St. Lucia Zouks News

  • St Lucia Zouks finished second from the bottom last year and with Colin Ingram and Rilee Rossouw unavailable this year, finishing better than the last year would be a challenge for them, let alone finishing in the first half.
  • The Zouks play their first match against Jamaica Tallawahs and given that the Tallawahs was the only team that did worse than Zouks, the encounter between the two teams could highlight a lot of important points.
  • On paper, St Lucia Zouks looks mediocre at best. Although they have an experienced player leading the side in Daren Sammy, he is past his prime.
  • Mohammad Nabi, who has experience of playing hundreds of T20 matches across the globe, will have a huge role to play for the Zouks to make it out of the group stage. Nabi, along with Roston Chase, will form the backbone of Zouks’ middle-order.
  • There are a few areas where St Lucia Zouks can do well and that might be something they’ll be looking to play to their advantage.
  • They have Kimani Melius, who surprised one and all in St Lucia T10 Blast with his towering hits, at their disposal and he could be a surprise factor.
  • With the batting they have, they’ll have not option but to go hard right from the word go and hope that the plan comes off.
  • Thanks to the lack of reliable all-rounders, Zouks’ batting looks fragile and is, therefore, a good candidate for collapsing under pressure.
  • They’d need their top and middle order to do make the bulk of the contribution and that will be imperative for their success, not only in the upcoming contest but also in the matches to follow.

Barbados Tridents News

  • Although Barbados Tridents had a poor start last season, they finished on a high with the coveted trophy.
  • Despite not having the services of some of their last year’s key players, the Tridents will be looking to use the confidence and gain momentum early in the competition.
  • They play a match against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots before their match against the Zouks and their performance in that match could be a good indicator of things to come.
  • We will be able to talk about their performance more after their contest against the Patriots, but till then there are plenty of things that could be discussed about the Tridents.
  • Barbados Tridents had a weak batting lineup last year and while they have tried to bolster the batting strength with the inclusion of Corey Anderson, their top-order still appears to be a bit hollow.
  • Their fortunes may well depend on whether or not Shai Hope is able to replicate his fifty-over form in T20 Cricket.
  • Besides Corey Andreson, they have signed Rashid Khan for this season, and considering the stellar record Khan has, this signing could prove to be game changing for the Tridents.
  • To accompany Rashid Khan in the spin department, the Tridents have the services of Hayden Walsh Jr., Ashley Nurse, and Mitchell Santner, who all have a proven record in the shortest version of the game.
  • In the pace department, however, Barbados Tridents seem to be lacking depth and that is a vulnerability that can easily be exploited in death overs.
  • Jason Holder, their only experienced fast bowler, although has shown superb skills in red-ball cricket, his T20 record at the death is ordinary.
  • With the bat, the Tridents have Johnson Charles available at their disposal and he will be looking to have a tournament as good as he had last year. He was the leading run-scorer for the franchise and in the absence of experience at the top, his performance will be vital. Shamarh Brooks recently featured against England in the test series and while he looked a solid material for the shortest format of the game, he still has to prove himself.
  • All in all, Barbados Tridents is a team that is reliant heavily on its spinners and that, in fact, could prove to be a blessing in disguise considering the nature of the surface.
  • With Corey Anderson, Rashid Khan, and Jason Holder available as the all-rounders, they have a batting lineup that goes deep. If their top-order can set a solid foundation, it won’t be surprising to see Barbados Tridents continuing from where they left off in 2019.
