SKN vs SLZ Dream11 Prediction
St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots lock horns with St. Lucia Zouks in the seventh match of CPL 2020 and both teams would be looking to put up a good showing.
St. Kitts& Nevis Patriots have lost both their matches and this game will be very crucial for them to get their campaign going. Despite the likes of Lynn, Lewis, Ramdin, and Dunk in their ranks, their batting has failed to come good. On the contrary, their bowling has fared well thus far with captain Rayad Emrit leading the way with 5 wickets in 2 matches, while Cottrell has picked up 3 as well in the 2 games played. They would need Ish Sodhi to raise his game and that different department can combine well to hand them their 1st win.
St. Lucia Zouks lost their opener to Jamaica Tallawahs but got lucky against the defending champions Barbados Tridents as a rain-curtailed game handed them a target of just 47 off 5 overs, which they chased down with 5 balls to spare and 7 wickets in hand. For the Zouks, Roston Chase has been their standout player. He scored a 50 in the opening game and backed it up with a brace in the next game. Kesrick Williams has come good and Nabi seems to be getting to his best. Zouks would need yet another team effort to pull off another win against the Patriots.

SKN vs SLZ Key Players
St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots
Rayad Emrit: The captain has led from the front with 5 wickets in 2 games. He is also handy with the bat in the lower order and can chip-in with some runs.
Sheldon Cottrell: Cottrell is a wicket-taking bowler and has picked up 3 wickets in 2 games thus far. He has also bowled a maiden and has given away just 5 runs an over.
Evin Lewis: Lewis looked a bit off-color in the opening game, but got a good start in the second game, scoring a quick-fire 30 off just 18 balls. He would look to build on from that innings against a relatively weaker Zouks bowling line-up.
St. Lucia Zouks
Mohammad Nabi: The Afghanistan all-rounder is a key player for his side. Though he is still far from his best, he gave a good return in the second game, picking up a wicket and scoring a quickfire 16 off just 6 balls to give impetus to the 47-run chase for the Zouks. The experienced pro got 8 wickets and scored 115 runs in the 8 matches he played in the IPL in 2019. He has 69 wickets and over 1000 runs in T20Is.
Kesrick Williams: Williams was Trident’s best bowler last season, and also their highest wicket-taker with 12 wickets in 9 matches, and looks to be the team’s best bowler. Williams picked up 2 key wickets in the first game and backed it up with another wicket in the game against the Tridents.
