The Caribbean Premier League has come to an end of trade with knockout stages. CPL left the qualifier format this year with a semi-final and final structure. It does not consider the group stage position in the points table to be significant, but we cannot minimize factors such as form and pace coming into the semi-finals. The Trinbago Knight Riders entered the semi-finals with an excellent 10 record, scoring any kind of performance over their opponents in the league stage. Jamaica Tallawah rode his luck and entered the semi-finals with only 3 wins courtesy of other teams. But they will rely on the fact that the best team despite the result on the first day.
Trinbago Knight Riders
Trinbago Knight Riders have been contributing to the team with every player in the group stage. Veteran Lendl Simmons and Sunil Narine can return to batting debut in this match. Darren Bravo, Tim Seifert, and Kieron Pollard will join to form a strong middle order capable of consistently posting massive scores.
Spinners Akeel Hussain, Khairi Pierre, Fawad Ahmed, Sikandar Raza and Praveen Tambe have bowled brilliantly at different stages of the game in the absence of main spinner Sunil Narine and the Knight spinners have a lot of problem in the spin department. Kiron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Ali Khan, Jayden Celes have so far supported the spinners in the bowling department.
Jamaica Talwasa’s top order has benefitted immensely with Glenn Phillips leading Blackwood. Their middle order has failed to bat well except Andre Russell, who has scored 3 fifties in 7 matches so far. In this match, Rowman Powell, Asif Ali and Carlos Brathwaite should stand with the bat.
The spin duo of Mujib ur Rehman and Sandeep Lamichme has been their strength this season, taking 27 wickets at an economy of just 5.5 RPO. Fidel Edwards has been in the wickets column in each of his matches. Veerasamy will bowl the remaining overs for the Permul and Brathwaite team.
Tarauba is expected to receive around 50% rainfall with cloudy weather. We expect rain to fall without any adverse effect on the outcome of the match.
Brian Lara Stadium is still conductive to spin but the balance is restored to a certain level. If the batsmen can sit on this pitch, then the batsmen will score effectively. The spinners still have the upper hand due to the dry nature of the pitch.
Batting first in big matches is the best option as the pressure to chase can surprise batsmen. But we expect both teams to face the threat of rain as it gives the chasing teams the upper hand with the revised target.
Trinbago Knight Riders vs Jamaica Tallawahs, Qualifier 1 T20-Today Match Prediction CPL 2020
The Trinbago Knight Riders have won all their matches, with each player contributing the team at different points. They do not depend on any player despite big names like Pollard, Bravo, and Naren, which is the trademark of a champion team. Jamaica Tallava has an inconsistent batting with very little contribution apart from openers and Russell. Talwaha’s bowling also lacks depth with the fifth and sixth bowling options. The Knight Riders are strong on paper in every aspect of the game and we predict them to win this match.
