The Caribbean Premier League season this year had the most dramatic start, a couple of games were shortened due to rain whereas players like Andre Russel were seen striking at a strike rate of less than 100. The points table doesn’t show us anything much at this point as Trinbago Knight Riders lie on top after playing 2 matches and winning both of them.

The seventh game of the season will see St Kitts & Nevis Patriots lock horns with St Lucia Zouks, who has one win from two matches. It will take place on August 22 at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots who have played two games this season have lost both and will be looking to open their account against Zouks. Both sides are likely to make one change in their playing XI.

Pitch Report

The Brian Lara stadium which has produced low scoring games this season has a long boundary on one of the grounds which is why batsmen haven’t been able to get those big hits right.

At the same time, the wicket won’t be changing much as there will be something for the pacers as well as the spinners. The rain has made the outfield quicker but the pitch has offered more assistance to the bowlers which has resulted in low scoring affairs.

It is important to pick players who are in good form and can play a decisive part in the match. This will help you earn more points throughout the game. Meanwhile, both teams have some quality players in their ranks who can light up the stage.

All eyes will be on Andre Fletcher, who is slowly getting his rhythm back. He played a quickfire knock which helped Zouks secure a win in the rain-marred encounter. On the other hand, Chris Lynn has had a rough patch, but when get going, he can murder any bowling units.

Predicted Playing XI

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots: Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Ben Dunk, Jahman Hamiton, Joshua Da Silva, Rayad Emrit (C), Sohail Tanvir, Ish Sodhi, Sheldon Cottrell, Alzarri Joseph.

St Lucia Zouks: Rahkeem Cornwall, Andre Fletcher, Leniko Boucher (wk), Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Kavem Hodge, Daren Sammy (C), Chemar Holder, Kesrick Williams, Zahir Khan Pakteen, Obed McCoy

Chris Lynn

Match Prediction

Both team St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and St Lucia Zouks are coming from a rough patch and will be eager to open their account in the points table. They will fight aggressively as they’d want those 2 points on the table.

Both teams look even at this given point but Zouks might just have that little advantage going their way after that close encounter versus Barbados Tridents yesterday.
