Barbados Royals vs Trinbago Knight Riders
CPL T20i Match Prediction & Tips
Time: 03 Sep, 07:30 PM (IST)
Series: CPL T20i Match 8
Venue: Darren Sammy Stadium – Gros Islet
BAR vs TKR Dream11 Prediction:
- Opener Kyle Mayers has top scored for Barbados Royals in both games in the CPL so far this season. The strong left-hander is well worth backing as their highest run scorer against Trinbago Knight Riders. Obed McCoy bowled only one over in the rain reduced innings last time out. The left-arm pace bowler is our tip for Barbados’ top wicket taker in this match.
- Nicholas Pooran has a batting strike-rate of 142.36 in this format and hit 91 in his last international appearance in August. The left-hander is our pick for the Knight Riders’ highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Ravi Rampaul is a consistent wicket taker in this format across the globe and he is our choice for the Knight Riders’ top wicket taker against Barbados Royals.
- Kyle Mayers has been in fine form in the tournament. We recommend backing him to score over 22.5 runs in this clash.

Weather & Pitch Report:
There is a risk of rain throughout the second half of this game on Wednesday morning at Gros Islet. It will be very humid from start to finish.
We expect the surface to be quick in Saint Lucia but there will also be turn for the spin bowlers. Any score over 160 will be very hard to chase down in this match.
All skippers have opted to field first in the 2022 CPL so far. Very few teams in any T20 tournaments want to bat first and we expect the teams to want to bowl first in this game.

BAR vs TKR TEAM NEWS:
BR Team News:
There was one change for Barbados Royals from their opening game win over St Kitts & Nevis Patriots with South Africa’s keeper-batter Quinton de Kock coming in at the expense of West Indian international Devon Thomas. With two wins from two, we expect the same XI for this game.
TKR Team News:
Spinner Akeal Hosein, who took the Player of the Match with figures of 4-13 in the win over Saint Lucia Kings, missed the no-result in Match 5 through injury. Although he is expected to be back soon, we do not anticipate he will be risked in this fixture.

Trinbago Knight Riders are favorites to beat Barbados Royals at the odds.
BR Key Players:
The batting all-rounder has had an excellent start to the tournament. He has scored over 100 runs and took 4-4 from his two overs against Saint Lucia Kings on Sunday.
The bowling all-rounder hit a run a ball 15 whilst handing the strike to his batting partners in the last game. He took 2-21 against St Kitts & Nevis Patriots.
The tall and fast 25-year-old left-arm bowler took 1-41 in the Royals’ opening game. He relished the strike bowler role on this side.
TKR Key Players:
The left-handed number three batter is one of the cleanest hitters in the West Indies. He is a naturally aggressive player.
The all-rounder opens the batting for the Knight Riders and is also extremely dangerous with the ball. We expect him to enjoy bowling on this surface.
The experienced 37 year old pace bowler has an excellent T20 record. He didn’t pick up wickets during the final three games of the 6ixty but 219 wickets in this format.
