Match 5 of the 2019 Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will take place between Trinbago Knight Riders and St. Lucia Zouks at Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad. Led by Kieron Pollard, the Knight Riders have won both their matches so far, and are placed at the top of the table. The Zouks, captained by Darren Sammy, lost their first match of the tournament against Guyana Amazon Warriors.

Ground Details and Team Combination 

In the first two matches played at this venue, spinners were dominant, giving away runs at an economy rate of just 7.10 compared to 8.65 by the pacers. On an overall level, pacers have a better strike rate than spinners, but that doesn’t tell the complete story. 

The strike rate of spinners is better than pacers in the first two phases of the innings, but they haven’t taken any wickets during the death overs, having bowled just 18 deliveries. 

The pitch has behaved differently across both matches played at this venue in this year’s CPL. The first match saw 152 being defended, while the second match saw 191 scored in the first innings. The only similarity being that spinners were hard to get away in both matches. 

Captaincy Choices 

Sunil Narine was the star performer for the Knight Riders in their previous match against Jamaica Tallawahs. He scored 46 in just 22 deliveries, and then came back to pick two wickets in the second innings. It was noteworthy that he bowled in the death overs as well so that increases his wicket-taking probability. 

James Neesham has picked two or more wickets in both matches so far and he has batted in the top five. Going by his form and resource consumption, he is a must pick in a fantasy team. 

Rahkeem Cornwall scored a quick-fire 36 runs off just 14 deliveries and had bowled two tight overs in his side’s first match. He should get to bowl four overs on this track and thus should earn enough fantasy points. 

X-Factor 

Fawad Ahmed will be the key for the Zouks on this pitch. An attacking leg-spinner with a strike rate of 18 and an economy rate of 6.58 across T20 leagues since 2018, he will lead the bowling attack on this spin-friendly track. 

Weather 

There are no chances of rain and it is expected to be very humid during the course of the match. The temperature is expected to be between 26 and 32 degrees Celsius. 

Fantasy Team

According to our prediction, the Knight Riders should win the match, so one should have more players from the hosts when it comes to fantasy team combination. While Narine, Neesham and Cornwall are must-picks, death-over bowlers and attacking spinners are also necessary in one’s fantasy side. 

Predicted FanFight Team

Denesh Ramdin, Kieron Pollard, Tion Webster, Andre McCarthy, Sunil Narine, James Neesham, Rakheem Cornwall, Mohammad Hasnain, Obed McCoy, Fawad Ahmed, Krishmar Santokie.
