1. Team News - Trinbago Knight Riders
The Knight Riders on a hot, unbeaten streak that has lasted five matches so far. They have swept aside sides with ease, and even the absence of an impact player like Sunil Narine did not hamper them. Dwayne Bravo, who grabbed his 500th T20 wicket, Darren Bravo, who hammered his 100th T20 six, Tim Seifert etc have carried the team lightly on their shoulders. But they would not like to leave anything for chances against a side like Tridents, who carry good firepower despite the recent inconsistent run. Kharry Pierre took three wickets against Guyana Amazon Warriors in the last match so that the absence of Narine was negated in the CPL 2020 match.
2. Team News - Barbados Tridents
The defending champions is going through a turbulent run in the CPL 2020. The Tridents are still in the top four but it cannot be overlooked that they had lost three matches in a row. They managed to stem the rot with a win over Jamaica Tallawahs in their last game but need a much more organized effort against the red-hot Knight Riders. They will require some big outings from players like Rashid Khan, Johnson Charles, Shai Hope etc to turn the tide against Knight Riders.
