Caribbean Premier League is set to step into the 7th Edition, which starts on September 4 with Trinbago Knight Riders taking on St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in a home game in Trinidad.

The league is held with six teams prepared to battle in 34 matches of CPL, where the Knight Riders had a chance to defend their title. The Knight Riders, earlier knowns as Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel were the three-time championships and are looking for a straight splash on to the title this year.

The CPL management has decided to terminate the contract of St. Lucia Stars with less than a month to go and has included St. Lucia Zouks in this edition as the sixth team with Darren Sammy back at the helm.

Here is a Quick Team Preview and Their Squads | CPL 2019:

1. Trinbago Knight Riders

The Trinbago Knight Riders are defending champions and won 3 of 4 CPL titles. The Trinidadian cricketer Dwayne Bravo’s misses out the CPL start with his finger injury and named Kieron Pollard as his replacement. In the first match with St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, Sunil Narine is expected to open the innings as Darren Bravo has suffered a concussion in the second Test against India. They will, however, go without Kiwi Colin Munro for the first three games and have signed Lendl Simmons as the replacement.

Further, Kiwi Colin Munro became the first overseas player to win the Man of the Series trophy in the 2018 CPL T20 for the Knight Riders. He scored 6 fifties and 567 runs at an average of 51. Newly retired Brendon McCullum is the new coach.

Squad: Darren Bravo, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Colin Munro, James Neesham, Tion Webster, Mark Deyal, Javon Searles, Akeal Hosein, Denesh Ramdin, Aamir Jangoo, Sunil Narine, Mohammad Hasnain, Khary Pierre, Sekkuge Prasanna, Anderson Phillip, Ali Khan.

2. Jamaica Tallawahs

The Jamaican cricketer Chris Gayle will be opening the innings & Andre Russell, Rovman Powell will be at the middle-order. Gayle is back with Tallawahs after two seasons and will also lead the side. Gayle has still got it in him there are some glaring issues on Russell’s fitness and Powell’s inconsistency which would be a challenging one. The Tallawahs, two-time champions, are one of the top competitors of the title, despite the exclusion of David Miller and Ross Taylor.

Shamar Springer will be the third pacer with Jerome Taylor and Oshane Thomas as the initials. The team is going with four fast bowlers which will include Russell. Zahir Khan from Afghanistan and George Worker are the exceptional spinning talents in the team. The first agenda for Tallawahs is to maintain their record of reaching the play-offs and may grab the title with the comeback of the universal boss Chris Gayle.

Squad: Chris Gayle, Rovman Powell, Javelle Glenn, Xavier Marshall, Kennar Lewis, George Worker, Andre Russell, Amad Butt, Ramaal Lewis, Imran Khan, Chadwick Walton, Glenn Phillips, Zahir Khan Pakteen, Oshane Thomas, Christopher Lamont, Shamar Springer, Steven Jacobs, Derval Green.

3. Barbados Tridents

The biggest challenge in front of the Tridents is to find out a good working comb in the team. It has become an issue of players coming in and leaving and they have to probably work on it.

With Nottinghamshire making the quarterfinals, Alex Hales will have a short turnaround time. He will be playing the quarterfinal on September 5 and then fly to join in the side. If the finals will be set in  Nottinghamshire then he will have to fly back to join the club back in England, especially having signed a new contract extension. Imad Wasim to isn’t available for the full season.

The West Indies current captain Jason Holder is no doubt an exceptional player but lacks the flamboyance required for the T20 format. A lot will depend on how the batting performs with Hales, Asif Ali, Shai Hope shouldering their hopes.

Squad: Alex Hales, Asif Ali, Johnson Charles, Leniko Boucher, Jonathan Carter, Roshon Primus, Hayden Walsh, Jason Holder, Imad Wasim, Raymon Riefer, Justin Greaves, Shai Hope, Wahab Riaz, Sandeep Lamichhane, Ashley Nurse, Chemar Holder, Joshua Bishop.

4. St Lucia Zouks

The team is with the Yorker king Lasith Malinga and Fawad Ahmed will be playing a key role when it comes to bowling while they are yet to confirm that Thisara Perera is available for the full tournament now. Niroshan Dickwella who looks to be in the top three considers in the batting order and still unknown of the fact to be an opener. Darren Sammy isn’t the same force anymore and should make sure that he will give out his best ever.

Squad: Andre Fletcher, Ronald Cato, Andre McCarthy, Keddy Lesporis, Nitish Kumar, Darren Sammy, Kesrick Williams, John Campbell, Christopher Barnwell, Thisara Perera, Rahkeem Cornwall, Jeavor Royal, Niroshan Dickwella, Lasith Malinga, Fawad Ahmed, Obed McCoy, Beuran Hendricks.

5. Guyana Amazon Warriors

The strongest side for the Amazon Warriors is the bowling constrains. Shadab Khan, Chris Green and Ben Laughlin are proven products in the format and the presence of Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, and Shoaib Malik gives a boost to the team. Keemo Paul and Chandrapaul Hemraj to be the best all-round options that Malik can use. They will be desperate to see both Pooran and Hetmyer fire in the tournament and will hope Malik comes out with the same intent that he showed up in the Global T20 Canada.

Squad: Shimron Hetmyer, Brandon King, Keegan Simmons, Shoaib Malik, Sherfane Rutherford, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shadab Khan, Chris Green, Keemo Paul, Nicholas Pooran, Anthony Bramble, Ben Laughlin, Romario Shepherd, Odean Smith, Veerasammy Permaul, Clinton Pestano, Saurabh Netravalkar.

6. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots

The complete Patriots team performance depends on Evin Lewis paly at the tournaments. However, Mohammad Hafeez and Sheldon Cottrell are held with a lot of the responsibility while there will be an eye on to Carlos Brathwaite’s captaincy. There couldn’t be seen firepower in the squad and that has been a telling say all around.

Squad: Evin Lewis, Shamarh Brooks, Isuru Udana, Fabian Allen, Mohammad Hafeez, Laurie Evans, Afif Hossain, Keron Cottoy, Aaron Jones, Carlos Brathwaite, Rayad Emrit, Devon Thomas, Sheldon Cottrell, Jeremiah Louis, Dominic Drakes, Akeem Jordan, Usama Mir.
