The batting lineup consists of the likes of Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Smith and Denesh Ramdin, who on their day are capable to tearing any bowling attack into pieces. In the bowling department, Sunil Narine and Krishmar Santokie will be be the mainstays.

For the visitors, the experienced Tamim Iqbal will be carrying the hopes of his team to fire with the bat as well as give the team a good start.
