The Trinbago Knight Riders are the defending champions from the previous season and here too, they have been good overall with four victories from six matches as they have nine points to their name right now. On the other hand, the Barbados Tridents have secured only four points from the same number of matches and are placed at the fifth spot in the standings.

Sunny weather with the temperature ranging around 29 degrees Celsius and with very minimal chances of rain is expected during the course of the game.
The tracks have slowed down as the competition has progressed and hence the team that wins the toss should ideally look to bat first.
Predicted Playing XI:
Alex Hales and JP Dumminy form the core of the batting order which is strengthened also by the all-rounder duo of Daniel Christian and Jason Holder later on. Harry Gurney will be the key bowler for the Tridents.
Johnson Charles (WK), Alex Hales, Justin Greaves, Daniel Christian, JP Duminy, Jason Holder (c), Jonathan Carter, Ashley Nurse, Raymon Reifer, Harry Gurney, Roshon Primus
Trinbago Knight Riders:
Colin Munro and Lendl Simmons guarantee a solid start at the top whereas Kieron Pollard and Jimmy Neesham provide quality with the willow in the middle order. The bowling attack looks a bit insipid at the first sight, though.
Colin Munro, Lendl Simmons, Denesh Ramdin, Kieron Pollard (C), Jimmy Neesham, Darren Bravo, Seekuge Prasanna, Akeal Hossain, Khary Pierre, Anderson Phillip, Ali Khan
Jimmy Neesham, JP Dumminy and Kieron Pollard are absolute picks as they can earn a considerable number of points if they are in the groove. Sekkuge Prassana and Harry Gurney would be the other two advisable picks.
1: Alex Hales
2: Jimmy Neesham
