The Trinidad wicket will be expected to be a very good batting track along with consistent pace and bounce. While it will be a batting paradise, the spinners are also expected to get some purchase from this wicket and the surface will also be good for batting in the second innings. Nonetheless, the captain winning the toss will be electing to bat first.

He would be hoping to play yet another impactful knock against Trinbago Knight Riders.
Probable best bowler of the match
Sunil Narine has turned out to be a valuable asset for the Trinbago Knight Riders with the ball in hand.
