Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad, September 07th at 03:30 AM IST
It was a terrific start for the three-time and reigning champions Trinbago Knight Riders who defeated St Kitts and Nevis Patriots by 11 runs in the CPL 2019 opener by 11 runs.
Their next assignment comes in the form of the mighty Jamaica Tallawahs who are already boosted by the return of their very own son Chris Gayle. Not only the ‘Universe Boss’ is back, but he will be leading the troops as well.
As far as the Knight Riders are concerned, a win in the opening game has definitely given them a lot of confidence which they will carry forward in this game as well.

Fantasy picks from Jamaica Tallawahs-
The ‘Universe Boss’ Chris Gayle is the stalwart of Jamaica Tallawahs batting line-up. He has an impeccable record in T20 cricket with as many as 21 centuries and 80 half-centuries.
Andre Russell just lit-up the IPL 2019 with his breathtaking hitting prowess. He scored more than 300 runs in the IPL and was formidable with the ball as well. His recent exploits came in the Global T20 Blast where he was taking the bowlers to the cleaners. His last two innings saw him scoring 46* and 43.
Glenn Phillips was one of the main reasons for Jamaica Tallawahs success in the last season. He has scored 1612 runs in 58 T20Is with a strike rate of 132.56.
Rovman Powell along with Andre Russell is one of the fierce all-round pair. From 51 T20 innings, he has mustered 1041 runs with a strike rate of 133.12.
Fantasy picks from Trinbago Knight Riders-
All-rounder Jimmy Neesham had a terrific start to the season as he scored a crucial 33 with the bat and then scalped 3 wickets for 18 runs from just 2.4 overs.
Skipper Kieron Pollard continued his good T20I form with a much-neede 47 in the last game.
Sunil Narine’s exploits were missed in the last game but was economical with the ball. He is definitely an unmissable pick here.
Mohammad Hassnain bowled with heart in the last game and took 3 crucial wickets. Once again he will be an integral part of the eleven.
Lendl Simmons will be mulling to miss an opportunity in the last game. He will be eyeing a big knock here.
