Trinidad are making their fourth appearance in the CLT20 but have been unable to make their participation count except in the first edition, where they qualified for the finals but failed to get the better of a spirited New South Wales side. They have a great team at their disposal with their batting line up boasting the likes of Darren Bravo and Adrian Barath who have had exposure in the international level. The duo are in blistering form and are capable of single-handedly obliterating any bowling attack on their day.
Their bowling attack comprises the likes of Sunil Narine and Ravi Rampaul who have had impressive stints with their respective IPL sides with Narine a revelation for the Knight Riders and helped them secure their first title in the fourth edition of the IPL. Their ability to keep a lid on the scoring will determine the fate of the game with the team from Australia a more than capable outfit to punish the opposition in case of profligacy.
Brisbane Heat will be looking at James Hopes and Daniel Christian to provide some experience in what is otherwise a very young team. Hopes has experience in the IPL and will be conversant with the conditions in this time of the year which can be the deciding factor in the context of the game.
