CPL 2020, St Lucia Zouks vs Barbados Tridents: Match Prediction
In their respective opening matches of this tournament, the defending champions Barbados Tridents secured a six-run victory while St Lucia Zouks suffered a five-wicket defeat.
Though Barbados didn’t get a good start, their middle and lower-order batsmen rescued the side. Also, later, their bowlers were mostly controlled.
On the other hand, most of the Zouks players failed to impress in their first game of this tournament, except the in-form Roston Chase.
The defending champions Barbados are favourite for this match, who also have a good record against Zouks. Meanwhile, Zouks need to utilise their talented all-rounders effectively to claim their first victory in this tournament.
CPL 2020, St Lucia Zouks vs Barbados Tridents: Dream 11, Fantasy Tips
St Lucia Zouks
In their opening game of this tournament, Zouks’ middle-order batsman Roston Chase played the crucial 52 runs knock that helped his team to reach the 150-run mark. Andre Fletcher and Najibullah Zadran could perform better as they were dismissed at the crucial times after getting settled down.
In their first match of this tournament, most of the Barbados batsmen disappointed. If any of the contributions missed from their middle-order or lower-order batting line-up, the defending champions would have to face an embarrassing start in the CPL 2020.
