Key Player to watch for the Tridents – Kieron Pollard is the man to watch. Everytime the Tridents played the Tallawahs they always put on 100 runs in the last 10 overs. Majority of those runs are key due to the runs off Pollards hard hitting ability. To tame him the Tallawahs will have to find the good length deliverers.
Key Player for Tallawahs – Chris Gayle is the key man. He can strike the ball anywhere across the ground but he will be key in how the innings plays out for the Tallawahs. If he is out early, then a lot of pressure will be on Russell to anchor Jamaica to victory.
