Probable best batter of the match

Glenn Phillips— Barbados Royals

Glenn Phillips has been an effective batter in the CPL over the years. Moreover, having already played quite a few seasons for the Tallawahs, he would be aware of their bowling attack. In the first two games for the Royals, the right-hander could only manage 29 runs at an average of 14.50. But keeping in mind his talent, he is expected to fire next time.

Probable best bowler of the match

Migael Pretorius — Jamaica Tallawahs

Migael Pretorius bowled beautifully in the game against the Kings. He started by conceding 14 runs in his first three balls. But once he got rid of Rahkeem Cornwall, there was no stopping him. In the end, he picked up four crucial wickets and gave away only 32 runs in four overs. The speedster will again be looking to make an impact with the ball in hand in the next game.

Today’s match prediction: Jamaica Tallawahs to win the match.
