What's the match?

Trinbago Knight Riders take on St Lucia Kings in the 2022 Caribbean Premier League.

When is it taking place?

The match is scheduled to take place at 7pm local time (GMT-5) on Sunday, September 18.

Where is the match being played?

This game is due to be staged at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy on Trinidad.

Who's got the form?

A midtable clash between two teams who need the points if they are to keep the pace with runaway leaders Barbados Royals.

Trinbago have won twice in the last three days, beating Guyana Amazon Warriors on Thursday, before overcoming Jamaica Tallawahs despite a poor start to their run-chase. This is their third game in quick succession.

For Kings, this is the chance to build on the momentum created by a convincing victory against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, where Faf du Plessis and Johnson Charles set up a 189-run target that their bowlers could comfortably defend.

What's the match-up to watch?

It's impossible to look past Trinbago's star-studded middle order, which features three greats of the T20 franchise circuit in Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine and Andre Russell. None of them, however, will be at the T20 World Cup this autumn; neither Russell nor Narine were selected, while Pollard has retired from international cricket.

St Lucia might turn to David Wiese to counter their triple threat; the Namibia allrounder ended up with the remarkable figures of 3 for 8 from his four overs against Patriots, stifling their chase through the middle overs.

Knight Riders will have to forge their own plans, however, to dismiss Johnson Charles, the leading run-scorer in the competition so far. His opening partner, Faf du Plessis, is seventh on that list.

What's the news from the camps?

Both teams have used the depth of their squads so far, with St Lucia calling on 19 players over seven games, while Trinbago have used 16.
