Jamaica Tallawahs vs. St Kitts & Nevis Patriots: September 8, CPL 2021 Prediction
September 8, 2021 10:00 am
The famous Warner Park will host this exciting match between two teams who have it all to play for in the Caribbean Premier League 2021 season. The 21st match of the CPL 2021 pits early-season pace-setters St Kitts & Nevis Patriots against the struggling Jamaica Tallawahs.
St Kitts & Nevis Patriots have had a season entirely different from their performance last season. The Patriots were the poorest team in the Caribbean Premier League last season, but they began its latest edition with five wins from their first five matches. Two humbling defeats have followed those early wins, but St Kitts & Nevis still sit on top of the league table with ten points, two points clear of their nearest competitors. The Patriots have had to rely on Sherfane Rutherford’s brilliance, and the impressive batsman has responded with typical consistency whenever he’s been called upon.
The Jamaica Tallawahs still boasts a pretty good lineup, but results from this season have been underwhelming by their usual standards. The Tallawahs have won two and lost three out of five matches, sitting fourth on the league table. This match will be a serious test of their title ambitions for this edition of the CPL.
Match Predictions and Betting Odds
Jamaica Tallawahs vs. St Kitts & Nevis Patriots encounters are evenly matched more often than not. Still, recently, the Patriots have gotten the better of their rivals, with three wins from the last five meetings between both teams.
Our match 21 prediction is a tough one to call, seeing as these two teams typically bring their A-game whenever they face off. The Patriots saw their winning streak snapped by Faf du Plessis’ unreal 120* performance for the St Lucia Kings, and the Tallawahs will be hoping star man Kennar Lewis can replicate that performance against their table-topping rivals. Based on the solid form they’ve shown this season, we’re backing STKNP to edge JT in this clash.
