So now the six competing teams in the 2019 season will be Barbados Tridents, Guyana Amazon Warriors, Jamaica Tallawahs, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, St Lucia Zouks and Trinbago Knight Riders. Each team will play every other team twice in a double round-robin fashion before the knockout stage which will consist of two qualifiers, an eliminator and the final.

The 30 T20s of the league stage will be played across six different venues - Queen's Park Oval (Trinidad), Providence Stadium (Guyana), Warner Park (St Kitts), Sabina Park (Jamaica), Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium (St Lucia) and Kensington Oval (Barbados). The qualifier 2 and the final are scheduled to be played at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad.

Barbados Tridents Team Preview & Squad

Team Preview

Barbados Tridents are winners of the 2014 edition. They defeated Guyana Amazon Warriors by eight runs in the rain-affected final to claim their maiden CPL title. The following year, they finished runners-up after losing to Trinbago Knight Riders (the then Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel) by 20 runs in the final. The previous three seasons, however, have been very disappointing for the Tridents - they came fifth in 2016 and 2017 before winning the wooden spoon last time, finishing at the bottom of the leaderboard with just two wins from their ten league matches. The team lost its last seven matches on the bounce last year.

Team News

Barbados Tridents have retained West Indies test and ODI captain Jason Holder for this upcoming CPL edition and he has been named as the team's marquee player. Apart from Holder, the franchise has retained all-rounder Raymon Reifer, wicketkeeper Shai Hope, pacer Wahab Riaz and spinner Ashley Nurse. England opening batsman Alex Hales and young Nepalese leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane are among the new recruits. Asif Ali, Imad Wasim, Jonathan Carter and Johnson Charles are some other prominent players in the Tridents' squad.

Key Players

England attacking batsman Alex Hales along with Asif Ali, Johnson Charles and Shai Hope are the big guns for Barbados Tridents as far as their batting is concerned. Hope scored the most runs (288) for the team last season. Wahab Riaz took nine wickets for the Tridents last time and he together with the likes of Imad Wasim, Sandeep Lamichhane, Ashley Nurse and Jason Holder will be the key men with the ball.

Barbados Tridents CPL 2019 Squad

Wahab Riaz, Alex Hales, Ashley Nurse, Johnson Charles, Jason Holder, Jonathan Carter, Justin Greaves, Raymon Reifer, Asif Ali, Shai Hope, Imad Wasim, Sandeep Lamichhane, Chemar Holder, Roshon Primus, Hayden Walsh, Leniko Boucher, Joshua Bishop

Barbados Tridents CPL 2019 Betting Odds

10CRIC is offering odds of 5 on Barbados Tridents to win this seventh edition of the Caribbean Premier League.

Guyana Amazon Warriors Team Preview & Squad

Team Preview

It has been on four occasions now that the Guyana Amazon Warriors have gone so close to getting their hands on the coveted CPL trophy; they reached the finals in 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2018 only to finish as runners-up. They are one of the most consistent teams in the tournament having qualified for the playoffs in each of the earlier six editions. Last year, the Warriors finished second on the points table at the end of the league stage with six wins and four losses. They pipped league leaders Trinbago Knight Riders in Qualifier 1 to make a direct entry into the final where they faced the Knight Riders again. But pressure got the better of them and they ended up losing their fourth title clash.

Team News

Guyana Amazon Warriors have retained wicketkeeper-batsman Nicholas Pooran for CPL 2019 and he has been appointed as the team's marquee player. Apart from him, the Warriors have also retained Sherfane Rutherford, Keemo Paul, Shoaib Malik and Shimron Hetmyer. Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan will not be playing this season and he has been replaced in the squad by Pakistan's Shadab Khan as a like-for-like replacement. Chris Green, Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Ben Laughlin, Saurabh Netrawalkar, Romario Shepherd and Odean Smith are some of the other players in Guyana's squad.

Key Players

Shimron Hetmyer was the best batsman for the Guyana Amazon Warriors last season with 440 runs which included a century and a couple of fifties. The left-hander will be the key man for the team at the top of the order this year as well. Shoaib Malik and Nicholas Pooran are two other quality batsmen in this squad. The Warriors will mainly bank on Shadab Khan, Keemo Paul and Ben Laughlin to deliver the goods with the ball. Another bowler to watch out for is off-spinner Chris Green who took ten wickets last year.

Guyana Amazon Warriors CPL 2019 Squad

Shoaib Malik, Ben Laughlin, Veerasammy Permaul, Nicholas Pooran, Saurabh Netravalkar, Shimron Hetmyer, Brandon King, Chris Green, Shadab Khan, Keemo Paul, Odean Smith, Anthony Bramble, Keagan Simmons, Romario Shepherd, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Sherfane Rutherford, Clinton Pestano

Guyana Amazon Warriors CPL 2019 Betting Odds

Guyana Amazon Warriors have been priced at 6 on 10CRIC to win the CPL 2019.

