CPL Match 10 – Jamaica Tallawahs V Trinbago Knight Riders – Fantasy Preview

Undefeated Knight Riders takes on struggling Tallawahs


Jamaica Tallawahs

It was a combination of poorly-executed bowling and sloppy fielding that led to Jamaica’s third straight loss in this year’s CPL. It must be said that the loss of star all-rounder Andre Russell who was struck by a nasty blow to the head early in his innings left the Tallawahs a bit shaken. After skipper Chris Gayle and Chadwick Walton were dismissed early in the innings, opener Glenn Phillips and the excitement-machine that is Rovman Powell built a significant partnership. Powell scored a speedy-44 before being dismissed, while Phillips brought up his first fifty of the tournament. After ‘Dre Russ’ was stretchered off and sent to hospital for scans, the Tallawahs failed to end the innings strongly. Bowling has been a problem for the Tallawahs so far this season, and it continued to hinder their chances of winning as Rahkeem Cornwall and Andre Fletcher feasted on sixes at Kingston. Numerous dropped catches didn’t help their cause either, it was some of the most horrendous fielding you’re ever likely to see which would’ve had Jamaica’s coaching staff fuming. As a result of all this, debutante Derval Green and the Wayward-Jerome Taylor could be dropped for the Knight Riders clash after they were dispatched by the Zouks batsmen. Oshane Thomas managed to pick up three late wickets to give the home crowd something to cheer about in what was another disappointing loss.

Trinbago Knight Riders

Named player of the series in the 2018 Caribbean Premier League and helping his team hold up the trophy as last season’s champions, New Zealand’s Colin Munro will return to the Trinbago Knight Riders tomorrow night against the Tallawahs. The explosive left-hander blasted 567 runs in Trinbago colours last season, Munro is the type of guy who can leave a trail of destruction. Against a Jamaican bowling unit low on confidence, Munro’s return could be a memorable one. Shifting our focus to the teams performance so far in CPL19, Trinbago are looking the goods yet again. Experienced Windies-duo Denesh Ramdin and Kieron Pollard have been solid contributors with the bat in the tournament, there’s also been some individual brilliance among them as well from Webster, Narine and Simmons. Adding Munro to the picture, Trinbago now have a healthy balance with bat and ball. Black Caps all-rounder Jimmy Neesham has been an impact bowler for the Knight Riders in CPL19, 7 wickets in three games suggests he’s playing his role in the team to perfection. Deceptive-spinner Sunil Narine and Pakistani-teenager Mohammad Hasnain are also likely to bob up and take a bag of wickets sometime soon, they’ve also got Ali Khan as a speedy-alternative.
