darren Bravo is the anchor in middle order while Tim Seifert has not spent much time at the crease so far. We all know about the potential of Tim Seifert in franchise T20 cricket. Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo are very experienced campaigners in this format of the game.
  • Ali Khan and Jayden Seales will keep their places in the XI as fast bowling options while Khary Pierre and Fawad Ahmed will take care of spin bowling duties along with Sunil Narine.

Barbados Tridents Team News

  • Barbados Tridents have a couple players which they may try in this match against Trinbago Knight Riders.
  • Johnson Charles and Shai Hope have been decent at the top but the former is not at his usual best so far in the season. But their major concern would be Corey Anderson at number 3. He is looking terribly out of form with the bat right now. But he won’t find a better time to come back into his hitting zone.
  • Kyle Mayers and Jason Holder have been good in the middle order. Especially, Jason Holder is looking in terrific batting form right now. They can try Justin Greaves in the place of Jonathan Carter. Apart from that they need to utilize the batting abilities of Raymon Reifer and Rashid Khan better in the death overs.
  • Spin bowling department is their strong suit with Rashid Khan, Mitchell Santner, Hayden Walsh Jr and Ashley Nurse all playing in the XI. This is where Barbados Tridents can set things up for them.

Captain Picks

For Small Leagues

  • Sunil Narine is a straight forward pick for captaincy position in any of your teams. He was named ‘Man of the Match’ in both TKR wins so far. He takes control right from the power-play overs in both segments of the game. Looking at his all-round abilities, he is currently the MVP of the league.
  • Colin Munro has enough experience up his sleeves to adjust his game according to the situation at least in T20 cricket. He bats at very important number 3 position for TKR and he guided them to victory in the last match against Jamaica Tallawahs. He made unbeaten 49 with the help of 5 fours and 2 sixes.
  • Rashid Khan has always been in demand when it comes to T20 leagues. And in fantasy cricket also, the scenario is not so different. He has picked up 4 wickets from the two matches and if the Tridents give him enough time in the batting, he can maximize your points as a captain.

For Grand Leagues

  • You can bet on Dwayne Bravo depending upon the other options in your team. Dwayne Bravo can only be chosen because of his all-round abilities. But he bats very lower down the order, so he is mainly a bowler in most matches in terms of fantasy points. Conditions will suit his style of bowling, you can take chance as per your assessment in the grand leagues.
  • Jason Holder has looked ominous with the bat so far. He is hitting them beautifully from the middle of his bat. His long reach is making him even more destructive in the middle overs. Plus he can always provide you points with his new ball bowling. A very good option for the grand leagues.
  • Mitchell Santner was very impressive in the first match against the Patriots. His left-arm finger spin has always been effective in limited overs cricket and these slower pitches are perfect for him. He didn’t get much of an opportunity in the last match but will certainly get one against TKR.

Who will win TKR vs BAR Today Match Prediction?

As per our Dream11 predictions, Trinbago Knight Riders are favourites for this clash against Barbados Tridents. TKR have all their bases covered with plenty of all-rounders in their arsenal. But you can’t discount some of the match-winners from the Tridents squad. Especially, the spin-bowling cartel of the Tridents is among the bests in the competition.
