Caribbean Premier League 2020: Trinbago Knight Riders vs. St. Lucia Zouks, Match no. 27

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Trinbago Knight Riders and St. Lucia Zouks are the first two teams to qualify for the knockouts. Knight riders are having a dream season with 8 victories in as many matches so far. Zouks on other hand after a good showing so far will miss the key Afghan players owing to the participation of their own Shapeegza league. We expect Trinbago knight Riders to win this contest. 

Score Prediction: The pitch will be freah after a day`s rest and we expect it have true bounce and pace on offer. We can expect scores in the range of 160-180 runs in this match. Spinners might have a big role owing to its dry nature. 

Toss Prediction: Chasing is the best option as we have rain threat and DLS considerations are expected to affect the game.

Players to Bet on

ST. LUCIA ZOUKS 

  1. Roston Chase – Chase will have a bigger role to play in the absence of Mohammed Nabi. Chase has exceeded his expectations so far and will look to continue his good form into the business end. 
  2. Rakheem Cornwall – Cornwall is yet to make a big score with the bat barring acoupleof quickfire 20s. He needs to bat deep and big to help his team post a big score. 
  3. Scott Kuggleijn – Scott Kuggleijn has 12 wickets at an economy rate of 7.5 RPO. He is the only pace bowler in the top-5 wicket-takers of the season so far. 

TRINBAGO KNIGHT RIDERS

  1. Lendl Simmons – Simmons will be dejected as he missed his century by just 4 runs last night. Simons will be a tough player to stop once he gets set at the crease. 
  2. Sikander Raza – Raza had bowling figures of 3/15 last night and Trinbago knight Riders will look at him as a batting all-rounder option in the team. 
  3. Khary Pierre – Pierre opens the bowling for TKR and has been in good rhythm so far. He also has played a few vital cameos with the bat to help his team win recently.
