CPL 2020 Match 18, Cricdaddy Match Live Updates: The second match of the to be played on Saturday will be between the both poor performing teams. Both the teams are in the elimination zone with just one and two wins, respectively in the Cricdaddy CPL 2020 Tournament. Both the teams are struggling with their batting performances and the Tallawahs without Rusell would be even worse. When compared, the Tallahawas look a pretty better than the Patriots with some bowling in form.
Date: 29th August (Saturday)
Venue: Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad
Pitch Condition: The weather forecast for the day is quite good with very little chances of rain. The fans can expect a full match for the weekend. The pitch will continue to benefit spinners like the previous games. Looking at the batting sides of both teams, any score around 150 will be quite challenging to reach in the second innings.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots: The Patriots are struggling with their batting performances. In the last game, they lost four top order batsmen for 11 runs in the first three overs. The entire team collapses like a card castle. Chris Lynn, and Ben Dunk were supposed to be scoring big totals in the tournament but only Evin Lewis has played one match-winning innings for the team. They must try shuffling the top order to expect a different outcome in this game.
Because of the pitch conditions, the teams with quality frontline spinners are performing well in the tournament. Patriots lack such spinners. Jegassar and Imran Khan will be tested on the pitch tomorrow as restricting the JT batsmen might be a herculean task for them.
Expected Playing XI: Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis, Ben Dunk, Denesh Ramdin, Nicholas Kelly, Jahmar Hamilton, RR Emrit, Alzarri Joseph, S Tanvir, Jon-Russ Jaggesar, Imran Khan.
Jamaica Tallawahs: Not just the performance on ground, the Tallawahs are struggling with off-field issues as well. Another set back for them is losing Andre Russell at such stage of the CPL 2020 tournament. Now the responsibility of constructing big innings falls on Glenn Phillips and Chadwick Walton. Both are them are not in good touch. The only relief for the Tallahawas is that the Patriots have an even weaker batting order.
The bowlers are turning out to be very expensive for Tallahawas. Carlos Braithwaite will lead the bowling attack but his past performances are not impressive enough to be relaxed about. Fidel Edwards and Rovan Powell are also finding it difficult to stick to their line and length.
Expected Playing XI: GD Phillips, CAK Walton, Carlos Brathwaite, Asif Ali, NE Bonner, Rovman Powell, Jermaine Blackwood, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, FH Edwards, Sandeep Lamichhane, Veerasammy Permaul.
