The Trinbago Knight Riders are the defending Caribbean Premier League champions
Trinbago Knight Riders can clinch a top-two finish in the 2018 Caribbean Premier League if they beat the Barbados Tridents at the Queen’s Park Oval on Friday night in Port-of-Spain.
The Knight Riders are coming off a 67-run win over the Guyana Amazon Warriors on Wednesday, while the Tridents are on a six-game losing streak, including a loss to Dwayne Bravo’s team last week.
Bravo said that his team will approach their game against the Tridents with the same mindset as against the Amazon Warriors.
"We had a great game against the Warriors and the mindset will be the same going up against the Tridents. In the Guyana game, we got a good start through Colin Munro and we did well with the ball too, Ali Khan was excellent,” said Bravo.
Bravo also singled out tournament top-scorer Munro for praise.
“Munro is our best batsmen, he's very consistent, he's hungry for success and it’s good to have international players who are committed to the team and committed to winning and that's what we want from overseas players,” said Bravo.
The Knight Riders are on 12 points with eight games played, while the Tridents are at the bottom of the six-team table with only four points from nine games.
The 2018 Caribbean Premier League final is set for September 16 in Trinidad at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Tarouba, San Fernando.
