We have now reached the knockout stage in the ongoing edition of the Super50 Cup in the West Indies, and Trinidad and Tobago will take on Barbados in the first of the semifinals on Wednesday.
Trinidad and Tobago are the favorites to win this match, according to most cricket betting sites. But seeing how Barbados has performed in the last 2 matches, one cannot write them off completely.
TT vs BRP Team Previews
Trinidad & Tobago
The defending champions from the last season have been in great touch this time around too. Barring a loss against Guyana in the second match of the league stage, Trinidad and Tobago has remained undefeated, finishing at the top of the Zone A table.
Kjorn Ottley has been great at the top of the order, providing his team with many a good start. The middle order too, including Nicholas Pooran, Darren Bravo, and Jason Mohammed has been in good touch this season. Bowling has been one of the biggest strengths of Trinidad and Tobago. While Sunil Narine has been good in patches, Shannon Gabriel and Yannic Cariah have been pretty consistent throughout, along with Akeal Hosein.
However, the team seems to be lacking a good all-rounder at this stage.

Barbados’ entry into the semifinals is nothing short of a miracle. The team had just6 points against their name at the end of the first 4 fixtures, and most fans had accepted the fact that they will not make it into the next stage. However, the team came back strongly in the last two matches, winning each of them, to clinch a spot in the top 2 of Zone B.
Shai Hope has been excellent this season. He played a superb knock of 88 runs from just 67 deliveries to lead his team to an incredible win against the Leeward Islands in the last match. With that win, despite having the same number of points as their opponents, Barbados went through to the next stage.
Shai is also the top-scorer for his team, with 287 runs against his name. While the services of all-rounder Roston Chase are being sorely missed, Shai has received good support from Kyle Hope and Zachary McCaskie. Javed Leacock bowled an excellent spell of 4-48 from his 10 overs. Jomel Warrican and Jonathan Carter have seen success this season.

Pitch and Conditions
The pitch at North Sound is perfect to play cricket, as it has something for everyone. While the batsmen will find it easy to score runs because of the good and consistent bounce, the quicker bowlers will be able to get some movement off the seam. The spinners won’t be disappointed too, as there is some turn as the match progresses. The last couple of matches here saw the use of DLS due to rain, and that is likely to be the case on Wednesday too, as there is a forecast for rain.