Jamaica Tallawahs Team Preview & Squad

Team Preview

Jamaica Tallawahs are one of the most successful teams of the Caribbean Premier League. They won the inaugural edition in 2013, defeating Guyana Amazon Warriors by seven wickets in the final at Trinidad and then beat them again in the 2016 final by nine wickets at Basseterre to clinch their second title. The Tallawahs have never failed to go beyond the league stage. Just like in 2017, they won six out of ten league matches last year and finished third in the standings. However, their campaign was brought to an end with a two-wicket loss to St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the Eliminator.

Team News

Chris Gayle has returned to his home franchise Jamaica Tallawahs and the opening batsman has been named as the team's marquee player. Andre Russell, Glen Phillips, Rovman Powell and Oshane Thomas are the others to have been retained in the squad. Batsman Xavier Marshall, who was initially named in the squad, will now be playing for the USA and will miss the start of the CPL 2019 due to his international commitments. The team has now roped in batsman Kennar Lewis as a replacement for Marshall. Chadwick Walton, Ramaal Louis, Imran Khan and Shamar Springer are some other players in the side.

Amad Butt, who was initially named in the squad, will not be available due to his commitments with the Pakistan Cricket Board. The franchise has roped in Jerome Taylor as a replacement for Butt. The West Indian fast bowler has played in the CPL in the past having represented the Tallawahs and the Zouks.

Key Players

Chris Gayle, Rovman Powell, Andre Russell, Glenn Phillips and Chadwick Walton will be the biggest hopes with the bat for Jamaica Tallawahs this year. Glenn Phillips was the second-highest run-getter in the previous season with 457 runs. Gayle and Russell, on their day, can destroy any bowling attack with their power-hitting. With 18 wickets, Oshane Thomas was one of the tournament's best bowlers last year and the fast bowler could cause problems for the batsmen this year as well. Steven Jacobs, Shamar Springer and Afghanistan's Zahir Khan will also have a big role to play with the ball.

Jamaica Tallawahs CPL 2019 Squad

Chris Gayle (c), Chadwick Walton, Rovman Powell, Javelle Glen, Xavier Marshall, Kennar Lewis, Glenn Phillips, Andre Russell, George Worker, Ramaal Lewis, Imran Khan, Oshane Thomas, Christopher Lamont, Shamar Springer, Steven Jacobs, Derval Green, Jerome Taylor

Jamaica Tallawahs CPL 2019 Betting Odds

Jamaica Tallawahs are being offered at odds of 4 on 10CRIC to win the 2019 season of the Caribbean Premier League.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots Team Preview & Squad

Team Preview

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots made their first CPL appearance in the 2015 edition. They finished at the bottom of the points table in that season as well as the following year. But after back-to-back disastrous campaigns, the Patriots finally broke the shackles in 2017 to finish runners-up. They came second in the standings at the conclusion of the league round with six wins and three defeats. They then went on to beat Trinbago Knight Riders by 38 runs in the first qualifier to set to up a re-match with them in the final which they lost by three wickets. The Patriots had a pretty successful campaign last year as well where they finished fourth in the league standings with five wins and four losses. They beat Jamaica Tallawahs in the Eliminator but could not overcome eventual champions Trinbago Knight Riders in Qualifier 2.

Team News

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots will be led by the West Indies T20I skipper Carlos Brathwaite for the 2019 edition. The all-rounder will be taking over the reigns from Chris Gayle who has now moved to Jamaica Tallawahs. The team will miss the services of Rassie van der Dussen this season as he will be away on national duty. The South African batsman has been replaced in the squad by Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez. The Patriots signed Fabian Allen and Sri Lankan fast bowler Isuru Udana in the player auction. Evin Lewis and Sheldon Cottrell are two of the players who have been retained. The Patriots have called-up Kjorn Ottley and Jason Mohammad into their squad as cover for Aaron Jones and Isuru Udana respectively. Both Jones and Udana will miss a part of the CPL 2019 due to international commitments.

Key Players

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots will depend heavily on their opener Evin Lewis to provide them good starts with the bat this season. Mohammad Hafeez has returned to the team and he along with Devon Thomas are the other key figures in the batting department. Carlos Brathwaite and Rayad Emrit are two quality all-rounders in the squad. Captain Brathwaite is a dangerous T20 batsman and is a handy wicket-taking option with the ball too. Sheldon Cottrell showed impressive form at the World Cup and he appears to be the biggest threat in this bowling attack.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots CPL 2019 Squad

Carlos Brathwaite (c), Mohammad Hafeez, Rayad Emrit, Isuru Udana, Devon Thomas, Laurie Evans, Evin Lewis, Sheldon Cottrell, Fabian Allen, Keron Cottoy, Usama Mir, Shamarh Brooks, Jeremiah Louis, Afif Hossain, Dominic Drakes, Akeem Jordan, Aaron Jones, Kjorn Ottley, Jason Mohammad

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots CPL 2019 Betting Odds

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are 5 with 10CRIC to win the Caribbean Premier League 2019.

St Lucia Stars Team Preview & Squad

Team Preview

St Lucia Zouks have not had much success in the Caribbean Premier League as they have managed to reach the playoffs just once in the six seasons. 2016 produced the best result for them when they finished third on the points table. The Zouks had a horrendous tournament in 2017 when they failed to win a single game and were the first team to get knocked out of the competition. That was their worst performance in the history of the CPL. Last year, St Lucia Zouks finished fifth on the points table with three wins and six losses.

