The pitch here at Brian Lara Stadium has enough for the bowlers and batsmen both. After some initial seam movement, the ball comes onto the bat easily as we saw yesterday in the Tallwahas vs Zouks match. The bounce at times is spongy but otherwise trustworthy and the outfield is racing quick. The spin bowlers will be in the contest as the pitch has deteriorated after several games played on the same strip.
There is 67 percent chance of precipitation and therefore we are keeping our fingers crossed that the rain-gods stay away and we get to see some play. The maximum temperature will be 32 degree celsius.
After winning all 10 matches in the group-stage, will the law of averages catch up with Trinbago Knight Riders in the big knockout? or will Jamaica Tallawahs fold before the might of TKR. It is difficult to predict but one thins is certain that this match is going down to the wire.
