The final play-offs game of CPL 2016 is here. Jamaica Tallawahs will take on Trinbago Knight Riders on August 5 at Warner Park in St Kitts. The winner will meet Guyana Amazon Warriors in the final.

On the other hand, the Jamaican team ‘qualified’ for this fixture after a defeat against Guyana Amazon Warriors.

In T-20 cricket anything can happen, especially when you have the likes of Chris Gayle and Brendon McCullum in the field. It is a must-match match and a must-bet game for online betting with 12Bet.

Jamaica Tallawahs Preview

Jamaica Tallawahs’ star-studded batting failed in the first play-offs match. None of their stalwarts managed to get going. Chris Gayle, Kumar Sangakkara, Shakib Al Hasan and Andre Russell all struggled in the low and slow pitch at Basseterre, St Kits. This match will also be played at the same venue. Among the players, Sangakkara and Shakib are best equipped to tackle the Trinbago team’s bowling attack, comprising Sunil Narine and Dwayne Bravo. Tallawahs’s batting must fire, for bowling is not their strongest forte.

Trinbago Knight Riders

Trinbago Knight Riders produced a sparkling performance in the do-or-die knock-out match against St Lucia Zouks. It will clearly boost their confidence ahead of this match.  Everything clicked for the team. First, their bowlers bowled with discipline to restrict Zouks’ in-form batting unit to a reasonably modest target. Then Umar Akmal and McCullum batted fearlessly to chase down the score by the 19th over. They will be keen to extend their winning streak. For cricket betting stakes, it will be smart to trust Knight Riders’ momentum.

Vital Stats

The statistics points to a possible win for Jamaica Tallawahs. The team won both the league fixtures against Trinbago Knight Riders. Chris Gayle slammed a typically six-filled hundred in one of those matches. Another innings like that from him, it will be goodbye for the Knight Riders.


Trinbago Knight Riders have the upper hand, as they have more in-form players than their opponents. But Tallawahs have Gayle and Andre Russell. They can change the course of the match single-handedly in a couple of overs. Choose your pick for cricket betting @ 12Bet.
