Game 27 of the Caribbean Premier League 2016 sees leaders Jamaica Tallawahs take on the St Lucia Zouks in the first of two meetings between the two sides in three days.

St Lucia had a poor start to the season, most of which they spent on the road, but their fortunes turned around as they headed home in the newly-renamed Darren Sammy International Stadium.

Led by their proud skipper, they scored wins over St Kitts & Nevis Patriots, Guyana Amazon Warriors and Barbados Tridents to leap up the table, although they slipped up in the final game against the Trinbago Knight Riders.

Now they have to take on a Jamaica side that was the first to guarantee themselves a spot in the play-offs and one that has had most time to get used to conditions in Florida, seeing as they were the only team that didn't play in St Lucia.

The last time they were in action was their final home game on 20th July, when they beat Barbados Tridents by 36 runs.

You only need to look at the scorecard of that match to see one of the reasons that Jamaica are the team to beat in this year's competition - Chris Gayle and Andre Russell managed just eight runs between them yet Jamaica still posted 195 for five.

However, they may miss Dale Steyn, who took four wickets that night, as he has returned to South Africa, but their strength in depth has been a feature of their tournament so far.

It promises to be a fascinating match-up, as after finding that winning groove in front of their home fans, the Zouks proved they could live with anyone, thanks to fine performances from Sammy, Johnson Charles and Shane Watson.

Charles is now third in the tournament's run-scoring charts so his will be a key wicket if Jamaica want to put the Zouks under pressure, although they will feel that even if he and a couple of others do depart early, they have the firepower to still post a big score.

it could just be the sort of game that is turned by one big over for either side or one moment of magic in the field.
