JAM vs SLZ Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips & Playing XI Updates for Today's CPL Match - September 13th, 2019
Star-studded Jamaica Tallawahs was on the wrong side of a high-scoring game which saw them lose to St Kitts and Nevis Patriots after scoring 241. With no wins from two games, Jamaica Tallawahs play their first home against the St Lucia Zouks on Friday.
Both teams have lost all of their games so far in CPL 2019 inspite of performing well on either occasion. While Chris Gayle and his men are the favourites for this game, one cannot count out the Darren Sammy-led side with his track record as captain being exemplary.
With both teams looking for a win to inch closer to the top four, here are a few tips to help you pick your Dream11 team.
JAM vs SLZ Squads to choose from
Andre Russell, Chris Gayle, Chadwick Walton, Rovman Powell (C), Zahir Khan, Oshane Thomas, Glenn Phillips, George Worker, Amad Butt, Chris Lamont, Steven Jacobs, Imran Khan, Xavier Marshall, Shamar Springer, Ramaal Lewis, Derval Green and Javelle Glenn
St Lucia Zouks
Darren Sammy (C), John Campbell, Obed McCoy, Kesrick Williams, Andre Fletcher, Thisara Perera, Niroshan Dickwella, Rakheem Cornwall, Roland Cato, Jeavor Royal, Andre McCarthy, Beuran Hendricks, Chris Barnwell, Keddy Lesporis, Nitish Kumar, Fawad Ahmed, Colin de Grandhomme, Cameron Delport, Najibullah Zadran, Krishmar Santokie and Lasith Malinga.
JAM vs SLZ Playing XI Updates
Zahir Khan could be drafted in for Steven Jacobs, who hasn't done much in the bowling unit. Apart from the once change, JT should remain the same with a very strong batting unit in their midst. With Russell and Worker providing the impetus in the death overs, they are served well with Rovman Powell who is quite capable of clearing the boundary.
All eyes will be upon Chris Gayle, who scored his 4th CPL hundred against SNP albeit in a losing cause.
Possible XI: Gayle, Phillips (WK), Walton, Powell(C), Russell, Worker, Springer, Zahir, Lamont, Taylor and Thomas.
St Lucia Zouks
Colin de Grandhomme is another overseas star who could be drafted in for Andre McCarthy with the Kiwi in decent form of late. Thisara Perera and Grandhomme could prove to be useful duo towards the end of the innings while the onus lies on Andre Fletcher and John Campbell to provide a platform for them to tee off.
Their bowling unit is well settled with Obed McCoy and Kesrick Williams doing well while much is expected from Aussie, Fawad Ahmed, who proved to be quite expensive against TKR.
Possible XI: Campbell, Fletcher(WK), Cornwall, de Grandhomme, Perera, Sammy, Zadran, McCoy, Fawad, Kesrick and Hodge

Sabina Park, Kingston
JAM vs SLZ Pitch Report
Sabina Park has generally produced high-scoring wickets and should be no different on Friday. The pacers should get some help from the surface although scores of 170 and more are a common sight here. The team winning the toss should prefer chasing here with this being an evening fixture.
JAM vs SLZ Fantasy Tips and Suggestions
Wicket-keeper: Andre Fletcher and Glenn Phillips are the designated keepers for this game with both of them due for a big score at the top of the order. Phillips was one of their best in CPL 2018 but hasn't replicated his form this season. He should do well along with Fletcher on a good wicket to bat.
Batsmen: Chris Gayle and Chadwick Walton went ballistic against SNP with their partnership guiding JT to a massive total. They should be expected to continue in the same vein of form in this game as well. Along with them, the likes of George Worker and John Campbell are also good options to complete the batting unit.
All-rounders: Andre Russell's all-round ability makes him a wonderful asset to any team, let alone a fantasy team. He is one heck of a player to have in the side. Rovman Powell bats in the top order and is capable of scoring big runs as well. He is another good option along with Rakheem Cornwall.
Bowlers: Oshane Thomas picked four wickets in a losing cause on Wednesday and would love to back it up with another such performance. While Thomas bags one spot, Fawad Ahmed is another good option with the former TKR spinner known for his ability to pick wickets. One of Shamar Springer or Obed McCoy should suffice in the fantasy team.
Captain: Chris Gayle and Andre Russell are the first choices for captaincy with their track record at their home ground being exemplary. Along with them, Andre Fletcher is another good option for captaincy if one were to pick an SLZ player.
