Barbados Tridents will be eager to get back to winning ways after losing two games on the trot. In their last match, at this venue against Jamaica Tallawahs, the Tridents were unable to chase down 127 as they kept losing wickets to eventually fall short by just five runs.
Trinbago Knight Riders, on the other hand, faced a washout in their last game. In the game before, they went down to St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the Super Over after 40-overs ended in a tie. They too will be eager to get their momentum back, and will hope to get two vital points here.
Weather Conditions: A full game of cricket is on the cards with no predictions of rain on match day. Temperatures will hover around the 28-degree Celsius mark, with humidity even touching 80%.
Pitch Conditions: Unlike the other pitches used in the CPL, the one at Barbados has not seen many runs. Low-to-moderate scores have been notched up, with Jamaica scoring 127 in the last game, which they managed to defend. There is plenty in it for the slower bowlers and batters will need to grind it out once again.
