BAR vs LEE Dream11: After the two semis, it’s time for the 5th place playoff here at North Sound in Antigua where Barbados will be up against Leeward Islands. This hasn’t been a great tournament for both the teams and they will look to finish the tournament on a high. Barbados Pride have a solid batting order with Hope leading the charge at the top. Brooks, Carter and Chase form an excellent batting order while skipper Jason Holder can be dangerous at the death. Jordan and left-arm spinner Bishop have been excellent with the ball but they will need a lot from the youngster Chemar Holder.
Leeward Islands Hurricanes started off decently but their wheels went off as the tournament progressed. They will need the experienced Kieran Powell to give them a good start. Nitish Kumar has been the standout performer for them and he along with Devon Thomas will be the mainstays in the middle order. The bowling needs to improve but they will be excited to have Alzarri Joseph back into the mix.
