After a slight detour to Post of Spain, the Caribbean cricketing action is back to the Brian Lara Stadium. The pitch here 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 get into the contest as the pitch starts to deterirate later in the tournament.
There is a 30 per cent chance of rain on Tuesday and hence, there could be an interruption. The temperature will be around 29 degrees Celsius.
The Knight Riders haven't lost a single match in the tournament up until now and therfore the Tallawahs have their task cut out. The Jamaican side has blown hot, blown cold in the tournament so far and therfore the team wil have to play out of its skin to defeat Knight Riders.
Last 5 Head To Head
The Knight Riders are coming into this match after pulling a heist in the previous match. It was their captain incredible Kieron Pollard who smoked 28 ball 72 runs inning and ensured that knight Riders snatched a victory from the jaws of defeat.
