Caribbean Premier League 2019, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots vs Jamaica Tallawahs: Even after losing both their matches, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots is standing at the 3rd position in the point table. Where the first match was quite close but they got defeated badly by 8 wickets in their 2nd match by Guyana Amazon Warrior.
With the return of Chris Gayle, the Tallawahs entered this season-high on confidence, but it took all of 20 overs to expose the frailties within the squad as they were handed a drubbing by Trinbago in their opening game,with their bowlers leaking over 190, which proved to be too steep a target to chase down.
Conditions are expected to be perfect for cricket, with the sun beating down for the most part during the day. Showers are predicted for later in the night, although they are unlikely to affect the game.
The surface at Basseterre last season was conducive to run-scoring, with the average run rate hovering around 9. Spinners found some success though, taking a majority of the wickets.
