The news is out from the center. STNKP have won the toss and will bowl. Faf Du Plessis will like to have a good day on the field as it is also his birthday. On the other hand, this is a big occasion for CPL as it is the 100th Match in CPL history.

The uncertain weather in the Caribbean can play spoilsport for the home team again. They would like to get a full game without interruptions as their last game was washed out after just 10 overs being bowled. The onus will be on Kieron Pollard, Shoaib Malik and AB de Villiers again.

The hosts are ranked fourth in the points table and are only a place above their opponents. Faf Du Plessis and co. will like to turn things on their favour from now on before it gets too late for them. Home conditions and current form of SKTNP gives the edge to Barbados Tridents. BT also won the last encounter between these two teams.
