Overview

The team at the bottom of the points table, St Lucia Zouks, have had a disappointing start to their 2016 Caribbean Premier League campaign, losing three while winning just one so far.
The Zouks outfit come into this clash on the back of three successive losses, struggling with both bat and ball. For a team consisting of players of the calibre of Shane Watson, David Miller, Darren Sammy and Mike Hussey, it must be disappointing not to perform at the level they are capable of.

Theirs has been a collective failure, with only Hussey and Johnson Charles scoring more than 100 while Watson is their leading wicket-taker with six scalps to his name. What is in their favour though, is that they have played only four games so far, giving them hopes of qualifying for the knock-out stages.

To do that, they will need to start winning games and continue that run throughout the next week of matches.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots find themselves in a similar spot of bother, registering just two points so far. Unlike the Zouks, they have played seven games, losing six and winning just one.
Despite having talents like Lendl Simmons, Carlos Brathwaite, Thisara Perera and skipper Faf du Plessis in their squad, the Patriots have failed to fire as a unit.

With just three games left, even if the Patriots win all their games they are not assured of a spot in the play-off stages.
