1. Semifinal 1 - TKR vs SLK
The Knight Riders made a slow beginning to the CPL 2021 as the Patriots did the early running. But under the able captaincy of Kieron Pollard, the four-time champions made a strong comeback to top of the league table. On the other hand, St Lucia Kings never really made it to the top 2 but always kept themselves on No 4 and in the hunt for a semifinal berth with some consistent efforts.
2. Match prediction - Semifinal 1
The Kings are certainly a worthy team but the Knight Riders offer them a tough task. They are a battle-hardened team who has been together for a while now. They know how to win the big moments and that experience makes them a frontrunner in the first semifinal.
3. Semifinal 2 - SKNP vs GAW
The Warriors entered the CPL 2021 semifinal as the second placed team in the league stage. They have been a revelation in CPL2021 with stars like Imran Tahir making hefty contributions and they are a certain title contender. The Patriots, on the other hand, made a fabulous start to the CPL 2021 winning four games in a row and the runaway table-topper. But a mid-tournament slump pushed them down to No 3 but never in danger of missing the semifinals.
4. Match prediction - Semifinal 2
They look quite the similar force in CPL 2021 but Warriors seemed to have peaked at the right time and they have that slight edge.
