TKR vs JAM Dream11 Prediction: Trinbago Knight Riders vs Jamaica Tallawahs – 21 August 2020 (Trinidad)
Jamaica Tallwahs will take on Trinbago Knight Riders in the first Match of CPL 2020 aka Caribbean Premier League which will be played at the Brian Lara Cricket Stadium in the Trinidad. The T20 cricket is finally back on the T20 land of the Caribbean after the COVID-19 heartbreak.
Trinbago Knight Riders registered a wonderful victory in the first game of the tournament against the strong Guyana side. Trinbago looks perfectly settled as a team in all the departments and they would like to dominate in this game too.
Jamaica Tallwahs, on the other hand, also registered a brilliant victory their last game against the St. Lucia side. The batting of Glenn Phillips and Asif Ali will be a huge plus for the side and if Andre Russel gets going, Jamaica will become a threatening team this season.
Pitch Report – This pitch will not allow a high scoring contest as it is slow turner and spinners are getting a lot of help from it.

5 Must-Have Players in the Squad
Glenn Phillips, Sunil Narine, Andre Russel, Mujeeb-ur-Rehman, and Lendl Simmons.
TKR vs JAM Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Tim Seifert (Price 8.5) will be the wicket-keeper of our squad. Seifert is a really good batsman and will help in managing the credits as well for the team. He has scored 1 century and 8 half-centuries in his T20 career and will be a really good pick. Tim is picked to manage the credits too in this game.
TKR vs JAM Dream11 Batsmen
Lendl Simmons (Price 9.5) and Colin Munro (Price 9) will be our batsmen from the Knights. Simmons was brilliant in the CPL 2019 and his average was almost 40 with the bat. He will open the innings for his side and will be a definite pick whereas Munro has 3 T20I centuries to his name and is a genuine T20 match-winner. Both of them didn’t perform well in the last game and are T20 superstars, they will definitely be in our team.
Glenn Phillips (Price 9.5) and Asif Ali (Price 8.5) will be our batsmen from the Tallawahs. Phillips is a brilliant opener and has scored 374 runs in just 10 games in CPL 2019, he started the CPL 2020 brilliantly as well whereas Ali also proved his batting powers in the last game by guiding Jamaica to the victory. The S/R of Ali in T20 games touches 150. Both of them will be in our team.
TKR vs JAM Dream11 All-Rounders
Sunil Narine (Price 10) and Dwayne Bravo (Price 9.5) will be our all-rounders from the Knights. Sunil is a T20 superstar and he delivered a Man of the Match performance in the last game as well with both bat and the ball whereas Bravo is the highest wicket-taker of CPL history and he is just a couple of wickets away from the 100 wickets mark. Both of them will be in our team.
Andre Russel (Price 10.5) will be our all-rounder from the Tallawahs. Russel does not need any numbers to prove his worth in T20 cricket. He is a gun player with both bat and the ball. The idea of dropping Russel will be horrific. Russel also started the tournament on a good note.
TKR vs JAM Dream11 Bowlers
Ali Khan (Price 8) will be our bowler from Knights. Ali is a genuine T20 cricket wicket-taker and will bowl the powerplay overs as well. He bowled well against the Warriors and would like to continue his good form with the bowl.
Mujeeb ur Rehman (Price 9) and Verasammy Permaul (Price 8) will be our bowlers from Tallawahs. Mujeeb is a genuine T20 match-winner and he picked a couple of wickets in the last game as well whereas Pemaul also proved that he is a very good spinner and can take advantage of the turning tracks. Both of them are genuine wicket-takers and will be picked.
Match Prediction: Trinbago Knight Riders will be the favourites to win this game.
