Caribbean Premier League 2020: Guyana Amazon Warriors vs. St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots, Match no. 4

Imran Tahir & Chris Green (GAZ) – Spin-twins in action

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Guyana Amazon Warriors have a slightly stronger batting line-up compared to St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots especially in the middle-order.  Patriots have a strong pace bowling department but lack quality spinner except for Ish Sodhi. We predict Guyana Amazon Warriors to come out victorious in this match. 

Score Prediction: The pitch seems to be little sluggish and slow and we can expect the slower bowlers to have an upper hand in this contest. The average scores will be in the range of 140-160 runs and any score above 170 will be tough to chase.  

Toss Prediction: Chasing is the safe option as no target is safe in t20s nowadays. But we don’t expect a high scoring match in the range of 180-200 runs at this venue now.

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

Players to Bet on

GUYANA AMAZON WARRIORS

  1. Shimron Hetmyer – Hetmyer batted throughout the innings scoring 63 runs off 44 balls. He will look to continue his good form in this match also. Lookout for another big score from him with his usual fireworks this time.  
  2. Imran Tahir – Imran Tahir picked up 2 wickets but leaked 40 runs in his 4 overs last night. He will enjoy bowling on this pitch which is more suited for spinners and the opposition lack big-hitters in their middle order.
  3. Keemo Paul – Paul is exciting all-rounder who can perform with both bat and ball. He had a decent outing last night with 15 runs and a wicket at an economy of just 7 RPO. 

ST. KITTS AND NEVIS PATRIOTS 

  1. Chris Lynn – The Aussie six-hitting machine looked good for his 17-ball 19 runs but it will be challenge for him to bat on this slow track, but we expect him to come good. 
  2. Sheldon Cottrell – Cottrell took 2 wickets very early and derailed the opposition. He will look to pick quick wickets in this match too and comes off from a good spell of 4-0-16-2 last night. 
  3. Ben Dunk – Ben Dunk scored 34 runs off just 21 balls to resurrect the team from slow run rate but was dismissed at the wrong moment. He will look to put a good performance and stay till the end in this match.
