Caribbean Premier League 2020: Trinbago Knight Riders vs. Jamaica Tallawahs, Match no. 6

Sunil Narine, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron pollard (TKR) – Caribbean T20 veterans in action

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Both teams come here after an impressive win in their opening matches. Both teams have attacking batting line-up with a good mix of pacers and spinners in the bowling department. Knight Riders have a slight edge due to the presence of T20 veterans Narine, Pollard, and Bravo in their playing XI and we predict them to win this contest. 

Score Prediction: We expect a high score in this contest in the range of 170-180 runs with a lot of big-hitters across both the teams. The pitch will be slightly slow in nature which might help the slow bowlers considerably. 

Toss Prediction: Chasing is the best option in T20 matches as there is no safe target nowadays. Both teams won their opening matches chasing down the target.

Players to Bet on

JAMAICA TALLAWAHS

  1. Glenn Philips – Philips played a vital knock of 44 runs off 27 balls to set the platform for the team in the chase. He is becoming a CPL veteran with his impact knocks in the last two seasons.  
  2. Asif Ali – Asif Ali played a superb knock scoring 47 runs off 27 balls to lead his team to victory in the chase. He secured the Man of the Match award in his CPL debut last night. 
  3. Mujeeb Ur Rehman – Mujeeb ur Rehman had a good match with the ball with figures of 4-0-25-2. His two crucial wickets in the final overs helped their team to reduce the opponents 10-15 runs from their total. 

TRINBAGO KNIGHT RIDERS

  1. Sunil Narine – Sunil Narine was in sublime form last night scoring 50 runs off 29 balls and bowling figures of 4-0-19-2. Narine is looking very dangerous form which might be a big worry for the opposition teams.
  2. Colin Munro – Munro was at his destructive best for his brief 7 ball stay with 2 sixes and a boundary. He will look to play a long innings in this match to post a big score for his team. 
  3. Ali Khan – Ali Khan was the most impressive pace bowler for Knight Riders with bowling figures of 3-0-21-1 and he dismissed Brandon King in the very first over. He will look to take more wickets in the power play in this match too.
