BR vs. TKR Match Toss Prediction
So far in the 2022 CPL, every skipper has chosen to field first. Very few teams in T20 events prefer to bat first. Thus, online cricket betting predictions experts anticipate that the teams will prefer to bowl in this game first.
BR vs. TKR Pitch Report
We expect a speedy surface in Saint Lucia, but there will also be a turn for spin bowlers. It will be difficult to overturn a score of 160 in this game.
The second half of this game on Wednesday morning at Gros Islet could be affected by rain, and the entire time will be exceedingly muggy.

The Barbados Royals made one change from their victory over St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the first game, replacing West Indian international Devon Thomas with South African keeper-batter Quinton de Kock. We expect the same XI for this game with two wins.
BR Key Players
Kyle Mayers – The competition has gotten off to an excellent start for the all-around batsman. He took 4-4 from his two overs against the Saint Lucia Kings on Sunday and has amassed over 100 runs.
Jason Holder – In the previous game, the bowling all-rounder hit a run-per-ball average of 15 while giving the strike to his batting teammates. Against St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots, he recorded 2-21.
Obed McCoy – The 25-year-old left-arm bowler, tall and quick, scored 1-41 in the Royals’ opening game. He enjoyed playing the strike bowler for this team.
BR Team Capabilities
Barbados Royals have been in great form since last year’s CPL tournament. When you count the end of the 2021 season, the Royals have won three straight games and both of their CPL 2022 games.

TKR Team News
Spinner Akeal Hosein, who earned Player of the Match honors after scoring 4-13 in the victory over the Saint Lucia Kings, was injured and unable to play in Match 5. Although he is anticipated to return shortly, we do not believe he will be put in danger in this match.
TKR Key Players
Nicholas Pooran – One of the cleanest hitters in the West Indies is the third batter, who bats left-handed. He plays aggressively by nature.
Sunil Narine – For the Knight Riders, the all-rounder bats first and is a very lethal ballplayer. He will probably love bowling on this lane.
Ravi Rampaul – The 37-year-old pace bowler is an accomplished T20 bowler. In this format, he took 219 wickets despite not picking up any during the final three games of the 1960s.
TKR Team Capabilities
Trinbago Knight Riders defeated Saint Lucia Kings by three wickets to start their competition. This year’s team should be strong.

Betting Tips for this Match
- Barbados Royals’ opener Kyle Mayers has led the team to score in both of the CPL games thus far this year. As their leading scorer in the match against the Trinidad Knight Riders, the powerful left-hander is worth backing. The previous innings were cut short by rain, and Obed McCoy only bowled one over. Our prediction for Barbados’ leading wicket-taker in this game is the left-arm pace bowler.
- In this format, Nicholas Pooran has a batting strike rate of 142.36 and scored 91 runs in his most recent international outing in August. Our prediction for the Knight Riders’ leading run scorer in this contest is the left-hander. We pick Ravi Rampaul to take the most wickets for the Knight Riders against the Barbados Royals because he consistently takes wickets in this format across the globe.
- Kyle Mayers has performed admirably throughout the competition. In this matchup, we advise betting on him to score more than 22.5 runs.
At odds of 1.5, Trinbago Knight Riders are the favorites to defeat Barbados Royals. To know more online betting tips and tricks about CPL, stay connected with CBTF. CBTF is a free cricket betting platform providing almost accurate betting tips to bettors.
