Cricket Free Tips | CPL 2021, Match 18: Trinbago Knight Riders vs Jamaica Tallawahs

Trinbago Knight Riders and the Jamaica Tallawahs will face off for the first time in CPL 2021. The 2020 CPL Champions, the Trinbago Knight Riders, are in the fifth position with four points from five games. With four points from four games, the Jamaica Tallawahs are in fourth place.

The Trinbago Knight Riders have struggled to maintain the consistency that helped them win the championship in 2020. They’ve had four days to recover from their Super Over loss in their previous game and will be ready to play.

In the 2021 tournament, the Jamaica Tallawahs have blown hot and cold, hitting 255-5 in their first game but failing to win consecutive games. In this encounter, we expect them to go all out against the Knight Riders.

 

Weather
Clouds will be present, with the possibility of rain during the game. Temperatures will range from 28~32°C.

 

Pitch
Wicket appears to be in good shape in this venue. Batting has not been as straightforward, with scores ranging from 150 to 170 being common. Because of the slowness of the surface, spinners have benefited. Fast bowlers who have mastered the usage of variations have had great success.
