St Lucia Stars Team News & Playing 11

STS Team News

St Lucia Stars had to make a couple of forced changes to their side for the previous game against Trinbago Knight Riders. Kesrick Williams and Mark Chapman were both ruled out due to injuries which made way for Rahkeem Cornwall and Chandrapaul Hemraj respectively. Cornwall was impressive in his 29-ball 53 and he could be retained for this match. If Williams recovers from his injury in time, he will most likely replace Chandrapaul.

STS Key Players

David Warner, Andre Fletcher, Lendl Simmons and skipper Kieron Pollard are the big guns for St Lucia Stars with the bat. Warner smashed an unbeaten 72 off 55 balls in the last game against Trinbago Knight Riders and even though that brilliant knock went in vain, the team will be relieved to see him return to form. Pollard has scored the most runs for his side so far this CPL and is coming off a whirlwind 23-ball 65*. Mitchell McClenaghan seems to be the biggest threat in this line-up when it comes to bowling. The Kiwi fast bowler has taken the most wickets for the Stars this year - five from four matches - and he was the pick of the bowlers last time with figures of 2-21 from three overs. The team's bowling also relies heavily on Kesrick Williams and they will be hoping that he gets fit in time for this game.

STS Recent Form

St Lucia Stars slipped to their fourth consecutive loss in this year's Caribbean Premier League when they faced a five-wicket defeat at the hands of Trinbago Knight Riders the other night. They did a good job with the bat scoring 212/2 in their 20 overs but even such a batting performance was not enough to help them put an end to their losing streak. The Stars have now lost their last 15 matches in a row.

Barbados Tridents Team News & Playing 11

BT Team News

Barbados Tridents won their opening encounter against Guyana Amazon Warriors quite convincingly and so they will probably go into the game against St Lucia Stars with the same line-up. Martin Guptill and Dwayne Smith, despite having made a rough start, are likely to open the batting once again. None of the players in the team were reported to be injured at the time of writing.

BT Key Players

Barbados Tridents have a star-studded batting line-up with Dwayne Smith, Martin Guptill and Steven Smith being the key figures. Dwayne Smith scored the most runs for them last season and he had even belted an unbeaten 65-ball 103 in his last innings against St Lucia Stars. Steven Smith and Shai Hope too seem to be in good form with knocks of 41 and 88 respectively against Guyana Amazon Warriors. Mohammad Irfan, who has replaced his fellow countryman Junaid Khan in the squad, along with Wahab Riaz and skipper Jason Holder are the main threats in this bowling attack. Wahab now has 11 wickets in his last 10 CPL matches and the Tridents will want him to bring all his experience into play. Left-arm pacer Raymon Reifer who claimed a fifer in the campaign opener against the Warriors is another bowler to watch out for.

BT Recent Form

Barbados Tridents had a forgettable last season where they finished second from bottom in the league standings with four wins and six losses from ten matches. This year, they have got off to a bright start with a comprehensive 30-run victory over Guyana Amazon Warriors at the Providence Stadium. They put up a strong batting performance in that game to reach 185 and then their bowlers carried out a successful defense of that total.

Barbados Tridents Predicted Playing 11

Dwayne Smith, Martin Guptill, Shai Hope, Steven Smith, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Jason Holder (c), Raymon Reifer, Imran Khan, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Irfan, Ashley Nurse

­Barbados Tridents vs St Lucia Stars Betting Odds

Barbados Tridents boast a very strong record against St Lucia Stars. They are coming off a comfortable win over Guyana Amazon Warriors and are the bookmakers' favorites to win this match at odds of 1.66 on Betway, 1.61 on Bet365 and 1.73 on Betfair. The Stars are struggling to break their losing streak and nothing seems to be going their way. They are the obvious underdogs for this game at a higher price of 2.10 on Betway, 2.30 on Bet365 and 2.26 on Betfair.

­St Lucia Stars vs Barbados Tridents Prediction

St Lucia Stars have now lost their last 15 matches on the trot and are languishing at the bottom of the CPL 2018 points table with four defeats in four matches. There is obviously massive pressure on the side as they now have to win their remaining four league-stage fixtures if they are to have a chance of qualifying through to the playoffs. The Stars are already struggling in the tournament and now injury to their key bowler Kesrick Williams has made matters even worse for them. If he misses out, their bowling will be affected and the Tridents will surely look to exploit that weakness. Barbados Tridents have a healthy record against the Stars and they will be going into this game high on confidence after beating Guyana Amazon Warriors last time. We thus predict the Tridents to prevail in this match.

Final Verdict: Back Barbados Tridents to beat St Lucia Stars at 1.66 on Betway, 1.61 on Bet365 and 1.73 on Betfair.
