SKN vs JAM Dream11 Prediction: This season of the Caribbean Premier League has arrived to a point where it is becoming very critical for some of the teams to start collecting points before it’s too late. Especially for the teams involved in today’s encounter – St Kitts & Nevis Patriots and Jamaica Tallawahs. Both teams are lingering down at bottom of the points table and are fighting to stay alive in the competition. We will preview the match in our Dream11 fantasy cricket.

After registering their first win against the Tridents, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots again came back to their misery in the last match. Batting first against St Lucia Zouks, all of the Patriots top 5 were dismissed on single digits. Only Ben Dunk and Alzarri Joseph resisted for a while as Mohammad Nabi ran riot with a 5-wicket haul. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots posted 110 runs which were below par even on that slow surface. In reply, the Zouks openers broke the back of the chase very early before Imran Khan picked up 3 scalps for the good of his own confidence going forward.

For Jamaica Tallawahs, this has been a very up and down CPL so far as they have failed to back up a good performance with another. Jamaica Tallawahs suffered a big blow in the form of Andre Russell ruling out before the last match against Barbados Tridents. Bowling first, spinners Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Sandeep Lamichhane along with Fidel Edwards done well but others proved expansive as the Tridents put on 148 runs on the board. In reply, Jamaica Tallawahs could not recover from the early loss of Glenn Phillips in the first over. At one stage, they were reeling at 27-4 before Jermaine Blackwood and Nkrumah Bonner occupied the crease for a while. In the end, they remained short by a considerable margin of 36 runs.

Historically, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are marginally ahead of Jamaica Tallawahs in head-to-head records. The Patriots have won 6 matches while Jamaica Tallawahs were on the winning side for 5 occasions. After the early domination from Jamaica, St Kitts and Nevis have struck back strongly by winning 4 out of last 5 matches.  

Pitch and Conditions

This will be an afternoon match in Port of Spain and cloudy spells are expected today during that time. However, there are no showers predicted but you never know here. In terms of playing conditions, this will be the second consecutive match on the same pitch. Slower conditions are expected as we have seen so far and spinners will be the flavor of the day.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots Team News

  • St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are in some trouble at the moment and you can expect some changes to their playing XI today.
  • As bigger names as they are, Chris Lynn and Evin Lewis have managed to produce only one significant contribution between them. They seriously need to get going now as it is almost do-or-die situation for their team.
  • Denesh Ramdin and Ben Dunk have been good while the team management may look to replace Nick Kelly and Jahmar Hamilton for this match.
  • Sohail Tanvir will keep his place even after an expansive outing in the last match while Rayad Emrit has been excellent so far this season. Spinners Jon-Russ Jaggesar and Imran Khan will also continue in this match.

Jamaica Tallawahs Team News

  • Jamaica Tallawahs are still finding out their best combination in the absence of Andre Russell.
  • Glenn Phillips has now become a very important cog in Jamaican wheels and will be looking to take more responsibility at top of the order along with Chadwick Walton.
  • Jermaine Blackwood has looked impressive in couple of innings but captain Rovman Powell has not been contributing at all. The lower middle order of Jamaica has weakened considerably without Andre Russell.
  • Nkrumah Bonner will play along with Asif Ali and Carlos Brathwaite in lower order while Fidel Edwards will be the only specialist pace bowler in the playing XI. Spin trio of Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Sandeep Lamichhane and Veerasammy Permaul is likely to keep their places.

Captain Picks

For Small Leagues

  • Mujeeb Ur Rahman is relatively a straight forward choice for the captaincy position in the absence of Andre Russell. Conditions are perfectly suited for the spinners and Mujeeb Ur Rahman has taken the full advantage so far with wickets in all the matches.
  • Evin Lewis had an excellent innings just a match before and he is still the biggest match-winner for the Patriots. However, he needs to be a bit more consistent in terms of his returns. A best possible bet from the St Kitts and Nevis batting lineup.
  • Ben Dunk is another option from St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in this match against Jamaica Tallawahs. Again a left-hander who should work Jamaica spinners around easily compared to RHB. He also picked up a wicket in the last match.

For Grand Leagues

  • Glenn Phillips is probably the best option from Jamaica Tallawahs if you want to bet upon. He started this tournament on a brilliant note but he had a couple of poor outings of late. But still he can be an option for the grand leagues.
  • Pitches are such that even half decent days from the spinners will earn you a lot of points. Sandeep Lamichhane from Jamaica Tallawahs is a very good option in the grand leagues. He has been economical as well as picking up wickets till now.
  • Rayad Emrit has had a very good season as far as individual performances are concerned. His pace variations are turning out difficult to be identified and slowness of the pitches is only adding to his advantage. He is surely worth a go in the grand leagues.

Who will win SKN vs JAM Today Match Prediction?

As per our Dream11 predictions, Jamaica Tallawahs are slightly favourites in this battle between bottom two teams in the table. Although the unavailability of Andre Russell will definitely hurt the Tallawahs but their spin bowling department will be a tough proposition to tackle for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in today’s clash.
