Cricket Free Tips | CPL 2021, Match 23: Barbados Royals vs Trinbago Knight Riders

Trinbago Knight Riders are aiming for a hat-trick of victories when they face the Barbados Barbados Royals in the 23rd match of the CPL 2021. With two wins in seven games, the Barbados Royals are currently at the bottom of the standings. A win over the Guyana Amazon Warriors in their last match will instill a lot of confidence.

Trinbago has gained momentum after a poor start, and with the kind of team they have, stopping them will be difficult. They’ve won three of their last four games and will be looking for a fourth to take over first place in the standings. At present, Lendl Simmons, Colin Munro, Kieron Pollard, and Tim Seifert appear strong. They have some of the best bowling in the game, and if they put runs on the board on any given day, they will almost certainly win.


There’s a 10% chance of rain, which isn’t likely to cause any severe disruptions. Temperatures will be around 30°C.


We’ve seen high scores on the Warner Park surface, so it’s still ideal for batting. It has proved challenging at times, with teams folding out swiftly. Batting may not be as simple as it appears, and it won’t be easy. In the last several games, spinners have taken most wickets and will continue to play an important role.
