JAM vs SLZ Dream11 : Bottom of the table clash sees two winless sides fight it out against each other for shot at registering their first win of the season.
For our opponents today, the opening exchanges of the seventh edition of the Caribbean Premier League have been stern test. Both outfits find themselves languishing in the trenches of the points tally, having registered 0 wins in between them in the four outfits they have scoured in, an ordeal which needs snapping out of immediately for either side.
With just six teams plying their skill set in the league, both Jamaica Tallawahs and St Lucia Zouks will be well aware that the margins for error are extremely bare if any at all. The competition for a spot in the top 4 has already been made clear with the clamour for a place in the semi-finals growing after just a couple of encounters, a narrative which is set to see today’s clash be contested competitively and in feisty manner.
Ahead of today’s fixture, Jamaica Tallawahs will be rueing their luck with side have faltered in defence of what looked like to be a certain winning score in the previous match. Despite raking up a colossal score of 241, the outfit had to face bitter dejection as St Kitts and Nevis Patriots ended up making a mockery of what looked to be an improbable score to peel past.
Despite that 3 wicket defeat, Jamaica Tallawahs will be making an advent into today’s encounter knowing that their batting order has stood firm through two arduous tests, a department where St Lucia Zouks have failed miserably. Both their batting and bowling department have failed in tandem, leaving the sides facing two sordid defeats, the most recent being a 7 wicket defeat to Trinbago Knight Riders who chased down the 166 target infront of them with ease.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Usually a good wicket to bat on, today’s surface promises to be no different with the ball coming onto the bat nicely, allowing the batsmen to cream their way to the fence with consummate ease. There will be movement in the early exchanges, especially for the pacers with the deviation on offer leading the side winning the toss choosing to field first on this wicket.

JAM vs SLZ Match Prediction
Given the conditions and surface prevelant today, Jamaica Tallawahs look likely to emerge as the winners from this clash. The side have been massively let down by their bowling but there are hardly any faults to be traversed in their batting order which has fulfilled its duties impeccably till now.
In what promises to be a high scoring encounter, Tallawahs immense pool of clean swatters of the ball should see them bat their way to a win today.

JAM vs SLZ Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
After his 26 runs in 32 balls, we are selecting St Lucia Zouks opener, Andre Fletcher for this encounter. The batter has been in good form across the two matches he’s played in and with him coming out to open for his side, he offers prime value in this slot.
JAM vs SLZ Dream11 Batsmen
After putting on a hefty score of 241 in the previous encounter, it was only befitting to roll in the selections from Jamaica Tallawahs first in this segment. The side have impressed as a batting unit till now should emanate the previous encounter’s display against a dwindling bowling setup.
The first player to come in from the side is Chris Gayle after the opener’s 116 in 62 balls in the bygone clash. A 36 ball 72 run knock from Chadwick Walton was as exuberant as they get with the batsman mincing the opposition’s bowling unit as he blasted his way to a sensational eight 6s and three 4s.
Meanwhile we have a duo representing us from the opposition as well with his 42 seeing us pick out John Campbell along with Najibullah Zadran who has put on two steady performers with the bat till now.
JAM vs SLZ Dream11 All-Rounders
One of the most formidable batsmen to bowl to in the West Indian T20 cricketing circuit, St Lucia Zouks opener Rakheem Cornwall has displayed why he’s held in such regard. He blasted his way to 33 runs in the last clash, taking just 12 balls to get them in as he opened his arms with ease to thrive in the powerplay overs.
Elsewhere we have picked out Andre Russell from the opposing side.
JAM vs SLZ Dream11 Bowling Order
With the rules of Dream 11 changing with the bowlers being rewarded 25 points per wicket now, we have decided to indulge in the services of four bowlers for today’s encounter. Wicket will tumble down in this encounter, especially with the new ball or in the death overs with the pacers being names to divulge in.
This narrative sees us opt for an entire trivalent from Jamaica Tallawahs with us getting in Shamar Springer, Steven Jacobs and Christopher Lamont while from the opposition we have selected Obed McCoy for this match.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Walton has been selected as our side’s captain for this impending encounter while Gayle is the vice-captain.
