BAR vs TKR Dream11 Prediction: Barbados Tridents vs Trinbago Knight Riders – 29 August 2020 (Trinidad)
Barbados Tridents will take on Trinbago Knight Riders in the League Match of CPL 2020 aka Caribbean Premier League which will be played at the Queens Park Oval in Trinidad. The T20 cricket is finally back on the T20 land of the Caribbean after the COVID-19 heartbreak.
Barbados Tridents have just won two of their five games till now but the surface of this match will definitely assist them as they have four brilliant spinners in their ranks but the batting has been the weak point of the side and this track will make it harder for them.
Trinbago Knight Riders have won all of their games till now in the tournament and have found a new hero in almost every game. They are the most stable side of the tournament and would definitely like to continue their good momentum in this game as well.
Pitch Report – The pitch at Queen’s Park Oval is not great for batting as the average 1st innings score here is just 159.

5 Must-Have Players in the Squad
Sunil Narine, Rashid Khan, Colin Munro, Darren Bravo, and Johnson Charles.
BAR vs TKR Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Johnson Charles (Price 9.5) will be the wicket-keeper of our squad. He will be the best pick in the keeping category and has scored 118 runs so far in the tournament. Seifert is a good option but he will play in the lower middle-order.
BAR vs TKR Dream11 Batsmen
Lendl Simmons (Price 9.5), Colin Munro (Price 9), and Darren Bravo (Price 8.5) will be our batsmen from the Knights. Munro and Bravo are in a brilliant form with the bat with Munro scoring 133 runs in 5 games and Bravo scoring 147 runs in 5 games. Both of them are genuine match-winners of the team. Simmons is just being picked to complete the mandatory 3 batsmen quota of the side as no other batsman can get compared with Simmons on paper.
BAR vs TKR Dream11 All-Rounders
Sunil Narine (Price 10.5) will be our all-rounder from the Knights. Sunil is a T20 superstar and has scored two half-centuries in the tournament till now. He has scored 111 runs in just 3 games so far. Narine has also picked 4 wickets with the ball and he is expected to play this game after missing the last couple of games.
Jason Holder (Price 9.5), Micthell Santner (Price 9), and Kyle Mayers (Price 8) will be our all-rounders from the Patriots. Holder has played well in the tournament so far and has scored 1116 runs in the tournament so far. He has picked four wickets as well and will continue to bowl in the powerplay overs whereas Mayers is the 2nd highest run-scorer of the tournament with 161 runs till now and has been bowling really well as well. Santner will be a wildcard on these slow tracks and has picked four wickets till now in the tournament. This trio has to be picked.
BAR vs TKR Dream11 Bowlers
F Ahmed (Price 8.5) and Khary Pierre (Price 8) will be our bowlers from Knights. The pitch will assist the spinners and both of them are really good at their job. Pierre was absolutely brilliant in the last game and has picked 5 wickets in the last three games whereas Ahmed has been bowling really well but he is not getting a lot of wickets. Both of these spinners will play a crucial role here in this game.
Rashid Khan (Price 9.5) will be our bowler from Tridents. Rashid is the best T20 bowler of the World and has picked seven wickets till now in the tournament. He has been bowling really well and will be a genuine threat on this wicket for sure.
Match Prediction: Trinbago Knight Riders will be the favourites to win this game.
