Jamaica Tallawahs (JAM) will take on Saint Lucia Kings (SLK) at Warner Park, St. Kitts in the third match of the Caribbean Premier League 2021 on Friday, August 27.
JAM vs SLK Dream11 prediction
Jamaica Tallawahs is an exciting team, but the Saint Lucia Kings have more individual quality in their squad. The latter are currently sweating over the fitness of their captain, Faf du Plessis, but the South African is expected to be fit for the match.
The two teams have played some interesting matches in the past, but it is SLK who have got the better of JAM in the recent outings. The team has won three of their last five matches against Jamaica Tallawahs and lost twice.
Although it is a rather difficult prediction to make, we expect Saint Lucia Kings to emerge victorious on Friday.
JAM vs SLK Dream11 team tips for Caribbean Premier League 2021
Top tip: Best batsman
It goes without saying that Faf du Plessis will be an outright top batting choice if fit. The 37-year-old has been selected by a whopping 91.4 percent of fantasy users and it wouldn’t hurt choosing the most obvious choice.
Top tip: Best bowler
Selected by 85 percent of fantasy managers, SLK’s Wahab Riaz is the safest bowling option to have for this match. The Pakistan quick has been in decent form of late and one can expect a satisfactory return from him.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Andre Russell’s form may have dwindled in recent times, but the towering West Indian is still the best option in the all-round position. The 33-year-old all-rounder has scored 206 runs in his last eight matches for Jamaica Tallawahs and he has done so at a strike rate of almost 150.
Andre Fletcher of SLK can be entrusted with wicket-keeping duties. The top-order batsman is known for his hard-hitting prowess which is why he’s been selected by a whopping 95.7 percent of fantasy users.
