Now that the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) cricket tournament has come to an exciting conclusion with the Barbados Tridents taking the trophy and claiming supremacy, it is time to look closely the performance our local Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR). The TKR started the competition very well with a succession of wins but later on in the competition seemed to have lost their way.

At one point the TKR was right up there in terms of points with the Warriors but were soon overtaken by the likes of Patriots and Tridents. The earlier loss to the Tridents gave the latter the confidence that they could do it again. And the result?
