Probable Playing XIs
Trinbago Knight Riders had a disappointing outing in the last game as their batting-order faced collected failure. Sunil Narine and Colin Munro got a start at the top but failed to convert it into big knocks. Lendl Simmons got out on golden duck so he will be keen to bounce back in this match. Kieron Pollard will be the main all-rounder along with. Isuru Udana. The bowling department was outstanding so they are likely to remain the same in this match.
Chandwick Walton got injured during the batting but he is expected to be fit for this match. Kennar Lewis and Haider Ali will be the main batters at the top for Tallawahs. Carlos Braithwaite scored 27 runs so he gained some confidence with the bat. Andrew Russell and Rovman Powell will be key all-rounders in this match. The bowlers had performed well so they are unlikely to make any changes in the bowling department.

Trinbago Knight Riders lost their last encounter in super over but they have all capabilities to bounce back in this match. Although Jamaica is at a higher position in the points table Knight Riders will start as favorites in this match.
Batsmen: Lendl Simmons and Colin Munro both can be selected from the batting section. Simmons got out earlier in the last couple of matches but he is the consistent performer for Knight Riders. Colin Munro scored 32 runs in the last game. Kennar Lewis is the second-highest run-scorer (160) in this season. Rovman Powell can be picked as the fourth batsman in this match.
Wicket-Keepers: Tim Seifert scored 119 runs in five games and he is also very consistent with his glove-work so he will be the best wicket-keeping option in this match.
All-rounders: Kieron Pollard scored 123 runs for Knight Riders this season. Pollard is also bowling a couple of overs. Sunil Narine bowled an outstanding spell in the last game and also scored nearly 25 runs at the top. Andrew Russell is the automatic choice in this all-rounder section.
Bowlers: Ravi Rampaul picked 13 wickets in five games and he is also the highest wicket-taker in this season. Akeal Hussain picked six wickets for Knight Riders so he can be picked in your fantasy team. Migael Pretorius is the second-highest wicket-taker with 10 wickets in four outings.
Fantasy Team: Lendl Simmons, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert, Kennar Lewis, Rovman Powell, Kieron Pollard, Andrew Russell(c), Sunil Narine(VC), Ravi Rampaul, Akeal Hussain, Migael Pretorius.
Captain – Andrew Russell
The most attacking all-rounder will be a player to watch out for in this game. Andrew Russell got dismissed earlier in the last game but the power-hitter will be keen to put up a show against Knight Riders.
Vice-Captain – Sunil Narine
Sunil Narine scored 21 runs and bowled the most economical spell in the last game so he can be picked as vice-captain against Tallawahs.
