SLZ vs BAR Dream11 Prediction
St. Lucia Zouks will take on defending champions Barbados Tridents in the fifth match of the season at the famous Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba, Trinidad.
St. Lucia Zouks will go into the game having gone down to Jamaica Tallawahs by 5 wickets. Roston Chase and Kesrick Williams were the standout players for the side, who were in general, pretty poor. Obed McCoy showed some glimpses of the threat he could pose, but wasn’t enough for his side as they failed to defend 158. Mohammad Nabi and Rahkeem Cornwall would need to step up big time if Zouks are going to test the Tridents.
For Tridents, their all-rounders Jason Holder, Rashid Khan and Man of the Match Mitchell Santner were outstanding and they set the tone for the rest of the tournament. Tridents would be hoping their openers Johnson Charles and Shai Hope could come good against the Zouks, and if Corey Anderson too can get going, it might be a long night for the Zouks.

SLZ vs BAR Key Players:
– St. Lucia Zouks
Mohammad Nabi: The Afghanistan all-rounder is a key player for his side. It wasn’t the best of starts for him against Tallawahs, but his record makes him a genuine threat. The experienced pro got 8 wickets and scored 115 runs in the 8 matches he played in the IPL in 2019. He has 69 wickets and over 1000 runs in T20Is.
Rahkeem Cornwall: The hard-hitting opener was the second-highest scorer for his side last season with 184 runs. He is a genuine threat in the powerplay. Although he couldn’t score big in his side’s opener, he bowled a crucial over and picked up the wicket of a dangerous looking Rovman Powell.
Kesrick Williams: Williams was Trident’s best bowler last season, and also their highest wicket-taker with 12 wickets in 9 matches, and yet again looked their most potent bowler in their game against Jamaica. Williams picked up 2 key wickets. He is also capable of getting some quick runs down the order.
– Barbados Tridents
Rashid Khan: The Afghanistan leggie is one of the top T20 players in the world and has a stellar record across leagues and in T20Is. He is a pivotal figure for the Tridents and was their star player in their opener as he scored a quickfire 26*, and backed it up with 2 wickets to help his side defend the target.
Jason Holder: Sachin Tendulkar talked about how underrated Jason Holder is. Holder has been leading his side from the front and has had contributions, both with the bat and ball. Jason Holder was 4th in the list of highest wicket takers in CPL 2019 with 14 wickets. Although he didn’t pick up a wicket in the opener, he played a crucial knock, batting at No. 5, scoring a smashing 38.
Mitchell Santner: Barbados Tridents strength has been bowling and Mitchell Santner seemed to have further strengthened that, especially on this wicket. Santner was the Man of the Match in his side’s opener, where he picked up 2 wickets including a maiden, and scored 20 runs.
