Jamaica Tallawahs & St Lucia Kings will lock horns in the third match of the CPL 2021 at Warner Park in St Kitts on Friday.
The Tallawahs didn’t have an impressive tournament when it came to their performances in group stages during the previous edition of the CPL. In the previous season of the CPL, they could win just three out of ten matches. However, luckily they got qualified for the semi-finals which they eventually lost.
This time Jamaica Tallawahs will be very keen to show a better performance with both bat & the ball. With the big guns like Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Qais Ahmed & Chris Green in their line-up, the Tallawahs look stronger this time.
Coming to the St Lucia Kings, the team has undergone few changes from the previous edition. Their name has been renamed from Zouks to Kings. The kings had a spectacular season last year where they managed to finish as runners-up. This time also they would try to perform well & qualify for the finals of the CPL 2021.
With Darren Sammy stepping away, Faf Du Plessis will lead the team. The St Lucia Kings possess some extremely talented players like Andre Fletcher, Roston Chase, Tim David, Samit Patel, Wahab Riaz, Usman Qadir, Obed McCoy, and Alzarri Joseph in their line-up. Both the teams will be eager to win today’s clash to start their campaign of the CPL 2021 on a winning note.
