Jamaica Tallawahs are the only team to open their points tally till date as they suffered defeats in all three matches they played thus far. The Tallawahs hoped that the home-leg matches will bring change to the fortunes after losing their first two matches. However, they ended up on the wrong side once against as the St Lucia Zouks chased down the target of 171 as the openers Rahkeem Cornwall (75) and Andre Fletcher (47*) added 111 in only 8.4 overs.
Their bowling has been miserable as they conceded at a rate of 9.5 and more in all the three matches. The Tallawahs even lost while defending 242, the 2nd biggest chase in the T20 history. Their 2nd home game will be against the defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders who won all three matches in this season. Jamaica franchise played their first game of the season against TKR only where they fell 22 runs short in a big chase.
The forecast weather for Friday is much better than on Thursday. The skies are to be clear throughout the day and high temperatures are expected. There are chances of the showers and drizzle in the afternoon but could disappear by the start of the match.
Once again, the team batting first finishes with 170 at the Kingston’s Sabina Park. However, the hosts were set towards 220 at halfway stage but the injury to Andre Russell and lack of depth cost them at least 30 runs. Despite the short straight boundaries, chasing a big target might not be easy at this venue. The team batting first will surely aim 200 as a winning score.
Average first innings score: 173 (CPL matches since 2017)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 4, Lost – 3
Andre Russell suffered a blow on the head and is likely to miss the game on Friday.
Darren Bravo is cleared to play after suffering recently concussion during the Test series against India.
Colin Munro will replace Lendl Simmons in TKR squad.
Probable Playing XIs:
Chris Gayle (C), Glenn Phillips (WK), Chadwick Walton, Rovman Powell, George Worker, Shamar Springer, Derval Green, Jerome Taylor, Ramaal Lewis, Zahir Khan, Oshane Thomas.
Bench – Christopher Lamont, Imran Khan, Xavier Marshall, Steven Jacobs, Javelle Glen, Andre Russell.
Trinbago Knight Riders:
Colin Munro, Tion Webster, Sunil Narine, Darren Bravo, Denesh Ramdin, Kieron Pollard (C), James Neesham, Seekkuge Prasanna, Khary Pierre, Ali Khan, Muhammad Hasnain.
Bench – Javon Searles, Anderson Phillip, Amir Jangoo, Mark Deyal, Akeal Hosein.
The conditions at the Sabina Park on Friday were similar to that of Auckland’s Eden Park. Both the venues have the short straight boundaries and pitches are pace-friendly. Glenn Phillips, who plays for Auckland, batted brilliantly in the familiar conditions. Colin Munro, another player from Auckland, could well do a good job with the bat. Rovman Powell will have added responsibility in the middle-order in the absence of Andre Russell.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Captain – Glenn Phillips, James Neesham, Chadwick Walton, Sunil Narine
Vice-Captain – Kieron Pollard, Colin Munro, Rovman Powell, Chris Gayle
James Neesham will be crucial as captain or vice-captain in the new points system of Dream11.
Suggested Playing XI No.1 for Fantasy Cricket:
Keeper – Glenn Phillips (C)
Batters – George Worker, Kieron Pollard, Chadwick Walton, Colin Munro (VC)
All-Rounders – Rovman Powell, Sunil Narine, James Neesham
Bowlers – Shamar Springer, Oshane Thomas, Muhammad Hasnain
Suggested Playing XI No.2 for Fantasy Cricket:
Keeper – Glenn Phillips, Denesh Ramdin
Batters – Kieron Pollard, Chris Gayle, George Worker, Darren Bravo
All-Rounders – Rovman Powell (VC), James Neesham (C)
Bowlers – Khary Pierre, Shamar Springer, Oshane Thomas
As expected, Chris Gayle failed against St Lucia Zouks who have some good pacers in their line-up. He is likely to record another failure. Muhammad Hasnain and Ali Khan have enough pace to rattle the veteran.
Disappointment could continue for the Jamaica Tallawahs with Trinbago Knight Riders bagging their 4th consecutive win.
