Prediction Jamaica Tallawahs vs St Kitts and Nevis Patriots
Jamaica Tallawahs will win this game
The battle for Caribbean Premier League 2018 has entered its last stage and it is only three games to go for us to know the winner of this season. As we brace ourselves for the Eliminator game between Jamaica Tallawahs and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots both the teams would know that performances over the last month matter little for the sides as they would have to bring their best game to secure a place in the next qualifier game. In the league stage the two sides were even-steven winning one game each. With power hitters in both the teams the crowd at Providence Stadium, Guyana would surely expect to see a great encounter in this game.
The Andre Russell led side has had a good campaign so far and would look forward to repeating their performance from the 2016 season when they won the title crown. They made a great start to the campaign winning their first three games which was followed by three straight losses which raised doubts about the team’s temperament. But things fell into place in the last stage of the tournament where they lost only to St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in a rain affected game. But other than that the team has been on a roll for the last few games and they would look to capitalize on the form they find themselves in at the moment.
In terms of batting form Glenn Phillips has impressed all throughout the season and Russell would count on him for a great start. Rovman Powell is another player who has impressed this season and along with Johnson Charles. The middle order looks strong with Ross Taylor, David Miller and Russell himself. They have the perfect mix of orthodox players and hitters in the line-up. In their bowling department Russell has been among the top wicket takers this season along with Oshane Thomas. Ish Sodhi who has come into replace Adam Zampa would have to play an important role in the middle overs. All in all the side looks good to take on the Patriots.
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots
Having Chris Gayle in the side is enough to demoralize any opposition in this format. But the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots would know that it would take much more than this individual form to win this contest. They have looked on and off throughout the league stages winning a game and then going into lose the next one. However the team showed its character when the going got tough and won the last two games which will give them lot of confidence going into this qualifier. The skipper would count on his men to repeat the same kind of performance against Tallawahs when they came out strongly to win their game against the opponents in the league stage.
For St Kitts and Nevis Patriots the batting without any doubt rests on the shoulders of skipper Chris Gayle who has been their top scorer this season. Wicketkeeper Devon Thomas has had a good season so and apart from them the team would look up to Rassie van der Dussen, Anton Devcich to do well with the bat. Fabian Allen’s batting lower down the order in the last game would give lot of confidence to his captain. In the bowling department Sheldon Cottrell and Carlos Brathwaite have been the go to bowlers for the skipper and with Ben Cutting doing well Gayle would hope that these bowlers are able to deliver great performance and see the side through in the game against Jamaica Tallawahs
It will surely be a close contest between the two sides with little to choose between them. But we would still count Jamaica Tallawahs as favourites to win this game.
