Kieron Pollard is a must pick for your fantasy teams on any day in the T20 format.
Four-time champions, Trinbago Knight Riders haven’t performed according to their standards this year. They have managed to win only 2 out of their 5 matches and are currently placed at the 5th spot in the standings with 4 points. They lost to Guyana Amazon Warriors in the super over in their previous game which was heartbreaking for them.
On the other hand, Jamaica Tallawahs have been slightly inconsistent in this tournament. With 2 wins and as many losses, they have placed themselves at 4th spot in the standings with 4 points. They got a proper rest of 3 days, which must have helped them rejuvenate. Whoever wins this game will move up in the points table.

It looks like the wicket has picked up its pace and the ball is coming quite well onto the bat. It was evident on Saturday, when St Lucia Kings scored 224 runs while batting first. Chasing more than 180 runs is always a difficult job on this venue.
