Match 21 of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) pits the Jamaica Tallawahs up against the table-toppers Trinbago Knight Riders in what promises to be an exciting contest at the Brian Lara Stadium.
The Knight Riders have been utterly sensational in this tournament with the likes of Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo in fine form. On the other hand, the Tallawahs have been a touch inconsistent although they are firmly in the running for a play-off place with six points in six games.
They are in for a tough test against the Knight Riders, who are currently unbeaten after six games. With a win in this fixture guaranteeing a play-off place, Pollard and Co. will go all out for the win against the spin threat of Mujeeb and Lamichhane.
All in all, another cracking encounter beckons as the final CPL leg begins on Tuesday.

If the first leg of the CPL was any indication, the batsmen are in for another tough time against the spinners. With this being a relatively fresh track, the pacers should get some purchase out of this with some swing on offer early on.
Wickets in hand will be key for both sides, with 150 representing a par score at this venue. The pitch conditions shouldn't change much and a competitive clash is in store on Tuesday.
