Match Preview

It is the last game in the league stage of the Caribbean Premier League 2020, and the St Lucia Zouks would be taking on the Jamaica Tallawahs. Both these sides have already made it to the semifinals and hence there won’t be much pressure on them to perform in this game. Both the camps would be looking to use this opportunity to build up momentum ahead of the semifinals.  

In the previous game between the two sides the Jamaica Tallawahs had registered a comfortable win in the game. They will be looking to carry this confidence into this game. St Lucia Zouks’ bowling attack hasn’t done well in the last two games and this looks one of their weak areas. It will be interesting to see which of the two sides is able to win this game and carry the confidence into the next round.

Teams Preview

St Lucia Zouks Preview

Darren Sammy’s side comes into this game with back to back losses. They lost the last game against Trinbago Knight Riders by 23 runs and will need to recover from this slump to win this game. They are already in the semifinals and Sammy would look for a better show from his side having lost to the Tallawahs earlier in the season.

Batting is looking strong for the side at the moment and Andre Fletcher will look to provide a good start alongside Mark Deyal. Kimani Melius, Mohammad Nabi and Najibullah Zardan have also done well on the middle order so far this season. In Scott Kuggelejin, Roston Chase and skipper Sammy their batting looks good down the order. They will be up against a good bowling attack and have to play well as a unit. 

It was a poor show from their bowlers in the last game and the side will look for a good start with the new ball from Kuggelejin and Nabi in this game. Kesrick Williams and Chase went for lot of runs in the last game and shall have to make improvements. Zahir Khan has enjoyed decent run with the ball and the side will expect him to bowl tight spells in this game. 

St Lucia Zouks Predicted Playing XI:

Daren Sammy (c), Kimani Melius, Mark Deyal, Andre Fletcher (wk), Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Leniko Boucher, Scott Kuggeleijn, Roston Chase, Kesrick Williams, Zahir Khan

Jamaica Tallawahs Preview

Rovman Powell’s side bowled poorly in the last game against Barbados Tridents to lose it by 7 wickets after their batsmen had put up a big score on the board. Having already earned their entry into the semifinals the side would look to win this game and get into the knockout stage with momentum on their side. They had won against the Zouks in the previous game this season and this will serve as a confidence booster. 

Their batting is looking good at the moment with Glenn Phillips and Jermaine Blackwood in great form. Blackwood played a good knock in the last game. Andre Russell has also played well in the last few games. Powell and Asif Ali make this middle order look very strong. With someone like Carlos Brathwaite towards the end, the side packs good punch in its batting. 

It is their bowling attack that will need to make improvements in this game. New ball pair of Oshane Thomas and Preston McSween was expensive in the last game and shall have to focus on bowling tighter lines in the next game. Mujeeb ur Rahman and Sandeep Lamichhane have bowled well this season and will be expected to inflict damage on the opponents. In Brathwaite and Russell they have good depth in the attack.

Jamaica Tallawahs Predicted Playing XI:

Rovman Powell (c), Glenn Phillips (wk), Nkrumah Bonner, Jermaine Blackwood, Andre Russell, Asif Ali, Carlos Brathwaite, Sandeep Lamichhane, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Preston McSween, Oshane Thomas

Weather Conditions


The skies over Trinidad would be clear on September 06 though we are likely to have odd clouds. The pitch has played well in the last few games after the initial overs where bowlers tend to enjoy good assistance from the surface. The side that bats first would be happy to get to a score of 160 runs.  

Venue Details

As a T20 venue Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad balances it out nicely between the batsmen and the bowlers. The bowlers have the edge in the early overs of the game where the ball does move a bit. Spinners have also done well as there is uneven bounce off the surface. Batsmen with big hitting abilities are able to take advantage of the shorter boundaries here. 

Toss: To Bowl

Teams have won more games at this venue chasing the score than batting first. It is always a difficult wicket to set a score and the side chasing the score can play according to the asking rate. Thus we see both the sides opting to bowl first in this game upon winning the toss and applying pressure on their opponents. 

Winning Prediction

There isn’t much of a context to this game as both the sides have earned a place in the semifinals. The result of this game won’t even change their semifinal draws. But the side winning this game will enter the knockout stage with the right frame of mind. The Zouks are coming in with two consecutive losses and their bowlers have looked slightly off form in the last few games. The Tallawahs on the other hand have a balanced side and having defeated the Zouks earlier in the season shall start favorites in this contest.
