The fifth match of the Caribbean Premier League 2019 will be played between Trinbago Knight Riders and St Lucia Zouks at the Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain in Trinidad.


Trinbago Knight Riders comprehensively beat Jamaica Tallawahs in their last match by 22 runs. In their match against Tallawahs, the opening partnership of Lendl Simmons and John Webster did not click.

The Knight Riders sent in Sunil Narine at one drop which is unusual but the fact that Simmons was dismissed in the second over helped Narine make use of the batting powerplay, something which comes naturally to him.

On the back of a half-century from Webster and handy contributions from Denesh Ramdin and Kieron Pollard, Trinbago Knight Riders posted 191 runs on the board. Sunil Narine and Jimmy Neesham then picked up two wickets each to restrict the Jamaica Tallawahs short of the target.

Saint Lucia Zouks lost their first match against Guyana Amazon Warriors by 13 runs. Although the Zouks bowlers restricted Amazon Warriors to 155, their batting let them down as the entire team could only manage 142; Rahkeem Cornwall and Najibullah Zadran being their leading batsman.

Trinbago Knight Riders beat St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the Caribbean Premier League 2019 opener by 11 runs and successive wins hold them in good stead for this encounter.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Trinbago Knight Riders- Lendl Simmons, Sunil Narine, Denesh Ramdin, Kieron Pollard, James Neesham, Seekkuge Prasanna, Tion Webster, Khary Pierre, Anderson Phillip, Javon Searles, Mohammad Hasnain

St Lucia Zouks- Rahkeem Cornwall, Najibullah Zadran, Andre Fletcher, Andre McCarthy, Christopher Barnwell, Thisara Perera, Daren Sammy, Kesrick Williams, Krishmar Santokie, Obed McCoy, Fawad Ahmed
