Jamaica Tallawahs (Playing XI): Kennar Lewis, Chadwick Walton(w), Haider Ali, Rovman Powell(c), Shamarh Brooks, Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Chris Green, Migael Pretorius, Veerasammy Permaul, Imran Khan
Saint Lucia Kings (Playing XI): Rahkeem Cornwall, Andre Fletcher(w), Faf du Plessis(c), Roston Chase, Mark Deyal, Tim David, Keemo Paul, Wahab Riaz, Usman Qadir, Obed McCoy, Kesrick Williams
Both team captains at the toss
Chadwick Walton – Not a bad toss to lose. The batting unit has to come to the party, the batsmen need to score runs consistently. We have Imad Wasim, but unfortunately he’ll not play today. Looks a bit tacky, but think the ball will come nicely onto the bat
Faf du Plessis – About 95% okay, but I am told I can play some cricket and so here I am. Big shoes to fill, we have some new guys in. Looking to bowl, not sure about the wicket, will look to restrict them to a low score
CPL 2021 JAM vs SLK Preview
The Jamaica Tallawahs will take on the St Lucia Kings in match three of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL T20). The game will be played at Warner Park in Basseterre, St Kitts and will kick off at 7:30 PM IST on Friday, August 27. The game will see several IPL stars in action, headlined by KKR star Andre Russell and CSK’s Faf du Plessis.
Jamaica Tallawahs are dependent on Andre Rusell to perform, and a lot will depend on the all-rounders form this season. Their line-up is filled with heavy hitters and right-handers, which could cause them trouble against bowlers who take the ball away. Barring Russell, the side doesn’t boast enough international or T20 pedigree, and will need a little more than punching above their eight to finish in the playoff spot.

Saint Lucia have a new identity following their takeover by IPL 2021 franchise Punjab Kings. The Saint Lucia Kings reached the final last season under Darren Sammy, but the legendary West Indian captain has now joined the coaching staff. Faf du Plessis will lead the side which will miss Afghanistan trio Mohammad Nabi, Najibullah Zadran and Zahir Khan but have enough homegrown and overseas quality to make it to the knockouts.
