About the Match

Title favorites, Jamaica Tallawahs, will lock horns against St Lucia Zouks, who are fighting to seal a place in the playoffs round of Caribbean Premier League season 2016.

Jamaica Tallawahs

After losing to Guyana Amazon Warriors earlier in the season, Jamaica Tallawahs have only journeyed upwards while building on their strengths to become a CPL force to reckon with. Before the commencement of the CPL tournament this year, it was widely assumed that Chris Gayle would play a pivotal role in Jamaica's long lasting success in this season. However, on the contrary, Chris Gayle has accumulated only nine runs in his last three innings with individual scores of zero, one and eight. The Tallawahs, regardless, have come out victorious in all three matches, which puts light on the fact that the CPL's Jamaican outfit is not a one man show. Indeed, Tallawahs have top-quality players who have been at their best throughout their CPL 2016 campaign. In their most recent outing, Jamaica Tallawahs wrapped up a total of 195 against Barbados Tridents, well supported by a brilliant innings from opener Chadwick Walton, who smashed five sixes and nine fours to contribute 97 off 54 balls. The Tridents pushed hard but only to run themselves out of batsmen as they were bowled out for 159 with 14 more balls to spare. Dale Steyn ended up with fantastic figures of 4/27.

St Lucia Zouks

Back from the dead, St Lucia Zouks have defied all expectations to be standing in a pole position where they have given themselves every chance to qualify for the knockouts. After winning the opening fixture of CPL season 2016, the Zouks lost three consecutive games. The common factor in all these four matches played was that they were away fixtures. However, since the Darren Sammy XI has been deployed at home, they have wrecked havoc. The Sammy inspired Zouks won their first three games while succumbing to defeat in their fourth and last home game but only just. Had it not been for the heroics of Umar Akmal as he hit Jerome Taylor for three straight sixes and a four in the death overs, the Zouks were well set to claim another win. Nonetheless, Darren Sammy, in particular, came back to life while playing in home conditions. This winning streak has provided them with the needed jump to push through the fourth position on the points table, leaving Barbados Tridents in fifth.

Verdict

So far, only a single game has been played in Florida, and the ball was coming nicely on to the bat. This particular feature will give Jamaica Tallawahs a certain edge over their rivals since Jamaican batting lineup is of the highest quality. However, the Tallawahs haven't played a game since the last nine days which means they have had their fair share of the resting period as they come into this game fresh as anything. The Zouks, on the other hand, were beaten in their last game as Trinbago's Umar Akmal gave them a serious bashing. Both teams are without their South African prodigies as David Miller and Dale Steyn have flown back home. In the light of an overall assessment, Jamaica Tallawahs are tipped to beat St Lucia Zouks in this important fixture
