CPL 2020 hasn't been kind to the Patriots fans with the Rayad Emrit-led side dwelling at the bottom of the points table. They have won only one game in seven outings so far and are on the brink of elimination.
On the other hand, the Tallawahs have fared better with six points in seven games. With Andre Russell also returning to the playing XI, the Tallawahs will look to end the league phase on a high and clinch a semi-final spot.
The reverse fixture between the two sides saw Glenn Phillips lead the Tallawahs to a crucial 37-run win at the Queen's Park Oval. With their backs up against the wall, the Patriots are out to keep their semi-final hopes alive although they are in for a stern test against Russell & Co. in what promises to be a thrilling encounter.

Match: St Kitts and Nevis Patriots vs Jamaica Tallawahs
Date: 3rd September 2020, at 7:30 PM IST
Venue: Brian Lara Cricket Academy, Trinidad
The pitch has played much bettter over the last few days at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy with the likes of Colin Munro and Andre Russell getting quick runs on Tuesday.
However, it should be a tad slower this time around with ample spin on offer for the spinners. Changes of pace will be the go-to deliveries for the pacers as both sides will hope to bat first and make good use of the conditions early on.
