The Jamaica Tallawahs posted a massive total of 241 runs in their previous encounter courtesy a century by Chris Gayle but were unfortunately disappointed with a defeat eventually. On the other hand, the Zouks have failed to fire from all guns so far and hence ended up losing both their matches until now.
Sunny weather with merely 6% chances of rain and the temperature ranging around 31 degrees Celsius is expected during the course of the game.
Sabina Park would most probably present a peach of a batting track to both the teams and hence yet another high-scoring match could be on the cards.
Predicted Playing XI:
Chris Gayle’s century in their last game sparked up the tournament and hence he could be furthermore expected to carry his touch into this game as well. Andre Russell and Oshane Thomas are the other crucial players for the Tallawahs.
Chris Gayle, Glenn Phillips (wk), Chadwick Walton, Andre Russell, Rovman Powell (c), George Worker, Shamar Springer, Steven Jacobs, Jerome Taylor, Christopher Lamont, Oshane Thomas
St. Lucia Zouks XI:
Zouks boast of a solid middle-order as the trio of John Campbell, Najibullah Zadran and Thisara Perera will be expected to shoulder the major chunk of their responsibilities. Darren Sammy’s captaincy will be key to how they fare from hereon in the competition as well.
Andre Fletcher (wk), Rahkeem Cornwall, John Campbell, Najibullah Zadran, Daren Sammy (c), Thisara Perera, Andre McCarthy, Kesrick Williams, Obed McCoy, Fawad Ahmed, Kavem Hodge
Chris Gayle and Andre Russell are absolute must-picks in the lineup considering the sort of impact that they can have if they get in the groove in this game. Chadwick Walton and Oshane Thomas are others who can earn a considerable number of points through their prowess in their respective fields.
