Trinbago Knight Riders are second on the points table with four victories and one loss. Their only loss came in the last match where they lost to St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in a super over. Their batsmen have performed consistently for the team, but bowlers have failed to chip in with wickets and control their economy.

In the last match, Batting first Riders gave a target of 217 to Patriots with the help of 90-run knock from Lendl Simmons. In defence, Anderson Phillip took three wicket-haul while Ali Khan struck twice to tally the scores ultimately. And in the super over, Riders crumbled in front of Brathwaite’s brilliance and lost quickly. They will hope to bounce back tomorrow and defeat Zouks at their home ground.

St Lucia Zouks are second last on the CPL 2019 points table with only one win in five matches. Their batsmen have failed to perform consistently and support their bowlers who have put their best effort to restrict the opponent. They were defeated by Barbados Tridents by 71 runs yesterday.

Bowling first, Pace duo of Kesrick Williams and Obed Mccoy bowled good spells taking five scalps among them to restrict Tridents at 172. Chasing the target, Batsmen continued their poor run and collapsed on 101 runs. Colin De Grandhomme and Hardus Viljoen were the only positives with bat scoring 28 and 31 runs respectively. They will hope for a disciplined effort from batsmen tomorrow and defeat well-balanced Trinbago Knight Riders.
