What's the match?

Barbados Royals face Jamaica Tallawahs in the 2022 Caribbean Premier League.

When is it taking place?

The match is scheduled to take place at 3pm local time (GMT-5) on Thursday, September 15.

Where is the match being played?

This game is due to be staged at the Queen's Park Oval in Trinidad.

Who's got the form?

Barbados Royals have set the standard in this season's competition, winning their opening six games without ever really looking like losing one.

Though not yet mathematically certain of finishing in the top two - or progressing directly for Qualifier 1 - it would take a remarkable turnaround to deliver any other outcome.

Royals will have one eye on emulating Trinbago Knight Riders' unbeaten campaign of 2020, which saw them win all 12 of their tournament matches to scoop the title.

Jamaica Tallawahs were leading the chasing pack but have fallen by the wayside in recent matches, losing three of their last four.

Their most recent reverse came in the rain-affected match against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots.

Beaten by eight wickets after only making 139 for 5 from their five overs, the Patriots were set an adjusted 113 to win which they polished off with 15 balls to spare.

What's the match-up to watch?

Kyle Mayers (285 runs, strike rate 164.73) and Rovman Powell (206, 138.25) will likely go past the combined 500-run barrier during this match, but who comes out on top could go a long way to deciding the contest.

In the bowling department, the same can be said of the battle between Mohammad Amir (10 wickets, economy rate 5.54) and Obed McCoy (nine, 8.42) who are likely to be thrown the ball at high-pressure moments.

What's the news from the camps?

Royals have seen Jason Holder, Obed McCoy and Kyle Mayers called into West Indies' men's T20 World Cup squad in the last 24 hours.

Tallawahs' captain Rovman Powell leads their contingent, with Brandon King and Raymon Reifer also enlisted. Fabian Allen, however, has been overlooked.
