Trinbago Knight Riders to win the match
The betting tip is...
Sunil Narine to pick more than 2.5 wickets
Trinbago Knight Riders finished at the bottom of the point table in CPL 2022 with only three wins in the overall tournament. However, they will be eying to start the campaign on a positive note under the leadership of Kieron Pollard.
Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, and Nicholas Pooran will be the key players and Dwayne Bravo’s return has come out as good news for the team. Akeal Hosein, Jayden Seales, and Mark Deyal are the young guns and the team will be hoping for a good performance from them.
Skipper Kieron Pollard will have the availability of all the players and he will have the option to choose the best playing XI.
Predicted Lineup: Rilee Rossouw, Martin Guptill, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard ©, Dwayne Bravo, Andre Russell, Mark Deyal, Nicholas Pooran, Akeal Hosein, Noor Ahmad, Jayden Seales
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots will be playing their first fixture on Saturday but they still have not confirmed their team captain. This is not a good sign but there is a hope that head coach Malolan Rangarajan will be announcing the name soon. Andre Fletcher and Evin Lewis will be in the opening lineup with Ambati Rayudu and Sherfane Rutherford in the middle order. Yannic Cariah and Oshane Thomas will be the primary bowling attack for the team.
The primary concern for the team management will be the weak bowling unit.
Predicted Lineup: Evin Lewis, Dewald Brevis, Sherfane Rutherford, Andre Fletcher, Joshua Da Silva, Dominic Drakes, Yannic Cariah, Corbin Bosch, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Ambati Rayudu
After analysing the squad of both teams, it is very clear that St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have a big void in their bowling department. The Knight Riders, on the other hand, is a well-balanced team and they have experienced players to handle the pressure. We predict a win for Trinbago Knight Riders.
