BAR vs SLZ Dream11 : Both the sides go scouring for a second win today as they try to wrench out of their impasse
Saturday’s clash in the Caribbean Premier League 7 might be a bottom of that table clash, but it’s by no means one which doesn’t come bearing any ramifications with it. With both of St Lucia Zouks and Barbados Tridents having played the least number of matches in the league, the aspirations of making it to the semi-finals are still very much alive for either side despite failing to impress in the early exchanges.
Having played the least number of matches till now at just three, as Barbados veer up to partake in a hectic and congested schedule, the side know they need to start things judiciously for themselves today. The outfit have the lone win from three matches with their batting unit making for one of the worst orders in the league, an ordeal epitomised in their previous defeat.
Scoring just 140 while batting first, they ended up losing to Jamaica Tallawahs, side who themselves have offered nothing in the way of a challenge. The 4 wicket win left them languishing in the league with their batting order being caught unaware on ample positions, a predicament St Lucia Zouks will be looking to capitalise on come today.
The side themselves haven’t covered themselves in glory, losing the three encounters in four matches, a spree of results which have been nothing to write home about. They’ll be looking to overturn their 6 wicket defeat suffered in the previous match as St Kitts and Nevis Patriots chased down the 139 they had set infront of them with ease.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
We have seen three matches see scores of 200 plus be recorded over here on a fresh surface and with today’s track having gotten ample time to receive the due treatment, this match promises to be emanate yet another run feast. The relatively short boundaries and solid and hard track will see the ball come to the bat perfectly, allowing the batsmen to cream the wicket to the fence.
The side winning the toss will be looking to chase today with the surface set to remain intact across the 40 overs.

BAR vs SLZ Match Prediction
St Lucia Zouks have faltered, failing to impress with the side falling to the three defeats in four matches but in the Tridents, they have just the opponent they needed to overhaul their harrowing run of form. They are up against an opponent who have offered little while batting, a side which should be easy to put down under the brunt of the Zouks’ batting order.

BAR vs SLZ Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
We are bringing in St Luca Zouks opener and wicket-keeper, Andre Fletcher into our side for today’s imminent clash. He’s been one of their most steady bats, providing them with an apt platform at the top of the order, a performance he looks set to emulate today as well.
BAR vs SLZ Dream11 Batsmen
Roland Cato came into his side’s batting order for the first time yesterday, making the number 3 bat our first pick in this segment. He didn’t impress the last time around but is set to get another chance for his side, one where he promises to impress infront of a paper thin batting order.
Elsewhere from Barbados Tridents we are bringing in the duo of both their openers, Alex Hales and Johnson Charles. The two are the focal point of their side’s batting order, two names whose tenacity and valour will play a pivotal part if their side is to emerge on the winning side today.
BAR vs SLZ Dream11 All-Rounders
Our most heavily packed segment for today’s encounter, we have decided to head in with a staggering three all-rounders given the immense pool of options to immerse in and dive into. We’ll begin with Rakheem Cornwall, the most enterprising and enigmatic all-rounder in the league, a player who has become revered for his two toned ability as a player.
We are also picking up Colin de Grandhomme from the side while from St Lucia Zouks we have selected JP Duminy for this match.
BAR vs SLZ Dream11 Bowling Order
Although the wicket is going to be one where the ball comes onto the bat nicely, the nature of both the batting units doling out their expertise saw us move in with the four bowlers. Wickets are bound to tumble in a flurry with both the side’s being callous at playing the big shots, making St Lucia Zouks’ bowler, Obed McCoy our first pick with him being the highest wicket taker for his side.
Pacer and new ball operator, Hardus Viljoen will be partnering him for this one while from the other side we are moving in with Hayden Walsh after his four wickets in the last two matches and Josh Lalor.
BAR vs SLZ Dream11 Captain And Vice-Captain
Cornwall get to be our captain for today while Fletcher is the side’s vice-captain.
