Match Predictions and Betting Odds
We are into the final phase of the 2021 season of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and Barbados Royals (formerly, Barbados Tridents) take on Trinbago Knight Riders in the 23rd match of the tournament.
Barbados Royals haven’t had the best of runs in this competition. The two-time champions (2014 and 2019) have been very inconsistent in the last few years and their inconsistency has continued in this season as well. They’ve finished fifth and sixth in four out of the last five seasons and they are staring at another bottom-two finish if they don’t turn things around. They have won just one game out of the six so far and are reeling at the bottom of the points table. Be it with both bat or ball, Barbados Royals just haven’t been able to step up. The batting has been iffy while the bowling hasn’t really come to the party either. They now need to win almost every game from hereon if they need to stand a chance of qualifying for the knockouts.
On the other hand, Trinbago Knight Riders haven’t been at their best either. They have blown hot and cold throughout this tournament. In fact, the defending and four-time champions have lost and won alternately. Overall, from six games, Trinbago Knight Riders have three wins and as many losses so far and they are currently third on the points table. While the Knight Riders have been excellent with the ball, the batting has been quite inconsistent. They will be in search of some consistency. A couple of more wins will ensure them a place in the knockouts.
Despite the inconsistent run of Trinbago Knight Riders, they will start this game as favourites. Barbados Royals’ poor form also plays a part in that. They have the winning odds of 1.78 while Barbados Tridents (Royals) have their odds placed at 2.04 to win this game.
This is the second game of the season between these two sides. Earlier, Trinbago Knight Riders recorded a comfortable win as they first bowled Barbados Tridents (Royals) out for 122 before chasing it down in 16.5 overs.
The rivalry between Trinbago Knight Riders and Barbados Tridents (Royals) is in the favour of the former. Trinbago Knight Riders have won 11 games and Barbados Tridents (Royals) have won seven. Trinbago Knight Riders won the first game of this ongoing season between these two sides.
