KINGSTON, Jamaica:
The Jamaica Tallawahs have won the toss and elected to field in their top-of-the-table HERO Motocorp Caribbean Premier League Twenty20 clash at Sabina Park against leaders Guyana Amazon Warriors.

The Tallawahs, who are now third in the points standings following last night’s last set of matches, has made two changes to their starting line-up in their rain-affected no-result encounter against Barbados Tridents last Monday.

All-rounder Andre Russell is back.

Russell had missed the last matches due to an injury.

He replaces Australian batsman Alex Ross while Pakistani left-arm spinner Imad Wasin is in for young off-spinner Jon-Ross Jaggessar of Trinidad and Tobago.

Guyana leads the standings with 10 points following five wins and a defeat, while the Tallawahs are third on five with two wins, a loss and a no-result.

Barbados moved to second last night on five points, but with a better net run rate after defeating St Kitts and Nevis by 25 runs in Barbados.
