Barbados Tridents vs Jamaica Tallawahs CPL 28th Match Prediction

5.09.2020, 23:45 IST
Brian Lara Stadium (Tarouba)
After three consecutive scores of 92 or less, the Barbados Tridents are arguably a bigger mess right now than even last place Patriots. It’s hard to believe that this team defeated a seemingly invincible Guyana to lift the trophy last year. With a strong slew of talent, they had all the ingredients to gun for a solid title defense, but something just fell apart and never quite got fixed - as demonstrated by their recent performances. Robbed of their last chance to reach the second round, they now have to play their final match of the tournament with the hopes of saving some face. Their opponents are the slightly better Jamaica Tallawahs, who, despite putting up better performances, are just about squeaking into the playoffs themselves. That being said, they are miles ahead of the Tridents at the moment given the latter’s awful form. Before these teams carry out their formalities on the field, let’s take a look at their respective sides.

Barbados Tridents Preview & Form

Had it not been for professionalism and contract reasons, the players of Barbados Tridents would most likely not even have taken part in this match. Such is the condition of their morale that they don’t even seem like they’re playing their favourite game. Since their ridiculous loss to the Zouks, they have looked the exact same dilapidated street-level team. The only way this will be anything of a contest is if they inexplicably decide to actually play cricket, because what they’ve been doing can’t be called that. 

Jamaica Tallawahs Preview & Form

Jamaica Tallawahs have been the definition of subpar this season, but that still puts them above those who have been miserable. With only 3 wins and a no result, the Tallawahs have a small chance of making it to third if they win their next two matches. This one might turn out to be a walk in the park, but the next one against the Zouks might be a thriller if TKR beats the Zouks in the meantime. They would have had a better chance, but their last match, which was against the last-place Patriots, was washed out. 

Match Prediction

Honestly, writing this for Barbados feels like a gamble in itself. Nevertheless, ‘expect’ Johnson Charles and Kyle Mayers to score runs, while Rashid Khan and Raymon Reifer pick up wickets.

With Barbados looking almost reluctant to play, the Jamaicans have their work cut out for them. Expect Glenn Phillips and Andre Russell to set or chase the target, while Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Sandeep Lamichhane help set or defend it.
