Caribbean Premier League 2022: Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Royals –Match 16 Preview and Updates

Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Royals – The CPL 2022 will now be held in Trinidad, and the Knight Riders should expect a change in fortunes as a result. The TKR batting lineup is worried after failing to chase down 154 runs in a venue where teams batting second have an advantage.

After winning their first match of the season, TKR won the toss and chose to bowl, failing once with the ball and twice with the bat. Such form when facing a team that has won five straight games is concerning.

Given the venue for the next leg of the CPL 2022, the Knight Riders may have the home advantage, but their out-of-form batting lineup makes things difficult wherever they play.

Barbados Royals have used seven bowlers in their last three matches, with five of them taking wickets every time. The Royals completely outplayed the Knight Riders the last time these two teams met.

The 16th Match of Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Royals will take place on September 14th, 2022 at Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad.

Trinbago Knight Riders (Match Odds – 1.75):


Looking at the TKR squad, it is shocking that the four-time CPL champions are at the bottom of the points table. With only one win, two losses, and a match that ended in a draw, Knight Riders are in desperate need of a win to build momentum going forward in the league.

The middle order, which includes Colin Munro, Tim Seifert, and Nicholas Pooran, was expected to deliver match-winning knocks due to their experience and abilities. If that wasn’t enough, the lower order is also strong, with players like Andre Russell and Kieron Pollard known for their finishing abilities.

Despite such a strong batting order, the opposition has always managed to get through. The batting woes were evident in the first game, in which TKR successfully chased down a total.

The bowlers may bowl some inspiring spells with regular breakthroughs and even limit a strong opponent like the Barbados Royals to a par total. However, if TKR is to win their second game of the season, they must mount a batting comeback. This team’s wicket-takers are Rampaul and Narine, while Khary Pierre and Russell will need to improve their bowling.

Full Squad:

Tion Webster, Sunil Narine, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert(w), Nicholas Pooran, Andre Russell, Kieron Pollard(c), Khary Pierre, Ravi Rampaul, Daryn Dupavillon, Shaaron Lewis, Seekkuge Prasanna, Akeal Hosein, Anderson Phillip, Ali Khan, Terrance Hinds, Leonardo Julien, Jayden Seales, Maheesh Theekshana

Players to watch out for:

Colin Munro

The 35-year-old New Zealander scored one four and two sixes in Saturday’s game. In Trinidad, he should benefit from the quick wicket.

Sunil Narine

The 34-year-old bowling all-rounder has opened the batting but has had no success in the tournament. His spin bowling has been excellent, with figures of 2-11 in the most recent game.

Ravi Rampaul

Despite being expensive in Match 12, the experienced right arm fast medium bowler picked up three wickets, including both of Jamaica Tallawahs openers.

Possible Playing XI:

Tion Webster, Sunil Narine, Colin Munro, Nicholas Pooran, Tim Seifert (wk), Shaaron Lewis, Kieron Pollard (c), Andre Russell, Khary Pierre, Ravi Rampaul, Akeal Hossein

Barbados Royals (Match Odds – 2.10):


The Royals, who finished last in the points table the previous year, have completely turned things around. They lead the table this season with 5 wins from 5 games and are the favourites to win the CPL 2022 title.

Their recent run-chase demonstrated outstanding maturity from their middle-order batters. After losing an early wicket in the run chase against the Jamaica Tallawahs, Quinton de Kock and Corbin Bosch put on a steady 117-run partnership. Halfway through the innings, these two had effectively eliminated the opposition, with only 76 runs required off the final 10 overs and 9 wickets in hand.

Corbin Bosch has hit a home run in each of the last two innings. The top four players in the Barbados Royals lineup have consistently produced results for the Royals. Except for Azam Khan, the rest of the top-order appears to be in good form. At number four, David Miller is a viable option, with Khan following him at number five.

The lower order includes some power hitters who can step up when the team needs a finisher. Lower down the order, Jason Holder has played some good quick knocks, while Devon Thomas hasn’t had many opportunities to play given how the top and middle order have scored the majority of runs for the Barbados Royals.

The bowling is in excellent condition, with 5 of their 7 bowling options producing consistent results. In the Royals’ bowling attack, keep an eye out for Kyle Mayers, Jason Holder, and Obed McCoy.

Full Squad:

Kyle Mayers, Quinton de Kock(w), Corbin Bosch, David Miller(c), Azam Khan, Jason Holder, Devon Thomas, Hayden Walsh, Joshua Bishop, Obed McCoy, Oshane Thomas, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Nyeem Young, Ramon Simmonds, Teddy Bishop, Harry Tector, Rahkeem Cornwall, Justin Greaves

Players to watch out for:

Kyle Mayers

The left-handed opening batter made only 12 pitches in his final two innings but struck out six and four. He had earlier taken Brandon King out with the ball in the first over.

Quinton de Kock

The South African keeper-form batter’s has steadily improved in recent months. In the previous game, he made 64 not out from 53 balls.

Obed McCoy

The left-arm pace bowler impressed against the Jamaica Tallawahs. He dismissed top scorer Rovman Powell, Fabian Allen, and Chris Green.

Possible Playing XI:

Kyle Mayers, Quinton de Kock (wk), Corbin Bosch, Azam Khan, David Miller (c), Jason Holder, Devon Thomas, Hayden Walsh, Joshua Bishop, Obed McCoy, Oshane Thomas
