Jamaica lost their recent match in a close contest against the Saint Lucia Kings. It was their first loss of the season. There are some big positives for the Tallawahs to take from this loss. Raymon Reifer scoring 62 off 41 balls at number 5 after the top 4 batsmen failed to make any significant contributions is a confidence booster for Jamaica Tallawahs.
In addition, the bowlers stepped up to the occasion and bagged 8 wickets while defending a low total of 163 runs. Trinbago Knight Riders, on the other hand, are in complete shambles after their recent loss against Barbados Royals.
The TKR batting had already started showing signs of trouble after their win in their opening game of the season. In a rain-affected run chase, Trinbago Knight Riders finished with 51 for 7 in 8 overs with only Colin Munro having scored in double digits.
Rovman Powell must be pleased with his team’s performances so far. There have been multiple match winners for the team. And even in their recent loss, there were players stepping up and raising their hands when the team required someone to take responsibility.
Mohammad Amir has made a big impact with the ball and if he continues his form, the opposition will find it difficult to put on a decent score on the board. While most teams bowling first will have an advantage at this ground, Jamaica Tallawahs can be dangerous even if they bat first and defend a total against Trinbago.
The likes of Imad Wasim, Chris Green, and Raymon Reifer are all impact bowlers in the JT setup. While the bowling has been consistent so far, the batting order has seen some new stepping up every game.
In their opening game of the season, it was Brandon King and Kennar Lewis, while it was skipper Powell and Chris Green in the next game. Raymon Reifer’s half-century in the last match was also quite inspiring but now is the time for Rovman Powell to introspect the batting failures.
They cannot ride their luck for too long and when they take on a strong bowling attack like TKR, without consistency in the batting order, Jamaica Tallawahs can be vulnerable.

A team with some of the biggest T20 players in the world is expected to deliver much better performances than what the Knight Riders have done so far. The batting troubles that started last year have taken a bad turn this season with the recent match being the lowest of lows for the 4-time CPL title winners.
A middle-order that features Colin Munro at 3, Nicholas Pooran at 4, and Tim Seifert at number 5 is as good as it gets. It is a world-class batting lineup that any captain would be pleased with. Add to this the hitting prowess of Pollard and Russell at 6 and 7, and you have got one of the best batting lineups in the world.
Trinabgo Knight Riders need a quick turnaround in their fortunes. A changed attitude towards their game can help this side. An all-out aggressive approach may not work well on slow pitches that don’t offer great bounce and carry.
The likes of Munro and Webster need to play more cautiously trying to build a partnership while Narine and Pooran can take more risks in hitting the long ball. A couple of changes Knight Riders made to their bowling attack for the last game did not work and we reckon they should stick with their previous bowling setup.

The weather is expected to be partly cloudy with a high of 32 degrees Celsius in Gros Islet on the match day. The pitch offers fair competition between bat and ball with the bowlers having a slight advantage.
The venue has hosted 18 T20 international matches where the average 1st innings score was 160 runs. While batting second is preferred at this venue, if the team batting first crosses 175 or 180 runs, the chances of chasing such a total are very less.
The teams batting second have won slightly more T20 domestic matches whereas, in the international T20s, teams batting first and second have won the same number of matches. In this fixture, choosing to bowl first will be favourable for both sides. Tallawahs are slightly better positioned to defend a total, but Knight Riders will stand no chance of winning if they bat first.
Jamaica Tallawahs are coming in with confidence as even in their loss, they had a few heroes who stepped up and gave their team a fighting chance to win the match. Knight Riders, who are struggling big time, need at least a few of their key players to find form and at the moment, no Knight Rider is in good touch.
There are a few vulnerabilities in the JT setup and if Knight Riders play their cards right, they can get on top of the game and stage a comeback. However, considering the current form and players’ consistencies, Jamaica Tallawahs will start as favourites to win.