Team News

CPL has terminated the participation agreement of St Lucia Stars and are set to replace the team with St Lucia Zouks – the name which was originally borne by the franchise from 2013-2017. Daren Sammy has been retained and will be leading the team this season. The Zouks have also retained Obed McCoy, Andre Fletcher and Kesrick Williams. Lasith Malinga was picked in the first round of the player auction while Fawad Ahmed was recruited in the second.

Key Players

Andre Fletcher, Niroshan Dickwella and John Campbell will be the key men for St Lucia Zouks in terms of batting. Kesrick Williams, the fast bowler who took nine wickets last year, will be one of the main threats with the ball. Sri Lankan veteran Lasith Malinga along with Darren Sammy and Fawad Ahmed are the other bowlers to watch out for.

St Lucia Stars CPL 2019 Squad

Daren Sammy (c), Lasith Malinga, Andre Fletcher, Thisara Perera, Nitish Kumar, Christopher Barnwell, Niroshan Dickwella, John Campbell, Fawad Ahmed, Rahkeem Cornwall, Beuran Hendricks, Keddy Lesporis, Obed McCoy, Andre McCarthy, Kesrick Williams, Jeavor Royal, Roland Cato

St Lucia Stars CPL 2019 Betting Odds

St Lucia Zouks are the underdogs with 10CRIC at 7 to win the Caribbean Premier League 2019.

Trinbago Knight Riders Team Preview & Squad

Team Preview

Trinbago Knight Riders are the defending champions with back-to-back title triumphs in 2017 and 2018. They are the most successful team of the Caribbean Premier League having won the tournament thrice in the last four editions. They have never failed to qualify for the playoffs and are one of the strongest contenders to lift the trophy again. In 2015, the Knight Riders won their maiden title after defeating Barbados Tridents in the final. In 2017, they topped the league standings with eight wins from ten matches and went on to claim their second title. They finished league leaders last year as well with seven wins before beating Guyana Amazon Warriors in the final.

Team News

Trinbago Knight Riders have retained their captain and champion all-rounder Dwayne Bravo for the 2019 edition of the Caribbean Premier League. The franchise has signed explosive batsman Kieron Pollard who will be representing his home-based team for the first time in the tournament. The defending champions have made two more positive signings in Pakistani pace bowler Mohammad Hasnain and New Zealand all-rounder James Neesham. Sunil Narine, Ali Khan, Darren Bravo, Colin Munro and Denesh Ramdin are the ones to have been retained.

Key Players

Chris Lynn, Brendon McCullum, Colin Munro and Darren Bravo form a formidable batting line-up. Munro was among the top five batsmen last year with 366 runs and McCullum was not too far behind him with 335 runs. Lynn is one of the world's most destructive batsmen and on his day he can single-handedly win matches for his side. Dwayne Bravo is the second-best bowler in the CPL with 105 wickets in 77 matches and he was also one of the leading wicket-takers in the last season. Apart from Bravo, the Knight Riders will also bank on the likes of Sunil Narine, Shannon Gabriel and Shadab Khan to do the job with the ball.

Trinbago Knight Riders CPL 2019 Squad

Dwayne Bravo (c), Denesh Ramdin, Kieron Pollard, Darren Bravo, Sunil Narine, Seekkuge Prasanna, Colin Munro, Akeal Hosein, James Neesham, Javon Searles, Mark Deyal, Anderson Phillip, Ali Khan, Amir Jangoo, Khary Pierre, Tion Webster, Mohammad Hasnain

Trinbago Knight Riders CPL 2019 Betting Odds

Trinbago Knight Riders are 3.25 favorites with 10CRIC to win this year's Caribbean Premier League.

Our Prediction: Who Will Win CPL 2019?

St Lucia Zouks have been the least successful of all the teams in the Caribbean Premier league and they have fared poorly in the previous two seasons. There are plenty of unresolved issues within the franchise at the moment and that could affect their performance this year. Barbados Tridents too have not looked at their best in the past few editions of the tournament and we feel they will struggle again to qualify for the playoffs.

Trinbago Knight Riders, Guyana Amazon Warriors, Jamaica Tallawahs and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots finished in the top four last time and we expect these four teams to make it to the playoffs this year as well. Guyana Amazon Warriors and Jamaica Tallawahs have been two of the more consistent teams in the tournament. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots were very impressive on the previous two occasions and they are likely to go a long way again with the kind of squad they have at their disposal.

Trinbago Knight Riders, however, are the most successful franchise of the CPL, and once again, they will be coming up with a strongly recruited squad that has the likes of Kieron Pollard, Colin Munro, James Neesham, Dwayne Bravo and Sunil Narine. Although Guyana, Jamaica and St Kitts are all formidable teams, we are backing Trinbago to win their third CPL title on the bounce.

Final Verdict

Back Trinbago Knight Riders to win the CPL 2019 at 3.25 with 10CRIC.
