CPL's Barbados Tridents will take on the underperforming Jamaica Tallawahs at the Kensington Oval on Tuesday, September 24, 2019. The CPL encounter will be a closely-watched match from a neutral perspective. Jamaica Tallawahs find themselves at the bottom of the CPL table despite having players such as Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, and Glenn Phillip in their squad. However, if the Jamaica-based franchise go on to win every single CPL match from this point, they still have an outside shot of qualifying for this year’s CPL playoffs.
On the other hand, Barbados Tridents are looking to secure a spot in the knockout stage. Tridents have four points from five games and will give their best for the two points up for grabs on Tuesday night. Here is the predicted starting lineup for the CPL showdown at Kensington Oval on Tuesday night. Expect a close encounter as both teams hope to bag maximum points.
The Tridents will hope to get the best possible result in tomorrow’s must-win encounter. They will field a strong starting XI that will most likely include Alex Hales, JP Duminy, and skipper Jason Holder. They will rely on Nepal spinner Sandeep Lamichhane to come through in the CPL encounter at Kensington Oval. Barbados will count on the likes of Leniko Boucher and Johnson Charles to chip in with some good runs at the top of the batting order.
Jamaica Tallawahs look like a strong team on paper. However, they have failed to live up to expectations in the seven matches played this season. Glenn Phillips is the lone performer for the Tallawahs in this year’s CPL. He has amassed 289 runs from seven games at an average of 41.28. He will be critical in the game along with big names such as Andre Russell and Chris Gayle. Tallawahs are in desperate need for a win on Tuesday and will go all-out in their attempt to bag maximum points at Kensington Oval.
Barbados Tridents predicted XI: Johnson Charles, Alex Hales, Justin Greaves, JP Duminy, Jonathan Carter, Jason Holder (C), Leniko Boucher (wk), Ashley Nurse, Raymon Reifer/Hayden Walsh, Josh Lalor, Sandeep Lamichhane.
Jamaica Tallawahs predicted XI: Chris Gayle, Glen Phillips (wk), Chadwick Walton (c), Andre Russell, George Worker, Dwayne Smith, Javelle Glen, Zahir Khan, Oshane Thomas, Jade Dernbach, Jerome Taylor.
