The CPL 2020 has witnessed six great games of T20 cricket thus far. In the 7th game of the tournament, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots will take on the St Lucia Zouks. The former lost both the games it has played thus far in the tournament. In the first match, they were short by six runs against the Barbados Tridents while they lost by 3 wickets to the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the second game.
The Zouks, on the other hand, bounced back after a loss in their first game to the Jamaica Tallawahs. They got the better of the Barbados Tridents in the 5th match of the tournament. In a match that was reduced to 5-overs per side, they chased down a target of 47 in just 4.1 overs. The team will fancy carrying this momentum forward into this game as well.
There is a 37 to 40 per cent chance of precipitation during this game. Even if there is rain initially, we might have a shortened game since the clouds are expected to clear up.
The pitch, thus far, has had something for everyone. It is not particularly easy to bat here. The spinners get grip and turn.
Average first innings score: 141 (Last six games in the tournament)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 5, Lost – 1, Tied – 0
