Barbados Tridents Preview & Form
The Tridents must be kicking themselves after what could have been their ticket back to prominence went up in flames and burned their hands while at it. Now, with just 2 wins and a whopping four losses, they find themselves in dire straits, low on points, possibilities, and morale. Somewhere in the distance, Guyana fans are laughing with a sense of Schadenfreude. If the Tridents are to make a miracle comeback, it almost certainly has to start right away, as another loss might break their morale past the point of no return.
St Lucia Zouks Preview & Form
The Zouks will be part happy, part disappointed, and part intimidated by what transpired between the Tridents and the Knight Riders. Happy because their opponents will be low on morale, disappointed because Knight Riders will almost certainly finish the league on top now, and intimidated by the sheer depth of the Trinbago team’s batting. Nevertheless, as Guyana and Barbados proved beyond doubt last year, league standings mean absolutely nothing when a playoff follows. For now, that is what the Zouks will look forward to.
Barbados have their backs against the wall, and that is precisely when some people fight their best. Expect Johnson Charles and Kyle Mayers to continue their good form with the bat, while Rashid Khan and Raymond Reifer get some Zouk scalps.
The Zouks have been a force of nature this season, and not one that has any reason or intention to stop now. Expect Roston Chase and Mohammad Nabi to hit them long, while Scott Kuggeleijn continues his antics with the ball alongside Zahir Khan.
