Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) will take on Barbados Royals (BR) in match 4 of Caribbean Premier League 2021 at Warner Park, St Kitts on Saturday, August 28.
TKR vs BR Dream11 prediction
Both TKR and BR will play their second game of the tournament at Warner Park in St Kitts. TKR are the defending champions and boast some T20 stalwarts in their squad.
BR have rejigged their squad this season after a disappointing CPL 2020 campaign. They will look to build some early momentum this year but will have their task cut out against a settled TKR team that will be the favourites for this encounter.
TKR vs BR Dream11 team tips for Caribbean Premier League 2021
Top tip: Best batsman
Lendl Simmons of TKR was the top run-getter in CPL 2020. Simmons scored 356 runs in 11 matches and was a mainstay in TKR’s batting lineup. The 36-year-old will look to carry his form into the new season and help TKR get a brisk start at the top of the order. At 9 credits, Simmons is a worthy pick.
Top tip: Best bowler
Hayden Walsh Jr. of BR will be a great pick from the bowlers' section. The 29-year-old has been in prolific form over the last few months and will be a big threat to the TKR batting order. The West Indian international recently picked a fifer against Australia at home and was the top wicket-taker in the five-match T20I series against the Aussies with 12 wickets.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Kieron Pollard of TKR will be the top all-rounder for this contest. The Trinidadian has an abundance of experience in T20 cricket with 550 matches, 297 wickets and over 10,000 runs. The 34-year-old is lethal at the backend of the innings with the bat and can use the long handle to good effect. At 10 credits, Pollard is a must-have pick.
Amongst the wicket-keepers, Glenn Phillips of BR will be a valuable pick at 9.5 credits. The 24-year-old was one of the top run-getters in the 2020 CPL edition with 316 runs from 11 matches. Phillips has been in sublime form over the last few months and was among the leading run-scorers in the Vitality Blast and the 100-ball League.
TKR vs BR probable playing XI
TKR playing XI (probable): Lendl Simmons, Sunil Narine, Darren Bravo, Colin Munro, Kieron Pollard (captain), Denesh Ramdin (wicket-keeper), Isuru Udana, Yasir Shah, Khary Pierre, Jayden Seales, Ali Khan
BR playing XI (probable): Johnson Charles (wicket-keeper), Glenn Phillips, Kyle Mayers, Shai Hope, Jason Holder (captain), Azam Khan, Thisara Perera, Hayden Walsh Jr, Mohammad Amir, Ashley Nurse, Oshane Thomas
