The Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR), after a bright start, fell away considerably, until they caved to the Barbados Tridents for the third time in the tournament. Twice they were beaten at home by their arch-rivals, in the preliminary round of games at the Queen’s Park Oval on September 26 then in the semi-final at the Brian Lara Stadium on October 10.
It was a tremendous disappointment to their many fans who were cheering them on with the expectation that they would complete a hat-trick of victories in 2019, being the champion team of the Caribbean Premier League. Not to even qualify for the final was a pain in the heart that crushed the resolve of many!
But what went wrong? Why did they do so badly? Who is to blame? These are the questions that need to be answered.
