The 28th match of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 is all set to be played between the Jamaica Tallawahs and the Barbados Tridents at the Brian Lara Stadium.
The match is scheduled to start at 02:15 PM Local Time (11:45 PM IST) (06:15 PM GMT).
The defending champions Barbados Tridents will be stepping on to the field for the last time in 2020 season as they will be up against Jamaica Tallawahs on Saturday. The Tridents have been terrible of last having not even aggregated 100 runs in any of their last three matches. They will be hoping to finish the tournament on a high with a victory over Tallawahs. The Jamaican team is finding out the chance of finishing higher in the points table and Saturday’s match will be crucial for that.
The pitch at the Brian Lara Stadium is expected to provide spin-friendly surfaces, especially during the afternoon matches as no work will be done to the morning track.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman
Mujeeb Ur Rahman is currently second-highest wicket-taker of the tournament having taken 13 wickets from 8 matches this season. He has given away runs at an economy rate of only 4.63 runs.
Andre Russell didn’t start the tournament on a great note but has picked up in his performances with the bat. He has scored some quick-fire fifties off late but wasn’t able to take his team through.
Rashid Khan has made major contributions with the ball for his team having taken ten wickets nine matches. He is expected to come up with some good performances with the bat if given a chance up the order more often.
Given the way Barbados Tridents have batted in the last three matches, it will be tough to see them getting away against the Jamaica Tallawahs.
Jamaica Tallawahs are expected to win this match.
