The Barbados Tridents, winners of the CPL in 2019, are out of the competition at the first stage. They play their final game on Saturday against the Tallawahs to round off their tournament.
They cannot catch the Jamaica Tallawahs, who are above them and also their opponents in this last game.
The Tridents and their fans will be incredibly disappointed with what has happened this time around, their team was expected to challenge once more but they haven’t even made the semi final stage.
The Tallawahs have guaranteed their position in the semi finals this week, currently they are in 4th position in the standings but could go up to 3rd if they win both games and other things go their way over the weekend.
Tallawahs Team News & Form
This weekend gives the Tallawahs a small opportunity to jump u into 3rd position in the table, though they do need to win both of their games and hope the Zouks are beaten on Saturday by the Knight Riders.
That is possible, and a win here would set up a great finish because the Tallawahs take on the Zouks on Thursday.
The Tallawahs were involved in a game with no result on Thursday due to the weather. Earlier in the week they were beaten by the league leading Trinbago Knight Riders.
Regardless of where they finish in the standings, this team would love a win over the weekend to install a bit of confidence back into the team.
Tridents Team News & Form
The Tridents were dumped out of the CPL on Thursday by the Guyana Amazon Warriors. This was the kind of performance that really summed up their tournament so far, hugely disappointing.
From their 20 overs, the Tridents scored just 89. It tells you all you need to know about the Tridents and their batting on Thursday when the top scorers on the team were Nyeem Young and Mitchell Stantner.
That performance really summed things up for the Tridents, they will hope to end with a bang here but recent form suggests they don’t have the quality to do that.
Opening Batsmen Glenn Phillips has played pretty well so far the Tallawahs in this tournament and he is our tip with 22Bet to be the key man here at 6.0.
The Australian can get out of the blocks quickly and put this Tridents bowling attack under pressure in the early stages of the game by getting a good score on the board for his team.
The Tridents have been hugely disappointing and their players will want to get home as fast as they can and forget about the CPL.
Things are different for the Tallawahs, they know they have a semi final to look forward to and for that reason they are our tip to win this game.
We have picked out Glenn Phillips to be the key man and expect him to be leading the way with the bat as the Tallawahs record victory here on Saturday.
