Despite boasting of some of the best spinners in the competition, the Tridents have underwhelmed and were eliminated from this year's competition after a woeful performance against Guyana Amazon Warriors.
Their opponents, Jamaica Tallawahs managed to sneak into the semis after a washout on Thursday. However, they have blown hot and cold in this competition with just seven points from eight games so far.
With only pride left to salvage, the Tridents will look to end their campaign on a high, although they will be in for a stern test against Mujeeb-ur-Rahman and Sandeep Lamichhane.
While the odds favour the Tallawahs, it is worth noting that the Tridents emerged triumphant in the pair's previous meeting. And, if that contest was any indication of things to come, we should be in for a great match on Saturday.

Match: Barbados Tridents vs Jamaica Tallawahs
Date: 5th September 2020, at 11:45 PM IST
Venue: Brian Lara Cricket Academy, Trinidad
The pitch has played slower in the second half of the day, with Barbados Tridents only managing a paltry 89 in their allotted quota of overs against the Guyana Amazon Warriors.
Although there's isn't much swing on offer, the pacers should revert to changes of pace, which has worked wonders for the likes of Naveen ul Haq and Romario Shepherd in recent games.
Wickets in hand will be key for both sides with run-scoring being difficult in the middle overs. Teams have preferred to chase and should continue to do so with 140-150 being a very competitive score at this venue.
