The match number 20 of the CLT20 2014 will be played between Northern Knights and Barbados Tridents. The match will in every case will be a dead game , with the result of this match not going to affect the berth of the semi finals spot. Kings x11 Punjab and Hobart Hurricanes have already booked their spot in the semi finals from this group.

The match will be played at Chinnaswamy Stadium , Bengaluru at 8 pm and will be expected to be a run feast.  Northern Knights had a good start to their campaign, first by booking a place in the main round and then winning their first league round but could not carry on. Barbados Tridents have not been able to put things together and have clicked in bits and pieces.


Strong Points:

Northern Knights have a very good bowling attack upfront which can blow away the top order of any team , which was their main reason for the success in the first half of the tournament. Kane Williamson will have to do it for the last time in this year’s CLT20 . They have been the best fielding team so far in the tournament.

Barbados Tridents will bank on their powerful batting line up, though yet to fire in this tournament. Ravi Rampaul will have to revive Barbados’s bowling , which has under performed so far.


Weak Points:

Northern Knights bank heavily on Kane Williamson on their batting and his failure so far has been the team’s failure. They lack a quality 5th bowler and once a team gets a good start , they have made them pay for this.

Barbados Tridents have been very poor on the field and have missed way too many chances. Their bowling has under performed and  their batsman have not yet performed as a unit.

This will be the last match before the knock outs start and with both the teams already eliminated from the CLT20 2014, they will look to end this on a high . Match will be a high scoring one and Barbados have a lot of powerful hitters who can clear it long way.
