Trinbago Knight Riders who are on top in the points table will be competing against the fourth-placed Jamaica Tallawahs in the CPL 2020. The first semi-finals of the fun88 sponsored CPLT20 tournament will be played at iconic Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad. The other semi-finals will be played between Guyana Amazon Warriors and St Lucia Zouks.
According to the Cricdaddy match updates, on Sunday, the Trinbago Knight Riders completed their ‘perfect 10 wins’ in all their CPL 2020 matches, after they defeated the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots by nine wickets.
The Knight Riders have been a very dominating team in this whole season and their undefeated winning streak shows their power. In their last match against the St Kitts, Australian leg-spinner Fawad Ahmed claimed four wickets, and with an excellent bowling and fielding performance, the Knight Riders restricted St Kitts to 77 all out. Chasing the total with absolute ease, they finished the entire innings in just 12 overs, with the opener being not out on 41 off 33 balls.
On the other hand, the Jamaica Tallawahs lost to St Lucia Zouks in the final league of the match this season. Where the Trinbago Knight Riders have won all of their 10 matches, the Jamaica Tallawahs have only won three matches in total this season. The Tallawahs were only able to score 134 runs in 20 overs against St Lucia Zouks as their top batsmen Glenn Phillips, Andre Russell, and skipper Rovman Powell were all dismissed by Lucia’s power bowler Zahir Khan. According to the Cricdaddy cricket news, the Tallawahs beat the Barbados Tridents team by just one point to qualify for the semi-finals.
The Trinbago Knight Riders team is definitely confident and would be hoping to go with the same energy and confidence in the semi-finals. The team has the star and great players like Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo who are experts and experience in such knockout games, which would be of great help for their Trinbago team.
Furthermore, the team has also got amazing bowlers like Fawad Ahmed and Pravin Tambe who are leading the bowling unit from the front. After all this, the Knight Riders cannot afford a bad day now at this stage of the tournament and have to continue their winning streak in further matches. Whereas the Jamaica Tallawahs team might be called lucky to make it into semis as they come off a losing game and just three wins this CPL season. Though the team is absolutely capable of pulling off a win, only if their key players stand-out and perform well.
Young players Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Sandeep Lamichhane are doing a great job from their end but experienced players Carlos Braithwaite, Rovman Powell, and Andre Russell need to step up their game in tomorrow’s semi-final match.
As per our CPL T20 Semi-final prediction, the Trinbago Knight Riders team has higher chances of winning the first semi-final against the Jamaica Tallawahs in the CPL 2020. Rest the tomorrow’s match will tell, who’s going to make it to the finals. For all the interesting updates from tomorrow’s semi-final match, follow Cricdaddy live cricket score and enjoy the game.
