GAW vs SNP Match Preview

The Guyana Amazon Warriors outfit played their last encounter against Jamaica Tallawahs on the 27th of August. This was the 11th game of the CPL and it was played against Jamaica Tallawahs. The Amazon Warriors managed to win it by a margin of 34 runs. Batting first, the Guyana outfit raised a big score of 210 runs for the loss of 7 wickets. Although Jamaica Tallawahs made a game effort to reach this target, they were never in contention for a win. Romario Shepherd from Guyana was adjudged player of the match for his all-round performance.

Surprisingly the Amazon innings did not get off to a good start. They were quickly reduced to 22 for 3 in 3.4 overs. But first Shai Hope and later Keemo Paul and Shimron Hetmyer took the team score to a new height. Hetmyer scored 60 runs from 45 balls with 4 sixes and 3 fours while Keemo Paul hit 56 from 29 balls with as many as 7 sixes and just a single boundary. Although Imad Wasim and Fabian Allen made a game effort to win the game for Jamaica, they were never really close enough to win the match. The pick of the bowlers for Guyana was Romario Shepherd who picked up 3 wickets for 7 runs from his 3 overs.

The St Kitts and Nevis Patriots team played its last encounter against Trinbago Knight Riders. This was the 12th game of the competition and it was played in Basseterre. The STKNP team batted first and raised a reasonable total of 178 runs for the loss of 5 wickets. The Trinbago Knight Riders chased this target easily for the loss of 4 wickets from 17.1 overs. Trinbago registered a win by a margin of 6 wickets and with 17 balls to spare. Nicholas Pooran was adjudged player of the match for his 61 from 32 balls.

Arguably the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots batters did a decent job with the bat scoring 178 runs from their 20 overs. Almost all the batters from the top and middle order contributed to the team cause. But it was the newly appointed skipper Sherfane Rutherford who provided real impetus to the STKNP innings by scoring 62 runs from 38 balls with 5 sixes and 4 fours. He was well supported by Corbin Bosch who put together 30 runs from 21 balls. Corbin Bosch also did well with the ball picking up 3 wickets for 22 runs from his 3 overs. But it was not going to be sufficient.

Pitch Report

The wicket on offer at the Kensington Oval in Barbados is a great one for batting. It will offer some pace and bounce to the batters. The carry bowlers will get will also mean that batters can play through the line of the ball. The fast bowlers are unlikely to get any other assistance from the track but spinners can be useful, especially in the second innings. Keep in mind that this is a high-scoring ground and the team batting first will look to score in the excess of 180 runs or more from the track to remain ahead of the competition.

Dream11 Prediction

We are yet to observe any signs of a fightback from the SKTNP team as they have a completely lackluster bowling attack and a fragile batting order to contend with. The Guyanese team on the other hand will be going into this game with back-to-back victories where their bowling and batting both fired. They have a dependable bowling attack and a long batting order. They will have the upper hand going into this game and will be strong favorites to win the encounter. We will bet with Guyana Amazon Warriors to win this contest.
