SKN vs SLZ Dream11 Match Prediction Cricket St Kitts and Nevis Patriots vs St Lucia Zouks CPL T20 22 August

SKN vs SLZ Dream11 Prediction: After the initial matches, the Caribbean Premier League has now entered in the critical stage for the group matches. After a day’s break, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots will take on St Lucia Zouks in the 7th match of the season. This match will be played at The Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba. This will be the third match for both the teams. We will preview the match in our Dream11 fantasy cricket.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have lost both their matches and are in serious need of some impetus. They need to start making their moves until it’s too late for them. In T20 leagues, you are always playing catch-up if you don’t get something from the initial matches. In their last game against Guyana, Chris Lynn and Evin Lewis started decently for them but Nick Kelly and Denesh Ramdin dismissed cheaply again. All the pressure was on Ben Dunk to deliver again but he got run-out before the final push. The Patriots made 127 and that was never going to be enough. Captain Rayad Emrit and Sheldon Cottrell bowled well with the former picking up 3 scalps but nothing much from the others.

On the other hand, St Lucia Zouks had a mixed start to the league. After losing the first match against Jamaica Tallawahs, they came back strongly against Barbados Tridents to register first points on the board. They were able to pull things back after a good start from the Tridents. Scott Kuggeleijn picked up a couple before spinners restricted the opposition in the middle overs. Mohammad Nabi, Roston Chase & Mark Deyal all extracted some help from the surface. In reply chasing 47 from 5 overs, Rahkeem Cornwell, Andre Fletcher & Mohammad Nabi completed the job comfortably.

After being introduced in the league in 2015, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have fared well against St Lucia Zouks. The Patriots have won 5 out of 10 matches between them while two games have been washed out. Clearly, St Kitts would be hoping to continue the record this year as well looking at their current position in the points table.

Pitch and Conditions

The weather forecast for the match is partly cloudy. But the good news for the fans is that no rain is predicted and that would mean a full match. A new pitch will be used for this round of matches at Tarouba but one can still expect the help for slower bowlers looking at the nature of the pitch.

SKN vs SLZ Dream11 Team Prediction

Let’s take a look at possible playing XIs for the both teams in today match prediction.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots Squad

Rayad Emrit (C), Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Ben Dunk, Nicholas Kelly, Joshua Da Silva, Sohail Tanvir, Jahman Hamilton, Ish Sodhi, Sheldon Cottrell, Alzarri Joseph, Jon-Russ Jaggesar, Dominic Drakes, Colin Archibald, Imran Khan

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots Team News

  • There are few changes expected in the playing XI of St Kitts and Nevis Patriots for this match.
  • Joshua Da Silva is expected to be back in the middle order after missing out in the last match. That will give a much needed solidity to the struggling batting. Denesh Ramdin needs to take more responsibility as an experienced player.
  • Chris Lynn and Ev in Lewis need to be at their destructive best sooner rather than later for their team. Also, Ben Dunk should retain his place in the middle order.
  • Sohail Tanvir and Rayad Emrit are very good lower order options in T20 cricket. St Kitts missed Sohail Tanvir in the last match very badly and he would surely start in this particular encounter. Alzarri Joseph is also expected to feature to complement Sheldon Cottrell and Ish Sodhi in the bowling lineup.

St Lucia Zouks Team News

  • After the crucial win against Barbados Tridents, St Lucia Zouks are expected to go unchanged in this match.
  • Team management would be hoping for a solid contribution from the openers Rahkeem Cornwell and Andre Fletcher. Both have looked good in patches so far in the competition.
  • Middle order of Mark Deyal, Roston Chase, Najibullah Zadran and Mohammad Nabi is strong enough but the form of Daren Sammy with the bat is a concern for them.
  • Bowling lineup of Scott Kuggeleijn, Kesrick Williams, Saad Bin Zafar, Obed McCoy will be having very good support from the spin bowling all-rounders as the Zouks have plenty of them.

Captain Picks

For Small Leagues

  • Mohammad Nabi will be the most popular choice for the captain’s position. He was ‘Man of the Match’ in the Zouks’ win against the Tridents. An experienced T20 player with all-round abilities is perfect to maximize your earnings in the fantasy leagues.
  • Another good option from the Zouks is of Roston Chase. He made a half-century with the bat in the first match while picked up a couple of wickets in the last match. Clearly, he is in great touch in both departments and is riding high on the confidence.
  • Sohail Tanvir will be back for this clash after missing out on the last one. He is the utility player from the Patriots. He has been performing very well in CPL over the last few years mainly due to the conditions here suit his style of play.

For Grand Leagues

  • Chris Lynn is coming into this match with the scores of 16 & 19 in first two innings. He has looked good but failed to convert in a significant score so far. With his power-hitting abilities, one can expect a big innings is just round the corner for him.
  • St Kitts and Nevis Patriots captain Rayad Emrit goes under the radar a bit as he isn’t talked about much. But he produces performances one after another in CPL. He had a decent start to this season as well with picking up 5 scalps from the first two matches. He can also contribute with the bat if situation arises.
  • Najibullah Zadran can be your logical pick for the grand leagues. He is hitting the ball nicely at the moment and can overcome the leg-spinner Ish Sodhi easily with his attacking instincts.

Who will win SKN vs SLZ Today Match Prediction?

As per our Dream 11 prediction, St Lucia Zouks are looking slightly better on paper than St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The Patriots would be depending on their opening partnership of Chris Lynn and Evin Lewis. The Zouks are strong in their spin-bowling department and conditions will also suit them. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots need to produce something to consolidate their position in the points table.
