St Lucia Zouks vs Jamaica Tallawahs, CPL T20

St Lucia Zouks and Jamaica Tallawahs meet in the final league phase match of the 2020 Caribbean Premier League, with both teams looking to get back to winning ways before the semi-finals. The match takes place on September 6 at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy and the live action starts at 14:15 local time.

St Lucia Zouks have won five of their nine matches, but their batting has dipped in recent matches and they have dropped won from second place after back-to-back defeats to Guyana Amazon Warriors and Trinbago Knight Riders.

Jamaica Tallawahs have just three wins to their name, meanwhile, including their opening win against the Zouks. Defeat to Barbados Tridents last time out mean it is only the point they got for their rained off fixture against St Kitts & Nevis Patriots that has kept them clear in fourth place.

St Lucia Zouks Team News & Playing 11

St Lucia Zouks Team News

Roston Chase returned last time out but was down the batting order as the Zouks rearranged things up the top. Kimani Melius could make way for Rahkeem Cornwall for this game, but Mark Deyal and Andre Fletcher may stay swapped around at two and three respectively.

St Lucia Zouks Key Players

  • Andre Fletcher: Dropped to number three last time out, but seemed to enjoy the role as he hammered three sixes on his way to 42 from 27 balls.
  • Mohammad Nabi: Could not add to his 11 wickets last time out, but he bowled economically again last time out and hit two sixes in his brief batting innings too.
  • Scott Kuggeleijn: Moved to 14 wickets for the tournament as he claimed 2-35 last time out to continue his excellent wicket-taking form.

St Lucia Zouks Team Form

St Lucia Zouks have lost three of their last five games, with their form having dipped towards the end of the league phase. They were well short with the bat against Guyana Amazon Warriors and had too much to do against Trinbago last time out too. Set 176 to win, they could only reach 152/7 after a slow start.

St Lucia Zouks Predicted Playing 11

Rahkeem Cornwall, Mark Deyal, Andre Fletcher (wk), Najibullah Zadran, Roston Chase, Mohammad Nabi, Darren Sammy (c), Scott Kuggeleijn, Kesrick Williams, Javelle Glen, Zahir Khan

Jamaica Tallawahs Team News & Playing 11

Jamaica Team News

Chadwick Walton has paid the price for his poor form in CPL 2020 and, with Jermaine Blackwood smashing 74 from 59 balls at the top of the order last time out, it seems the Tallawahs will open with Blackwood and Phillips. Preston McSween also came into the team but he was expensive last time out.

Jamaica Key Players

  • Glenn Phillips: Overshadowed by Blackwood at the top of the order last time out but he has hit 265 runs for the Tallawahs so far this season.
  • Andre Russell: He is currently not bowling, but he has still hit back-to-back half-centuries, and three in his last four innings in total, to prove his quality.
  • Mujeeb Ur Rahman: The Afghan teenager has taken 13 wickets so far and will be keen to get back to his bamboozling best in time for the semi-finals.

Jamaica Team Form

Jamaica have lost to Trinbago Knight Riders and Barbados Tridents in their last two completed matches, either side of a rain-ruined no result against St Kitts & Nevis Patriots. Last time out, Jermaine Blackwood (74) and Andre Russell (54) helped them to 161/4 but they suffered a seven-wicket defeat as Barbados finally found some batting form.

STZ vs JT Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper(s)

    Glenn Phillips is still a key batsman at the top of the order for Jamaica Tallawahs and Andre Fletcher is likewise for St Lucia. Both are worth selecting. Chadwick Walton’s poor batting form and subsequent dropping from the team show why he is best left unpicked.

  • Batsmen

    Mark Deyal and Jermaine Blackwood both moved up to open the batting for their respective teams last time out and both went well with the bat, which considering they are both eight credits makes them excellent value. Najibullah Zadran is nine credits but he has batted well so far.

  • All-rounder(s)

    Andre Russell is 10.5 credits but he is in outstanding batting form, even if he has not been bowling of late. Mohammad Nabi is ten credits and has proved a key all-rounder so far. The next highest scorer is Roston Chase, but he has not made a big impact of late – Carlos Brathwaite could be a better-value pick at nine credits.

  • Bowlers

    Picking Brathwaite over Chase means you can afford both Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Scott Kuggeleijn – key bowlers in top wicket-taking form – with no other compromise in your bowling attack. It leaves 8.5 credits for the third bowler, and Sandeep Lamichhane looks the best option, ahead of Fidel Edwards, at that price.

  • Captain/vice-captain

    Even though he is not bowling at the moment, Andre Russell still looks a great option for captain, given his outstanding batting form. Scott Kuggeleijn and Mujeeb Ur Rahman are in wicket-taking form and Mohammad Nabi is a key all-rounder, so all three are good vice-captain options. Kuggeleijn’s wickets could give him the edge now.

STZ vs JT Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Mark Deyal, Jermaine Blackwood, Najibullah Zadran

  • All Rounder:Andre Russell (c), Carlos Brathwaite, Mohammad Nabi

  • Wicket Keeper:Glenn Phillips, Andre Fletcher

  • Bowler:Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Scott Kuggeleijn (vc), Sandeep Lamichhane
