Trinbago Knight Riders betting predictions 2021

Sometimes it’s not worth complicating things when it comes to betting on cricket online. And Trinbago are a case in point. You only need to look at their batting line-up to see that it’s practically a ‘who’s who’ of top-class T20 batsmen.

The likes of skipper Kieron Pollard and Lendl Simmons will certainly be in the Windies T20 side at the World Cup. Darren Bravo and Denesh Ramdin probably won’t because their ship has sailed.

But Bravo has played over 200 times for his country across all formats, while Ramdin has played closer to 300. So you can see what sort of class and experience we’re talking about here.

Colin Munro has four domestic T20 centuries and a further three playing for New Zealand; Zimbabwean Sikandar Raza has three ODI centuries and one Test one to his name, albeit none in this format. So we’re talking about one of the best batting line-ups in the franchise game.

The bowling isn’t quite so strong, but it’s strong enough. Then add the fact they’re captained by the same man (Pollard) who skippers the Windies in ODIs and T20Is.

And not only did they win it last season but they won it without losing a single match. You can see why they’re not only the team to beat, but are going to be remarkably hard to beat.

And why we think they could go on and win it again.

Here, you will find all of the matches that the Trinbago Knight Riders are playing in throughout the whole Caribbean Premier League 2021. You’ll also find our expert cricket betting tips on these games too – all completely free for you!

Historic performances in the CPL

No team in the CPL is more successful than the Knight Riders, who have won four titles out of the eight that have been up for grabs. They were victorious in 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2020.

There’s a curious quirk to their success, too. They won every one of the finals they played. On the one hand, it means they had four seasons where they didn’t make the final at all. On the other hand, it means that once they get to the final, they go on to win it. If you enjoy Caribbean Premier League betting then you’ll know that they are a good choice to keep this trend of winning going!

Crown to represent the Captain of the Trinbago Knight Riders

Captain: Kieron Pollard

You can easily make a case for Pollard being one of the Top 3 T20 players of all time.

His power-hitting with the bat at the death is unparalleled, his fielding exceptional and when in the mood, his brand of slow medium pace is of both economical and of the wicket-taking variety.

With the bat, there has probably never been a player who has single-handedly won more tight games at the death in a chase in T20 cricket than Pollard.

He’s proved a good captain rather than an exceptional one so far. But he did win the CPL as skipper at the first time of asking last year.

Trophy to represent the Gun player for the Trinbago Knight Riders in the CPL

Key Player: Lendl Simmons

As mentioned in our ultimate top batsman betting guide, in T20 there’s no substitute for a consistent opening batsman who scores his runs quickly and gets his team off to a brisk start.

So we give you, Lendl Simmons. His long T20 career has produced an incredible 58 fifties at domestic level and a further nine at international level, to go with a domestic century.

He’s a slight man but has far more power than you’d think. After all, he’s hit over 800 sixes in this format alone.

This was the man who virtually won the 2016 semi-final against India single-handedly and who at 36, still has plenty of runs left to score.

Medal to represent the game changer for the Trinbago Knight Riders in the CPL

Game-Changer: Sunil Narine

Even Narine himself would admit he’s no longer the bowler that he was. He doesn’t’ bowl it as quick, he doesn’t spin it as much, he doesn’t bowl as many varieties as he used to.

But he’s still a menace on turning pitches and even though he doesn’t take quite as many wickets anymore, his brilliant economy rate can stop teams in their tracks.

He’s unlikely to be used as an opening batsman this year but the choice is there, if they want it.

Trinbago Knight Riders FAQs
