Vancouver Knights can consider them somewhat lucky as rain and bad light helped them to win the Qualifier 2. However, a win is a win and it would have certainly boosted the confidence of the Knights.
Vancouver Knights will not have very good memories of the last match when they lost to the CWI B team. Both teams locked horns in the Qualifier 1 where the CWI B team had an unbelievable victory, reaching home on the last delivery of the match.

Chadwick Walton has been in sublime form and if Chris Gayle clicks at the top of the innings, Ben Dunk and Andre Russell have enough hitting prowess to take the team beyond 200. They also have bowlers in Tim Southee and Sheldon Cottrell who have the ability to not only stem the flow of runs but also take crucial wickets.

The CWI B team, on the other hand, has been absolutely on a roll. Justin Greaves, Shamar Springer, Sherfane Rutherford and Brandon King, all have been sensational. With the ball, Obed McCoy, Derval Green, Jeremiah Louis and Khary Pierre have also contributed handsomely.
Captain Anthony Bramble also showed signs of coming back to form in the last match. All in all, it promises to be a very hard fought encounter and worthy of the Final.
Now let's have a look at the two squads.

Anthony Bramble (c & wk), Sherfane Rutherford, Brandon King, Nicholas Pooran, Justin Greaves, Shamar Springer, Fabian Allen, Derval Green, Jeremiah Louis, Khary Pierre, Obed McCoy, Alick Athanaze, Roland Cato, Kavem Hodge
