JT vs BR Match Preview

The Jamaican side is being led by Brandon King and the team provided a top performance in terms of batting against St Lucia Kings. Just Amir Jungoo from Jamaica failed to hit a six from their top 7 batters. It is unlikely that there will be any changes to the Jamaican side for this match-up. The most important member of the Jamaican team is their skipper, Brandon King. It has been a good year for the Tallawah skipper and he will be keen to continue his good work in this match as well. 

The Aussie bowling all-rounder Chris Green bowled well for the Jamaican team against the St Lucia Kings. He also succeeded in picking up the key wicket of the top order batters Sean Williams and Johnson Charles. Another crucial member of the Jamaican team is Imad Wasim. This left-arm spinner can pick up vital wickets on any track. He can also get purchases from this track with some useful pace and bounce. The Jamaican team will be high on confidence after a top all-round performance in their first match-up.

Although the Barbados Royals team provided a disappointing performance in their first match defeat against St Lucia Kings, the Barbados outfit will likely maintain faith in the same playing eleven for this contest. The quick Obed McCoy might be rested later in the competition but he is likely to play this match. The tall southpaw Kyle Mayers is a top-order batter for Barbados Royals. He is an attacking batsman for the Royals. He might decide to attack the Jamaican bowling in this game.

Another significant all-rounder for Barbados is Nyeem Young. The 22-year-old is likely to occupy the number 8 position in the batting line-up as he did in the second game of the competition. He might get a promotion to a higher position in the batting order. He was the top run-getter for Barbados in their last game with a score of 48 runs with 4 sixes. A crucial bowler for Barbados is Jason Holder who bore the brunt of the Barbados bowling attack in the first game. He picked some important wickets in the game although it was not sufficient to win the game for his team.

Weather Report

The weather forecast for this match is that of humid conditions and some heavy showers on Sunday morning in Gros Islet. The temperatures during the match-up will be in their high 20s right throughout the game. 

Pitch Report

Both the first couple of games played at the venue of Daren Sammy International Cricket Stadium have been won by the teams batting first. So, you can expect the pitch to assist the bowlers later on in the day. All captains will be looking to bat first on this track if they win the toss. We have observed a lot of pace and bounce on the track for fast bowlers. You can also expect a turn for the spinner but the team that bats first will look to score at least 180 runs as a fighting total.

The Jamaica Tallawahs are more likely to win this contest. They are the defending champions and have made a good start to the new season by winning the first match. They are still on an unbeaten run and are strong favorites to win this match-up. Developing a winning momentum is necessary for the T20 competition. We will bet with Jamaica Tallawahs to win this encounter.
