The 5th match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 will be played between St Lucia Zouks and Barbados Tridents at the Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba in Trinidad.

St Lucia Zouks lost their last match against Jamaica Tallawahs by 5 wickets.

Roston Chase was their top scorer but batted a bit slowly. Chase scored 52 off 42 deliveries with 4 fours and 2 sixes at a strike rate of 123.81. He perhaps needed to be somewhere close to a strike rate of 140-150 to have a real impact on the game. However, given that the batters around him failed, one cannot blame him too much.

Najibullah and Andre Fletcher also contributed with trepid 20s. Kesrick Williams, as expected, was the best bowler for St Lucia Zouks with 2 wickets from his 4 overs while bowling at an economy of 8.

Barbados Tridents won their first match of CPL 2020 by 6 runs.

Kyle Mayers and Jason Holder were their top scorers, both batting at a strike rate of over 170. Crucial 20s from Mitchell Santner and Rashid Khan towards the end ensured that Tridents had some score to defend (153).

But, it was their bowlers who won them the match. After contributing with the bat, Santner and Rashid Khan were miserly on a tough batting wicket and picked up two wickets each. While Santner gave away 18 runs from his 4 overs, Rashid Khan conceded 27 to defend the modest total and have the team's first points on the board.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Barbados Tridents - Johnson Charles, Shai Hope (wk), Corey Anderson, Kyle Mayers, Jonathan Carter, Jason Holder (c), Mitchell Santner, Ashley Nurse, Raymon Reifer, Rashid Khan, Hayden Walsh 

St Lucia Zouks - Andre Fletcher (wk), Rahkeem Cornwall, Mark Deyal, Roston Chase, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Daren Sammy (c), Scott Kuggeleijn, Obed McCoy, Kesrick Williams, Zahir Khan
