Match Preview

It is match 18 at the Caribbean Premier League 2020 where the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots would be up against the Jamaica Tallawahs. The Patriots are coming into this game after having lost against the St Lucia Zouks while the Tallawahs went down against Barbados Tridents in their last game. This game would be very important for both the sides as a loss here could make it extremely difficult for them to make it to the semi-finals. 

The St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have managed to win only one game so far and their batting line-up is going through an extremely poor run. The Tallawahs have been unable to grab the opportunities that have come their way and the top order has failed the side on more than one occasion. The stakes are high for both the teams and they will need to throw in all them have and win here. 

Teams Preview

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots Preview

Things look very bad for Rayad Emrit and his men at the moment. They have lost four out of their five games so far, and have nearly surrendered their chances of making it to the semi-finals. It was another disastrous show from the team in the last game against St Lucia Zouks that they lost by 6 wickets. Emrit will look forward to a better show from his side in the game. 

The inconsistency of their openers and main batsmen Chris Lynn and Evin Lewis has hurt the side dearly. For the side to win, these guys will need to get big scores.  Nick Kelly, Denesh Ramdis and Jahmar Hamilton also seem to be struggling in the middle and they will have to get going in the next game. Sohail Tanvir, Ben Dunk and Emrit have played their part well with the bat but the batting unit needs to fire in union for a win. 

Emrit has been the standout bowler for the team in this tournament so far and it was good to see Imran Khan bowling well in the last game. But the side will need a good start with the new ball from Jon-Russ Jaggesar and Sohail Tanvir. They have been letting off opponents too easily with the new ball which has cost them several games. 

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots Predicted Playing XI:

Rayad Emrit (c), Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Jahmar Hamilton, Ben Dunk, Sohail Tanvir, Nick Kelly, Imran Khan, Jon-Russ Jaggesar, Alzarri Joseph

Jamaica Tallawahs Preview

Rovman Powell’s side hasn’t quite lived up the expectations that its fans would have had on them at the start of the season. In the last game against the Barbados Tridents they lost by 36 runs, their third loss in five games. Batsmen especially the top order has struggled so far. Powell would know the importance of a win in this game in the context of the points table and look for better show from his players. 

Glenn Phillips and Chadwick Walton haven’t played well as a pair and they will need to improve upon their performance for the next game. Jermaine Blackwood has to up his scoring in the middle order and alongside Asif Ali and Powell needs to set the stage for deadly finishing duo. Andre Russell and Carlos Brathwaite haven’t got the perfect foundation to launch their onslaught which they will expect in this game. 

The new ball pair of Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Fidel Edwards has done well so far in the season and the side would need a good start from them. Sandeep Lamichhane has also bowled decently but beyond these three their bowling hasn’t gone according to the plans. Powell, Brathwaite and Veerasammy Permaul will have to check their line and length in this game.

Weather Conditions

After spells of rain over the last few days we expect the skies over Trinidad to be clear on August 29. The pitch hasn’t played like a typical T20 track and there has been lot for the bowlers to cheer about. We are seeing batsmen struggle against spinners due to the slowness in the track. Hence, any score in the range of 160 runs would be a fighting total for this surface. 

Venue Details

The Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad has seen several low scoring games this season. This isn’t surprising as bowlers have always enjoyed bowling on this surface especially spinners who enjoy the slowness of the track. Batsmen who are choosy with stroke making have been able to leverage the shorter boundaries this venue has.  

Toss: To Bowl

Six games have been played so far in the venue and on five occasions we have seen the side chasing the score emerge as the winners. There is assistance on the surface for the bowlers early in the game. Thus, both the captains shouldn’t have much of hesitation in their minds when it comes to bowling first on this surface. 

Winning Prediction

Both the teams aren’t coming into this game with the best of form and they have had their struggles so far in the tournament. The St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are stressed with the batting and this is a big worrying factor going into this game. As for the Jamaica Tallawahs they also have similar problems but their bowlers have rescued the sides on more than one occasion. It is expected to be an extremely close game but Tallawahs with better balance in their squad would start favorites in this game.
