CPL 2020, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots vs St Lucia Zouks: Match Prediction
While St Kitts and Nevis Patriots lost their first two matches, St Lucia Zouks suffered a defeat in their opening game of this tournament, but registered a victory in the last game against the defending champions Barbados Tridents in the rain-interrupted match.
Patriots’ bowlers have impressed enough but their batsmen have struggled. While they have some good top-order batsmen, they need a good start in the innings.
On the other hand, while Zouks won their previous match in the rain-curtailed game, they still have to prove in the upcoming matches. They have the quality all-rounders, who can play major effective roles in any kind of matches.
