The 2022 Caribbean Premier League kicks off on Wednesday evening at Warner Park in Basseterre with the Jamaica Tallawahs taking on St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The Jamaica Tallawahs finished fifth in the 2021 competition after winning four of ten games. The Patriots won both the 2021 CPL and the recent 6ixty tournament. Continue reading for cricket betting predictions. This match begins at 19:00 local time.
The Jamaica Tallawahs lost form at the worst possible time last season, but they have recruited impressively for the 2022 season. Taking on the 2021 Champions, on the other hand, will be a difficult task.
With an exciting mix of youth and experience, the Patriots won the 2021 tournament. Despite personnel changes, we still expect them to be the team to beat in this campaign.
JAM vs SKN Match Toss Prediction
Although some teams chose to bat first at times during last year’s campaign, it is predicted that both captains will want to chase and will bowl first in this game.
JAM vs SKN Pitch Report
The surface in Warner Park will be quick and bouncy, as we saw during the 6ixty competition last week. A par score of more than 150 is expected.
This tournament opener in Basseterre was hot and humid. From start to finish, the temperature will be in the mid-high 20s.

Jamaica Tallawahs Team News & Playing 11
JAM Team News
The Tallawahs finished only two points out of the top four last year, and a few changes in personnel and performance could make a significant difference in how they perform this year. It could be an exciting season if captain Rovman Powell and experienced all-rounder Fabian Allen can be consistent.
JAM Key Players
- Brandon King – The top-order batter has struggled with his fitness in recent months, but he has been in good form when batting in the middle.
- Rovman Powell – The big-hitting middle-order batter is expected to be a wicketkeeper as well as the team’s captain. He frequently takes a few balls to get in, but he is a destructive player once there.
- Mohammad Amir – Over the last year, the former Pakistan international has been inconsistent. The Tallawahs will benefit greatly if he improves his game.
JAM Team Form
Last season, the Jamaica Tallawahs were eliminated from the playoffs after losing their final two games.

Kirk McKenzie, Kennar Lewis, Brandon King, Shamarh Brooks, Imad Wasim, Rovman Powell (c) (wk), Raymon Reifer, Fabian Allen, Jamie Merchant, Migael Pretorius, Mohammad Amir

- Evin Lewis – The 30-year-old left-handed opener hit 38 sixes in the 2021 CPL, with only Roston Chase scoring more runs (426 in 11 innings).
- Dewald Brevis – The 19-year-old South African batting all-rounder impressed for the Mumbai Indians in this year’s IPL after putting in some strong performances in his domestic T20 league.
- Dominic Drakes – The left-arm pace bowler has yet to shine on the international stage, but he has been a standout in global T20 leagues over the last 24 months.
SKN Team Form
St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots lost two of their final three group stage games, but recovered in time to win both of their playoff games and win the tournament.
