Barbados Tridents (BT) in CPL

The Barbados Tridents represent the country of Barbados in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and have been part of the tournament right from the start. Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg bought an equity interest in the team in 2013, as he got intrigued by the sport when the club chairman Ajmal Khan introduced it to him. They have had decent success in the seven seasons they have been part of, having been crowned champions in 2014 and 2019. They are one of the three teams who have tasted success in lifting the CPL trophy and they would be hoping to defend their title this year, under the captaincy of Jason Holder.

The Barbados Tridents 2020 team has been built around a myriad of all-rounders with around 10 players in the squad capable of contributing with both bat and ball. As a direct result of this, the opponents will have a tough time against the long batting line-up. The team would be banking on experienced T20 players like Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Hales, and Shai Hope to take them home this time around. It would be interesting to see how the team lines up with so many players of a similar mold in the squad.

SWOT Analysis for BT Team 2020

Below is a detailed SWOT analysis of BT which will help to better understand the team's stats in CPL 2020. This analysis can help the CPL fantasy 2020 players to build their dream team more efficiently and make informed decisions.

Strengths of BT

Since the squad of Barbados Tridents in CPL 2020 is filled with all-rounders, they have the provision to field a playing XI where even the no.10 and no.11 players can come in and tonk sixes when the situation demands. As a result, this team should be confident enough to chase down any target. Most teams in the tournament will be wary of this aspect of the team and would want to have the extra cushion of 20 runs on the board. However, this can turn back in the Tridents' favor as the opponents might end up losing wickets in pursuit of those extra runs and end up scoring below par totals.

Weaknesses of BT

Well, it would be safe to say that the strength of this squad can also be seen as a weakness, as it does not have a premium specialist batsman other than Alex Hales. The lack of batsmen who can play long innings consistently may haunt them over the length of the tournament.

Opportunities for BT

In CPL 2020, Barbados Tridents have a huge opportunity to become only the second team to defend their title. This in itself should be a huge motivation for the team to go all out with their performances. It would be a great learning curve for teenagers Shayan Jahangir and Rahmanullah Gurbaz to learn the craft from such top players and make a name for themselves.

Threats for BT

With so many all-rounders in the squad as well as the playing XI, the management will have to sort specific roles to players regarding what is expected from them. If not, the confusion among the ranks can lead to poor performances, which can hamper the team's title defense.
