The skipper Rovman Powell and Alick Athanaze ensured that all the good work done by Cornwall was not wasted as they reached the target in 18.1 overs.

Dream11 Prediction

Both these teams have an equal number of points to their credit at the moment. But the Trinbago side has more firepower in their ranks. You can bet on them to win this game and improve their position in the points table. Barbados Royals have not done too badly and can easily put one across the Trinbago team though. There's not much in it.
