Jamaica Tallawahs may well consider this as their best chance to halt the agonising run of defeats in the Caribbean Premier League 2019 as they take on another struggling side St Kitts and Nevis Patriots.
The visitors at Sabina Park for the game tomorrow (Friday and the Caribbean time today) too have a dismal record this season even though they hold on to the third place behind Guyana Amazing Warriors and Trinbago Knight Riders. St Kitts & Nevis have played the maximum seven games for six points from three wins. The other four have ended in defeat.
Hosts Jamaica Tallawahs are reeling at the bottom of the table, having lost five of their six matches and lost their hopes for the season for all practical reasons. The team, led by Andre Russell, will be playing for pride more than anything else. The fans might turn out in hope of some fireworks from the mighty willow of Chris Gayle or heroics of the skipper. Dwayne Smith and Jerome Taylor are two other big names in the dugout. But that does not suffice to make the Tallawahs formidable contenders.
St Kitts will be relying on skipper Carlos Braithwaite, Sheldon Campbell and Mohd Hafeez. They wil be well aware of the fact that nothing short of a win will keep them in contention.
The match at Sabina Park, Jamaica, will start at 5.30 am India time. Catch all the action LIVE on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 1 HD from 2:30 am India time. The action will also be simulcast on Hotstar VIP.
