SKN vs SLZ Dream11 Prediction: St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots vs St. Lucia Zouks – 22 August 2020 (Trinidad)
St Lucia Zouks will take on St Kitts & Nevis Patriots in the League Match of CPL 2020 aka Caribbean Premier League which will be played at the Brian Lara Cricket Stadium in the Trinidad. The T20 cricket is finally back on the T20 land of the Caribbean after the COVID-19 heartbreak.
St Lucia Zouks made a brilliant comeback in the last rain-halted game against the Barbados Tridents side. Zouks does not have star players in their ranks but still, they have performed well above their potential. Roston Chase has been brilliant for them with both bat and the ball for the team. This team would like to continue their good form.
St Kitts & Nevis Patriots have lost both of their games till now and would be looking to get a win anyhow in this game. They have some star players in their ranks and they need to fire in this game. Kitts dropped Joseph, Tanvir, and Da Silva in the last game but they should be back in this game for sure.
Pitch Report – This pitch has not been great for batting and staying low. We can expect a low-scoring encounter.

SKN vs SLZ Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Andre Fletcher (Price 9) will be the wicket-keeper of our squad. Fletcher has not been in a great batting form but he is a natural T20 match-winner. He will open the innings for his side and will be the best pick amongst the keepers of this game.
SKN vs SLZ Dream11 Batsmen
Chris Lynn (Price 10.5), Even Lewis (Price 10), and Ben Dunk (Price 8.5) will be our batsmen from the Patriots. Ben Dunk has been the best batsman of the side and has scored 63 runs in two games till now in the tournament. He needs to play a big inning in this game and will be the most reliable player. Lynn and Lewis are struggling on these slow pitches but both of them are genuine T20 match-winners and can play a really big knock on their day. This trio has to be picked.
Mark Deyal (Price 8) will be our batsman from the Zouks. Deyal looked really impressive batting at the number 3 position in the first game of the Zouks. He did not bat in the last game due to a shortened game but he will be a really good pick in this game.
SKN vs SLZ Dream11 All-Rounders
Sohail Tanvir (Price 9) will be our all-rounder from the Patriots, he is a very big asset to the side. Tanvir is an experienced T20 campaigner and a genuine wicket-taker. He picked a couple of wickets in the first game as well and showed his batting powers too. Tanvir was dropped in the last game but should be back for this game.
Mohammad Nabi (Price 10) and Roston Chase (Price 8.5) will be our all-rounders from the Zouks. Chase proved his batting abilities in the first game by scoring a half-century and his bowling abilities in the second game by picking a couple of wickets. He has to be there in the team whereas Nabi also bowled really well in the last game and he is a genuine T20 match-winner. Both of them would be really good options.
SKN vs SLZ Dream11 Bowlers
Rayad Emrit (Price 8.5) and Sheldon Cottrell (Price 9.5) will be our bowlers from the Patriots side. Emrit has been bowling really well and has picked five wickets in just a couple of games whereas Cottrell has picked three wickets in the tournament so far. Both of them would be really good picks.
Scott Kuggeleijn (Price 8.5) will be our bowlers from the Zouks side. He is a genuine wicket-taker in T20 cricket and has picked three wickets till now in the tournament. Scott will bowl in the powerplays and will be picked.
Match Prediction: St Kitts & Nevis Patriots will be the favourites to win this game.
