After a scintillating win over St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, Trinbago Knight Riders will be aiming to keep up with the momentum when they challenge Barbados Royals in their upcoming game in the Caribbean Premier League. The Rovman Powell-led side has won only one game so far while losing another one and one of their matches was called off due to rain. In the last match, they played some really good cricket against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and will be aiming to continue in the same spirit.

When it comes to Trinbago, it looks like one of the strongest sides on paper. In the last match, Nicholas Pooran, skipper Kieron Pollard and Andre Russell wreaked havoc with the bat, while Sunil Narine picked up three wickets, giving away only 24 runs in his four overs. Barbados too have quality batters in the mix. Rovman himself is in sensational form while Rahkeem Cornwall and Kyle Mayers have been impressive as well. Hence, a cracking game is expected when these two sides face each other.

Probable Top Performers of BR vs TKR

Probable Best Batter of the Match

Nicholas Pooran- Trinbago Knight Riders

Flamboyant batter Nicholas Pooran is in terrific form at the moment. In the last match, the stumper-batter hit 61 runs off just 32 deliveries and will be aiming to keep up with the form. He was sensational in the series against India as well and hence, will be a key part of Trinbago in the match against Barbados.

Probable Best Bowler of the Match

Sunil Narine – Trinbago Knight

On a surface that’s very likely to assist the spinners, Sunil Narine can wreak havoc. He picked up three wickets in the last match and will once again have a vital role in the upcoming game.
