Two giants of Twenty20 cricket collide in game 16 of the Caribbean Premier League 2016 as Tridents host reigning champions Trinbago Knight Riders in Barbados.

It's a day game at the Kensington Oval and Tridents will be looking to make it two wins out of two at home after a good win over St Kitts & Nevis Patriots in their last match.

AB de Villiers shrugged off a blow to the helmet to hammer 82 in 54 balls and that came after they had been reduced to 29 for three early on.

Nicolas Pooran and Kieron Pollard also performed well with the bat before Ravi Rampaul, Akeal Hosein and Imran Khan all took a couple of wickets to serve warning to Trinbago that this is a well balanced side that bats deep and has plenty of bowling options to call on.

Trinbago, meanwhile, were last in action against Guyana Amazon Warriors, holding on to beat the table-topping side by seven runs, so they are going for a second straight win away from home.

Hashim Amla was their key man with the bat on this occasion and Trinbago will hope he can offer their bowlers some advice on how to keep compatriot de Villiers quiet.

Trinbago's spinners and medium pace bowlers have done a brilliant job in the tournament so far but with the Barbados pitch expected to have much more pace in it than the one we saw in Guyana, then stuffing their side with spinners may not be the right road to go down.

Instead, they may look to get one of their pacers like Ronsford Beaton into the side while Bravo will still be a threat on any surface.

Tridents, champions in 2014, lost to Trinbago in last year's final and also went down by 11 runs when the two teams met in Port-of-Spain earlier in the season.

Amla and Bravo were brilliant on that occasion so expect Tridents to spend plenty of time on getting their plans in place for those players.
