JT vs SLK Match Preview

The Jamaican Tallawahs are being led by Brandon Kings this year and they succeeded in beating St Kits and Nevis Patriots in their last game by a handsome margin of 59 runs. This has kept their hopes alive for a place in the knockout stages of the competition. But they do have some concerns still with the bat and their top-order batting is still struggling. The Jamaican captain will be expecting his wards to go full throttle during the game as they are looking to win the encounter and move on to the next round of the competition.

Alex Hales and Brandon King make for a good opening pair and the team will require a good start from these openers. Kirk McKenzie and Shamarh Brooks will be handling the middle order and together with Imad Wasim will be looking to add quick runs. The Jamaican lower middle order has done a good job for their team. They can expect players such as Shamar Springer, Raymon Reifer, and Fabien Aleem to contribute to the team's score. The Jamaican bowling attack will rely on the likes of Imad Wasim, Green, and Mohammad Amir.

The St Lucia Kings side is being led by Sikandar Raza in this game. They did a fair job against Guyana Amazon Warriors to win the game by a margin of 7 wickets to book a place in the next round of the competition. Sikandar Raza will be pleased with the performance of his team after they were forced to endure a couple of losses. They will be keen to win this encounter and develop momentum while going into the Eliminator. Colin Munro has done a good job in his last couple of matches and will once again look to set up a good partnership with Johnson Charles.

Bhanuka Rajapaksa played a good hand in his last game with a match-winning knock. He adds strength to the middle order with some other players such as Sean Williams, Roston Chase, Matthew Forde, Roshon Primus, and the skipper Raza adding to the firepower of this line-up. Matthew Forde and Roston Chase will be keen to pick up early wickets as Jamaica is struggling near the top. The top bowler in the team is Alzarri Joseph. He will have to bowl well in the middle overs together with Raza.

Weather Report

Pitch Report

This game between Jamaica Tallawahs and St Lucia Kings will be played at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. This venue is considered to be one of the better places for T20 cricket in the Caribbean islands. There is something on offer for both batters and bowlers. Fast bowlers can get pace from the track and it is relatively easy to play through the line of the ball. The short boundaries at the venue mean there is full value for shots. As the game progresses, you can expect the spinners to come to the fore. But overall, it will be a batting-friendly track and the team batting first here will look to score at least 170 runs to feel secure.

Mohammad Amir has a great strike rate with the ball.

Mohammad Amir has picked up 14 wickets from his last 8 matches with a strike rate of 12.14.

Dream11 Prediction

During the tournament, the Jamaican team has made life tough for themselves. However, they can expect to qualify for the knockouts by registering a win in this game. they have a better run rate as well than the Royals and even if they lose this game, they may advance further. St Lucia Kings have struggled with their bowling in their last few matches and they will have to overcome this problem. Jamaica has a good batting order but they have been pretty inconsistent. They will be keen to get their act together to win this encounter. But we reckon they will. We will bet with Jamaica Tallawahs to win this contest.
