St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are third on the points table with four wins and four losses. They have a well-balanced squad containing attacking batsmen, good bunch of all-rounders and lethal pace bowlers. With just two more matches left before playoffs, They will hope to get some crucial points.
In the last match, They defeated Jamaica Tallawahs by 20 runs. Batting first, Mohammed Hafeez and Laurie Evans stabilized the innings after the early departure of openers and were limping on 82/4 after 12 overs. However, A blistering cameo of 62 runs from 27 balls by Fabian Allen led the team to a total of 176. With the ball, Pace trio of Cottrell-Joseph-Emrit took two scalps each to ensure victory by 20 runs for the team.
St Lucia Zouks are on the bottom end of the points table with only one win in six matches. Their batsmen have failed to perform consistently and support their bowlers who have put their best effort to restrict the opponent. Their last game was abandoned due to rain.
However, In the 12-overs of play, Zouks batsmen were able to score 99 runs. Openers Andre Fletcher and John Campbell failed to gave an excellent start to the team and lost their wicket cheaply. Same was the case with Colin De Grandhomme and Rakheem Cornwall. Star T20I batsmen Colin Ingram was the only positive for hosts scoring unbeaten knock of 52 runs just from 34 balls. They will be eager to put a unison effort tomorrow and defeat Patriots comprehensively.
