Tournament: Caribbean Premier League
Match: Jamaica Tallawahs vs Trinbago Knight Riders
Venue: Sabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica
Time: September 14, 6:30 a.m. IST
This will be a battle between teams on two opposite ends in the points table. While Trinbago have won all three games they have played thus far, Jamaica are yet to register first points on the board, and are still winless after three outings. They will be ruing their chances after they failed to cross the line despite notching up 241 runs on the board against St. Kitts earlier in the edition.
Jamaica's hard-hitter Andre Russell is a doubt for the game after the ball struck the back of his head in the side's last game against St. Lucia Zouks and he had to be stretched off the field. Though scans cleared him of any serious injuries, the symptoms of a concussion usually show a day later, and Russell might miss the match. This will further put the Tallawahs on the back foot as they seek to take down a high-flying Knight Riders.
Weather Conditions: It will be a pleasant day at Jamaica, with the temperature in the mid-twenties. Though chances of rain stand at 4%, it is unlikely that the game will be affected.
Pitch Conditions: The pitch here, like all tracks in the CPL this year, is a good one to bat on, and a score of 170 can be easily chased down. Chasing, thus, is the preferred option by captains
