We are heading into the midpoint of the Caribbean Premier League 2021 and Saint Lucia Kings have a big challenge on their hands. They are sitting at the bottom of the points table after their loss against the Trinbago Knight Riders. They need to win this game to improve their prospects. Guyana Amazon Warriors on the other hand come here with a thrilling win against the Knight Riders.
The Saint Lucia Kings have by far looked the weakest side in the tournament with their batsmen unable to deliver in most of the games. They will have to work on this aspect of the game to avoid a loss here which will make it tough for them for the rest of the tournament. Guyana Amazon Warriors would aim to use their momentum and improve their standing with a win here.
Faf du Plessis’ side hasn’t performed to its best levels so far in the tournament. They have won only once in the three games they have played and come here after a poor show against the Trinbago Knight Riders where they lost by 27 runs. Their batsmen are struggling, and the side would look for a better show from them in this important game.
Andre Fletcher played brilliantly in the last game but there was no support for him at the other end. He will have to set up a good partnership with Rahkeem Cornwall. Faf du Plessis is short on form and must do well with Roston Chase and Mark Deyal in the middle order. Runs would also be expected from the bat of Samit Patel and Tim David down the order who have good abilities with the bat.
Alzarri Joseph did well in the last game and the side would like to see early strikes from him and Wahab Riaz in this game. Roston Chase also comes here after a good show and shall aim to bowl tight spells with Kesrick Williams who picked 4 wickets in the previous game. Keemo Paul, Deyal and Samit Patel add good depth to this attack.

After two consecutive defeats Nicholas Pooran’s side made a strong comeback in the last game against the Trinbago Knight Riders. It was the most exciting game of the tournament so far which the Warriors won in the Super Over. This win against the defending champions would add to their confidence and Pooran would look for a win here and move up on the points table.
They would need a good start at the top from Mohammad Hafeez and Chandrapaul Hemraj as both these players haven’t looked at their best so far. In the middle order Shimron Hetmyer is looking good and quick runs would be expected from his bat along with Odean Smith and Shoaib Malik. Pooran and Brandon King down the order add good firepower to the batting.
Naveen-ul-Haq has been in poor form and the side would need him to deliver the goods here with Romario Shephard who won the last game with his excellent bowling. Imran Tahir has looked good, and the side would like to see him continue bowling tight spells. Smith and Ashmead Need would be expected to bowl tight lines here.

It is expected to be warm and humid at St Kitts on September 02 and we have seen the wicket slow down after so many games that have been played here. Batsmen have to adjust to the conditions, and they can score runs once they have got their eyes set in. The side batting first in this game would like to put up a target of 170 or more on the board.
Warner Park, St Kitts is a good venue for the batsmen as the small size of the ground and the fast outfield has allowed them to score lots of runs here in the past. There isn’t much there on this surface for the fast bowlers. Spinners have enjoyed a better record at this venue as the odd ball can stop and surprise the batsmen.
In the 11 games that have been played so far, the side chasing the score has managed only four wins. Batting conditions have been difficult as the game has progressed. Both the skippers would have this in their mind at the toss and likely to opt for batting first in this game.
Saint Lucia Kings would be under extreme pressure as one more loss can make it difficult for them to make it to the knockout stage of the tournament. The side would need to improve its performance with the ball and the bat in this game. Guyana Amazon Warriors have a very powerful batting line-up and shall be high on confidence after their win against the Knight Riders and shall start favorites to win in this game.
