St Lucia Zouks will have kept their playoff hopes alive with an impressive win over St Kitts and Nevis Patriots this (Wednesday) morning. As they host table toppers Guyana Amazon Warriors, the Darren Sammy-led squad will be eyeing a big upset to further consolidate their position for a last-four berth. The home team is faced up with an uphill task.
The task at hand is not at all easy for the St Lucia team, as their rivals tomorrow (Thursday) morning have conquered all in the six-match winning run to top the CPL 2019 table with 12 points.
Darren Sammy will like to keep the momentum going with the willow and in leadership, taking motivation from the fact that a win can place them in line to topple St Kitts and Nevis for the third position. Four point separate two teams, but St Kitts and Nevis have played nine games to St Lucia’s seven.
Guyana is one team that has seen all its gun blazing and lending a perfect balance to their quest for the CPL 2019 title. Chris Green, Imran Tahir, Shaoib Malik, Kieron Pollard, Pooran Hemraj, Simron Hetmeyer, Shadab Khan have all clicked in one or the other game to keep the sides slate clean and winning run intact.
Skipper Sammy, Andre Fletcher, Mohd Hafeez will have to carry their form from the last game, while the team will be looking forward to the likes of Lasith Malinga to deliver when it matters the most.
