St Lucia Zouks v Trinbago Knight Riders – Match Preview

The Knight Riders have a fine record at this ground, having won 22 of 33 matches, and have been impressive since the CPL started.

However, despite losing their opening game, the Zouks will be full of confidence for this top-of-the-table battle. It all adds up to an even contest that could be decided by the finest of margins.

Where: Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad

When: Wednesday, 26 August 2020

Start Time: 14:00 GMT (19:30 IST)

Pitch conditions: If last year’s CPL is anything to go by, we can expect more runs now that matches have moved to the Queen’s Park Oval. The ground has hosted 36 T20 matches with the average first innings score being 159. There doesn’t appear too much advantage in batting first or chasing but slower bowlers were helped by the pitch in 2019.

Weather conditions: Rain showers are a possibility but there should still be plenty of opportunities for the action to get underway. Temperatures are around the 30 degree mark but there should be a little cloud cover.

St Lucia Zouks v Trinbago Knight Riders – Team News

The Knight Riders look to be a well-balanced unit at the moment and few changes are expected from them.

Their top order has also started to fire, as demonstrated by half-centuries for both Colin Munro and Darren Bravo against the Tridents. That helps take the pressure off top performer Sunil Narine.

Changes in the bowling attack also look unlikely after the wickets were expertly shared out among five bowlers in the last game.

The Zouks will likely look to their spin options of Mohammad Nabi and Roston Chase to help inspire them, while Scott Kuggeleijn will have done more than enough to keep his pace following his excellent three wickets against the Amazon Warriors.

Chemar Holder also came in for his first start of CPL 2o20 against Guyana and his two wickets should be enough for him to keep his place in the side.

St Lucia Zouks v Trinbago Knight Riders – Betting Tips and Prediction

This looks like it could be a closely fought contest between the two best teams so far this CPL campaign.

However, the Knight Riders look to be hitting top gear, especially their batting line-up. They should just have too much for the Zouks to contend with.

As ever, there are loads of other markets to look at ahead of this much-anticipated match-up.

Jayden Seales to Star for Trinbago

Jayden Seares has looked dangerous in every one of Trinbago’s games so far without getting the number of wickets he probably deserves.

His ability to take pace off the ball will be perfect for the Queen’s Park Oval and he can build on the four wickets he already has to his name.

He is priced at 6.0 with LeoVegas to be Trinbago’s top bowler.

Chemar Holder to Take Chance Again

Young pace bowler Chemar Holder enjoyed an impressive four-day domestic season in the Windies this year and earned his place on the Test tour of England.

He didn’t feature in the first three games for the Zouks but eventually made his mark in the last game against the Amazon Warriors. Holder was expensive for his two wickets but they should hand him plenty of confidence for this one.

His price of 5.0 with LeoVegas to be St Lucia’s top bowler is worth considering.

Colin Munro Ready to Go Big

New Zealand batsman Colin Munro took a while to get into his stride but looks to be hitting for now.

There was plenty to like about his half-century against the Tridents last time up. That followed an unbeaten 49 against the Tallawahs.

He looks capable of smashing a big score here and his price of 3.75 with LeoVegas looks appealing.
