TKR vs BR Match Prediction - Sep 13, 2022

The Trinbagio Knight Riders had assembled what seemed like an all-star team ahead of CPL 2022 but things have not quite gone to plan. TKR sits at the bottom of the standings with just one win from four matches (one of those matches was rained out). It will now take on the Barbados Royals who sit at the very top of the table with five wins from five matches.

The CPL itself is structured in a way that teams can qualify for the playoffs with just a couple of wins so all is not lost for TKR. Surprisingly, the cricket betting sites still have TKR as the favorite against the Royals in this match. 

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for TKR vs BR CPL 2022. The match will be played at the Queen's Park Oval, Trinidad on the 13th of September 2022. 

TKR vs BR Team Previews

Trinbago Knight Riders

TKR has not been able to get its act together so far. Having some of the best T20 players in the world available to play for it seems to have complicated matters instead of simplifying them. Kieron Pollard is batting too low and is perhaps past his best, Sunil Narine as an opener is not a surprise to opposition teams anymore, and the bowling lineup is a bit weak. 

TKR seems to be banking on past reputations rather than current players while picking its team. 

Tion Webster, Colin Munro, and even Andre Russell have not been at their best so far. The names on the roster are undoubtedly valuable but the performances do not justify the kind of premium that the bookmakers are charging for them. 

The bowling unit revolves around Sunil Narine, who has been his brilliant self with the ball, but the rest of the bowling is underwhelming.

Barbados Royals

Barbados Royals continue to go from strength to strength and remain unbeaten in CPL 2022. Obed McCoy picked up three wickets and was supported by Kyle Mayers, Jason Holder, and the rest of the attack as the Royals restricted the Tallawahs to just 156. 

In response, Quinton de Kock and Corbin Bosch scored fifties to get the team close before David Miller provided the finishing blows. 

The fact that there are so many players for the Royals in prime form makes the team very dangerous. Kyle Mayers, David Miller, and Quinton de Kock with the bat are more dangerous than the big names we find in the TKR lineup. More importantly, the bowling lineup of the Royals also seems like a good match for the TKR batters.

Pitch and Conditions

This will be the first match that is played in Trinidad. The Queen's Park Oval is generally a bit spin-friendly and slow in nature. Run-scoring is more of a challenge than the other venues we have been seeing although the pitch should not slow up too much until a few matches are played on it. 

A score of around 155-165 should be seen as par. 

TKR vs BR Betting Tips

The odds available for Barbados Royals are too good to pass on. They are being offered at better than 2x return even when they are taking on the bottom-placed team on the table. With more players in prime form, we are happy to back the Barbados Royals. With such good odds to start out with, you can probably hedge your bets with in-play betting if required. 

Bet on the Barbados Royals to win.
