St Lucia Zouks Preview

St. Lucia Zouks were off to a flier scoring 73/0 in 7 overs with Mark Deyal (30 runs) and Andre Fletcher (46 runs) in full flow after Rakheem Cornwall was retired hurt.  Afghan duo of Najibullah Zadran (28 runs) and Moahmmed Nabi (35 runs) build on the platform to take their team to a good total of 172/6 in 20 overs.

The off-spinning duo of Mohammed Nabi and Roston Chase strangled the opposition despite pacers giving runs early on and ended with combined figures of 8-0-29-4.

Weather Conditions

Trinidad has 80% chances of rain on the match day and we expect rain to be an unwanted guest in this match. Few overs might be reduced due to weather interruptions.  

Venue Details

The pitch is beginning to deteriorate and batsmen are finding it hard to face the spinners. The last match at this venue gave a combined tally of just 220 runs with spinners taking 11 of the total 17 wickets. We can expect an average score of just 120-140 runs on this match.  

Toss: To Bat

The pitch is expected to slow down as the match progresses and batting first will be best option here. But the rain during the start of the match will tilt the captains to bat second keeping DLS equation in mind.

Winning Prediction

Guyana Amazon Warriors have better spinners in form of Green and Tahir against Zouks with the likes of Chase and Nabi.   Zouks have a better middle order than Warriors as their middle order is contributing with crucial runs. Guyana Amazon Warriors have big names like Pooran, Taylor, and Rutherford in their team and we can expect them perform well sooner than later. We predict Guyana Amazon Warriors to win this match mainly due to the advantage of their superior spin attack over the opposition team.

We predict Guyana Amazon Warriors to register hat-trick of wins.
