Caribbean Premier League 2020: St. Lucia Zouks vs. St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots, Match no. 15

Zouks look to re-group

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: St. Lucia Zouks dream run of three back-to-back wins came to an end with their loss against Knight Riders in their last encounter. Patriots put their first points on board in their fourth match of the tournament by beating the Barbados Tridents by 6 wickets. An inconsistent batting line-up and lack of sixth bowling option are the big worries of the Patriots team. Zouks rely heavily on the likes of Roston Chase and Mohammed Nabi in both batting and bowling departments. We expect St. Lucia Zouks to win this contest owing their stronger team composition and depth of the attack. 

Score Prediction: Queen`s Park Oval has been a slow pitch and batsmen will find it hard to score runs here. We can expect scores in the range of 160-180 runs in this match. Spinners might have a big role to play at this venue. 

Toss Prediction: Chasing teams have won 3 of the 4 matches played here so far and with rain threat looming batting second is the best option keeping DLS equation in mind. 

Predicted Playing XI

ST. LUCIA ZOUKS: Andre Fletcher (wk), Rahkeem Cornwall, Mark Deyal, Roston Chase, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Javelle Glenn, Daren Sammy (c), Scott Kuggeleijn, Kesrick Williams, Chemar Holder

ST. KITTS AND NEVIS PATRIOTS: Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis, Joshua Da Silva, Nick Kelly, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Ben Dunk, Sohail Tanvir, Rayad Emrit (c), Imran Khan, Jon-Russ Jaggesar, Alzarri Joseph

  • Zouks defeated patriots by 10 runs in their previous encounter this season.

Players to Bet on

ST. LUCIA ZOUKS 

  1. Roston Chase – Chase has 129 runs at a strike rate of 120+ and 5 wickets at an economy of 4.8 RPO in this season. He will be vital member in Zouks campaign this season.
  2. Mohammed Nabi – Mohammed Nabi is the team`s Most valuable player this season contributing both with bat and ball. He was the only player who looked comfortable with the bat for the Zouks. 
  3. Kesrick Williams – Williams will look to use his variations and slower balls to good effect on this pitch. He has 7 wickets this season but his economy rate of 8.4 RPO is a bit of concern. 

ST. KITTS AND NEVIS PATRIOTS:

  1. Evin Lewis – Lewis scored 89 runs off just 60 balls scoring nearly 70% of his team`s runs until he was dismissed. He hit 9 huge sixes in the match and helped his team to first victory. 
  2. Ben Dunk – Dunk hit two back to back sixes to help his team win with 13 runs required off last over. Dunk has played a 20-30 run cameos consistently this season and we can expect a big score from him this time around. 
  3. Rayad Emrit – Emrit ahs 7 wickets at an economy rate of less than 6 RPO this season and he will be tough bowler to face in this surface where the ball might stop on the surface.
