JT vs GAW Match Preview

The Jamaica Tallwahs team is being led by Brandon King in this competition. They managed to defeat St Kitts and Nevis Patriots by a margin of 8 wickets in their last encounter. As a result of this win, they have now reached the top of the points table. The Jamaican batters have done a good job in all their matches and the team management will be looking to take their form ahead to extend the gap between them and the other teams. The skipper Brandon King is in good nick and will be keen to provide a great start to the team together with Kirk McKenzie.

Jamaicans have a powerful middle order. They will be expecting some useful contributions from batters such as Amir Jangoo, Raymon Reifer, and Sharmarh Brooks in this encounter. This batting order is further bolstered by the presence of Imad Wasim, Chris Green, and Fabien Allen in the lower middle order. Mohammad Amir bowled well in the last contest and he will be on the lookout for early victims while sharing the new balls with another fellow quickie Chris Green. Salman Irshad was the most successful bowler for Jamaica in their last encounter with 4 wickets. Imad Wasim, Raymon Reifer, Imad Wasim, and Nicholson Gordon add variety to the bowling attack.

The Guyana Amazon Warriors also played their last encounter against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. They won the game handsomely with a huge margin of 65 runs. Warriors are being led by Imran Tahir in this competition and they have some in-form batters in their ranks together with a good spin bowling attack. Tahir will be well aware of the strengths and weaknesses of their opponents and a strong showing is expected from his team members that will allow the team to move up the points table.

Salim Ayub did a good job for Guyana in their last matchup. He will again try and build a partnership with Chanderpaul Hemraj near the top of the order. Shai Hope also appeared to be in good touch and will be expecting bigger partnerships with Shimron Hetmyer and Azam Khan. Other big hitters such as Keemo Paul, Romario Shepherd, and Dwaine Pretorius add extra dimensions to this batting order. The bowling attack looked good in their last encounter but, this opposition will be a stiffer challenge for them.

Dream11 Prediction

Both these teams are doing well in the competition so far and their confidence level will be high. Jamaica Tallawahs has a powerful batting lineup but they do not have sufficient bowling to knock over their opponents. They will have to do a good job with the ball to restrict Guyana in this contest. Guyana Amazon Warriors on the other hand have excellent depth in their bowling attack and they also have a useful batting order. This means the Guyana team has a slight edge in the match. We will bet with Guyana to win the match.
