JAM vs SLZ Dream11 Prediction: The third match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 will be played between Jamaica Tallawahs and St Lucia Zouks on 19th August. The first round of matches is being played at The Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba. Both the teams are coming into the competition after the disappointments of the last year. Both teams occupied the last two spots and were out early from the play-offs race. We will preview the match in our Dream 11 fantasy cricket.
In head to head comparison, Jamaica Tallawahs are enjoying a upper hand over St Lucia Zouks with a 8-5 lead from 13 matches. However in the last season, St Lucia Zouks beat Jamaica Tallawahs on both the occasions. Notably, St Lucia Zouks are having the lowest win percentage in the history of the league compared to any other teams.
Rovman Powell will lead the Tallawahs for this season with a solid core of hard-hitters in the batting lineup. They have tried to address their bowling to an extent this year after the debacle last year. On the other hand, St Lucia Zouks under the captainship of Daren Sammy is lacking the quality to say the least. They have clearly the weakest side on paper coming into the competition.
Pitch and Conditions
Thunderstorms are predicted on the match-day at Tarouba but the forecast is not that bad. Interim sunny spells will be enough to constitute a match at least. Humid conditions are expected during the match with the temperature ranging between 30 to 32 degrees Celsius. This match will be played on a fresh pitch but same nature is expected. Slower bowlers will enjoy their time at this year’s CPL.

Jamaica Tallawahs Team News
Jamaica Tallawahs will be putting their faith in the opening partnership of Glenn Phillips and Chadwick Walton. At number 3, Jermaine Blackwood is coming into this season with an impressive tour of England on his back recently.
The middle-order of Rovman Powell, Andre Russell, Asif Ali and Carlos Brathwaite is oozing power of highest quality in T20 cricket. Jamaica would be looking to maximize the use of their talisman Andre Russell.
Sandeep Lamichhane and Mujeeb Ur Rahman will be taking care of spin-bowling department. Interestingly, both Jamaica spinners are experienced power-play bowlers in T20. Oshane Thomas and Fidel Edwards are expected to feature in the playing XI but their death bowling can be an area of concern for the think tank.

St Lucia Zouks Team News
Rahkeem Cornwell is playing as a proper batsman in T20 franchise cricket. He bowled very limited number of overs in the last season also. He will open the batting for the Zouks along with Andre Fletcher.
Afghan pair of Najibullah Zadran and Mohammad Nabi will be sharing the heavy workloads along with the captain Daren Sammy in the middle order for St Lucia Zouks.
According to some reports, Scott Kuggeleijn hasn’t been given the NOC from New Zealand Cricket (NZC). So, he won’t be available for this year’s CPL. Chemar Holder, Kesrick Williams and Zahir Khan Pakteen will certainly start for the Zouks.

For Small Leagues
Andre Russell doesn’t need much of an introduction in T20 arena. After missing out on most of the action last year, Andre Russell will be back playing for his home franchise this year. He has also announced that this will be his last season for Jamaica. Hence, he will be hoping to make it special for both him individually and as a team also.
Glenn Phillips has been a consistent performer for Jamaica Tallawahs for last couple of seasons. Last year, he was the only notable batsman for his team with 374 runs at a strike-rate of 144.96. He is the one player who can give you the best captaincy choice for this clash.
Sandeep Lamichhane can provide everything that a T20 captain can ask from him. He bowls in Power-play, he bowls in the middle and he is effective in any given situation. Clearly, if you are looking for a leg-spin trump card, here is your man.
For Grand Leagues
Rahkeem Cornwell is having a very good record against Jamaica Tallawahs. Last year, he slammed 75 0ff 30 balls & 51 off 25 deliveries against them and helped the Zouks to register rare success. He can be your logical captain’s pick for this encounter.
Mohammad Nabi will have an important role to play if St Lucia Zouks have any hopes of doing well this year. He is their only experienced superstar as far as International players are concerned. He is coming off from a reasonably good BBL season with Melbourne Renegades.
Carlos Brathwaite is another good option for Grand Leagues because his bowling will be utilized more this year with the team combination that the Tallawahs are having. He is an excellent finisher and primed to have a good CPL. He had a good run with Peshawar Zalmi during the PSL earlier this year.
Who will win JAM vs SLZ Today Match Prediction?
As per our Dream 11 prediction, Jamaica Tallawahs look strong compared to St Lucia Zouks and they are favourites to win this encounter. But if the match is shortened due to the weather around, then St Lucia Zouks will have a fair chance of upsetting the Tallawahs.
