Jamaica Tallawahs vs St Lucia Zouks Betting Tips 27/08/2021

Teams Status

Jamaica Tallawahs

This being the opening fixture of the season, it’s difficult to predict with accuracy how these teams would fare. What we do know is that the Tallawahs will be hoping to do better than last year when they were losing semi-finalists after finishing fourth in the group.

Jamaica’s main weapon will, of course, be their veteran allrounder and franchised cricket specialist Andre Russell.

The 2021 rendition of Jamaica are without Sandeep Lamichhane and Mujeeb ur Rahman. In their place, the team has signed Chris Green and Qais Ahmad.

Last year, Jamaica had the services of hard-hitting Pakistan batsman Asif Ali, who had an extremely underwhelming campaign. As a result, they have replaced him with compatriot Haider Ali, who is a like-for-like replacement, as in he can hit with devastating fashion but is also highly inconsistent.

Another useful signing is Pakistan’s Imad Wasim, who does a bit of everything.

St Lucia Zouks

While Trinbago Knight Riders were clearly the best team last season, St Lucia were the best of the rest as they made the final but lost. Overall, they won six of their 10 matches last year, and finished third in the group.

St Lucia underwent a leadership change during the offseason, with South Africa’s Faf du Plessis replacing Darren Sammy as the captain.

Adding more depth to St Lucia’s roster are Samit Patel and Tim David, overseas options that frequent T20 leagues. Patel has been everywhere, whereas David was a revelation in the Pakistan Super League 2021 a few months ago and is known to be a powerful hitter of the cricket ball.

Keemo Paul and Alzarri Joseph are among St Lucia’s local recruits. Their seam bowling should be enough to make up for the loss of New Zealand’s Scott Kuggeleijn, who was a wicket machine last season.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Jamaica Tallawahs to win @ 1.808

We’re not suggesting that Jamaica have a superb squad or that they already are among title contenders but they have recruited better when compared to St Lucia. If you compare the two squads, you would find the sum total of Jamaica’s roster higher than St Lucia’s. This is why we back the Rovman Powell-captained side to come out victorious here. The play can be found on MelBet.

Tip: Tim David to hit most sixes in the match @ 7.5

Singaporean-Australian cricketer Tim David is a force of nature as PSL 2021 fans would attest. He still is, however, somewhat of an unknown entity in leagues he has not played. This will be his first stint in the Caribbean Premier League, but don’t be surprised if he casually walks to the crease and turns any given match on its head. For starters, we tip him to hit the most sixes in this match. The play can be found on 22Bet.


Jamaica Tallawahs, as stated above, have a slightly better squad composition and boast a number of devastating batsmen. On that basis alone, our vote is in their favour.
