CPL 2020 Match 28, Cricdaddy Match Live Updates: With the semi-finalists already decided, the rest of the league matches of CPL 2020 Tournament sponsored by Fun88, are not much of a delight to enjoy. The teams will now be playing relaxed and saving their energies for the knockout matches. The Tallawahs have qualified for the playoffs and they must be willing to gain some momentum by winning the rest of the games, before entering the semi-finals stage. The Tridents are second from the bottom of the table and they must be willing to finish their tournament in style, as they have nothing much to lose. This game can be a fun to watch for the fans.
Date: 05 September (Saturday)
Venue: Brian Lara Cricket Academy, Trinidad and Tobago
Pitch Condition: As we have witnessed in the initial games, the pitch is slow and benefits the chasing team. Pacers will get the swing and bounce in the first innings and the pitch will tend to perform slower in the second innings. A total of around 170 might be safe, and will leave something for the bowlers to defend. Considering the pitch conditions, the team winning the toss must choose to field first and restrict the opponents to as less score as they could.
Jamaica Tallawahs: Tallawahs are sitting in the middle of the points table with 3 wins and 4 loss. With one match washed off by rain, they have 7 points yet so far. The team looks strong on paper but doesn’t appear to be a tough competitor on the ground. With Andre Rusell sitting out in some matches, the Tallawahs lost their momentum, but that’s not the only case. In the last game, Rusell entered the ground when the game was almost out of hand. With Glenn Phillips and Nkrumah Bonner contributing with the bat, the batting brigade looks fairly strong.
The bowling performance of the team is pretty satisfactory yet. Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Sandeep Lamichhane have turned out to be the best bowling pair in the tournament so far. With Carlos Braithwaite and Andre Rusell, they have enough variation to trouble any batting lineup.
Expected Playing XI: Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, GD Phillips, Rovman Powell, NE Bonner, Jermaine Blackwood, Asif Ali, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Sandeep Lamichhane, Veerasammy Permaul & FH Edwards.
Barbados Tridents: The defending champions have already been knocked out of the tournament already and they must be expecting to win some last games to avoid sitting at the bottom of the table. The situations were pretty similar for the Tridents last year when they bounced back and won the championship, but that is not the chance this time. Looking at the team combination, the batting lineup is the issue that is dragging them down. Skipper Jason Holder looks more proactive while leading the West Indies team.
Only the bowling performances have been pretty good for the Tridents. Rashid Khan, Mitchell Santner and Hayden Walsh have given some fine individual performances but the team couldn’t cash those. Going by their recent performances, it would take a miracle for them to register a win against the Tallawahs.
Expected Playing XI: Jason Holder, Johnson Charles, Shamarh Brooks, Justin Greaves, Kyle Mayers, Mitchell Santner, Rashid Khan, Raymon Reifer, Hayden Walsh Jr, Ashley Nurse & Nyeem Young.
