Barbados Tridents Preview & Form
With their one last chance of extending their thus far shambolic title defense on the line, Barbados Tridents will want to at least give their best, come what may. That being said, their performances thus far have been far from that, and there’s no telling what added pressure will do to their already frayed nerves. One thing’s for sure - the Tridents are going to need a major miracle to once beat Guyana given the form of their players and the fact that the team holds a major grudge against them because of last year. If they can somehow manage to win this, they might essentially get the chance to play a mini final against the Tallawahs for the last playoff spot, given that they manage to improve their run rate.
Guyana Amazon Warriors Preview & Form
It’s good to be a Guyana fan right now. The team has made a solid comeback and pushed itself up to second place after a statement victory over the Zouks. Sure, they still lack consistency, but the fact that their players are finally firing straight will be music to their fans’ ears. In their last game, they pretty much walked all over the St Lucia Zouks with an all-round performance that saw them clamp down their opponents to a miserly 109 before hunting down their target in just 13.5 overs. This dominating performance will be fresh in the players’ minds, and they will no doubt draw strength from the confidence they gained from it.
Death rattle or phoenix moment for Barbados? After many misses, this is the last chance. Expect Johnson Charles and Kyle Mayers to star with the bat, while Rashid Khan leads with the ball with Raymon Reifer following suit.
Guyana are certainly strong enough to purely muscle through this. It’s just a question of how much of a fight Barbados will put up. Expect Windies duo Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran to fight the bowlers best, while Naveen-ul-Haq and Keemo Paul pave the way with the ball.
