CPL 2021, Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Royals: The Trinbago Knight Riders will lock horns with Barbados Royals in the fourth match of the CPL 2021 at the Warner Park at St Kitts on Saturday.
Defending Champions Trinbago Knight Riders displayed gleaming performance in last season of CPL. They won all the 10 fixtures of the league stage & topped the Points Table before winning the semi-finals & eventually the final of CPL 2020.
However, Defending Champions Trinbago Knight Riders didn’t have had the perfect start to this year’s campaign. The Knight riders lost the opening clash of CPL 2021 to the Guyana Warriors. Chasing a meager 143 runs they could only score 133/9 runs. Though their bowlers did a good job their batsman failed to execute well with the bat ending their 12 match winning streak.
On the other hand, the Barbados Royals didn’t have an impressive campaign in the last edition of the CPL 2021. They could manage to win just three clashes in league stages & ended in the fifth spot in the Points Table. Just like Trinbago Knight Riders, Barbados also failed to have a winning start to their campaign of CPL 2021.
They conceded a mammoth 175 runs by bowling first against St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots and were unsuccessful in chasing down the same. Therefore both the teams will head into this match on the back of defeats. They will look ahead to get their campaigns back on track by winning their first clash of the season. With both the teams eyeing victory, fans can expect a thrilling contest on cards.
