Saint Lucia Kings will take on the Trinbago Knight Riders in Match 2 of CPL 2022 at the Warner Park in St. Kitts. This will be a repeat of the semi-final fixture that took place last year between the two sides and Trinbago Knight Riders will seek for redemption. The Knight Riders will be led by the experienced Kieron Pollard who announced his retirement from international cricket few months back.  

On the other hand, Faf du Plessis is expected to lead the St. Lucia Kings and the finalists last year have a fiery middle order with Tim David and David Wiese. Roston Chase, who picked up the player of the series award in the previous edition will have a big role to play in the SLK batting line-up.

SLK vs TKR Probable Performers 

Probable best batter of the match 

Nicholas Pooran 

Nicholas Pooran has been short of runs for a while now in international cricket and he had an ordinary series against India at home recently. The left hander will be looking to regain his best form in CPL 2022 which will be a massive boost ahead of the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. He still is among the most destructive batters going around and can have a big impact.  

Probable best bowler of the match 

Sunil Narine 

Sunil Narine is a giant when it comes to the T20 format and he has been stepping up whenever he has been handed the ball. The spinner recently played in the Hundred tournament where he looked in excellent rhythm and he can also bat at the top of the order. The 34-year-old is an asset in the bowling setup especially with his economy rates in different phases of the game.
