Barbados Tridents, who won the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) title in 2014, are all set for another title win in this edition after a gap of two years. The team is owned by Nita Ambani who also owns Mumbai Indians in IPL. Tridents is head by West Indies hard-hitter and all-rounder Kieron Pollard that also consists of huge names from T20 cricket. The team features big stars like Mr 360 AB de Villiers, Shoaib Malik, Ravi Rampaul, David Wiese, Robert Peterson, Wayne Parnell and West Indies skipper Jason Holder. Pollard has been the highest run-scorer for Tridents with 303 runs with knock of 82 being the highest and 14 wickets from previous editions while Peterson has 4-wicket haul to his name.

Tridents have entered the final twice once in the 2014 edition where they triumphed as winners while in the last season they lost to Trinbago Knight Riders by 20 runs. This year they will want to provide stellar show to reach the final stage and win the trophy for the second time. Like every T20 league, this is divided into group stages that go on to the knockout stage which ultimately provides the final teams with one them proving to be winners. The team also consists of other players like Nicolas Pooran a Trinidadian himself. He is not just excellent with gloves but can be handy with the bat as well.

Steven Taylor, on the other hand, is an American international cricketer with a touch of Jamaica to his name, thanks to his parents. He can also come handy with gloves but has been boosted at the top due to his run getting skills. Surprisingly, this time Under-19 cricketers will also find their way in CPL and one of the prominent bowlers who earned his name for West Indies was Shamar Springer. Akeal Hosain is yet another all-rounder fro Under-19 making his debut in this edition. While Springer will be useful with the wickets, Hosain can help with the bat in the middle. With experienced and budding cricketers on their side, the team will surely want to stand out in this edition of the CPL.
