Caribbean Premier League 2020: Barbados Tridents vs. St. Lucia Zouks, Match no. 19
Winners Prediction: Barbados Tridents are struggling with the ball mainly in the last few matches. They are losing the matches despite putting 140+ runs on board consistently. St. Lucia Zouks are high on confidence with their spin bowling department doing all the required damages. They also have a good batting line-up capable of producing bi g scores. We expect St. Lucia Zouks to win this match as they have form and momentum on their side.
Score Prediction: The pitch improved a little better last night but is still aiding the spinners considerably. Run scoring is not easy here and any score over 160 runs will be tough to chase.
Toss Prediction: Chasing teams has won 12 out of the 17matches so far and most teams opted to field first after winning the toss so far. We expect the same trend to continue.
