Amazon Warriors have trampled all they have faced so far this season, including three victories over the Tridents.

In the preliminary round, which the Amazon Warriors topped with maximum 20 points, Warriors defeated Tridents on September 8 by 47 runs and on September 22 by 12 runs on the Duckworth Lewis System.

On October 6, in the first qualifier for the final, Amazon Warriors overpowered Tridents again by 30 runs, which the latter recovered from by defeating defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders by 12 runs to advance to the final.

Tridents, on the other hand, won only five of their 10 preliminary round matches, as like they did against the Amazon Warriors, they also lost twice to Jamaica Tallawahs and once against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, to finish with 10 points.

Tridents will be going for their second victory in the the tournament, following their success in the second staging in 2014.
