The 18th match of the Caribbean Premier League 2019 will be played between St Lucia Zouks and Trinbago Knight Riders at Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet in St Lucia.


Trinbago Knight Riders have suffered only one defeat and that too in their last match against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, wherein despite scoring 216 runs, they had to go to a super over and Carlos Brathwaite proved to be their nemesis with both bat and ball.

Darren Bravo, Lendl Simmons and Kieron Pollard, who came out to bat for TKR in the super over could only manage five runs as opposed to the Patriots' 18.

Despite that, Trinbago Knight Riders are sitting comfortably at the second place in the CPL 2019 points table with four wins and one loss from five matches. They have eight points and a net run rate of +0.97.Saint Lucia Zouks, on the other hand, have just one win and have lost the remaining three games, which is why, they have only two points and a net run rate of - 0.691.

Lendl Simmons has been the most successful batsman for TKR with 261 runs from five matches at an average of over 50. Kieron Pollard and Colin Munro have also been good. All-rounder James Neesham has picked the most wickets for the team and will remain a vital cog despite going for more than 60 runs in the last match.

Rahkeem Cornwall and Obed McCoy are the leading batsman and bowler for St Lucia Zouks respectively.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

St Lucia Zouks- Andre Fletcher, Rahkeem Cornwall, Kavem Hodge, Colin de Grandhomme, Daren Sammy, Roland Cato, Thisara Perera, Kesrick Williams, Hardus Viljoen, Obed McCoy, Fawad Ahmed
