Jamaica Tallawahs Reviews
Rovman Powell had been appointed as a new captain of Jamaica Tallawahs. This team has a good combination of batter, bowlers, and all-rounders. Rovman Powell will be handling the batting order of Tallawahs with Brandon King, Shamarh Brooks, and Jamie Merchant. Kennar Lewis and Amir Jangoo are wicket-keeper batters in the squad of Jamaica Tallawahs. Some best batting all-rounders of T20 cricket are also part of the squad, like Fabian Allen and Joshua James.
Mohammad Amir will be leading the bowling unit of Jamaica Tallawahs with some other experienced bowlers like Sandeep Lamichhane, Shamar Springer, and Nicholson Gordon. Imad Wasim, Migael Pretorius, Chris Green, Raymon Reifer, and Kirk McKenzie are bowling all-rounders in the squad of Tallawahs. Jamaica Tallawahs is a well-balanced team and we are sure that they will not repeat the performance of the previous season of CPL.

Toss Prediction in Today Match Prediction
The toss is going to play a key role in the result of every match of the Caribbean Premier T20 League as we had observed in the previous seasons. According to our toss prediction, the team who will win the toss will elect to field first as there is some rain expected which can make the batting a bit difficult.
Pitch Report and Conditions
The 1st Match of the Caribbean Premier League is going to be played at Warner Park, Basseterre, St Kitts. We had observed in the previous matches played here that the pitch here at this venue is good for batting. The track is slower than the others we have seen and helps the spinners quite a bit. We are hoping that the surface is bound to get slower and be a bit more difficult for batting in this match. A score of 185 is going to be tough to chase.
