Jamaica Tallawahs will have to score their highest score in the 2017 Caribbean Premier League Twenty20 history if they are to defeat front-runners Trinbago Knight Riders in their clash at Sabina Park.

This is after the Dwayne Bravo-captained Trinbago Knight Riders posted a massive 208 for six off their allotted 20 overs.

Leading the way for the Knight Riders was New Zealander Brendan McCallum, who scored a smashing 91 off 62 balls.

He was supported by fellow countryman Collin Munro, who added pain to the Tallawahs bowlers making 42 off 24 balls.

Darren Bravo with 28 off 13 and South African Robert Frylink 15 off 10 also ensured that Trinbago fell just four runs short of the highest score ever in the tournament.

Left-arm pacer Krishmar Santokie, two for 49, and and Rovman Powell, two for 38, led the way for the Tallawahs in the field with Keswick Williams and young all-rounder Odean Smith claiming a wicket each.
