The points table doesn’t reflect the potential of Saint Lucia Kings. They may have lost two back-to-back games, but the squad strength is something one cannot overlook. 

Alzarri Joseph showed his big-hitting skills in the last game where he scored an unbeaten 29 off 18 balls at number 6. He was promoted to bat ahead of Tim David, David Wiese, and Scott Kuggeleijn. 

That shows just how deep the Kings’ batting lineup is and also the kind of variety they’ve got in their batting department. Jamaica Tallawahs are on a roll. Not only have they won back-to-back games but the nature of these wins has been mighty impressive.

Mohammad Amir delivered a brilliant spell of 3 for 22 in their last match against Guyana where Chris Green finished his 4 overs with a maiden and just 5 runs from his spell without a wicket. This promises to be an exciting and close encounter between the top and the bottom-placed teams in CPL 2022. 

St Lucia Kings Preview

The runners-up from last season are looking for their first win of CPL 2022. They were unlucky in their last match as the DLS came into the picture and in spite of some inspiring performances from skipper Faf and Alzarri Joseph in the run-chase, the Kings lost by 11 runs.

With Johnson Charles, Faf du Plessis, and Mark Deyal in the top 3, Saint Lucia Kings have a solid top-order that can take the game away from the opposition. Now that Tim David and David Wiese are also in the playing XI, the Kings’ lineup looks deep and has the potential to chase down totals.

Not only has the batting department benefited from the recent additions, but the bowling also has more variety now. Mark Deyal, Wiese, Kuggeleijn, and Joseph can make a huge dent in the Tallawahs' batting lineup if they find their rhythm.

There are around 7 bowling options for skipper Faf du Plessis who is one of the most experienced players in this format. While Kuggeleijn can be expensive, he also has a knack for breakthroughs. 

Wiese, another experienced T20 player, can deliver with both bat and ball in tight situations in the death overs. There is no reason to believe Saint Lucia Kings are the underdogs here. They may be on the back foot due to consecutive losses, but they have all it takes to beat Tallawahs.

St Lucia Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Johnson Charles (wk), Faf du Plessis (c), Mark Deyal, Roston Chase, Roshon Primus, Tim David, David Wiese, Scott Kuggeleijn, Alzarri Joseph, Jeavor Royal, Preston McSween

Jamaica Tallawahs Preview

Captain Rovman Powell is in great touch with the bat and has been unbeaten so far at number 4. Like the opposition, Tallawahs also have a deep lineup with Imad Wasim, Fabian Allen and Chris Green at 6, 7, and 8. 

If the top-order of Brandon King and Kennar Lewis gets Jamaica off a good start and the skipper anchors the innings around him, the lower-order batsmen like Fabian Allen and Chris Green can take more risks to give the side a great finish.

On a ground where batting wasn’t easy, and a majority of games were won by teams batting second, Jamaica Tallawahs scored 183 runs for the loss of just 2 wickets. This shows that the ground and venue stats can’t hold the Tallawahs down. 

Jamaica promoted Shamarh Brooks to number 3 in the last game where they were chasing 143 runs against Guyana. However, the 33-year-old batsman was out for a duck on the second delivery he faced. Considering his strike rate of 107 from 10 T20I innings, Brooks doesn’t seem to be a promising number 3 in this format of the game. The top 4 of this batting lineup are key to Jamaica’s success.

Jamaica Tallawahs Predicted Playing XI:

Brandon King, Kennar Lewis, Shamarh Brooks, Amir Jangoo (wk), Rovman Powell (c), Fabian Allen, Imad Wasim, Chris Green, Mohammad Amir, Migael Pretorius, Nicholson Gordon

Jamaica Tallawahs Actual Playing XI:

Migael Pretorius, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Amir, Joshua James, Rovman Powell, Shamarh Brooks, Christopher Green, Raymon Reifer, Kennar Lewis, Brandon King, Fabian Allen

Weather Conditions

The pitch offers support for fast bowlers and has historically favoured teams batting second. Fair competition between bat and ball can be expected from this pitch. The weather forecast for the match day predicts showers with a high of 31 degrees Celsius.

Venue Details

The venue for this match is Darren Sammy National Cricket Ground in Gros Islet, Saint Lucia. This venue has seen an equal number of wins between teams batting first and second in T20 internationals. The average 1st innings score at this venue is 160 runs.

Toss: To Bowl

The teams batting second have won most of the domestic T20s played here. Both teams are most likely to opt to bowl first on winning the toss. The ground is not a high-scoring one given the average 1st inning score of 160 runs. As such, even if batting isn’t easy on the surface, and the weather conditions favour the bowlers, the team chasing a total will have an advantage.

The toss is clearly important in this fixture and the team opting to bowl first will start with a clear advantage. However, considering the strengths of both teams, our prediction reckons Saint Lucia Kings are likely to find their first win of the season and will start as our favourites.

Our prediction is for Saint Lucia Kings to win the match
