Trinbago Knight Riders v Jamaica Tallawahs – Match Preview

Trinbago head into this one on the back of an opening day victory over Guyana Amazon Warriors. They will now be looking to build on that here.

Jamaica, meanwhile, dished out defeat to the Zouks last time up and will be keen to put their own run together as they aim to put last season’s disappointing campaign behind them.

Where: Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad

When: Thursday 20th August

Start Time: 21:30 GMT (03:00 IST, next day)

Pitch conditions: The opening round of matches saw teams score around the 150 runs, with choosing the bat second becoming the trend. However, the pitch was noticeably slow in the first round of games and will likely stay that way with spinners coming to the fore.

Weather conditions: More rain is expected for this match but hopefully there is still a chance of some action. Temperatures are likely to stay around the 20 degree mark.

Trinbago Knight Riders v Jamaica Tallawahs – Team News

Trinbago could stick to the same side that overcame the Amazon Warriors last time out.

Pravin Tambe didn’t feature in the first match but could replace Fawad Ahmed if there is to be a change in the bowling attack

Knight Riders successfully chased down 145 to take the win thanks to a half-century from Sunil Narine. He is again likely to play a key role with both bat and ball.

They are captained by Kieron Pollard this year, which frees up Dwayne Bravo to focus on his all-round contribution.

New Zealand duo Colin Munro and Tim Siefert didn’t have a massive impact in the opener but will certainly be ready to fire for this.

Colin Munro New Zealand vs Bangladesh

The Tallawahs have Nepal leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane in their ranks this year but will again be looking at their home contingent to star. Andre Russell, Oshane Thomas and Carlos Brathwaite should all be involved. Jermaine Blackwood missed the first Tallawahs game but could return.

New Zealand batsman Glenn Phillips will also be keen to do more damage alongside them.

Trinbago Knight Riders v Jamaica Tallawahs – Betting Tips and Prediction

The value for the outright win could be with Jamaica Tallawahs here. They looked in decent form with the bat against St Lucia, including rapid scores from Glenn Phillips and Asif Ali.

They are certainly up against it but it could be a close affair, especially if they get to bt first here,

As well as the outright winner market, there are a host of other bets to be interested in.

 Phillips to Build on First Game Flurry

New Zealand youngster Glenn Phillips continued where he left off last season as he smashed a 29-ball 44 against the Zouks.

He was the fourth-highest run-scorer in the CPL 2019 and looks ready to add more runs to this year’s tally.

Phillips can be backed at 3.25 with LeoVegas to be the Tallawahs top batsman

Mujeeb to Trouble Trinbago

With spin likely to be a big weapon for both teams in this clash, a bet on young Afghan off-break bowler Nujeeb Ur Rahman could be the play.

He took two wickets against the Zouks and looked a real threat at times. Mujeeb can be backed at 3.75 with 10CRIC to be Jamaica’s top bowler.

Narine the Pick for Knight Riders

For the same reasons that Mujeeb can shine, so can Sunil Narine for Trinbago.

He was a star with both bat and ball in the opening day victory over Guyana. It would be no surprise to see him do well again.

Narine is priced at 4.0 with bet365 to be Tribago’s top bowler against the Tallawahs. It may also be worth looking at his man of the match price of 7.50 should he also do well with the bat in hand.
