It’s not the first time TKR and SLZ have locked horns in the Caribbean Premier League or CPL. A Trinbago Knight Riders vs St Lucia Zouks match has always been an exciting one to watch. Both of the teams of exceptionally talented players. But when you check the overall performance and the previous records of TKR and SLZ, you will find that both teams appear to be a mismatch, with the former being the most dominant side.
There is a big reason why the Trinbago Knight Riders are viewed as a dominant side compared to St Lucia Zouks. Well, you see, Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) has already won the CPL three times, and SLZ didn’t get the chance to set foot in the finals, which is quite shocking. On the other hand, in the 2020 season, TKR has won 10 out of the 14 games they have played, and SLZ has won only 2 games. This clearly shows that SLZ, which was captained by Darren Sammy [now captained by Faf du Plessis], is lacking at some of the places. If SLZ wishes to win more games, they need to improve their performance.
During the previous games between St Lucia Zouks and Trinbago Knight Riders, several players performed exceptionally well. Andre Fletcher and Darren Sammy have been the top performers for the St Lucia Zouks, and Brendon McCullum has been the top performer for the Trinbago Knight Riders.
On the other hand, Darren Bravo, Umar Akmal, and Evin Lewis were the highest scoring players for the TKR. Lendl Simmons and Kieron Pollard are excellent players, and for the TKR vs SLZ Match in CPL 2021, fans are looking forward to their performance. People are eagerly waiting to see what Wahab Riaz and Faf du Plessis have in-store and how well they will play.
Whenever there was a St Lucia and Trinbago match taking place, the bowlers have contributed heavily. TKR’s Kevon Cooper and Dwayne Bravo have taken 14 and 19 wickets, respectively. St Lucia’s Delorn Johnson has taken 7 wickets for his team, making them the highest wicket-taker of SLZ. But currently, Dwayne Bravo sits on top as the highest wicket-taker within the entire tournament. But during a TKR vs SLZ Match in CPL 2021, bowlers like Sunil Narine can pick up wickets with his mysterious bowling technique. Sunil is currently playing for Trinbago and is pretty much fired up to show off his act.
Compared to last season, this year, the matches between TKR and SLZ will be a lot more exciting. Both teams are looking more robust than before, and some of them have players who have been known as legends within the cricketing world. It will be exciting to see how both teams will perform during the 2021 Caribbean Premier League.
