Preview:

The Trinbago Knight Riders, after the upset in the last season, have bounced back hard in this season. The Knight Riders juggernaut has been unstoppable this season. Thus far in the league stages of the league, the side won all the games and are on the top on the points table. They would try to do everything in their capacity to make it a perfect 10 by winning in the next two matches.

Their opponents for this game, the St Lucia Zouks, have also had a decent season so far. With 5 wins in eight games, they have already secured a place in the top four. Their next goal would be to displace the Guyana Amazon Warriors from the second spot on the points table by either winning their next two games or by winning at least one by a massive margin.
