CPL 2020 Match 7, Cricdaddy Match Live Updates: On Day 5 of the CPL 2020, the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots will battle against St Lucia Zouks on Brian Lara Stadium in the Match 7 of Cricdaddy CPL 2020 tournament. Matches are going to come thick and fast in the tournament with 2 clashes a day but the Patriots and Zouks will hit the ground after a day gap. Both the teams have already played a match earlier so the fitness of the players is going to come in question for sure. Here are Today’s Match Prediction for the fans.
Date: 22th August (Saturday)
Venue: Brian Lara Cricket Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad
Pitch Condition: The weather in Tarouba can trouble the game. There is a lot of rain forecast in the region, throughout the tournament. Fans can expect some rain interruptions during the match as well. The pitch is a bit slow and will help spinners. Any team batting first must look to score around 160+ to let their bowlers experiment with speed.
St Kitts & Nevis Patriots: For the Patriots to win matches in the tournament, their batting needs to fire consistently. With Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis, and Ben Dunk on their side, Patriots have a strong looking batting side. Dinesh Ramdin can be really valuable from behind the stumps. Though Chris Lynn struggles on slow pitches and Lewis takes his time to settle down. Still, these players can turn the game for any side.
The bowling side of the brigade is armed with Alzarri Joseph, Sheldon Cottrell, and Sohail Tanvir. Tanvir is devastating is the short format of the game. The team lacks quality spinners but Sodhi can do the job for them.
St Lucia Zouks: The Zouks had finished second from last in the tournament last year. The team appears to be mediocre with not so fancy names on their side. Mohammad Nabi can be a key player for them as he has experience of playing a lot of T20 games across the globe. They also have Darren Sammy on their side. Roston Chase will form the backbone of Zouks’ middle-order with no other experienced players on their side. Kimani Melius can exhibit some towering hits in the end.
The team also lacks reliable all-rounders and quality pacers. The bowling side of the Zouks is even more fragile. They must hope for their players to do their best if they are willing to mark their presence in the tournament. Taking on Patriots will definitely be a hard nut to crack for the Zouks.
