St Lucia Zouks and Barbados Tridents have notched only a single victory in the four and three matches respectively that they have played so far this season. The Zouks are placed in the fourth spot whereas the Tridents are at the fifth spot in the league table right now.
Partly cloudy weather with 13% chances of rain and the temperature ranging around 29 degrees Celsius is expected during the course of the encounter.
Smaller boundaries and a generally flat track would eventually mean that a high-scoring game could be on the cards.
Predicted Playing XI:
St Lucia Zouks:
Rakhman Cornwall could have a massive impact on the proceedings whilst Darren Sammy’s captaincy would be crucial too as to how he rotates his bowlers to extract the optimum output through them. Colin de Grandhomme would be another key player in the side.
Andre Fletcher(w), Rahkeem Cornwall, Kavem Hodge, Colin de Grandhomme, Daren Sammy(c), Roland Cato, Thisara Perera, Kesrick Williams, Hardus Viljoen, Obed McCoy, Fawad Ahmed
Alex Hales and Jean-Paul Dumminy would be pivotal for the Tridents at the top whilst Jason Holder and Ashley Nurse add balance and variety to the side later on. Sandeep Lamichhane’s bowling prowess could help the Tridents notch another victory.
Johnson Charles, Alex Hales, Leniko Boucher(w), Jean-Paul Duminy, Jonathan Carter, Jason Holder(c), Ashley Nurse, Roshon Primus, Hayden Walsh, Josh Lalor, Sandeep Lamichhane
Alex Hales and Colin Ingram are bankable picks from the batting department whilst Jason Holder could be a valuable addition to the XI too. JP Dumminy and Colin de Grandhomme are the other advisable selections.
