It is the 1st game of the Caribbean Premier League 2022. The Jamaica Tallawahs would be up against the defending champions St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. Both sides have seen changes in their teams since the last season and they would be eager for a good start. The Tallawahs shall look to put behind the upsets of the last few seasons and aim for a positive outcome in their first game.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have dominated the Jamaica Tallawahs over the last few years. They have won six out of the last seven games between the two teams and this would make the side confident heading into this contest. It’s a new season and past performances can’t always be a true indication. It remains to be seen if the Tallawahs can turn it around in this game.
Rovman Powell would have a huge challenge on his hand in this game. The new-look side is considerably weaker on the batting front compared to the last season. On the bowling front too, they will miss their star spinner Sandeep Lamichhane who is with his national team. Powell shall have to lead the side from the front and do well to defeat the defending champions.
Brandon King and Kennar Lewis have to set up a good opening wicket partnership at the top as they would face a good bowling attack. The middle order is experienced, and runs would be expected from Powell, Shamarh Brooks, and Fabian Allen in this game. Chris Green, Imad Wasim, and Raymon Reifer are good hitters of the ball, and they would look to score runs down the order.
Their bowlers must get the lines right as they bowl against one of the strongest batting line-ups in the tournament. Mohammad Amir and Nicholas Gordon must make use of the new ball. Imad Wasim is an experienced bowler, and he will need to do well with Chris Green in the middle overs. Fabian Allen and Shamar Springer add to the team’s bowling options.

Dwayne Bravo would go into this game full of confidence. They have one of the strongest batting line-ups in the tournament. The bowling attack is also experienced in this format of the game. Their record against Jamaica Tallawahs is inspiring and Bravo shall look to continue with that here.
Chris Gayle won’t play this year and Dewald Brevis has big boots to fill as he opens the batting with Evin Lewis. Bravo likes leading from the front, and he would look to add runs with Andre Fletcher and Joshua Da Silva in the middle order. Dominic Drakes and Dwaine Pretorius are clean hitters of the ball, and they would look to do the big hitting down the order.
On the bowling front, the side would expect a good start in this game from Jon-Russ Jaggesar and Sheldon Cottrell. Bravo is a seasoned campaigner, and he would look to keep the scoring rate under check in the middle overs. Izharulhaq Naveed would be interesting to watch as he makes his debut on the big stage. Pretorius and Rutherford add to the side’s bowling options in the game.

It would be clear skies over St Kitts on September 1, and we hope to see a good game here. The pitch allows batsmen to play their strokes. However, fast bowlers are likely to find these conditions tough for bowling as the wicket is slow. The side batting first would be happy to set a score above 170 runs.
Warner Park, St Kitts is a great venue for batsmen, and we have seen lots of runs being made here due to the flat nature of the surface. There is hardly any support for the fast bowlers on this track. Spinners who flight the ball do get the rewards, but it is overall a good venue to put up a big score on the board.
The surface here is known for being slow and most teams prefer to bowl first here. In this format of the game the side batting first always faces a challenge as run chases are easy. Hence, the side winning the toss would like to put the opposition to bat and aim to get them out for a low total.
Jamaica Tallawahs looks a much weaker side this year and lack batting firepower. Their bowlers also don’t inspire confidence and the side would be without its main spinner for this game. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots come here with a well-balanced side. They have good hitters of the ball, and this would make them favorites in this game.
