GAW vs SLK Match Preview

Guyana Amazon Warriors will play host to the team of St Lucia Kings in a game to be played at Providence Stadium in Guyana tomorrow. The home team of the Warriors is yet to be defeated in the competition. They have succeeded in winning six games out of seven while one match ended with no result. Saim Ayub has been the top run-getter for this outfit and he has got them quickly. He has been mainly responsible for providing blistering starts to their teams consistently. The highest wicket-taker for the Warriors in the competition has been Gudakesh Motie. He has picked up 10 victims from 7 games so far. 

Guyana Amazon Warriors succeeded in winning their last game of the competition against Jamaica Tallawahs. This was the 25th game of the league stages of the tournament and was played in Providence. Batting first in this match, Jamaica Tallawahs scored a reasonable total of 152 runs for the loss of 5 wickets. Guyana Amazon Warriors succeeded in chasing down this target in 18.3 overs for the loss of 3 wickets. They were never in too much trouble during the chase. The top run-getter for Guyana was Saim Ayub who hit 85 runs from just 53 balls.

Saint Lucia Kings in the meantime had to endure a big blow when their skipper Faf du Plessis was forced to return home because of an injury. Sikandar Raza has picked up his mantle as the skipper and Colin Munro has been called to replace Faf Du Plessis. This New Zealand batsman is the highest run scorer in the competition history. He has succeeded in playing a couple of good innings already and has proved to be a worthy replacement. The bowling department of Saint Lucia Kings is in the hands of Alzarri Joseph and Roston Chase. They have both picked up 9 wickets each in the competition.

St Lucia Kings played their last game of the competition against Trinbago Knight Riders. This was the 24th match of the competition and was played in Tarouba on 10th September. Batting first, St Lucia Kings managed to put together 167 runs for the loss of 3 wickets. The Trinbago Knight Riders chased this decent score down easily in 18.5 overs for the loss of 3 wickets. Mark Deyal was adjudged Player of the Match for his contribution of 57 runs from 45 balls. The St Lucia Kings import Colin Munro was the leading run-getter with a super 71 from 51 balls.

Pitch Report

This game is being played at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. This wicket is usually a slow surface and there is a lot of help on offer for the spinners. Therefore, bowling first on the track might be a better idea. Due to the slow nature of the track, chasing a target is going to be pretty difficult.
