The 2nd match of the 6ixty will see Jamaica Tallawahs facing off against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots on 25th August at Warner Park.
This match will witness a battle between two power hitters of the team. Tallawahs are led by Windies vice captain Rovman Powell, whereas, St Kitts are led by Chris Gayle.

“I’m really excited to be back in the field. I missed it. I’m like a kid again, looking forward to the first game… For my debut. I’ll have to get back in shape. I’m still in shape but just a li’l (little) prep here and there to get in that mindset of playing cricket,” Gayle told Espn.
The surface at Warner Park is a batting-friendly wicket and is expected to assist the batters hugely in both innings. There is very little help on offer for the pacers early on, and the spinners may come in handy in the middle overs.
