Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel humiliated St Lucia Zouks by a hefty margin of nine wickets in the 15th match of the CPL 2014. The first has emerged as a top team of the tournament by grabbing 10 points from 6 matches while losing just one of them. The latter is unable to win any of the five games they played so far and are still searching for their opening points.

Players to watch

Kevin O’Brien and Evin Lewis were instrumental openers in their previous encounter against the same rivals and posted 129 runs. The first remained unbeaten with 55, Lewis contributed 77 whereas their captain, Dwayne Bravo, and Darren Bravo are in great nick. Samuel Badree, Kevin Cooper and O’Brien are responding well with the ball.

Johnson Charles and Sohail Tanvir registered fifties in their last close match vs. Barbados Tridents that St Lucia Zouks lost by three wickets. The top and middle order batsmen along with their skipper, Darren Sammy, are badly needed to shine. Tino Best, Sohail Tanvir and Ray Jordan have accumulated just three wickets in the event and that reflects their depth in bowling.
