Trinbago Knight Riders are the defending champions of the CPL and the team has played like one thus far. With victories in both their matches, the Kieron Pollard-led unit is at the top of the points table. Even as their batting has been a tad jittery, it’s the bowling that has stepped up. Their last victory came against the Jamaica Tallawahs by 22 runs at the Queen’s Pak Oval in Trinidad.
Now the Knights are set to play their third match this season at home, this time versus the St Lucia Zouks and it’s a day-game. As far as head to head is concerned, TKR has won nine out of 11 matches against the opponent. St Lucia last beat the Knight Riders back in 2016. The Zouks lost their opening game versus last year’s runners-up Guyana Amazon Warriors and will be keen to make a comeback.
