The St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots will be playing their second game within a span of 24 hours as they get ready to take on the St. Lucia Zouks. There is nothing separating the bottom four teams of the CPL 2019 right now as all of them are within one win of each other.
This will be the sixth match for the Patriots while the St.Lucia Zouks will be playing their fourth game. With a confident win against the Jamaica Tallawahs to help them get off the mark, the St. Lucia Zouks are going to be in an excellent frame of mind heading into this match.
Both SNP and SLZ need this win but the home team needs it much more.
St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots vs St. Lucia Zouks CPL 2019 is going to be played at Warner Park, Basseterre, St. Kitts on the 15th of September 2019.
Evin Lewis did not play the previous match for the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots and his absence is a huge blow to the team. There is no team news available as to whether he is going to play this match or not and we have to assume at this point of time that he is out injured.
Devon Thomas, Mohammad Hafeez, Laurie Evans, and Jason Mohammad failed to make any sort of impact in the top-order against the Guyana Amazon Warriors. The poor form of Mohammad Hafeez and Jason Mohammad makes the outlook for the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots quite grim.
Devin Thomas threw away his wicket in the previous match and should spend some more time before going to the big hits, however, that is not the norm in the CPL.
Fabian Allen was again pushed down the order even though he has been probably the most effective batsmen for the Patriots at this point in time in CPL 2019.
The St. Lucia Zouks are not a very deep batting lineup either but we think they still have a bit more in the tank than the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots.
Sheldon Cottrell returned to the bowling lineup to join Alzarri Joseph, Mohammad Hafeez, Fabian Allen, and Rayad Emrit. Carlos Brathwaite and Mohammad Hafeez are all all-rounders which can contribute in the bowling department.
DC Thomas, Evin Lewis, Laurie Evans, Kjorn Ottley, F Allen, Mohammad Hafeez, Carlos Brathwaite, Sheldon Cottrell, Akeem Jordan, Usama Mir, RR Emrit.
The St.Lucia Zouks made some good changes to their side in the previous match and would have also been glad to see some of their top-order players hit form. The addition of Colin de Grandhomme and Hardus Viljoen were excellent ones.
Both of them are excellent T20 players and can be relied upon to execute their skills in every single match. Thisara Perera has also cleared up his issues with the NOC and is going to be available for the entire duration of the CPL.
With Rakheem Cornwall and Andre Fletcher in splendid batting form, the St. Lucia Zouks are a dangerous side to come up against right now. The manner in which Rakheem Cornwall and Andre Fletcher are scoring runs in the powerplay, they can win matches if they stay at the crease for the 6-8 overs.
John Campbell, Colin de Grandhomme, and Thisara Perera are the only good players that can be relied upon after these three. Admittedly, this is not a very strong or a deep batting lineup. The opening batsmen are playing with a lot of risks and could easily fail on their day.
The bowling is a bit better the likes of Obed McCoy, Kesrick Williams, Colin de Grandhomme, Thisara Perera, Hardus Viljoen, and Fawad Ahmed. If the batting can keep its end of the bargain then the St. Lucia Zouks could very well be able to win some matches in the near future.
ADS Fletcher , DJG Sammy, Roland Cato, Rahkeem Cornwall, Colin de Grandhomme, Kavem Hodge, Thisara Perera, Hardus Viljoen, Fawad Ahmed, Obed McCoy, KOK Williams.

St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots vs St. Lucia Zouks CPL 2019 is going to be played at Warner Park, Basseterre, St. Kitts on the 15th of September 2019. The weather forecast for St. Kitts is for some rain on the day of the match but that is pretty standard for the islands.
The pitch is a bit slow and helpful for the spinners. Warner Park has some very short boundaries which can be targeted by the big-hitters on both sides. Expect plenty of sixes.
It is difficult to pin too many hopes on the batting lineup of either side right now. The St. Lucia Zouks, though, have a much better bowling attack than the Patriots and are also in a better state of mind.
Bet on the St. Lucia Zouks to win.
