One of the many T20 leagues that have emerged all around the world, the Caribbean Premier League has a unique flair to it. The players from the isle enjoy their cricket and so do the fans. It has also gained a lot of popularity among viewers around the globe.
The second game of the CPL will be played between the St Lucia Zouks and the Trinidad and Tobago Red Steels. Both teams have some excellent players who know their game pretty well. The previous games between the two teams have always been exciting and this year, it can only get better.
The home game for the Zouks will be played on the 21st of June at the Beausejour Cricket Ground in St Lucia. It will start at 4:00 pm local time. The pitch at St Lucia has always assisted the bowlers but we can expect some fireworks with just 20 over’s for a team to play.
The Trinidad and Tobago team has a star studded line up and has some genuine match winners. On their day, T&T can run away with the game and give the opponents no chance whatsoever. The Zouks who themselves have a decent squad will be vary of this and will want to start their campaign against an impressive win against one of the best teams in the competition.
St. Lucia Zouks have a pretty good chance of beating T&T as the initial games in the competitions are used by the teams to get used to the conditions. However, any complacency by the Zouks will hit them hard and the T&T can easily run away with the game.
If the T&T players get into their groove quickly, it will be interesting to see how Zouks can respond. But from the outset, T&T will be quietly confident that they can walk away with a victory.
