The CPL 2020 group stage is now over and it is time for the playoffs. This season, we are going to have a traditional semi-final format which makes it pretty open. The fourth-placed team just has much of a chance of winning the CPL title as the first-placed team.
The first CPL semi-final is going to be played between the Trinbago Knight Riders and the Jamaica Tallawahs. These are two teams that have taken a very different route to the semi-final. The Trinbago Knight Riders have won all ten of their matches while the Jamaica Tallawahs have won just three.
The gulf between the two teams seems to be massive. Can the Tallawahs pull off one of the biggest upsets we have seen in the history of the Caribbean Premier League? Let’s try and analyze what can happen and look for some quality money-making opportunities along the way.
Trinbago Knight Riders vs Jamaica Tallawahs CPL 2020 1st Semi-Final is going to be played at the Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad on the 8th of September 2020.
The Trinbago Knight Riders have been unstoppable in CPL 2020 so far and it is going to take something very special to stop them from winning. After trying out a few players in their previous matches, we expect to see the full-strength team turn out in the next one.
That means Sunil Narine at the top of the order, Lendl Simmons, Colin Munro, Darren Bravo, and Kieron Pollard to headline the batting lineup. Tim Siefert should find a place in the eleven and perhaps Sikandar Raza might be quite close to making the team as well.
The real difference between the Trinbago Knight Riders and the others has been the depth in their squad. One or more of the players from TKR is able to stand up and deliver in each match. The form of Kieron Pollard has also been something to behold.
Pollard is on a mission and is the most dangerous batsman in T20 cricket today.
On paper, there is no question that TKR is stronger than any other side in CPL T20 in terms of batting.
The bowling is going to be led by Sunil Narine, Ali Khan, Dwayne Bravo, and Kieron Pollard. We think Fawad Ahmed may get a chance to play ahead of Khary Pierre after his four-wicket haul but either way, TKR should have enough bowling to be able to keep the struggling Jamaica Tallawahs batting in check.
Tim Seifert, LMP Simmons, Tion Webster, Darren Bravo, SP Narine, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Akeal Hosein, Fawad Ahmed, Ali Khan, Khary Pierre.
The Jamaica Tallawahs have lost their previous three completed matches and come into this match as firm underdogs. The Tallawahs lost nine wickets for just 46 runs as they crashed to a defeat against the Zouks in their most recent match.
The lack of consistency in the batting has been remarkable considering the amount of batting talent they have in their ranks. The focus on Andre Russell is nothing new. That follows him wherever in the world he plays and the recent talk about him being promoted up the order is something that we could see in this match.
The Jamaica Tallawahs will have to do something special and perhaps out of this world to be able to win this match. That is where Andre Russell comes in. He can provide the sort of inning that can take the game away from the Knight Riders.
Glenn Phillips and Jermaine Blackwood appear to be the other batsmen that are in some sort of form. You are never too far away from a batting collapse when you are the Jamaica Tallawahs and this is why we would be afraid of backing them.
The bowling attack for the Tallawahs has not been very impressive either. Sandeep Lamichhane and Mujeeb ur Rehman are the only two bowlers that have had some sort of impact in CPL 2020 for the Tallawahs. Carols Brathwaite, Veersamy Permaul, and even Fidel Edwards have been quite disappointing.
Nothing about this Tallawahs side screams winner and they will have to hope for something astonishing from one of their players.
GD Phillips, Rovman Powell, Asif Ali, Jermaine Blackwood, NE Bonner, Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Sandeep Lamichhane, Veerasammy Permaul, FH Edwards.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. Rain could make it a DLS match and that is where the chasing team has a big advantage.
Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.
A lot of rain is predicted during the first half of the day on matchday. That means we could have a DLS situation or even one where the match is washed out. There are no reserve days and if the rain does not allow the match to take place, TKR will go through.
The presence of Andre Russell makes the Tallawahs more dangerous as the match gets shorter and so take a risk with your bet if you see the match being reduced by 8 overs or more.
The pitch is going to be slow and helpful to the spinners. That has been the case for the entire CPL and is not going to change now.

There is just too much going the way of the Trinbago Knight Riders in this match. They have a stronger batting lineup, a superior bowling attack, and Kieron Pollard in the best form of his life. The Knight Riders can have a bad day and still beat the Jamaica Tallawahs easily.
Bet on the Trinbago Knight Riders to win.
This is one of the best value bets out there on any website. TKR has Sunil Narine and Lendl Simmons to start off with Colin Munro at 3 even if an early wicket falls. You are getting a nearly 75% return for something that seems like a sure thing. If this bet does not come through it is going to be a huge shock. Definitely worth betting on.
Russell has been in very good batting form off late and is perhaps the one real threat that the Jamaica Tallawahs have to beat TKR. He is sure to get a chance to bat plenty of overs, no matter what the toss ends up being. We think a score of 20 or more to win you this bet is a very good chance to make some money.
This bet is basically giving away money at this point. Kieron Pollard has been striking the ball brilliantly. He is brilliant against the spinners and just needs to clear the boundary once to win you this bet. Close to 50% profit for this seems to be too good to be true but it is not and you can take advantage of it.
