VenueSabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica
Chris Gayle’s Jamaica Tallawahs got their first setback of the CPL when they were beaten by Trinidad & Tobago by a margin of 13 runs in their fourth game. They have played four matches, won three, lost one whereas their opponents in the forthcoming encounter, Antigua Hawkbills, will be searching for their maiden victory of the event while taking part in the 6th one.
Chris Gayle will be the key to success for the home side since he is their top scorer with 219 runs comprising one hundred and a fifty. Chadwick Walton, Jermaine Blackwood and Adam Voges must contribute reasonably well for their success. Andre Russell is a useful all-rounder while Rusty Theron, Daniel Vettori and Nikita Miller are bowling perfectly.
Marlon Samuel is the lone fighter of Antigua Hawksbills but he requires a valid support from David Hussey, Ben Dunk, Danza Hyatt and Devon Thomas in the batting department. Carlos Brathwaite, Sheldon Cottrell and Ben Laughlin are working hard with the ball to defend their total.
Thursday July 31, 2014 @ 19.00 GMT, 14.00 local at Sabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica.
An ideal weather for T20 with the temperatures around 24-29ᵒC.
