BR vs GAW Match Preview

The Guyana Amazon Warriors is being led by Imran Tahir this year. They are comfortably sitting on top of the points tally. Another win in this game will pretty much guarantee a place for them in the knockout stages of the competition. Guyana did a great job against Trinbago Knight Riders in their last match and won the game by six wickets. They are yet to be beaten in the competition and Tahir will expect his teammates to keep the momentum going. Saim Ayub did a great job in the last contest.

Other batters such as Romario Shepherd, Dwaine Pretorius, Keemo Paul, and Shimron Hetmyer can all hit the ball a long way. Their teammates will be expecting another great show from these batters. Guyana bowlers did a fair job in their last match. However, the team will be expecting better spells with the new ball from Romario Shepherd and Dwaine Pretorius. Other bowlers that have troubled the batters consistently are Imran Tahir and Gudakesh Motie. They have a lot of variety in their attack and will have a significant role to play in the game.

The Barbados team is struggling for consistency. They lost their last match against Trinbago Knight Riders by 42 runs. They will have to win this contest to keep their hopes of reaching the next round alive. The skipper will be expecting the experienced players to deliver the goods against this strong opposition. Kyle Mayers and Rahkeem Cornwall have both scored runs in their last couple of games. This pair will once again try to provide a great start. The Barbados batting line-up has a lot of meat in their middle order.

Royals will expect significant contributions from Jason Holder, Laurie Evans, Nyeem Young, Roelof van der Merwe, and Alick Athanaze who add good depth to their batting order. Jason Holder and Kyle Mayers both gave away a lot of runs in their last game. This pair will need to bowl tight spells in this game with the new ball. Qais Ahmed is the only consistent bowler in this team. He will be keen to do a good job in the middle overs with Cornwall and Obed McCoy who add variety to this bowling attack.

Weather Report

It is expected that the skies on September 10 will remain cloudy over Trinidad.

Pitch Report

The pitch on offer at the ground will be tough for the stroke players. It is not going to be easy to adjust to the speed and bounce from the track. All bowlers will find help from the track. Any team batting first in the contest will have to put together over 180 runs on the board to feel safe. The Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba, Trinidad is a bowler-friendly surface. The speedsters can do well on this track as the slow nature of the track makes shot-making difficult for the batters. Spinners have done a good job on this track as the ball can turn sharply after pitching.
