The Caribbean Premier league has taken the West Indian domestic cricket to a whole new level. It has given a chance to many players to prove to the world that they belong at the international level. It has also helped the WICB financially and has given the fans in the Caribbean something to cheer about.
Barbados Tridents will be playing their second match in 3 days as they face Jamaica Tallawahs at the Kensington Oval. For the Tallawahs, this is their first game and they will want to start the tournament on the right note. But playing away to the champions cannot be an easy task and they will have to be at their best to have chance at beating them. Barbados defeated Guyana Amazon comfortably in the first match of tournament.
The game will be played on the 23rd of June. The strip at the Oval has traditionally produced loads of runs and this game has all the makings of an exciting encounter.
The Tridents will be fresh from lifting the cup in the previous year. They will want to stamp authority on the league with good results in the first few games. However, the Tallwahs have a pretty good group of players and will give the Tridents a hard time at their home ground.
Kieron Pollard, Shoaib Malik, Dwayne Smith, Ravi Rampaul
Jason Holder, Dilshan Munaweera, Jonathan Carter, Justin Ontong, Ashley Nurse, Robin Peterson, Shai Hope.
Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, Jerome Taylor, Mahela Jayawardene, Chris Lynn, Daniel Vettori, Nikita Miller, Krishmar Santokie, Rusty Theron, Narsingh Deonarine, Jermaine Blackwood.

Tridents will have already gotten used to the conditions of their home ground. With this being the second game they will play, it will give the hosts a slight advantage going into the game.
