Jamaica Tallawahs Team News & Playing 11
JT Team News
Jamaica Tallawahs seem to be free from all injury concerns at the moment. We expect them to go into this game with the same line-up that had outplayed St Kitts and Nevis Patriots a few days ago at Kingston.
JT Key Players
Jamaica Tallawahs have a power-packed batting line-up but the ones to watch out for will be Ross Taylor, Andre Russell and the opening pair of Kennar Lewis and Glenn Phillips. Russell had smacked an unbeaten 121 off just 49 balls in the reverse fixture and the team will be hoping for something similar from him. Lewis too had weighed in with a half-century and he recently struck a 24-ball 49 against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. Russell will be the key man again when it comes to bowling. He is one of the season's leading wicket-takers and had even notched up a hat-trick against Trinbago. Adam Zampa and Imad Wasim have been bowling well too and the Tallawahs will expect them to keep things tight in the middle overs.
JT Recent Form
Jamaica Tallawahs have looked in top form this season and they are currently topping the points table. They won their first three league fixtures in a row against Trinbago Knight Riders, St Lucia Stars and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots respectively. They have been very impressive with the bat so far with most of their batsmen firing for them.
Jamaica Tallawahs Predicted Playing 11
Glenn Phillips (wk), Kennar Lewis, Andre McCarthy, Rovman Powell, Ross Taylor, Andre Russell (c), Imad Wasim, Steven Jacobs, Krishmar Santokie, Adam Zampa, Oshane Thomas
Trinbago Knight Riders Team News & Playing 11
TKR Team News
Trinbago Knight Riders had made just the one change to their side for the last game against St Lucia Stars - they dropped Kevon Cooper in place of bowling allrounder Javon Searles who will probably be retained for this upcoming clash against Jamaica Tallawahs. The Knight Riders are unlikely to make a change in their line-up for this game.
TKR Key Players
Chris Lynn, Colin Munro and Brendon McCullum form the core of Trinbago's batting. Munro is leading the runs charts with 189 runs and he had top-scored with 61 in the earlier encounter against Jamaica Tallawahs. McCullum smashed a 27-ball 56 in that game and his knock of 68 in the last game against St Lucia Stars means that he has now hit two fifties this CPL. Darren Bravo is coming off an unbeaten 36-ball 94 and he too can be lethal given the kind of form he has got himself into. With the ball, the Knight Riders will be counting on the likes of Dwayne Bravo, Ali Khan and Fawad Ahmed to do the damage. Ali is currently the leading wicket-taker with seven wickets in four matches with Fawad not too far behind with five. The Tallawahs may look to be watchful against Bravo who has the knack of striking at crucial moments.
TKR Recent Form
Trinbago Knight Riders have won two and lost as many matches out of the four they have played this CPL and are currently placed second in the league standings with four points. After recording a massive 100-run win in the tournament opener against St Lucia Stars, the Knight Riders suffered back-to-back defeats against Jamaica Tallawahs and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots respectively. They, however, bounced back with a thrilling five-wicket win over St Lucia Stars in their last match.
Trinbago Knight Riders Predicted Playing 11
Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Colin Munro, Brendon McCullum, Darren Bravo, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Dwayne Bravo (c), Javon Searles, Ali Khan, Fawad Ahmed, Shannon Gabriel
