Cricket fans can watch “the biggest party in sport” live online from St. Kitts when the top two Caribbean Premier League teams, the Barbados Tridents and St. Lucia Zouks, square off on Day 10 of the CPL season — the second match of a two-week stretch for the league at Warner Park in Basseterre.
The fortnight festival of cricket will include a special “legends” match tomorrow, July 2, featuring a Hall of Fame lineup of retired cricketing greats, including West Indian legends Sir Vivian Richards and Brian Lara.
The charity game will also star New Zealand’s Danny Morrison — who is now one of the most recognizable cricket commentators now broadcasting — former Australian Test Player of the Year Damien Martyn, and West Indies pacer Ian Bishop, now a popular commentator, as well.
In CPL cricket action that counts, the Barbados Tridents and St. Lucia Zouks sit in first and second place respectively on the early CPL 2015 table, with each team having played four games, losing one. The difference came with a washout suffered by the Zouks in their opening match against Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel, depriving them of the extra point that might have come with a win.
The winner of Wednesday’s match claims sole possession of first place in the Caribbean Premier League.
To find out how to watch the Barbados Tridents vs. St. Lucia Zouks live online, see the information in the final paragraph of this article. The game at Warner Park is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. Atlantic Standard Time, which is the same as Eastern Daylight Time, or 3 p.m. Pacific.
Captained by West Indies star Darren Sammy, the Zouks also feature West Indies internationals Kemar Roach and Andre Fletcher, as well as New Zealand star Ross Taylor and controversial former England slugger Kevin Pietersen.
On the other side, league-leading Barbados is captained by 28-year-old West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard, who, in May, was key to the Mumbai Indians’ Indian Premier League championship.
But arguably, the main attraction on the Barbados side is lanky, 23-year-old Jason Holder, the fast-bowling all-rounder who captained West Indies one-day squad to the quarterfinals of the Cricket World Cup in March.
