Trinbago Knight Riders and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots had a very poor time in the last edition of the Caribbean Premier League. Thus, the goal in the 2023 edition will be to get better and compete again for the coveted trophy. In order to do so, the Knight Riders have brought back their old warhorse in the form of Dwayne Bravo, while the likes of Kieron Pollard, Nicholas Pooran, Rilee Rossouw, Sunil Narine, Andre Russell and Martin Guptill too are available for selection. Hence, they have lined up an extremely competitive squad which can decimate any opponent on their day.

Meanwhile, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have the likes of Evin Lewis, Ambati Rayudu, Dewald Brevis, Sherfane Rutherford and Yannic Cariah, among many others, who can threaten Trinbago on August 19 at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet in St Lucia. They will have to be consistent, as that is one area that the team was lacking in the last edition.

Probable Top Performers

Probable Best Batter of the Match

Nicholas Pooran – Trinbago Knight Riders

West Indies international Nicholas Pooran is in terrific form at the moment. First, he helped MI New York win the inaugural edition of the Major League Cricket, and after that, the stumper-batter wreaked havoc in the T20I series against India. Hence, his form will be extremely important for Trinbago Knight Riders, who will be desperate to return to winning ways.

Probable Best Bowler of the Match

Akeal Hosein – Trinbago Knight Riders

Akeal Hosein picked up 11 wickets in his last ten matches. He can be economical and will be crucial for the team in the tournament.
