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