St Lucia Zouks opted against young batting star Kimani Melius last time out, with Rahkeem Cornwall partnering Andre Fletcher at the top of the batting order and Mark Deyal and Najibullah Zadran among their top five. There is room for manoeuvre going forward.
St Lucia Key Players
- Roston Chase: Hit a half-century last time out to pick up his good batting form – he just needs someone to go big alongside him too.
- Andre Fletcher: A popular T20 batsman, the opener scored well last time out but lacked his usual tempo at the top of the order.
- Kesrick Williams: Formerly a top wicket-taker in this tournament, he started this year’s CPL with figures of 2-32 against Jamaica Tallawahs.

Barbados Tridents will expect more from their top-order batsmen this time, but there is plenty more to be given up there and they could stick with the same side that started with a win.
Barbados Key Players
- Rashid Khan: A brilliant first-ball six on his way to 26* from 20 balls at number ten was a stamen of intent, and he also claimed 2-27 with the ball.
- Jason Holder: The captain top-scored with 38 from 22 balls with the bat and then bowled economically on his way to figures of 0-21.
- Hayden Walsh Jr: Last season’s Player of the Tournament was wicketless last time out but he has proved now that he is a danger with the ball.
