Jamaica Tallawahs will come into a face-off with the Barbados Royals in the sixth match of the CPL 2021 at Warner Park in St Kitts on Sunday.
Jamaica Tallawahs started their CPL campaign by scripting a historic win over Saint Lucia Kings. Batting first, they posted a mammoth total of 255 runs which is the second-highest score in the history of CPL. All their batsmen are in the top five scored runs list with Andre Russell smashing the fastest fifty in the history of the CPL. He stayed unbeaten on 50 off just 44 balls.
Saint Lucia Kings innings were wrapped up for 135 as the Tallawahs registered an iconic 120 runs win. Migael Pretorious & Imran Khan starred with the ball. With this stellar performance, Jamaica will go into their next CPL match in full confidence. On the other hand, the Barbados Royals didn’t have an impressive start to CPL 2021. They faced a humiliating defeat against the Trinbago Knight Riders as they were bowled out for 122 runs. The Defending Champions chased the target with six wickets to spare.
The Royals will have to perform well with both bat & ball in this contest as they struggle to seal their first win. However, they will face tough competition from a ruthless Jamaican team.
