Two of the Caribbean Premier League 2016's in-form teams clash in game 19 as Jamaica Tallawahs take on Trinbago Knight Riders at Sabina Park.
Both teams go into the match on the back of impressive victories over Saint Kitts & Nevis Patriots and Tridents respectively and both are hunting down league leaders Guyana Amazon Warriors.
Jamaica were utterly dominant in their win over the Patriots, as a victory margin of 108 runs would suggest. Kumar Sangakkara continued his fine form with another half-century and Rovmon Powell and Shakib Al Hasan also made contributions.
With the ball, Kesrick Williams took three wickets as Andre Russell, Dale Steyn and Shakib grabbed a brace apiece. Any time a team can bowl another out for less than 100 runs shows that they are a force with ball in hand to be feared.
It has also been very important for Jamaica to be able to win matches even when Chris Gayle has not scored big runs, showing they have built a well balanced squad that is capable of beating any team on any day.
This is their final game at Sabina Park so they will be desperate to give their home fans a winning send-off, although home advantage may not mean as much as it has in previous games against a Trinbago side on a bit of a run.
They have just come off the back of a win over Tridents in Barbados, where conditions are similar to what they can expect to find in Jamaica.
That win in Barbados was a mighty impressive performance and who would have thought before the tournament that their top order would be doing so well even without Brendon McCullum in the side?
The combination at the top of Hashim Amla, William Perkins and Colin Munro is working beautifully and although the bowlers took a few games to really find their groove, they have now done so.
Led by Dwayne Bravo, who now has 10 wickets in the tournament so far, he and Sunil Narine (8 wickets) will relish the challenge of taking on the Jamaican side and few would back against them doing an excellent job once again.
When these two sides met in the early stages of the competition, Jamaica completed an away victory by seven wickets - largely thanks to Gayle's unbeaten 108 in 54 balls.
This time around, if the Trinbago top order delivers and Gayle doesn't, it will be another good test of how well Jamaica are working as a unit and that could well be the key to the game.
