Caribbean Premier League 2020: Guyana Amazon Warriors vs. St. Lucia Zouks, Match no. 10

Chris Green (GAW) – Battle of spinners on card

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Guyana Amazon Warriors will be high on confidence after defending a meager target of just 118 runs. St. Lucia Zouks too won their last match comfortably by 10 runs. Warriors have a strong spin attack (Chris Green, Imran Tahir, & Ashmed Nedd) comparing to Zouks (Mohammed Nabi & Roston Chase) which might prove to be the difference in this track. We predict Guyana Amazon Warriors to win this contest. 

Score Prediction: We expect average scores in the range of 120-140 runs in this match. The pitch is expected to slow down considerably as this the second match of the day and it will be nightmare to face quality spinners on this track. 

Toss Prediction: We expect both teams to bat first as batting becomes very difficult in the second innings.  But, if rain threat looms teams might opt to bats second as it is a safe option considering DLS method. 

Predicted Playing XI

ST. LUCIA ZOUKS: Rahkeem Cornwall, Andre Fletcher (wk), Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Daren Sammy (c), Roston Chase, Mark Deyal, Scott Kuggeleijn, Kesrick Williams, Obed McCoy, Zakir Khan

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

Players to Bet on

GUYANA AMAZON WARRIORS

  1. Brandon King – Brandon King gave a good start scoring 29 runs off 19 balls with 3 boundaries and 2 sixes. He shared a 56-run opening partnership which proved to be difference in the end. 
  2. Chris Green – Green opened the bowling attack and took 2 wickets inside the first 3 overs to derail the opposition batting line-up. He ended with bowling figures of 3-1-10-2 and he attacked the opposition with his three spinners to help his team with the match easily. 
  3. Imran Tahir – Imran Tahir gave just 2 runs off his 2 overs in the batting powerplay last night. He ended with figures of 4-1-26-1 due to Russell`s late assault of 23 runs off his last 2 overs. 

ST. LUCIA ZOUKS

  1. Mohammed Nabi – Nabi has been contributing effectively with his batting, bowling, and fielding for Zouks. He was awarded Man of the Match for his 35 runs (19 balls) and bowling figures of 4-0-17-1 in the last match.     
  2. Roston Chase – Roston Chase is one of the underrated players who has contributed effectively with bat and ball. After a fifty in the first match, he has taken 5 wickets in the next two matches at an economy rate of just over 3 RPO.  
  3. Scott Kuggleijn – Kuggleijn picked up 4 wickets in the last match to wipe out the lower middle order. He is the current leading wicket-taker of CPL 2020 with 7 wickets in 3 matches.
