Barbados Tridents were comprehensively beaten by Guyana Amazon Warriors in the first semi-final encounter of CPL 2019 but the Jason Holder-led side could face them again if they can overcome the reigning champions at a ground where the latter has lifted both of their CPL trophies. For Kieron Pollard’s men, it would not just be their title defence but also a revenge for the successive defeats against Barbados Tridents in the league stage.
Holder’s side were torn apart by Brandon King – who scored 132 from just 72 deliveries – in the first qualifier but the presence of Hayden Walsh and Harry Gurney would give them much-needed confidence. Meanwhile, take a look at what should be the best picks for the Dream11 fantasy team for the Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Tridents match.
Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Tridents – Dream11 Team Prediction – Wicket-Keepers:
You can select as many as four wicket-keepers in your Dream11 fantasy team as per the latest rules. Dinesh Ramdin and Shai Hope are the two first-choice wicketkeepers for Trinbago Knight Riders and Barbados Tridents but it will be wise to choose Johnson Charles. Charles, who plays as a specialist batsman for Barbados Tridents is the fourth-highest run-scorer in CPL 2019 and would not just give your team a wicket-keeping option but will also a valuable batting option.
Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Tridents – Dream11 Team Prediction – Batsmen:
As many as six specialist batsmen can be chosen for any Dream11 team. But for this clash, three batsmen should be enough. Lendl Simmons, who is the second-highest run-scorer in CPL 2019 with 429 runs in 11 innings and an average of 42.90.
He should be the first choice for any fantasy team. All three batsman in this team will be from the defending champions. Kieron Pollard with 326 runs, 17 sixes and a strike-rate of 160 should be the second choice. Colin Munro or Darren Bravo can be the third option. One is a devastator and another brings stability
Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Tridents – Dream11 Team Prediction: All-rounders:
You can play four all-rounders in your Dream11 fantasy team. Sunil Narine and JP Duminy should be the first choice for all the teams. Narine has 100 runs, seven wickets and an economy of less than 6 economy rate. Duminy, on the other, is one of the best middle-order batsmen in T20I cricket. He also picks wickets and is a great fielder. Jason Holder and Shakib Al Hasan can be the other two picks for all the all-rounder slots. Holder is the fourth-highest wicket-taker in CPL 2019 and is also an experienced captain in international cricket.
Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Tridents – Dream11 Team Prediction: Bowlers:
The best thing about this side is that all four all-rounders can bowl well and are capable of playing as a specialist bowler in any T20I teams. With four bowling options already available, three best bowlers, who provide variety should be picked. Hayden Walsh of Barbados Tridents is the highest wicket-taker in CPL 2019. He has 19 wickets and picks wickets upfront and also at the death and should be the first choice of all fantasy teams.
His partner Harry Gurney has 9 wickets but the third-best economy rate in the tournament. Khary Pierre of Trinbago Knight Riders can be the third choice for the bowler's role. With 8 wickets and a 7.24 economy-rate, he can play second fiddle to Walsh and Gurney.
Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Tridents – Dream11 Team Prediction:
Lendl Simmons, Johnson Charles (WK), Colin Munro/Darren Bravo, Shakib Al Hasan, JP Duminy, Kieron Pollard, Jason Holder (C), Sunil Narine, Harry Gurney, Khary Pierre, Hayden Walsh.
Barbados Tridents finished second in the league phase of CPL 2019 and after a defeat to finalist Guyana Amazon Warriors in the first qualifier, they will be gunning for a victory to make it to the final. Their opponents, Trinbago Knight Riders, are two-time defending champions in the Caribbean Premier League. The encounter should make for an intriguing clash.
