Trinbago Knight Riders meet desperate Tridents

TRINBAGO Knight Riders will aim to end the preliminary stage of the 2017 Hero Caribbean Premier League with a win against Barbados Tridents at Kensington Oval in Barbados, at 9 pm, tonight.

Knight Riders have an unassailable lead at the top of the standings with 16 points after earning eight wins and one loss. Knight Riders will also welcome Shadab Khan back into the squad after the Pakistani had to return to Pakistan briefly for fitness and medical tests. The Tridents are in a keen contest with the Guyana Amazon Warriors to earn the fourth and final spot of the knockout phase.

Knight Riders will face the second placed team in qualifier one at Brian Lara Cricket Academy (BLCA) in Tarouba, on Tuesday, from 8 pm. Either Jamaica Tallawahs or St Kitts and Nevis Patriots will finish in second position. Last night, Tallawahs were hoping to seal second place with a victory over Amazon Warriors in Jamaica.

The winner of qualifier one will qualify for the September 9 final at 9 pm. On Wednesday from 8 pm, the eliminator between the third place and fourth place teams will take place. The winner will play the loser of qualifier one in qualifier two on Thursday at 8 pm for a place in the final. All matches in the second phase of the tournament will be played at BLCA.
