Trinbago Knight Riders Reviews
Trinbago Knight Riders is a team that had been strong in almost all seasons of the Caribbean Premier League but in the last season, they failed to give their best performance and they will be confident to give their outstanding performance during this season. They could manage to win just four out of ten matches played at the league stage in the previous season of CPL. They lost five matches while their one match was ended with no result. They were holding the 4th position on the points table after the end of league stage matches. They won the Eliminator match against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots but were beaten in the qualifier two by Barbados Tridents.
Trinbago Knight Riders will have a good season of CPL if their batting order gets on fire. There are some seniors players and the best batsmen of the shorter format of cricket are the part of the batting order of this team. Kieron Pollard, Darren Bravo, and Lendl Simmons must take the responsibilities of the batting department. Sikandar Raza, Tim Siefert, and Colin Munro are also in good form and can put the Riders to the next level of this tournament. Khary Pierre, Fawad Ahmed, and Sunil Narine will be handling the spin bowling department while Jayden Seales and Ali Khan will be leading the fast bowling department of the Knight Riders.
