Guyana, August 13 at 3:30 AM IST
Barbados Tridents start their CPL T20 2018 campaign against Guyana Amazon Warriors on Sunday, at the Providence Stadium.
The winners of 2014 edition, Barbados Tridents have in the ranks some of the biggest names in world cricket, Martin Guptill and Steve Smith. Hashim Amla will be joining the squad soon after the end of South Africa’s tour of Sri Lanka. Dwayne Smith is another big match-player in the Tridents’ side.
Guyana Amazon Warriors, on the other hand, will be in action for their third appearance in space of six days. They came out on top of St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the tournament opener on Thursday (August 09).
The Providence Stadium is not a high-scoring venue. This one might well be an even contest between the bat and ball.
Venue Stats (T20Is): Highest total – 191/5 , Lowest total – 68 all-out, Average 1st innings score: 140, Average second innings total: 57
