TRI vs JAM: The Knight Riders started off from where they left. The champions beat St. Kitts by 11 runs in the first game & they’ll look to persist with the positive start. Jimmy Neesham was the star in their first triumph. The dynamic left-hander scored 33 & was instrumental with the kookaburra in hand. Neesham finished with figures of 3/18 in 2.4 overs. The squad seems balanced to a nicety. Kieron Pollard walks in at 4-drop & that illustrated the depth in the squad.
Jamaica Tallawahs play their season’s opener against the defending champions. Chris Gayle’s international career might or might not be over but the big Jamaican is back playing for his home side. Gayle had won the tournament with the Tallawahs in 2013 & 2016. Can he lead them to yet another title? Andre Russell has now become a household name in T20 cricket. The big all-rounder has the ability to smack the ball into orbit, literally. With him in the squad, Jamaica will always be a team to reckon with. Russell comes into this tournament after a stellar performance in the Global T20 Canada finals(4/29, 46* off 20). The Tallawahs also have the likes of Rovman Powell & Oshane Thomas who are renowned T20 specialists.
The stage is set for a cracking T20 game but which team will hold their nerve? Will it be yet another clinical effort from the Knight Riders or will the Tallawahs come in all guns blazing?
