While the 2020 edition of the Caribbean Premier League appears to be a two-horse race, it could all turn out to be pretty tight as the tournament progresses. Both Jamaica Tallawahs and St Lucia Zouks may not be favorites to win the title, but they both feature some very talented players and are capable to topple any team on their day.
In the third match of the CPL-2020, are Jamaica Tallawahs and St Lucia Zouks set to take on each other and grab a stop in the top half of the table. These are still early days and any spot on the table will be temporary, but points on the board early in the tournament could be of massive advantage at the end. The match between the two sides is to be played at Brian Lara Cricket Academy, Tarouba, Trinidad, on 19th August.
Up until last year, Jamaica Tallawahs were one of the most popular teams. They had big names - the likes of Chris Gayle and Andre Russell available at their disposal but still had a terrible tournament. Everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong for them last year. Following rumors of infighting and poor results, they finished at the bottom of the ladder, and things can only get better for them.
Last year, the Tallawahs lost eight of the ten matches played and their bowling attack conceded the most number of runs in the tournament. They've reacted to their bottom of the table finish last year by buffing up their bowling attack. With the signings of Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Sandeep Lamichhanne, their spin department looks well-settled. To top that off, they have Oshane Thomas and Fidel Edwards, who both can pick up wickets up-front as well as at the death. The all-rounders in Andre Russell and Carlos Brathwaite complete their bowling attack, which appears to be well-balanced on all accounts.
Andre Russell is arguably Tallawahs' biggest strength, but his fitness will once again be the key for the team from Jamaica. Having said that, this reliance on Andre Russell could backfire for them as it happened last year when Russell had to miss five games due to fitness issues. In addition to Andre Russell, the likes of Glenn Phillips, Chadwick Walton, and Asif Ali will have a vital role to play. They all are known to play their shots and with Brathwaite available to bat late in the order, the Tallawahs bat deep. Having said that, Tallwahs lack an experienced batsman who can hold the innings together when the chips and down. That vulnerability might bite them when the chips are down and the situation demands some stability.
All in all, Jamaica Tallawahs appears to be a reasonably balanced side, but they are likely to struggle yet again, should Andre Rusell struggles once again, be it with his body or for form. On paper, Jamaica Tallwahs have a brutal batting unit that can destroy even the best bowling attacks. With a bowling attack that looks a lot better than last year's, they should fare a lot better than they did last year.

St Lucia Zouks has consistently under-performed in the Caribbean Premier League and it was no different last year as well. They had a dismal start to the tournament, winning just one of their first six matches. While they won fifty percent of their last four matches, they failed to climb any higher than the fifth spot on the ladder.
Over the history of CPL, the Zouks have made it out of the group stage only once. They had a reasonably good side last year, at least on paper, but with most of their talented players no longer available, the Zouks will once again find it difficult to finish in the top half of the table. St Lucia Zouks have an experienced leader in Darren Sammy, but lack of depth in batting as well as in bowling means that margin for error for Sammy would be little while marshaling the troops.
To add depth to their lineup, the Zouks have signed Mohammad Nabi, who is making a comeback to Caribbean Cricket after three years. He had a decent run last time around and is known for his accurate off-spinners and hard-hitting batting in the middle overs. He is a versatile T20 player and his experience of playing across the globe could come in handy for the Zouks.
Rakheem Cornwall may not be the fittest player of the competition, he is certainly one of the most popular. He did a decent job with the bat last year, scoring 254 runs at an excellent strike-rate and will be looking to do the job yet again. Although he was not as successful with the ball, he is more than capable with the ball, and the experience gained from playing against international teams, albeit in a different format, should immensely help in bowling.
In totality, St Lucia Zouks have aggressive players right from the top to the bottom, but performing consistently could be an issue. The absence of Colin Ingram, Anrich Nortje, and Rilee Rossouw will certainly be felt as the Zouks lack experience at the top of the order. Of the experienced lot, Roston Chase, their prime all-rounder, isn't really known for his exploits in this format of the game and Darren Sammy is certainly past his prime. For Zouks to do well, a lot will depend on their spinners and top-order, which looks to be a hit-or-miss kind of unit at first glance.

With showers expected in the evening, Duckworth Lewis might come into the picture and both the skippers will be wary of that. While the surface is expected to get difficult to score on, a bit of rain might make batting easier. Largely because of the chances of interruption and D/L method coming into picture, the captain winning the toss is expected to bowl first.

All the matches in this season are to be played at the same venue and we expect the surface to get slower and lower. In addition to that, there is likely to be rain in the morning and, therefore, the outfield might not be as fast as it generally is here on this ground. While there aren't expected to be any demons in the surface, scoring quickly won't be easy either. The ball is unlikely to come on the bat nice and hard and playing through the line will be difficult. We expect spinners to dominate yet again. Anything in excess of 165 could be a challenging total to chase down.

There isn't really a lot of difference between the two teams as far as Head-to-Head comparison is concerned. From of total of 13 matches played between the two sides, Jamaica Tallawahs have won eight whereas Zouks have emerged on top on five occasions. Having said that, St Lucia Zouks, this year, is more of a depleted version of themselves and might find it difficult to get going in crunch situations. Although they have a few immensely talented players, they lack experienced specialists, and performing consistently could be a challenge. The Tallawahs, on the other hand, appears to be a better-balanced unit with an excellent amalgamation of specialists and all-rounders. In addition to that, they have two nifty leg-spinners, who have proved their mettle in this format of the game. Jamaica Tallawahs should cruise to a win in the third match of CPL-2020.
With surface unlikely to be optimal for batting and both sides boasting off experienced bowlers, scoring quickly would be difficult. While Jamaica Tallawahs have capable batsmen who are known to hit big sixes, fetching an over of more than 20 runs will be a steep climb for them as well. For that reason, this bet appears to be a profitable proposition in this upcoming encounter.
While both sides have decent bowling attacks, it's the batting of St Lucia Zouks that makes the prospects to this bet bright. St Lucia Zouks have an array of hit-or-miss batsmen, who all are likely to give plenty of chances to Tallawahs' bowlers. On the contrary, Jamaica Tallawahs' have a better batting lineup and are unlikely to lose too many wickets. With Sandeep Lamichhane and Mujeeb Ur Rahman available, the chances of the top bowler of the match coming from the Tallawahs camp seem high. This is certainly one of the low risk - high rewards bets.
Even though it is a match early in the tournament and players might be jittery, extras being conceded could be a rare sight. That has largely to do with good bowling attacks of both sides. Most of the bowlers playing in this match are known for their accuracy and we are likely to see less than 10 wides conceded in this match.
Considering the campaigns of the two sides in 2019, batting doesn't seem to be a strong suit of either of them. On paper, however, Jamaica Tallawahs have a stronger opening pair with Glenn Phillips and Chadwick Walton having ample experience of playing T20 Cricket. We expect the pair to string a good opening partnership, at least better than that of St Lucia Zouks.
