Caribbean Premier League 2020: Guyana Amazon Warriors vs. Jamaica Tallawahs, Match no. 8

Keemo Paul (GAW) – A Masked menace

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Guyana Amazon Warriors registered their first win this season against the Patriots last night. Jamaica Tallawahs come into this match with a loss in their previous encounter. Both teams have an inconsistent middle order but the form of Shimron Hetmyer gives Warriors an advantage. The absence of specialist bowlers might hurt Tallawahs in the middle order like the last match. We expect Guyana Amazon Warriors to win this match. 

Score Prediction: We expect average scores in the range of 140-150 runs in this match and anything above 160 will be tough to chase on this track. The track has been subjected to wear and tear due to its used nature and spinners might enjoy bowling here.  

Toss Prediction: With rain threat looming and DLS favoring the chasing team, we expect both teams to field first if they win the toss.

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

GUYANA AMAZON WARRIORS: Brandon King, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Ross Taylor, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Sherfane Rutherford, Keemo Paul, Chris Green (c), Romario Shepherd, Naveen-ul-Haq, Imran Tahir
