CPL 2019: St Lucia Zouks Move Fourth in Points Table After 20-run Win Over St Kitts & Nevis Patriots

Three wickets each by Hardus Viljoen and Kesrick Williams helped St Lucia Zouks notch a 20-run win over the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots at the Daren Sammy International Stadium in St Lucia on Tuesday. Zouks now move to the fourth position in the points table courtesy this win.

Batting first, Zouks reached 165/6 in their 20 overs, largely due to a late flourish by Daren Sammy lower down the order where he slammed 19-ball 30. In that bid, he also stitched a partnership of 56 with Christopher Barnwell, that helped Zouks' cause.

In reply, Patriots could only reach 145/9 in their allotted overs, and kept losing wickets regularly. Though they had a good start and were 28/0 at the end of 3.4 overs, but the wickets of Devon Thomas and Evin Lewis changed the complexion of the game.

Then Laurie Evans and Mohammad Hafeez took the task of rebuilding the innings and stitched a partnership of 49 runs. But that did not prove enough and the Patriots eventually fell short by 20 runs.

Earlier in the day, Rakheem Cornwall and Andre Fletcher got their side to a solid start and had an opening stand of 34. There were contributions from every batsman, but none of them could really go on to make a fifty. That meant, that Zouks gave away an excellent start of 72/1 in seven overs, to finish at 165.

In the bowling department, Hafeez and Alzarri Joseh shone for the Patriots and returned with three and two wickets respectively.

Brief scores: St Lucia Zouks 165/6 in 20 overs (Andre Fletcher 36; Mohammad Hafeez 3-22) bt St Kitts & Nevis Patriots 145/9 in 20 overs (Mohammad Hafeez 29; Hardus Viljoen 3-14) by 20 runs.
