Caribbean Premier League 2020: Guyana Amazon Warriors vs. Jamaica Tallawahs, Match no. 12

Andre Russell (JT) – Will he take off?

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Both teams competing in this match lost their last encounter with the Tallawahs losing against the same opponent Warriors.  Guyana Amazon Warriors rely heavily on their spin bowling and their batting is very inconsistent so far. Jamaica Tallawahs have a well-balanced batting attack with many big-hitters and good spin attack. Both teams lack quality pacers in their playing XI. We expect Guyana Amazon Warriors to win this match owing to their good overall team balance and experienced spin contingent. 

Score Prediction: We expect average scores in the range of 160-180 runs in this match as the match will take place in a new fresh track in Queen`s Park Oval. The ball is expected to come onto the bat nicely. 

Toss Prediction: We expect both teams to field first as they can take advantage of the bounce and carry in the fresh wicket early on and chasing will be safe option considering the new pitch in play.

JAMAICA TALLAWAHS: Rovman Powell (C), Asif Ali, Glenn Philips, Chadwick Walton, Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Fidel Edwards, Sandeep Lamichchame, Mujeeb Ur Rehman, Oshane Thomas, Nkurumah Bonner

GUYANA AMAZON WARRIORS

  1. Nicholas Pooran – Nicholas Pooran returned to form with a valiant 69 runs off 49 balls with 7 boundaries and a six. He will be vital member in the middle order for the team moving forward. 
  2. Chris Green – Chris Green has 4 wickets at an economy rate of just 5.8 RPO in the last three matches bowling in the powerplay.  His batting skills might well be needed in this encounter to score some vital runs down the order. 
  3. Imran Tahir – Imran Tahir was the pick of the bowlers with spell of 4-0-22-3 in the last match. He has given runs at less than 6 RPO and picked up crucial wickets in the last 3 matches in a row.
