Winner qualifies to the playoffs
Another day in the final week of the CPL league phase and another contest which is going to end the tournament for one team and clear the way for another into the playoffs. Both St Lucia Zouks and Barbados Tridents have started the campaign slowly but found momentum in the later half. Now they face each other in their most crucial match of the tournament where they need nothing less than a win to stay alive in the tournament.
Barbados might consider bringing in Roshon Primus in place of Chemar Holder. On the other hand, Zouks likely to stick with the winning combination.
The surface in Barbados has slowed down considerably which is evident in the last two games and it’s going to remain the same way in this match.
Barbados Captain has been in some form in the season where he has a PPM of 50.4 and MDTA of 1.33 in the 8 matches played so far. His consistency in the second half of the season makes him a must-have.
Shakib Al Hasan
He has continued the good form he acquired in the back end of the recent Tri-Series in his first match of the CPL. His ability to come up with all-round performance makes him a preferred choice today.
Another all-rounder in Barbados’ lineup Duminy is having his best CPL stint yet. He has a PPM of 59.3 overall in the season and that goes to 69 in the last 5 matches, which makes him the most sought after player in the Dream11 cricket team for today’s match.
The seasoned campaigner has been at his usual best in this season. Especially in the last 5 matches, he was in red hot form where he has a PPM of 54.
The T20 specialist has been in decent form in the season, but he is yet to come up with his best performance. Now the situation is tailor-made for him to come up with one such performance as the side is in a must-win situation.
