Trinbago Knight Riders could move into third spot with victory over Barbados Tridents

Barbados Tridents take on the Trinbago Knight Riders starting at noon on Saturday at the Kensington Oval.

Captains Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo spoke about the match in Bridgetown on Friday.

The Knight Riders did not get off to a great start and are lagging behind in the standings at the moment, but Bravo isn’t focusing on anything other than on field performance.

“The table will take care of itself with every game that goes on. For us we are not going to focus on where we stand on the table. It is just every game we play on the road we have to win. Try and play every cricket game to win. Once you win cricket games everything takes care of itself.”

Bravo is aware that this match will present a challenge, especially as it will take place in the midday heat.

“Tomorrow is a very tough game again against the Tridents. They are always a very strong team. It is a different start, as it is 12 o’clock in the day so that in itself is very challenging. But it is going to be a very good game of cricket between two of the better teams in the tournament.”

The Tridents are currently sat in third place in the Hero CPL table and Pollard says the group is confident ahead of this big match up and they are feeling well rested and ready to go.

“I think we are in a good place. We have played three and a quarter games so we are well rested in that aspect. We are looking forward to this game. It is always a good game against Trinidad, especially here at the Kensington Oval.”
