The 17th match of the Caribbean Premier League 2019 will see St Lucia Zouks take on Barbados Tridents in Gros Islet. Both teams standing at the fourth and fifth position in the table with just one win so far from their campaign. A win here will not make much difference in the table but, could boost their confidence for their remaining matches.
