Game 12 of the Caribbean Premier League 2016 pits two powerhouses against each other as the Tridents host the Jamaica Tallawahs in Barbados.
Last night's game saw Trinbago Knight Riders inflict a first defeat of the tournament on the high-flying Guyana Amazon Warriors.
Their seven-run win was built around a half-century from Hashim Amla and fine work from an experienced bowling attack on a slow pitch.
Now the series heads to Barbados for the first time where the pitch may be a little more lively at the Kensington Oval.
Jamaica have two wins from their three matches so far while Tridents have won one and lost one as they now prepare for a run of four home games which could make or break their season.
On show will be some of the biggest stars in the game. For Jamaica, Chris Gayle, Kumar Sangakkara, Dale Steyn and Shakib Al Hasan. For Tridents, Kieron Pollard, AB de Villiers and Shoaib Malik.
Sri Lankan Sangakkara is hoping that his latest visit to the Kensington Oval does not see him on the losing side like he was in the 2007 World Cup final against Australia.
"It is an absolute pleasure to be here, a privilege, although memories of this particular ground are not great because in 2007 Adam Gilchrist took the World Cup away from us, but coming here to the Kensington Oval, it just an outstanding feeling," he said.
He adds that although there will be plenty of attention among the international players on show, who wins the game could come down to how some of the less heralded players perform.
"It is the performance on the day that matters and when you have seven local players playing they make a huge difference," he said.
"The young West Indians that are playing will be looking forward to a challenge.
"We don’t expect anything to come easy but it will be great to get a win on the road. We are two and one at the moment in our favour, hopefully we can make it three and one."
Gayle hammered a century against Trinbago Knight Riders but fell for a duck last time out against Guyana - nevertheless his will be the key wicket for Tridents, who themselves will look to de Villiers, Pollard and Malik to build a total.
The bowlers will have a key role to play and experience of conditions is already proving critical - expect Ravi Rampaul to be trusted with key overs for Tridents and Jamaica to mix things up, particularly if there is turn available.
One other factor to consider is that Tridents' last game was some six days ago so are they as match-sharp as Jamaica? Or will home advantage cancel that out?
