Jamaica Tallawahs – St Lucia Zouks Match Prediction | 12-09-2019 20:00

Colin Munro is flying over to the Caribbean from Sri Lanka, where he has been with New Zealand, but this will be the third and final game he misses Lendl Simmons will continue in his place. Ali Khan replaced Anderson Phillip for the win against Jamaica Tallawahs, with the American opening the bowling and dismissing Chris Gayle. The decision to push Tion Webster up the order paid dividends last time out, meanwhile.

In their two forms, the Trinbago franchise has an excellent record against St Lucia. The Knight Riders (and previously Red Steel) have won nine of their 11 completed games against the Zouks/Stars, including each of the last five. St Lucia have won just two by contrast. Last season, the Knight Riders bowled the Stars out for 95 in reply to 195/6 in their first meeting, before Darren Bravos 94* from 36 balls helped them chase 213 to win the second meeting by five wickets.

Tion Webster proved that he is excellent value last time out, meanwhile, and opening the batting he can deliver a good return on his 8.5 credits. Kieron Pollard has hit 80 runs in two games so far and the Trinbago Knight Riders captain is well worth picking up at 9.5 credits as a result. Colin Munro is still away, for one more game, so Lendl Simmons will want to deliver in what could be his final game.

The Knight Riders sent in Sunil Narine at one drop which is unusual but the fact that Simmons was dismissed in the second over helped Narine make use of the batting powerplay, something which comes naturally to him. On the back of a half-century from Webster and handy contributions from Denesh Ramdin and Kieron Pollard, Trinbago Knight Riders posted 191 runs on the board. Saint Lucia Zouks lost their first match against Guyana Amazon Warriors by 13 runs. Trinbago Knight Riders beat St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the Caribbean Premier League 2019 opener by 11 runs and successive wins hold them in good stead for this encounter. Trinbago Knight Riders comprehensively beat Jamaica Tallawahs in their last match by 22 runs. In their match against Tallawahs, the opening partnership of Lendl Simmons and John Webster did not click. Although the Zouks bowlers restricted Amazon Warriors to 155, their batting let them down as the entire team could only manage 142; Rahkeem Cornwall and Najibullah Zadran being their leading batsman. Sunil Narine and Jimmy Neesham then picked up two wickets each to restrict the Jamaica Tallawahs short of the target.

But there are some glaring issues there as well. Gayle has still got it in him but Russells fitness and Powells inconsistency will be a challenge. Some serious challenge for the opposition bowlers there. Picture this batting line-up Chris Gayle as the opener and Andre Russell and Rovman Powell to form the middle-order. Yes, Gayle is back with Tallawahs after two seasons and will also lead the side.

Even with the big names of t20 cricket like David Warner, Lendl Simmons, and Mitchell McClenaghan, they are not considered as a strong side in this tournament. On the other side, The St. In the first match, they were totally depended on Andre Russell to bail them out with the ball and later with the bat. Lucia Stars were all out just for 95 in their first match and then they failed to chase 141 after being 113 for 2 in the seventeenth over. The bowlers of Jamaica Tallawahs gave more than 200 runs and after that their top order was collapsed. Jamaica Tallawahs must glad for their opening match but they would not want to repeat the mistakes that they made in the first match.

Chris Gayle, who led Jamaica Tallawahs in their opening game against Trinbago Knight Riders, has passed on the baton to Rovman Powell who captained the side last time out against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots.
