Barbados Tridents will aim for a winning start when they take on the Indian Premier League (IPL) side Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the PCA Stadium in Mohali on Saturday.

Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) will look to build on the momentum that they gained from their win in their encounter against Hobart Hurricanes when they face Barbados Tridents in the fifth match of the ongoing Champions League Twenty20 2014 (CLT20) at their home ground of Mohali on Saturday.

KXIP walk into the game with a slight mental edge over the Tridents as the win in their opening encounter of the tournament will be a great morale booster for the side. It was the middle-order trio of Glenn Maxwell, George Bailey and Thisara Perera who rescued the side after a shaky start that saw the team trail at a score of 77 for the loss of five wickets while chasing a target of 146. The home side eventually won by five wickets.
