The 8th match of the season between St. Lucia Stars and Barbados Tridents is expected to be same. Both the teams have exciting players and the crowd should be hoping for fireworks on the field. The match would be played on the home ground of St. Lucia Stars and here is our prediction of the match that should be as exhilarating as it promises to be.
St. Lucia Stars are languishing at the bottom of the table and have already lost two of their matches. They would be hoping for a turn-around on their home-ground. They have been hit by the poor form of their top two players Shane Watson and Darren Sammy. They would be hoping that these two international all-rounders really kick-off in this match.
Kamran Akmal and Marlon Samuels are other two veterans who would be hoping to make a mark in the tournament. In the bowling department, there seems to be a sole bright spot in Shane Shillingford. His figures of 4/22 in the previous match was astounding. The team would be hoping for an encore from him.
On the other hand, the situation of Barbados Tridents is much better. They have played 2 and won 1 and lost the other. Kane Williamson provides the much-needed stability that you need in a T20 match. Kieron Pollard, Shoaib Malik and Wayne Parnell form a deadly trio of lethal all-rounders who can turn the match on its head by the word go. Also with Ravi Rampaul and Wahab
Also with Ravi Rampaul and Wahab Riaz, the team has two potent bowling options at the depth. Imran Khan would be hoping to strangle the batsmen once again. He has the best economy in the League. Let’s see the St Lucia Stars vs Barbados Tridents prediction.
