1. Teams News - St Lucia Zouks
Zouks under Darren Sammy started the match with little chance against a side like Barbados Tridents, a well-knit unit and champions. But with copious assistance from rain, Zouks made full use of a small creek and registered their first win of CPL 2020. They had won of course but that has only helped to paper over some large cracks like lack of runs from top order batsmen. They will need a big show from players such as Andre Fletcher, Roston Chase, Mohamamd Nabi etc and not just against Patriots, they will require that effort throughout the tournament. However, a slight silverline is their tight bowling effort, particularly by the off-spin brigade, against the Tridents. They will have to build on it.
2. Team News - St Kitts & Nevis Patriots
They will require an immediate U-turn in how they perform in CPL 2020. Apart from Chris Lynn and to a lesser extent Ewin Lewis, none of their batsmen looked in good touch and it reflected in their batting effort too. Often, they limped around for scoring. The bowling scenario is not too different as only skipper Rayad Emrit looked capable of taking wickets and others need to chip in to support the veteran pacer.
