Skipper Kieron Pollard top scored with 47 runs off 32 balls. Mohammed Hasnain, Khary Pierre, and Jimmy Neesham stood up to the task of defending the target with 8 wickets between them.

Jimmy Neesham – Neesham produced a good all-round show in the last match scoring crucial 33 runs with the bat and then taking 3 wickets with the ball. He was adjudged Man of the Match for his all-round performance.

Jamaica Tallawahs are one of the most consistent teams in CPL with two victorious campaigns in the year 2013 & 2016. They never missed to enter play-offs in all the six seasons so far. Their Skipper Chris Gayle has some mind blowing records in T20 circuit such as most runs, most centuries, highest individual score, most CPL runs, most sixes, etc and the list goes on. Rovman Powell and Glenn Philips did the bulk of scoring in the last season and are looking to repeat their performance this year too. Destructive all-rounder Andre Russell is expected to set the stage on fire after his impressive showing in various T20 leagues. Oshane Thomas and Jerome Taylor will the lead pace attack and look to trouble the opposition batsmen early in the match. They lack in spin bowling department with the absence of proven performers.
Chris Gayle – Gayle is one of the most consistent performers in the T20 history. He is the leading run-scorer in CPL with a tally of 2111 runs so far. He will look to add more runs to this tally and his team to win in this season.
Oshane Thomas – Oshane Thomas has grown in stature from the last season playing international cricket and IPL T20 matches. He will look to bring all his experience into use here in this season.

Port is Spain helped pace bowlers with good pace and carry and the batsmen failed to put big runs on board. The average score in this pitch will be around 160 runs. The weather looks bright and sunny and we can expect a full match with no interruptions.
Teams batting first have won 4 out of the 5 matches played here last season and the last match was won by team defending a small target of just 152 runs only.
Both the teams Knight Riders and Tallawahs have a lot of big hitters who are capable of winning the match on their own with the likes of Gayle, Pollard, Russell, and Neesham. But Knight Riders have a slight advantage due to inexperienced bowling attack of Tallawahs with no big names in spin department especially.
