Jamaica Tallawahs vs St Lucia Kings

Jamaica Tallawahs will face St Lucia Kings in match three of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021 edition at the Warner Park, Basseterre in St Kitts on Friday.

The home team in this contest had an average outing in the 2020 edition where they managed to qualify for the playoffs, despite winning just three out of the 10 matches in the first round.

The management will be hoping that the players will put a much better display this time around and secure their place in the next round comfortably.

On the other hand, the visiting team in this fixture had an impressive time in the 2020 campaign — where they were participating with the name of St Lucia Zouks — as they ended the runners up after suffering an eight-wicket defeat against Trinbago Knight Riders in the final.

The management will be hoping that the change of name will bring more fortune to the franchise this time around.

Both teams have competed 15 times before in the history of CPL where the Tallawahs have a better record with nine wins compared to just six victories of the Kings.
