Match Prediction

The Barbados side has some of the most exciting players but they have to put on a stronger effort than their previous game in order to win against Jamaica. The last time they met, was in the final match of the 2022 season when JAM managed an easy win to clinch the title. Looking into the circumstances, we back JAM to win this match too.
