We are into the 17th game of the Caribbean Premier League 2022, and we expect to see a close contest between Jamaica Tallawahs and defending champions St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. Both sides come here with losses. The Tallawahs had a poor day with the bat and went down against the Barbados Royals in their last game. The Patriots were blown away by the Saint Lucia Kings suffering their biggest loss of the season.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have defeated the Tallawahs only once in the last three seasons and this is likely to play on their minds. They have only one victory to celebrate this year and have looked in poor form. The Tallawahs have done well winning three out of the five games. They would be eager to strike form and we are likely to have a close contest in this game.
Things didn’t work for Rovman Powell’s team in the last game. They went down against the Barbados Royals by 8 wickets failing to score runs on a good batting surface. Powell shall look to strike form in this game and make good use of the opportunity as his opponents have struggled so far in the tournament.
Brandon King and Kennar Lewis form a strong opening pair and they would look to set up a big partnership in this game. In the middle order, Powell has been in good form, and he would look to add runs with Amir Jangoo and Raymon Reifer. The side bats deep and they would expect runs from the bats of Imad Wasim, Fabian Allen, and Chris Green down the order.
Mohammad Amir and Chris Green have done well with the new ball, and they would look to trouble the Patriots’ struggling batting line-up. Migael Pretorius and Allen leaked runs in the last game and better spells would be needed from them. Imad Wasim brings experience to the attack, and he must do well along with Joshua James

Dwayne Bravo is likely to return after missing the last game. His team has been at sea in most of the games they have played. It was a disastrous performance with the bat in their last game against the Saint Lucia Kings where the side went down by 61 runs. This is their last chance to stay in the hunt for a place in the Eliminator round and they must give their best in this game.
Andre Fletcher has been in good form, and he will look to set up a big opening wicket partnership with Evin Lewis in this game. Darren Bravo, Dewald Brevis, and Sherfane Rutherford haven’t done well, and the side would need runs from them in this must-win game. Dwayne Bravo, Duan Jansen, and Rashid Khan shall look to do the big hitting towards the end.
The bowling attack has also been in poor shape, and they would need early strikes from Sheldon Cottrell and Jansen to put pressure on their opponents. Rashid Khan’s show with the ball is a positive for the side and he must do well along with Akila Dananjaya in the middle overs. The side would also expect good spells from Dwayne Bravo and Dwaine Pretorius.

It will be partly cloudy over Trinidad on September 14 and there might be chances of showers during the game. The pitch has slowed down a bit over the years and batting would be a challenge on this surface. The side that bats first would be happy with a score in the range of 160 runs.
The Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad has seen low-scoring games in the past. Batsmen have to settle in to do well at this venue as runs don’t come easy. Fast bowlers get the ball to move and bounce. The record for spinners in T20 cricket has also been impressive at this venue in the past.
It is a difficult surface to score runs and defend it. Over the last few years, we haven’t seen many sides win games batting first. The weather would also be a factor as overcast conditions favor sides in run chases. Hence, we see the skippers not having much hesitation in bowling first on this surface.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have hit a mental roadblock. Apart from a couple of players, the rest of the team is battling poor form. They must do well with the bat to put up a challenge for the Jamaica Tallawahs in this game. The Tallawahs have a strong batting line-up and a bowling attack that has performed well. This will make them favorites in this game.
