  • Let's have a look at the two fantasy Dream11 suggestions for the all-important final of CPL 2020 between TKR and SLZ.

  • Trinbago Knight Riders start as favourites to clinch the title.

After 23 days of riveting action, the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 has reached its climax. It is only fair to say that the two best sides in the competition have reached the final of CPL 2020.


Undefeated Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) will be at loggerheads with challengers, St Lucia Zouks (SLZ), at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad on Thursday, September 10.

Both teams are coming off thumping wins in the one-sided contests of semi-finals, where they knocked out Jamaica Tallawahs (JT) and Guyana Amazon Warriors (GAW), comprehensively.


TKR vs SLZ, Probable XI:

Trinbago Knight Riders:

The TKR will be high on confidence after defeating the Zouks twice in the round-robin stage. They will bring forth their big guns for the all-important final.

TKR would eye the record of remaining unbeaten throughout the tournament and clinching the title, after their twelfth successive win.


Probable XI:

Lendl Simmons, Sunil Narine, Tion Webster, Tim Seifert (wk), Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard (c), Dwayne Bravo, Akeal Hosein, Khary Pierre, Fawad Ahmed, Ali Khan.

St Lucia Zouks:


TKR can only neglect the threat of Zouks at their own peril. The Darren Sammy-led side has been unpredictable in the tournament, especially during close games.

Zouks would look to seek revenge of their two losses in the league stages. They would be charged up after bundling out the Warriors for the second-lowest total in CPL history.

Probable XI:


Rahkeem Cornwall, Mark Deyal, Andre Fletcher (wk), Roston Chase, Mohammad Nabi, Najibullah Zadran, Javelle Glenn, Daren Sammy (c), Scott Kuggeleijn, Kesrick Williams, Zahir Khan
