St Lucia Zouks vs Jamaica Tallawahs: CPL Match 24 Preview

Match Details:

Series/tournament: Caribbean Premier League

Venue: Darren Sammy Stadium - Gros Inlet, Saint Lucia

Date: September 28, 2019

Time: 5:30 a.m. IST

Match Preview:

Jamaica Tallawahs are currently last in the points table with six losses in eight games and must beat their rivals St Lucia Zouks in the upcoming clash to stay alive in the competition. They did beat Barbados Tridents in their last match, however, which should give them some sort of confidence going forward. After getting restricted to only 127 against the Tridents, the bowlers from Jamaica did a fine job as they defended the target successfully. While their bowling unit inspires confidence, Jamaica's batting, however, has been unable to get its act together, which remains a worry moving forward.  

St Lucia, on the other hand, faced a loss in their last game - to table-toppers Guyana Amazon Warriors. They have been inconsistent thus far, but will take heart from the fact that they will be playing at home.  

Weather Conditions: There is no prediction of rain for match day, with clear skies expected to greet us. The temperature will be in the high 20s, and a full 40-over game is on the cards.

Pitch Conditions: The wickets at St Lucia are typically fast and flat, which means that batters can hang in there and play their big shots. The even bounce does get the bowlers in the game as well, with both spinners and seamers capable of getting help.
