Match Preview

Caribbean Premier League has started with a bang with two last over finishes in the first day itself. CPL2020 started with an uninvited guest in the form of the rain but they took away only 6 overs from the first day as the opening match was reduced to 17 overs per side contest.

Guyana Amazon Warriors and St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots did not have a good start as both teams lost their opening encounter. They will have a chance to redeem themselves and put their first points on the table with a victory in this match. We can expect a cracking contest between two quality sides that has a host of T20 superstars in their squad.

Teams Preview

Guyana Amazon Warriors Preview

Warriors openers were dismissed inside powerplay for low scores with team tethering at 23/2 in 4 overs. Shimron Hetmyer (63 runs) joined with Ross Taylor (33 runs) to steady the ship with their 50-run partnership. Nicholas Pooran (18 runs) and Keemo Paul (16 runs) made vital contributions alongside Hetmyer to take their team to a competitive total of 144 runs in 17 overs.

Their bowling unit failed to restrict the opposition in the chase as the Knight Riders kept the scoring rate under control always. Keemo Paul and Naveen Ul Haq were the only bowlers to bowl at economy less than 10 RPO. The spin duo of Imran Tahir and Chris Green had combined bowling figures of 7-0-72-2 in the match.

Key Players:

Keemo Paul– Keemo Paul is an exciting young talent who can contribute with both bat and ball. He made a crucial 15 runs and had decent figures of 3-0-21-1 in the match.

Shimron Hetmyer – Hetmyer played a superb knock of 63 runs off 44 balls to lead his team`s batting unit. He is a dangerous player who is looking at a good touch which is bad omen for the oppositions to come.

Guyana Amazon Warriors Predicted Playing XI:

Brandon King, ChandrapaulHemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Ross Taylor, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Sherfane Rutherford, Chris Green (c), Romario Shepherd, Keemo Paul, Naveen-ul-Haq, Imran Tahir

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots Preview

Patriots will be disappointed as they failed to chase the score with 5 wickets remaining at the end. Evin Lewis struggled to time the ball early on but Chris Lynn looked good for his 17-ball 19 runs. Joshua De Silva (41* runs) and Ben Dunk (34 runs) kept their team in the hunt in the middle overs but were not able to cross the line.

All the five bowlers picked up wickets last night but gave away 153 runs in their 20 overs. Sheldon Cottrell, Rayad Emrit, and Sohail Tanvir picked up two wickets and gave runs at less than 6 RPO while Ish Sodhi and Alzarri Joseph went for runs at 10+ RPO. Spinners Imran Khan or JR Jaggesar may get a game replacing a pacer in this match.

Key Players:

Sheldon Cottrell– Sheldon Cottrell took the wickets of Jonathan Charles and Corey Anderson in his first over to put the opposition on backfoot. He finished with impressive figures of 4-0-16-2 last night.

Joshua De Silva–De Silva will be gutted as he was not able to press the scoring rate with a run-a-ball 41 runs last night. He will look to attack the bowlers early in this match and help his team post a good score.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots Predicted Playing XI:

Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis, Ben Dunk, DeneshRamdin (wk), Jahmar Hamilton, Joshua Da Silva, Sohail Tanvir, RayadEmrit (c), Ish Sodhi, Sheldon Cottrell, Imran Khan/JR Juggesar

Weather Conditions

Trinidad is expected to have intermittent showers this week and we expect the weather to make some interruptions in this match too. But we hope to game at least a shortened one.

Venue Details

The pitch at this venue has been a little sluggish with the ball coming slower onto the bat. Spinners may enjoy bowling here and the pace bowlers may find their slower balls and cutters effective on this track. We can expect scores in the range of 140-160 runs and any score above 160 will be considered par here.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option when you are early in the tournament and not aware of the safe target in the conditions available. Batsmen are more confident chasing the total in the T20 matches off late.

Winning Prediction

Both teams played well in their opening encounter but finished on the losing side due to their inability to hold onto the crunch moments. Patriots team has a pace heavy bowling unit and lacks firepower in batting department barring their big-hitting openers. Warriors have a strong batting line-up with two quality spinners. Lack of experienced pacer is their only weakness on paper, and we expect them to win this contest.

We predict Guyana Amazon Warriors to secure their first points of the season in this match!
