Match Preview

This the last league game of the CPL2019 season and we are still not sure about the position of the teams in the playoffs. Both teams Guyana Amazon Warriors and Trinbago Knight Riders have qualified for the playoffs. Trinbago Knight Riders will need to win this match so that they can have 2 chances to enter the finals. Guyana, on the other hand, are the table toppers and have a chance to pick their opponents in the Qualifier game. This is the first time a team has won 9 matches in the league stages in CPL and GAW will look to make it a perfect 10 before the qualifiers. Barbados Tridents will have a close look at this match as they will end up in the No. 2 position in the points table if Trinbago Knight riders lose the match.

Teams Preview

Guyana Amazon Warriors Preview

Warriors team is on a roll and are looking unbeatable now with 9 victories on a trot. Skipper Shoaib Malik scored 76 runs in the last match to take them to a comfortable total of 156 runs. Their top order of Chanderpaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, and Brandon King are amongst the runs and are performing when the team requires them the most. Their middle order is hugely untested due to the excellent form of the top order.

Bowling has been the biggest strength this season with a good combination of spinners and seamers. Spinners Imran Tahir and Chris Green lead the wickets charts with 13 wickets each. Pacers Romario Shepherd and Keemo Paul have also contributed with 9 & 10 wickets each this season. They went with a spin dominant attack in the last match with the likes of Tahir, Green, Hemraj, and Qais Ahmed. Pacer Keemo Paul bowled just one over in the entire match.

Key Players:
Brandon King – King has scored 288 runs at a strike rate of 141 this season and his consistent performance at the top sets the tone of their innings. He will look to continue his good form in the business end of the tournament too.
Imran Tahir – Imran Tahir is one of the most sought bowlers in T20 cricket nowadays. He has taken 13 wickets in just 6 matches at an economy rate of 5.5 RPO. He has formed a superb partnership with Chris Green in the bowling department. 

Guyana Amazon Warriors Predicted Playing XI:

Shoaib Malik (c), Imran Tahir, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Brandon King, Chris Green, Keemo Paul, Qais Ahmed, Romario Shepherd, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Sherfane Rutherford

Trinbago Knight Riders Preview

Trinbago Knight Riders must win this match so they could finish in the second spot in the points table. After four wins in four matches, they have lost their way with 4 losses in the next 5 matches and an abandoned game. Lendl Simmons is on fire this season with 348 runs at a strike rate of 165. Skipper Kieron Pollard has contributed with quick runs down the order consistently. Colin Munro, Denesh Ramdin, and Darren Bravo are looking in good form and will look to contribute in this important match.

Bowling has been their Achilles heel this season with bowlers leaking too many runs. James Neesham is the highest wicket-taker with 8 wickets but is giving away runs at an economy of over 11 RPO. Khary Pierre, Chris Jordan, and Mark Deyal will have to play a big role in their bowling attack. Sunil Narine`s absence due to injury is affecting their bowling attack big time.


Key Players:
Kieron Pollard – Pollard has scored 264 runs at a strike rate of 160 while batting down the order this season.  He has also contributed with the ball with 6 wickets so far. The Skipper must continue his good all-round performance and lead form front in this match. 
Khary Pierre – Pierre has taken 7 wickets at an economy of 7 RPO this season bowling most of his overs in the powerplay. He will enjoy bowling in this pitch which is known to aid spinners big time. 

Trinbago Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Denesh Ramdin (wk), Lendl Simmons, Kieron Pollard (c), Darren Bravo, Chris Jordan, Colin Munro, James Neesham, Javon Searles, Mark Deyal, Ali Khan, Khary Pierre

Venue Details

Guyana pitch is aiding the spinners with vicious turn and bounce, and we expect the pitch to continue the same way in this match too. The average score in this pitch will be around 140 runs.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first have won 3 out of 4 matches played here. The pitch does a little more as the match progresses and spinners come into the equation as the pitch wears in the second innings

Winning Prediction

Warriors have an excellent bowling and batting attack that has performed well in all conditions this season. Knight riders have lost their way after the first half and are looking for a win before entering the playoff stages.

We expect Guyana Amazon Warriors to win this match and make it a record breaking 10 out of 10!
