Head to Head

The St Lucia Kings have won three of their last five against the Jamaica Tallawahs. In their last match the Kings won a tight encounter by 11 runs.

Jamaica Tallawahs Form

The Jamaica Tallawahs finished the 2020 CPL in fourth place, winning just three of their 10 matches. Despite the poor season they still qualified in the final playoff spot.

As was expected the Tallawahs crashed out of the competition at the semi-final stage, losing to eventual winners, Trinbago Knight Riders.

The Tallawahs have won the Caribbean Premier League on two previous occasions in 2013 and 2016. They have however not made the final since then.

Jamaica Tallawahs Team News

The Jamaica Tallawahs have plenty of quality within their ranks. Their biggest player is certain Andre Russell and should he hit some form, they will be a difficult team to stop.

Asif Ali and Nkrumah Bonner offers more international quality while the likes of Glenn Phillips will join in a couple of weeks.

St Lucia Kings Form

St Lucia Kings (previously known as St Lucia Zouks) had a good 2020. They finished third in on the CPL table but defeated the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the semi-final to reach the final.

There the Kings lost to the Trinbago Knight Riders but big things are expected this season. They have never previously won the competition and indeed it was their first ever final in 2020.

Going one better will be tough this year given the strength of the squads. Of all the squads the Kings have the least international experience.

St Lucia Kings Team News

Darren Sammy will captain the St Lucia Kings and will need to have a big season himself. Another key figure will be Afghanistan allrounder, Mohammad Nabi.
