Saint Lucia Kings vs Jamaica Tallawahs Prediction
We expect Saint Lucia Kings to put in a better batting performance than on Sunday when they were dismissed for 79 but they will be up against an in-form and very confident Jamaica Tallawahs. A lot will depend on how many runs Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Colin Munro can make for the Kings, but overall we are backing Jamaica Tallawahs to win the match.
