Jamaica Tallawahs (JT) in CPL

Jamaica Tallawahs is one of the three teams in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) that has something to show in their trophy cabinet. The franchise won its first trophy in the inaugural season back in 2013 and then won it a second time in 2016, becoming the first team at that time to have multiple CPL titles. The Tallawahs holds a unique record to their name of playing 11 local (Jamaican) players in a match against Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel (now Trinbago Knight Riders) in 2013. The Jamaica Tallawahs team has continued with a similar approach in the subsequent seasons as well, which shows how good they are at promoting local talent. Led by Jamaican Rovman Powell, the current squad too has 7 players from the tiny island.

Due to the poor performance last season, the owners went for a huge revamp in the squad by signing many new players. Now, on paper, they seem to be a top contender for the title, especially if their top players perform in an expected manner. Thanks to the likes of Chadwick Walton, Andre Russell, Carlos Braithwaite, Oshane Thomas, and Sandip Lamichhane in the squad, the team has several match-winners in their ranks. With the right mix of young energy and experience, it would be interesting to see the performance of Jamaica Tallawahs in CPL 2020.

SWOT Analysis for JT Team 2020

Check the SWOT analysis of JT below to understand the team's potential in CPL 2020. The CPL fantasy 2020 players must check these stats before building their team to be able to increase their chances of winning the contests.

Strengths of JT

In Andre Russell, the franchise has arguably the most feared all-rounder in the world, when it comes to T20, and that in itself is a huge strength for the team. In him, the team has a player who can single-handedly win a match. Furthermore, with experienced players like Chadwick Walton, Andre Fletcher, Rovman Powell, Fidel Edwards, and more in the squad, this team has the ability to come out on top during those crunch situations.

Weaknesses of JT

Due to the absence of Tabraiz Shamsi in this season, the team's spin bowling department now hugely depends on the young shoulders of Sandip Lamichhane. Aged just 20, he would pretty much be leading the spin-bowling unit and the lack of a quality spin bowler to aid him can prove to be costly for the Tallawahs.

Opportunities for JT

After finishing rock bottom in the last season, it is a good opportunity for the team to bounce back with flying colors this time around. With so many new signings in 2020, the team would be hoping to turn the fortunes in their favor. Furthermore, it is also an opportunity for them to become only the second team to win 3 CPL titles.

Threats for JT

When you look at this Jamaica Tallawahs Squad, the first thing you notice is the lack of quality spinners, which can make a huge impact during games that are played in dry conditions. This can also result in the lack of wickets during the middle overs, as it is the spinners that get you those crucial breakthroughs during this phase.

Jamaica Tallawahs Squad 2020

Rovman Powell (C), Andre Russell, Oshane Thomas, Chadwick Walton, Glenn Phillips, Sandeep Lamichhane, Carlos Brathwaite, Asif Ali, Tabraiz Shamsi, Fidel Edwards, Preston McSween, Andre McCarthy, Nicholas Kirton, Jeavor Royal, Nkrumah Bonner, Veerasammy Permaul and Ryan Persaud.
