2018 Afghanistan Premier League – Nangarhar Leopards vs Paktia Panthers Preview

Paktia have some big names in their squad and their batting line-up could take the game away from any side, but their weak bowling unit has to be a big concern. Their squad has arguably the least balance of any team.

Vitality t20 Blast 2018 – Worcestershire Rapids vs Sussex Sharks Preview

It is fascinating that these two teams have never met in T20 competitions and it is set to be an excellent final. The Rapids were excellent with the ball in defending 169 but they will face an even better bowling attack which is ominous for them.

2018 Caribbean Premier League – St Kitts & Nevis Patriots vs Jamaica Tallawahs Preview

Form is certainly with the Tallawahs as they come into this game match against the Patriots. The sheer depth of the Tallawahs batting line-up gives them a major edge here, but the absence of Lamichhane has really hampered the Patiots.

Ireland v Afghanistan – 3rd One-Day International Preview

This series is nicely poised at 1-1 so it all comes down to this decider. The longer format has suited the Irish more than T20 where the Afghans had a clear edge with both bat and ball.

Rain is almost certain to affect this match which really does make this one a tough match to call. There is a reserve day available if no play is possible on Sunday but they will be keen to avoid that.

2018 Caribbean Premier League – St Lucia Stars vs Jamaica Tallawahs Preview

Neither of these sides inspire much confidence at the moment but both are desperate for a win. The Stars are becoming tough to predict on in contrast to a couple of weeks ago when it seemed inevitable they would lose.

2018 Caribbean Premier League – Barbados Tridents vs St Kitts & Nevis Patriots Preview

This is a close match looking at the teams on paper. The Tridents continue to be a difficult team to read given the fact they have only played three matches and those have been spread out.
