SNP vs JT Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Aug 23, 2023

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and Jamaica Tallawahs will contest the eighth match of the 2023 Caribbean Premier League. The Tallawahs are the reigning champions and currently occupy second position in the CPL standings. The Patriots won the title in 2021 and are in third position this season.

This should be an intriguing clash between two of the top teams in the tournament. Plenty of local and international talent will be showcased. Let's see what the cricket betting markets and odds have in store for this match.

SNP vs JT Team Previews

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots

The Patriots' 2023 CPL campaign has weathered a stuttering start. They have shared washouts with the Trinbago Knight Riders and St Lucia Kings - and will hope to finally get going against the Tallawahs.

St Kitts and Nevis have a formidable batting trio in captain Evin Lewis, opener Andre Fletcher and middle-order batter Sherfane Rutherford. Complemented by Indian batter Ambati Rayudu and South African all-rounders George Linde and Corbin Bosch, this Patriots order looks one of the strongest at the tournament.

Bowling-wise, it's probable they will give the new ball to seamers Blessing Muzarabani and Sheldon Cottrell. They opted for one spinner in Linde for the washout with the Knight Riders - and perhaps a second specialist slow bowler will play ahead of a seamer this time. One of Dominic Drakes or Oshane Thomas might have to make way.

Jamaica Tallawahs

The Tallawahs have not played a match since the tournament opener on 17 August 2023, but they can look to take their success from almost a week ago into this match against the Patriots. As three-time champions, Jamaica are chasing a record-equalling fourth title to be the most successful team in the history of the CPL alongside Trinbago.

Opener Brandon King will be key again. He was the leading run-scorer in last season's CPL and struck 81 against the Kings last week. King will need to adapt to fresh conditions in at Warner Park in Basseterre. He is well equipped and in form to do so, but will require solid support from fellow opener Kirk Mckenzie and the middle order.

Jamaica may well open the bowling with spinner Imad Wasim again. This is a reasonable ploy against opposition batters expecting pace on the ball early. This would also allow fellow spinner Chris Green to be used more after the powerplay. If seamer Mohammad Amir retains his place, he'll need to improve on last week's figures of zero for 47 in four overs.

SNP vs JT Toss Prediction

Three of the first four matches at Warner Park during last season's CPL were won by the team batting second. Captains generally like to bowl first in fresh conditions and chase later with the bat at this venue.

Eight of the 10 completed T20Is in Basseterre have been won by the team batting second as well. It will be somewhat of a surprise if this week's toss-winning captain does not opt to bowl first.

Pitch and Conditions

The last four CPL matches in Gros Islet were washed out. Significantly dryer weather is predicted in Basseterre, where a full fixture is anticipated.

Pitch conditions at Warner Park shouldn't be too dissimilar to those at the Daren Sammy International Cricket Stadium. It's well worth fielding two spinners here. A first-innings score of around 160 could be competitive.



SNP vs JT Betting Tips

The Tallawahs are best positioned to win. They already have a victory under the belt this season, while the Patriots have not completed a fixture yet. 

St Kitts and Nevis no longer have veteran all-rounder Dwayne Bravo, who was important to their previous two seasons. His absence is going to be difficult for them to navigate, especially with the ball.

Jamaica's batting order, even with the in-form King at the helm, isn't that imposing. But the balance of their XI, including a dynamic bowling department, make them a big threat for this fixture and the title overall.

Bet on the Tallawahs to win this fixture at odds of 1.89. The Patriots are priced as the underdogs at 2.00.

Bonus Cricket Bets

  1. Bet365


    Brandon King to be top Jamaica Tallawahs batter



King is a worthy Tallawahs captain. Importantly, the additional responsibility is not negatively affecting his primary role at the top of the order so far. King was the leading run-scorer in last year's CPL. He is an early candidate for the same status this season. Bet on him to be the top Tallawahs batter in this match at least.

  1. 10CRIC


    George Linde to be top St Kitts and Nevis Patriots bowler



Linde has international cricket experience with South Africa. He has played in the T20 Blast and, more recently, the Zim Afro T10. He is a good pick to be the Patriots' top bowler in this match, especially if they play one specialist spinner on a pitch that should suit the slow bowlers.

  1. 1xBet


    Chris Green to be player of the match



All-rounders are generally good choices for the player of the match award. They can make a big impact with the bat and ball. Green took two wickets in the Tallawahs' win over the Kings. He is available to contribute runs down the order.
