St Lucia Zouks will take on the defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders in a CPL 2016 encounter at the Darren Sammy National Stadium in Gros Islet on Tuesday. This is a crucial fixture for both the sides as they are eyeing the top four spots at the end of the league stage of CPL 2016. 

Zouks are in red hot form at the moment as they have won three matches in a row at their home ground and they will be the favourites to win this encounter against a struggling Knight Riders side as well.

Darren Sammy-led Zouks have already reached the top half of the CPL 2016 points table with these thumping victories and they will want to continue with the momentum and displace the Guyana Amazon Warriors from the second spot. 

Knight Riders, on the other hand, cannot afford to lose this match at any cost as it will put a huge dent on their chances of making it to the semi-final of CPL 2016. 

For Knight Riders, their star players, apart from Hashim Amla, need to step up. Sunil Narine, skipper Dwayne Bravo himself, Brendon McCullum and others all need to come up with a better show against Zouks on Tuesday. Or else, it will not take much time for the red-hot Zouks to take the game away from the Knight Riders. 

Expected playing XI: 

St Lucia Zouks: Johnson Charles, Shane Watson, Mike Hussey, Andre Fletcher (wk), David Miller, Darren Sammy (C), Keddy Lesporis, Kyle Mayers, Delorn Johnson, Shane Shillingford, Jerome Taylor.

Trinbago Knight Riders: Hashim Amla, Brendon McCullum, Colin Munro, William Perkins, Umar Akmal, Dwayne Bravo (C), Denesh Ramdin (wk), Kevon Cooper, Sunil Narine, Suliemann Benn, Ronsford Beaton.
