GAW vs JT Match Preview

The Guyana Amazon Warriors are in brilliant form this season. They are yet to face a defeat and have won 5 matches, while 1 match was abandoned due to rain. They are currently second on the points table and have already made it through to the next stage.

The batting has been one of the highlights of the Amazon Warriors’ performance so far. Saim Ayub and Shai Hope are in prime form and have scored half-centuries in consecutive matches. Shimron Hetmeyer and Keemo Paul have been striking the ball well and will look to provide a good finish with the bat. However, Azam Khan hasn’t been able to deliver the goods.

Gudakesh Motie is quite impressive with his left-arm spin and is the leading wicket-taker for the team. He has received decent support from Imran Tahir and Junior Sinclair. The seamers too have done an excellent job. Romario Shepherd, Odean Smith, and Dwaine Pretorius have picked up 20 wickets between them.

Jamaica Tallawahs are the defending champions for this season but they have failed to carry their form from the last season. They have lost each of their last 4 matches and are currently 5th on the points table, trailing the top 4 teams by 2 points.

They have 3 matches in hand, including this one and a win here will help them remain in the race for the play-offs.

Brandon King was the top-scorer of the tournament last season and has done well here to score 194 runs. However, he has received little support from the other top-order batsmen including Amir Jangoo and Jermaine Blackwood. Shamarh Brooks has got a couple of good starts but will need to show more consistency.

Imad Wasim has put up an excellent all-round performance and has scored 196 runs while also picking up 8 wickets. He has received good support from Chris Green, who has 7 against his name.

Mohammad Amir and Salman Irshad make up for a potent new-ball attack and have picked up 9 wickets each. 


Weather Report

It has been raining in Georgetown over the weekend. However, the weather should ease out a bit by Wednesday. We can expect some cloud cover and the weather will be warm and humid. There is no forecast of rain as of now and we should get a full game. 


Pitch Report

This is the first match of the season to be played on this ground and we will have a fresh pitch. The last season saw 70% of the matches being won by teams batting first. The pitch does slow down a bit in the second innings and the spinners will be able to extract some turn. The average first-inning score last season was around 155, which is a par score. 


Notable stats

Shai Hope’s excellent batting

Shai Hope has batted well for the Amazon Warriors this season. He has scored 193 runs in 5 innings, including 3 half-centuries, and has a strike rate of 137.8,
