CPL 2021: Trinbago Knight Riders vs St Lucia Kings- Prediction, Who Will Win The Match? Trinbago Knight Riders face off Saint Lucia Kings in the first semi-final of CPL 2021 on Tuesday. Trinbago Knight Riders finished at the top of the table at the end of the league stage matches. They have managed to win 6 games out of 10. In their last five matches, the Knight Riders have secured wins on 4 occasions.
They won their last game against St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots by 4 wickets. The bowlers restricted the opposition to 147 in the first innings. Ali Khan accounted for three vital wickets, while Isuru Udana picked 2 for 28 in his 4 overs. Akeal Hosein was also brilliant for his figures of 1 for 24 in 4 overs.
St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots didn’t let the Knight Riders chase down the total easily. Trinbago Knight Riders had lost 3 wickets for just 52 runs after 9 overs. Keiron Pollard, the skipper, however, took on himself and played a heart-warming 51-run knock off just 22 balls, including 3 fours and 5 sixes. Later, Isuru Udana played a well-compiled 25-run cameo to guide the team home in 19 overs.
Ahead of the important fixture against St. Lucia, Pollard will, once again, have a big responsibility on his shoulder as far as scoring runs is concerned. Lendl Simmons is an integral part of the batting unit. He has played a couple of good knocks in the tournament. He would be hoping to end the tournament on a high. Besides, Colin Munro’s great run with the bat should keep the team confident of a win on Tuesday. Ravi Rampaul picked one wicket in the last game. He has consistently picked wickets this season and one could expect him to take at least a couple in the next game.
Saint Lucia, on the other hand, are sitting at the fourth spot on the table. They are coming off a defeat at the hands of Barbados Royals. Faf du Plessis didn’t play the last game but despite that, St. Lucia Kings managed to score a massive 190-run total in the first innings. Making his comeback in the side, Rahkeem Cornwall sent the bowlers to a leather hunt in the first six overs.
He went after the bowlers right from the onset and went on to score 40 runs off 26 balls. Roston Chase continued his fine form with the bat as he smashed his fourth half-century this season. He scored 46 off 38 balls.
However, despite posting such a huge score, Barbados Royals chased it down with 7 balls left in the game. Kyle Mayers and Glenn Phillips scored runs all across the ground as the duo added 154 runs for the third wicket. Mayers scored an unbeaten 81-run knock-off 62 balls, while Glenn Phillips remained unbeaten at 80 off 39. The Saint Lucia Kings would look to forget the last game and approach the next game with a lot of self-belief.
