Barbados Tridents Team News & Playing 11

BT Team News

Barbados Tridents have no injury concerns going into this game. They did not make a change in their line-up in the previous two matches and we don't expect them to make any for this match either. Hashim Amla opened the batting last time with Dwayne Smith and Martin Guptill was pushed down to number three.

BT Key Players

Barbados Tridents have a formidable top-order batting line-up with Hashim Amla and Steven Smith being the key figures. Smith smashed his first fifty of the CPL last time out, scoring a 44-ball 63 against Jamaica Tallawahs. Amla has made promising starts in both the games and he is expected to play a substantial knock this time. Shai Hope has scored the most runs for the side and he is their biggest hope in the middle order. Raymon Reifer, Wahab Riaz and skipper Jason Holder will be the team's best bets with the ball. Reifer has been the pick of the lot with seven wickets in three matches and the Tridents will back this left-arm seamer to do well. Riaz does not have too many wickets against his name but he has not gifted easy runs to the batsmen either. Holder knows these conditions well and he could make a significant impact here.

BT Recent Form

Barbados Tridents are currently placed fifth on the points table after winning two and losing one out of the three league games they have played so far in this year's CPL. They beat Guyana Amazon Warriors by 30 runs in their campaign opener but lost their next game to St Lucia Stars by 38 runs. They have now gotten themselves back on the winning track with a two-run victory over Jamaica Tallawahs in their previous match.

St Kitts & Nevis Team News & Playing 11

SNP Team News

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots chose to play an extra batsman in their last game against St Lucia Stars. They dropped fast bowler Jeremiah Louis and replaced him with top-order batsman Brandon King. The Patriots are coming off a terrific win and so they may not want to make any changes to their side for this game. Expect Chris Gayle to promote himself back to the opening slot.

SNP Key Players

Chris Gayle has scored the most runs for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots so far and he is always a big threat to the opposition. He can be extremely dangerous and can take the game away in no time if not sent back to the pavilion early on. Evin Lewis seems to be going through a lean phase and the team will be hoping that he returns to form against Barbados. Devon Thomas has had a good hit this season and is having a strike-rate of 160. Sheldon Cottrell and Sandeep Lamichhane are the two main weapons for the Patriots when it comes to bowling. Lamichhane is amongst this CPL's leading wicket-takers with seven wickets in four games while Cottrell has taken six. The latter is coming off a three-wicket haul against St Lucia Stars and he could cause problems for Barbados with the new ball.

SNP Recent Form

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have won two and lost as many matches out of the four they have played so far and are currently positioned fourth in the league standings with four points. After going down to Jamaica Tallawahs by 47 runs, they came back strongly in the competition with a comfortable seven-wicket victory over St Lucia Stars in their last match. The Patriots would have been delighted with their bowling effort last time out as they shot out the Stars for just 69.

­St Kitts & Nevis vs Barbados Tridents Betting Odds

Barbados Tridents are coming into this match as the bookmakers' favorites to win at odds of 1.72 on Bet365 and 1.84 on Betfair. Now this could largely be due to their home advantage and their decent record at home in recent times. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots hold an impressive head-to-head record against the Tridents but they begin as underdogs for this game at a higher price of 2.10 on Bet365 and 2 on Betfair.

­Barbados Tridents vs St Kitts & Nevis Prediction

Both the teams are coming on the back of a win in their last match and will be looking to bag a couple of points to move up the leaderboard. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots do have the upper hand as they have beaten Barbados Tridents four times out of six, including their most recent encounter which was played last year at this very ground. The Tridents, however, will be playing at their home ground where they have won seven of their last eleven matches. Although both teams have plenty of quality players in their ranks, we feel that the hosts due to their superior batting strength have a better chance of winning this battle.

Final Verdict: Back Barbados Tridents to beat St Kitts and Nevis Patriots at 1.72 on Bet365 and 1.84 on Betfair.
