JAM vs BAR CPL 2018: FPJ’s dream XI prediction for Jamaica Tallawahs and Barbados Tridents


Eyeing to get back on winning ways, Tallawahs will take on Tridents in the 14th game. Both teams have played nine matches against each other in the history of CPL with the Tallawahs leading the scoreline 5-4. The Tallawahs are placed third in the standings. After getting off to a good start, looks like they are losing their way with back-to-back defeats. Glenn Phillips is looking in good touch and David Miller is also coming from a stunning 72 runs off 34 balls knock. Skipper Andre Russell is leading the team with the ball and bat. He is the leading wicket-taker on charts with 9 wickets. Here are the probable dream XI for the Tallawahs:

Jamaica Tallawahs: Andre Russell, Imad Wasim, Krishmar Santokie, Adam Zampa, Oshane Thomas, Kennar Lewis, Glenn Phillips, Ross Taylor, David Miller, Steven Taylor and Rovman Powell.

Tridents are placed 4th in the points table with one win and one loss. They beat Guyana Warriors by 30 runs in the opener, however, then suffered a 38-run loss against St Lucia Stars in the last outing. Shai Hope is the leading run-scorer for the side and will be crucial for the team. Dwayne Smith is back in form against St Lucia Stars and the team will want him to keep up the good work. Here we see the probable dream XI for the Tridents:

Barbados Tridents: Jason Holder, Raymon Reifer, Wahab Riaz, Ashley Nurse, Mohammad Irfan, Dwayne Smith, Martin Guptill, Hashim Amla, Steven Smith, Nicholas Pooran and Shai Hope.
