St Lucia Zouks (formerly known as St Lucia Stars from 2016–2019)[1] are the representative team of Saint Lucia in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) of cricket. It is one of the six teams created in 2013 for the inaugural season of the tournament. The Zouks won only 4 games out of 14 in the first two seasons finishing last and second last in the tournament respectively. The 2016 season showed their best record yet, winning 6 out of 10 games and finishing third in the league, the Zouks' highest CPL T20 finish to date.

Team logo as the St Lucia Stars, 2016-2019 seasons.

For the 2017 season, the franchise chose to rebrand under a new name and logo as the St Lucia Stars.

In August 2019, the St Lucia Stars franchise team was axed from the tournament, with the CPL looking to replace the team.[2] They returned as St Lucia Zouks later that month.[3]
