Venue: Brian Lara Stadium, Trinidad, Tarouba, West Indies
The Patriots have lost their last hope to stay in the hunt for a top 4 finish by losing their last game, which means now they are officially out of the tournament. Their opponents on Thursday, the Jamaica Tawallahs are well in contention for a top 4 finish they need at least a couple of victories from their remaining 3 games. When these two sides met earlier in the season the Patriots were rattled by Tallawahs in chasing 147. So given the sloppy form of the Patriots and the H2H record, it’s imperative to pick as many players as possible from the Tallawahs team in the fantasy game.
Chadwick Walton, Glenn Phillips(w), Jermaine Blackwood, Nkrumah Bonner, Rovman Powell(c), Andre Russell, Asif Ali, Carlos Brathwaite, Sandeep Lamichhane, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Fidel Edwards
Evin Lewis, Chris Lynn, Joshua Da Silva, Ben Dunk, Denesh Ramdin(w), Dominic Drakes, Alzarri Joseph, Rayad Emrit(c), Imran Khan, Sheldon Cottrell, Jon-Russ Jaggesar
The surface at Brian Lara Stadium has offered something for everyone so far in the season. The average score at this venue has been around 150. Picking as many bowling options as possible in the fantasy team is a key factor as bowlers had the upper hand so far in the season.
The Jamaican opening batsman has been the most consistent performer for the side with the bat. He has a PPM of 52 in the tour. At this venue, he has been even more consistent with a PPM of 55 and an MDTA of 1.33.
The Jamaican all-rounder has been as consistent as Philips in the seasons. He may not have had much impact with the ball but with the bat, he has been instrumental at the back of the innings as usual. He has a PPM of 62 and an MDTA of 1.25 in the tour.
He is the most consistent bowler of the tournament with 13 wickets from 7 matches. The last game is the only one where he has gone without a wicket. But we expect that to change given his form in the tour. He has a PPM of 66 and an MDTA of 1.17.
In the second half of the season, he seems to have found some sort of form with the ball. Bowling in crucial phases of an innings has made him amongst the wickets. His batting can also be handy at times.
The Windes international has been sub-par with his performance so far in the tour given his credentials in the format. He also struggled with his fitness in the tour which is one of the reasons for his ordinary show.
