Barbados Royals vs Trinbago Knight Riders – CPL Betting Tips

Barbados Royals will face Trinbago Knight Riders in match 23 of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021 at the Warner Park, Basseterre in St Kitts on Thursday. 

The home team will come in this fixture in a desperate state after managing to gather just four points after the first seven matches. 

Therefore, the team management will be hoping to see the players lift their game in a must-win encounter. 

On the other hand, the Knight Riders are in a much better state as they currently have eight points after seven matches. 

The management will be hoping that the players will continue to perform like the way they’ve done so far in the competition. 

In the match between the teams earlier in the tournament, it was Trinbago who came out on top with a six-wicket margin, courtesy of sublime bowling performance from former Sri Lanka pacer Isuru Udana.

Barbados Royals are coming into Thursday’s match knowing that they cannot afford to put a foot wrong in the remaining matches to keep their hopes alive of cementing a spot in the playoffs this season.

Therefore, it is likely that the Royals will go in with the same playing XI in their match against the Knight Riders.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of former Pakistan’s left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir, right-arm fast-bowler Oshane Thomas, Holder, Perera along with the spin duo of Hayden Walsh and Nurse to produce timely breakthroughs.

Our Tipsters Angle

Both teams are coming in the match after securing a win in their previous outing. But their position on the league table is very contrasting as the Royals are desperate for a good result to stay alive in the race for the playoffs whereas the Knight Riders are just one win away from cementing their spot in the last-four. 

On paper, both teams look very competitive but Holder’s men have found it hard to keep the momentum going.

On the other hand, the defending champions, who have won two in a row, are looking in a lethal form and therefore, the prediction is for Pollard’s men to secure a win on Thursday.
