BR vs TKR Match Toss Prediction
All skippers have opted to field first in the 2022 CPL so far. Very few teams in any T20 tournaments want to bat first and we expect the teams to want to bowl first in this game.
BR vs TKR Pitch Report
We expect the surface to be quick in Saint Lucia but there will also be turn for the spin bowlers. Any score over 160 will be very hard to chase down in this match.
There is a risk of rain throughout the second half of this game on Wednesday morning at Gros Islet. It will be very humid from start to finish.

Barbados Royals Team News & Playing 11
BR Team News
There was one change for Barbados Royals from their opening game win over St Kitts & Nevis Patriots with South Africa’s keeper-batter Quinton de Kock coming in at the expense of West Indian international Devon Thomas. With two wins from two, we expect the same XI for this game.
BR Key Players
- Kyle Mayers – The batting all-rounder has had an excellent start to the tournament. He has scored over 100 runs and took 4-4 from his two overs against Saint Lucia Kings on Sunday.
- Jason Holder – The bowling all-rounder hit a run a ball 15 whilst handing the strike to his batting partners in the last game. He took 2-21 against St Kitts & Nevis Patriots.
- Obed McCoy – The tall and fast 25 year old left-arm bowler took 1-41 in the Royals’ opening game. He relished the strike bowler role in this side.
BR Team Form
The Royals have won both of their games in the CPL 2022 and, when you include the end of the 2021 season, have won three matches in a row.

Trinbago Knight Riders Team News & Playing 11
TKR Team News
Spinner Akeal Hosein, who took the Player of the Match with figures of 4-13 in the win over Saint Lucia Kings, missed the no-result in Match 5 through injury. Although he is expected to be back soon, we do not anticipate he will be risked in this fixture.
TKR Key Players
- Nicholas Pooran – The left-handed number three batter is one of the cleanest hitters in the West Indies. He is a naturally aggressive player.
- Sunil Narine – The all-rounder opens the batting for the Knight Riders and is also extremely dangerous with the ball. We expect him to enjoy bowling on this surface.
- Ravi Rampaul – The experienced 37 year old pace bowler has an excellent T20 record. He didn’t pick up wickets during the final three games of the 6ixty but 219 wickets in this format.
TKR Team Form
Trinbago Knight Riders had a three wicket win over Saint Lucia Kings to get their tournament underway and look to have a strong squad this year.
