Trinbago Knight Riders have history backing them
TKR and SLK are coming into this knockout fixture on the back of some contrasting form: four wins from their last five games propelled Trinbago Knight Riders to the top spot at the end of the league stages, while St Lucia Kings lost three out of their last four and finish fourth on the points table.
Trinbago Knight Riders are the four-time champions and have won the CPL in three out of the last four seasons (2017, 2018 and 2020). They have the big-match players and a lot of experience in their side and start as favourites heading into this contest. They finished with six wins and four losses in the league stages and have the odds of 1.61 to win this game.
Meanwhile, this is only the third time that St Lucia Kings have made it to the knockouts: reached the final last year but lost to …TKR. They finished with a win-loss record of 5-5 in the league stages and face an uphill task in this first semi-final. They have their winning odds placed at 2.18
