SKNP vs JT Prediction

Manish Khorgade

The bottom-ranked St Kitts and Nevis Patriots will clash with the fifth-ranked Jamaica Tallawahs as both the teams desperately need wins.

  • Overall, JT and SKNP had 11 encounters, out of which Tallawahs won 5 times while SKNP won just 6 games.
  • Tallawahs have one of the best spin attacks in Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Sandeep Lamichhane; together they keep any side in check, as they both have economy rates of under 4.5.
  • With 2 wins in 5 games, Tallawahs are at the fifth place while Patriots are at the bottom of the points table with just 1 win in 5 matches.

Our prediction is that Jamaica Tallawahs will defeat St Kitts and Nevis Patriots.

Match Preview

Half-way through CPL 2020, it’s time for Jamaica Tallawahs and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots to pull up the socks. Tallawahs won two games in their five matches, and they carry four points, same as Guyana Amazon Warriors and Barbados Tridents, but due to poor net run rate, they are placed at the fifth place. For St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, the situation is worse as they could manage just one win in five matches they played so far. The only game the Patriots won was against Barbados Tridents.

Lately, it appears that the toss is playing a huge role in the outcome of the games. Patriots were at the receiving end when they lost the match against Zouks on Thursday. Both sides have to be extra prepared for such factors, as they need to win more to rise in the points table.

Teams Preview

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots

One team that is hit badly due to the toss in CPL matches is St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. When they lost the match against St Lucia Zouks, even Zouks skipper Daren Sammy expressed that the toss should not determine the outcome of the game. Damp pitches made the conditions unplayable for the top and the middle-order batsmen. Top four Patriots batsmen got out in first three overs, two in the first against SLZ, as SKNP was asked to bat first after losing the toss. Ben Dunk’s cautious 33 off 37 balls and Alzarri Joseph’s 21 off 13 balls helped the side to cross 100 somehow. While defending the humble target of 110, Imran Khan took 3 wickets, Dunk grabbed 1, but they could not hold the opponents beyond 15th overs. Eventually, they had to accept their 4th defeat of the tournament. SKNP need to have better starts from their openers, especially Chris Lynn.

Evin Lewis is the leading batsman for SKNP with 161 runs in CPL 2020, while a few innings from Ben Dunk in this tournament have been very impressive. Rayad Emrit leads the bowling unit with his 7 wickets in this tournament so far.

Jamaica Tallawahs

It’s high time for Tallawahs to focus on what is working for them and what is not, with still five matches in hand before the play-offs. Chadwick Walton is not firing up, affecting the team’s batting. They must bring in Andre Russell in this game, especially after the heavy batting debacle against Barbados Tridents in their last game. Poor all-round performances of Powell and Carlos Brathwaite is also a great deal of concern.

The spin attack is definitely their forte. Mujeeb Ur Rahman is the leading wicket-taker of CPL 2020 with 12 wickets, while Lamichhane has taken 7 so far. The duo has noteworthy economy rates under 4.50. Fidel Edwards has been good too. Against Guyana Amazon Warriors, he shone with his 3 wickets for 30. Glenn Phillips had two ducks in the last three innings, but he remains the leading run-scorer for Tallawahs with 340 runs in the last 10 matches.

Venue Details

The venue for this match is Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad.  It is a classic ground with spectacular backdrops, most notably, the northern hills. It can accommodate 25000 spectators.

Toss Prediction

In CPL 2020, 6 games are played at this venue. Out of 6 matches, 5 times the team batting second has won, and just once the team batting first has won. The weather and the surface heavily favours the team batting second.

It is recommended to field first after winning the toss.

Winning Prediction

From the points table, Jamaica Tallawahs and St Kitts & Nevis Patriots appear as the worst performers, however, Tallawahs have the same points (4 points, NRR -0.361) as 3rd ranked Barbados Tridents (4 points NRR 0.091). With only 1 win, SKNP’s first half of CPL 2020 turned out to be the worst. Both the teams have their own problems with the bat, while Tallawahs seem to do slightly well in the bowling department. Head-to-head records of the last 5 games are inclined towards SKNP (4 wins over JT), but both the teams are neck and neck if we see the overall statistics (JT 5 wins, SKNP 6). Just going by the current tournament, and the bowlers from both the sides, the Tallawahs seem to have a slight edge over the Patriots.

Our prediction is that Jamaica Tallawahs will defeat St Kitts and Nevis Patriots.
