Caribbean Premier League 2020: St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots vs. St. Lucia Zouks, Match no. 7
Winners Prediction: Patriots is the only team that is yet to put their first points on board and Zouks earned their first points in a rain-marred contest against Barbados Tridents. Patriots looked out of sorts in both their games and need to step up their game soon. Zouks have an exciting young squad and we expect them to win this contest.
Score Prediction: Brian Lara Stadium pitch is beginning to aid the spinners more owing to it`s used nature and we expect the game to be a low scoring one. The average score will be around 130-150 runs in this match.
Toss Prediction: Weather interruptions hugely tilt the match in favor of chasing teams as per the DLS equation and we expect both captains to field first if they win the toss.
