T&Cs apply, 18+
The match number 7 in CPL is between St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and Jamaica Tallawahs. Both teams are yet to get on board as the Tallawahs lost their opening match and St Kitts have lost 2 matches they have contested so far in this 2019 CPL.
The Tallawahs opting to bowl against Trinbago Knight Riders made early inroads as Lamont removed Lendl Simmons for 11 runs. Narine came to the crease and the fireworks started. He smashed the inconsistent Tallawahs attack and made full use of the field restrictions, a 50-run stand in no time. Shamar Springer ended Narine’s entertaining knock, but the scoreboard read 85/2 in just 8 overs. Steven Jacobs took a sharp reflex catch off his own bowling to remove Neesham. Meanwhile, Tion Webster, the opener reached his maiden CPL fifty. Russel managed to remove Ramdin, but he has done his part and handed the death overs to a specialist. Pollard launched himself on Tallawahs and took them past 190, Webster carried his bat for a 49-ball 66. Chase did not start well as Narine resumed his powerplay services, cleaning up Phillips.
After hitting 3 sixes Universe Boss perished to Ali Khan and the power play ended reading 39/2. Walton finally broke the shackles and scored 17 off Neesahm’s over but fell in the next over to Narine. Russel announced his arrival in CPL with a huge six but 79 of 30 was difficult for Russel and Worker. Russel tried his best with a 23-ball 44 but the Tallawahs fell short by 22 runs. Having asked to bat St Kitts struggled against the spin combo of Green and Shadab as they ended the powerplay with 31/2, Lewis falling LBW to Shadab for a 15-ball 9. Hafeez accompanied Thomas and the pair put on a 50-run stand before Shadab returned to remove Hafeez. Keemo Paul removed captain Brathwaite for a duck and SNP were tottering at 91/4 in 15 overs.
Thomas hit 2 consecutive sixes off Shadab to bring up his fifty and fell to Green for a well-made 62. Some lower-order hitting from Fabian Allen and Alzarri Joseph took the score past 150 which was never going to be enough against the batting heavy Amazon Warriors. Allen built pressure one end but runs kept leaking at other ends as Hemraj and King scored 55 in the powerplay. Brathwaite removed Hemraj soon and Hetmyer came to the crease. He took control of the proceedings and kept the scoreboard ticking. Cottrell removed Brandon King, but the Warriors needed only 60 runs from 8 overs. Skipper Malik and Hetmyer took care off the chase and they did it comfortably handing SNP their second defeat in a row. Hetmyer finished with 70 off 47.

This team clearly struggle against quality spinners and it is very well exposed from their previous two outings. Hafeez, their best player against spin should convert his starts. The move to send Thomas up the order worked in their favor. After an impressive outing of 3/13 in the first match, Cottrell was taken for 35 in his second match. The skipper Brathwaite is completely short of confidence and his single-digit scores are not going to help his team’s cause.
Fabian Allen: With his scores of 30 off 14 and 33 of 19 are the only positive signs for SNP in this CPL. He would love to continue his finishing skills and will expect few more overs and trust from his captain as he just conceded 9 runs from 2 overs in the powerplay.
Evin Lewis: His struggles against spin is well documented. He managed to score 36 in his first outing and struggled for his 9 runs in the second match. With no established spin in Tallawahs attack, Lewis would love to find some touch to help his team.

Their top-order consumed lots of dot balls in their previous encounter against the spinners and they would like to rectify that. Their bowling line up struggled without a quality spinner, but they are a batting heavy team and with Gayle and Russel in their side, they would back themselves to set or chase targets around 200. Worker stayed till the end for his 33 balls 46 and gave good hand to Russel. Rovman Powell and Walton should add some impetus to their middle order.
Chris Gayle: The swashbuckling stroke-player is in fine form after scoring 277 in 5 innings in the recently completed Global T20 Canada tournament. He looked good for his 28 in his first match but would like to contribute a match-winning knock.
Andre Russel: The power package of Gayle and Russel will send nerves to any lineup. The world witnessed his amazing season in IPL, but he would love to repeat that in his home country. He already started that with his 23 balls 44.

Mostly sunny and dry weather with a passing shower is expected in the Basseterre, St Kitts. The pitch offers a good bat and ball contest, an average score of 170 and the highest score of 206 was achieved in the previous edition.
With both teams looking batting heavy they would chase targets rather than setting them.
In this contest, West Indies opening batting and bowling pairs square up against each other. It is Gayle vs Lewis and Cottrell vs Thomas. With both teams lacking quality spin attack expect a run feast. Tallawahs with their power-packed line up has a little edge going into this match.
