Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Tridents Betting Tips 28/08/2021

Teams Status

Trinbago Knight Riders

After their flawless campaign of last year, Trinbago Knight Riders got a rude awakening this time around, as they lost their 2021 campaign’s opening game to Guyana Amazon Warriors.

What’s surprising is that the target of 143 was not that steep and the formidable batting unit of Trinbago still failed to get to it.

Granted that the surface was not easy to bat on but a side boasting all international players should still have chased it down.

Trinbago’s culprits, as indicated, were obviously their batters – five of whom got starts but none scored more than 28 (Denesh Ramdin).

The upset must jold Trinbago’s system but that does not mean that they are still not better than all the other teams.

Barbados Tridents

Like the Knight Riders, Barbados Tridents also started their 2021 campaign with a defeat, with their conquerors being St Kitts and Nevis Patriots – the tournament’s sole hosts.

The defeat would hurt them too, especially after they had St Kitts pinned at 4-39 in the eighth over and still allowed a sizable total of 175.

Barbados’ batting unit looks thin and unpredictable, which means that their bowlers cannot afford to relent and allow big totals.

They’d have to be on their best behavior against a Trinbago side that has had its pride take a hit in their opening game and would be eager to pounce on an opportunity to bounce back like a cornered tiger.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Trinbago Knight Riders to win @ 1.575

From what we were given a demonstration of, the Trinbago side of 2021 can be beaten. However, we have serious doubts that a side like Barbados can do that. Besides, Trinbago would now tighten up their ship, having been given a wakeup call. It’s a chalk play at odds of 1.575 but we suggest that risk be taken. The play can be found on any of 22Bet, 1xBet and MelBet.

Tip: Trinbago top batsman – Colin Munro @ 3.74

In the opening match, Colin Munro had looked in good form and struck two sixes despite facing just seven balls for his score of 13. Unfortunately, he was caught but during his short time at the crease he proved his intention and gave a sign of things to come. We think he can be the Knight Riders’ best batter in this game. The play can be found on 22Bet.


It’s no secret that Trinbago have the best squad in all of CPL. And if it was a secret that Barbadian batting is just so-so, it is not anymore. We think Trinbago get the job done here.
