The first semi-final of Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021 will see Tringabo Knight Riders taking on Saint Lucia Kings. Both these teams have been the standout sides of the tournament and it would be interesting to see who emerges victoriously in the knock-out fixture. With six wins in 10 games, the Trinbago Knight Riders finished the group stage at the top position.
On the other hand, the Saint Lucia Kings won five of their 10 games and finished at the fourth spot. Notably, these two teams met in last year’s final and the Knight Riders walked away with a comfortable eight-wicket triumph in that match. Hence, the Kings will have redemption in mind and it would be interesting to see how this match pans out.
