The 2019 champion, Barbados Tridents, conclude their 2020 Caribbean Premier League season against one of the two teams they have beaten in their miserable title defence, Jamaica Tallawahs. The match takes place at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy on September 5 and the live action starts at 14:15 local time.
Jamaica were below par with the bat when these teams last met but they have seven points so far – three wins and a tropical thunderstorm-enforced no result last time out – to ensure they have improved on last year and return to the play-offs. Glenn Phillips’ batting has been a central tenet of their form.
Barbados, on the other hand, have not won since their victory against the Tallawahs due to some pathetic batting displays. They lost to high-flying Trinbago next up but have since scored 89/7 – chasing 93 to win – and then 92 and 89/9 in their last two games. Unsurprisingly, they find themselves well off the pace.
