CPL 2020 Match 27, Cricdaddy Match Live Updates: The Trinbago Knight Riders have been undefeated throughout the CPL 2020 tournament sponsored by Fun88. They will surely end at the top of the points table and will be playing relaxed in the remaining games. The Zouks, on the other hand, have also qualified for the play-offs with 5 win in 8 matches yet so far. Both of the teams will be playing this match as a practice game before the semi-finals as they might encounter each other in the knockout stage of the tournament. Win in this game will definitely be a psychological advantage for any of the teams.
Date: 05 September (Saturday)
Venue: Brian Lara Cricket Academy, Trinidad and Tobago
Pitch Condition: Weather is a grave concern regarding this match as there is a lot of rain in Trinidad. The rain might wash off the game as it has done earlier. If the game is played, the pitch will be very slow and will help spinners to turn the ball. Batting will be really difficult on this slow pitch and a total of around 140 can be very competitive.
Trinbago Knight Riders: The Riders won’t be playing their best cards in this game as they have one more game left after this one. They will be looking forward to rest their leading players and challenge their bench strength to choose the best eleven in the semi-finals. Pollard might not be playing against the Zouks but their batting line-up is still pretty strong with Darren Bravo, Munro and Simmons.
The Riders have more depth in their squad than any other side with excellent bowling performances by Sikandar Raza and Pravin Tambe. They must be experimenting with their bowlers as well as they have secured enough points to top the points table.
Expected Playing XI: LMP Simmons, Darren Bravo, Dwayne Bravo, Tim Seifert, Amir Anthony Jangoo, Pravin Tambe, Colin Munro, Sikandar Raza, Akeal Hosein, Anderson Phillip & Khary Pierre.
St Lucia Zouks: With a loss in the last game against the Guyana Warriors, the Zouks will now be looking forward to gaining their momentum back by securing a win against the top-performing team. Perhaps, they don’t have a kind of squad that can allow them to rotate their players so they might be playing with the same eleven. They have a weak batting lineup and it would require them an exceptional batting performance in the game to over-power the Riders.
Their bowling has been pretty convincing in the tournament. Mohammad Nabi will be a key player for them and we might expect some surprise from Chemar Holder as well. Riders might be the stronger looking side, but in the limited over the format of the game, a good inning can turn the table pretty surprisingly.
Expected Playing XI: DJG Sammy, ADS Fletcher, Leniko Boucher, Javelle Glen, N Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Rahkeem Cornwall, Scott Kuggeleijn, KOK Williams, Kavem Hodge & Chemar Holder.
