The Barbados Tridents and Trinbago Knight Riders, two teams competing for what would be the fourth and final playoff spot in the 2018 Caribbean Premier League T20 cricket season, will face off in the 18th match of the current CPL. The Tridents are playing in front of their home fans and Trinbago have sat idle for the past week, according to The Stats Zone. The Tridents go into the match as favorites to win their third game in five attempts in the contest that will live stream from Bridgetown.
The Tridents are coming off a heartbreaking loss on Saturday to the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots, as CricInfo reported. That game saw a record-setting CPL economy rate in four overs bowled by Pakistan international Mohammad Irfan. But West Indies B team international Brandon King recorded 60 runs off 49 balls to lead the Patriots to victory with seven balls remaining, and King’s own maiden half-century in the CPL.
Irfan was devastating his four overs, permitting only a single run and taking the wickets of two of the Patriots top batsmen in West Indies internationals, Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis, per CricInfo.
But the Tridents will need more economical numbers from the other members of the bowling corps to overcome the Knight Riders’ batting attack on Sunday.
