Every time St Lucia Zouks seem to build some sort of momentum, they are pegged back with a loss. Their batting hasn’t really been consistent and it is the bowlers who’ve pulled them through on most occasions. Mohammad Nabi has been the star with the ball and unlike most other teams, the SLZ pacers have done well with Kesrick Williams and Scott Kuggeleijn taking 22 wickets between them.
They run into a dominant Trinbago Knight Riders side who’ve been absolutely magnificent throughout this tournament so far. The three-time champions have found players stepping up at different junctures It is largely their batting that has flourished and in fact, they could be termed as the best batting side in this CPL so far.

Jamaica Tallawahs have two games left and are placed at the fourth spot. However, they have won just three games in this season and they have cemented a place in the top four. But they will be aiming to gain some momentum and win the next two games before the semi-finals.
RECOMMENDED BET: Barbados Tridents to win the toss at 1.90
They are up against Barbados Tridents who are on a four-game losing streak. The problem for Barbados has been their star players like Rashid Khan, Johnson Charles, Mitchell Santner and Jason Holder have been way too inconsistent and that has probably cost them.
The Tridents have also had issues with their death bowling with most of their bowlers ineffective after the first half of the innings. The onus will be on Holder to find the right bowlers to bowl in the death.
