CPL 2019 - Trinbago Knight Riders vs Jamaica Tallawahs: Pollard led TKR hope to carry momentum into second game

Match details

Series/tournament name: Caribbean Premier League 2019

Venue: Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain

Date: 6 September, 2019

Time: 5:30 a.m. IST

Preview: 

After winning their opening game at the same venue a day back, defending champions, Trinbago Knight Riders will look to stretch their winning start to the season. Jamaica Tallawahs, though, have a potent line-up with a good blend of power hitters and diligent ball workers. Much of the contest could be decided by how TKR restrict Jamaica's big hitters - Glenn Phillips, Andre Russell and Chris Gayle. On the other hand, Jamaica's task will be to keep the middle order of Seekkuge Prasanna, Kieron Pollard and Jimmy Neesham silent.

Weather report: 

The weather is clear with temperatures around 33°C through the day.  

Pitch report:

The pitch is expected to be slightly two paced. Maximising the powerplay would be top priority for both teams.

Injuries and replacements: 

Dwayne Bravo out. 

Probable Playing XI:

Jamaica Tallawahs:

The explosive power of Chris Gayle at the top and the combined middle-order explosiveness of George Worker and Glenn Phillips makes Jamaica a potent threat this season. One of Worker or Walton could open the innings. Russell could be in for a promotion.

Chris Gayle, Chadwick Walton, George Worker, Glenn Phillips (wk), Kennar Lewis, Andre Russell (C), Rovman Powell, Imran Khan, Oshane Thomas, Shamar Springer, Christopher Lamont

Trinbago Knight Riders

With Dwayne Bravo unavailable, Pollard will continue to lead the side. Sunil Narine
