BAR vs JAM Dream11 : Bottom of the table clash sees Barbados Tridents try to nail down a spot in the top 4 today
With round 2 of the league stage encounters in the Caribbean Premier League well underway now, the clamour for a spot in the top 4 has truly taken precedence over everything else. And two sides who’ll be fortuitously wishing that the new round of fixtures fare off better than the previous one are Barbados Tridents and Jamaica Tallawahs, two outfits who have massively failed to impress till now.
For both of our opponents of the day, CPL 2019 has been nothing to write home about. More so for Jamaica Tallawahs who find themselves well off the battle for a spot in the top 4, currently slumped in last place with just the one win in 7 encounters, an ordeal which has seen them sizzle before they could fizzle.
Now as the side gets ready to face off against Barbados Tridents today, Jamaica Tallawahs will be well aware that they can’t afford to regress even more. Another defeat today would well lay down the foundation of their life in the league ceding, a predicament they’ll be looking to save themselves from against a side who themselves haven’t managed to string together two meaningful results.
With just two wins from five matches, Barbados Tridents have just about managed to keep themselves in the race for a spot in the top 4, currently occupying fourth place but they’ll well aware its one from which they can easily slip up from. They lost to Guyana by 12 runs in the previous match through DLS, a defeat which came down heavily on them, making today’s clash a must win one.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Rain looks likely to hamper proceedings today with incessant widespread rainfall lashing the surface for the past few days. We could either be in for a shortened encounter or an entirely truncated match, one which will lead the side winning the toss choose to field first.
Overall, this should be a solid batting track with the ball rising on nicely to the bat, allowing the batsmen plenty of time and room to send it to the fence. The new ball will definitely deviate given the conditions but nothing too series to perturb the batsmen.
Probable Playing 11
Johnson Charles, Alex Hales, Justin Greaves, Leniko Boucher (wk), JP Duminy, Jason Holder (c), Jonathan Carter, Ashley Nurse, Joshua Bishop, Josh Lalor, Sandeep Lamichhane
Chris Gayle, Glen Phillips (wk), Chadwick Walton (c), Andre Russell, George Worker, Dwayne Smith, Javelle Glen, Zahir Khan, Oshane Thomas, Jade Dernbach, Jerome Taylor
BAR vs JAM Match Prediction
It’s tough determining a winner from today’s encounter with both the sides have their own but opposing problems. Where Jamaica Tallawahs have impressed in the batting department, they have dwindled on the bowling front while Barbados Tridents have massively failed when it comes to batting.
What does favour Jamaica Tallawahs today is their batting on this wicket, one which should see them outscore their opponents and register their second win today.

BAR vs JAM Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
There was absolutely no hesitation in roping in Glenn Phillips into our side in this segment. At a time when everyone else has waned for Jamaica Tallawahs, the wicket-keeper has emerged as perhaps the one thing to rejoice about for the side, scoring on a consistent basis to become the sides highest scorer. He took just 49 balls to score 80 in the last match and we envision him to get another gigantic score today as well.
BAR vs JAM Dream11 Batsmen
With rain likely to make a foray today and leave proceedings in angst, we have decided to venture in with only the top-order batsmen from both the sides. The chances of overs being reduced and cut down are too high, meaning the likelihood of names coming down from number 4 is extremely low.
This sees us begin with Chris Gayle from Jamaica Tallawahs and Chadwick Walton, two names capable of coming out and peeling the ball to the fence in the limited overs they get while from Barbados Tridents we have decided to venture in with their opener, Johnson Charles for this one.
BAR vs JAM Dream11 All-Rounders
As the matches have rummaged in the league, Barbados Tridents have started according a higher role to Jason Holder and JP Duminy, not only escalating their roles in the batting order but elevating them to frontline bowlers as well. These two players hold the perfect identities of all-rounders, players we scour for first when crafting our all-rounder facet, making both of them instant picks.
Elsewhere from the other side we have decided to go in with only the one pick in the form of Andre Russell for this one.
BAR vs JAM Dream11 Bowling Order
With rain set to make an advent, our only consideration when choosing bowlers was based on the priority they are given in their bowling orders. New ball bowlers and players who can bowl a restrictive line and length took precedence over everything else, making Ramaal Lewis from Jamaica Tallawahs our first pick.
Shamar Springer comes in as well after the 30 ball 30 run knock he doled out with the bat previously along with Zahir Khan owing to is left arm brand of spin bowling while from the Tridents we have the lone selection of Josh Lalor wrap up our side for today.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Phillips was an undisputed choice for captain while we are moving in with Lewis as our vice-captain.
