Caribbean Premier League 2020: St. Lucia Zouks vs. Barbados Tridents, Match no. 5

Rashid Khan (BT) & Mohammed Nabi (SLZ) – Spot light on Afghan All-rounders

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Barbados Tridents come off after a win over St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots while St. Lucia Zouks failed to defend 159 runs against Jamaica Tallawahs. Tridents have excellent depth in their depth in batting line-up which came to fore last night while Zouks lack a big-hitter in their middle order. Both possess a host of spinners in their team and will be an exciting contest to watch. We predict Barbados Tridents to win this match. 

Score Prediction: The pitch is helping spinners & slower bowlers especially due to its sluggish nature. We expect scores in the range of 160-180 runs in this match. 

Toss Prediction: Chasing teams has won 3 out of the 4 matches so far and all teams opted to field first after winning the toss so far. We expect the same trend to continue.

Players to Bet on

BARBADOS TRIDENTS

  1. Kyle Mayers – Mayers played an impressive knock of 37 runs in 20 balls last night. He will look to continue his good form in this match too and will also look to improve on his bowling. 
  2. Jason Holder – Holder an all-round good match scoring 38 runs off 22 balls and a superb bowling spell of 4-0-21-0 last night. He will look to lead the team from the front in both aspects of the game. 
  3. Rashid Khan – Rashid Khan had a big impact on the result with his 26 runs off 20 balls playing at No. 10 and then claiming two wickets in the crucial 18th over. He tilted the match in his team`s favor in the crucial moments. 

ST. LUCIA ZOUKS

  1. Rakheem Cornwall – Cornwall was looking good with the bat but was unfortunately dismissed for just 9 runs.  He also provided crucial breakthrough with the ball but was not able to help his team win. 
  2. Obed McCoy – McCoy was the impressive bowler on display from their team last night. He went for runs in last two overs but had decent bowling figures of 3.5-0-28-1 and we expect him to take more wickets in this match.  
  3. Mohammed Nabi – Mohammed Nabi can be brilliant all-rounder in these conditions where he can give quiet overs with crucial break through and some quick runs towards the end to finish the innings on a high.
