Jamaica Tallwahs have won only a single match out of the five that they have played so far in the tournament. They are placed at the bottom of the points table. On the other hand, Guyana Amazon Warriors are atop the table with eight points from four matches. The Warriors come into this game as the overwhelming favorites.
41% of scattered thunderstorms with the temperature ranging around 29 degrees Celsius is expected during the course of this encounter.
The tracks on offer in the CPL have been extensively batting-friendly and hence something of the similar sort could be expected this time around.
Predicted Playing XI:
Chris Gayle and Chadwick Walton will have to bear the major responsibilities of the batting order whereas Jamaine Blackwood and Jade Dernbach would have to deliver some striking performances for the team to come back in the groove.
Chris Gayle (C), Glenn Phillips (WK), Chadwick Walton, George Worker, Jermaine Blackwood, Javelle Glen, Ramaal Lewis, Derval Green, Jade Dernbach, Zahir Khan, Oshane Thomas
Guyana Amazon Warriors:
Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran are the two pillars of the middle-order along with Shoaib Malik who has to lead the side as well. Sherfane Rutherford, Keemo Paul and Imran Tahir are the other key members of the XI.
Chandrapaul Hemraj, Brandon King, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (WK), Sherfane Rutherford, Shoaib Malik (C), Chris Green, Keemo Paul, Romario Shepherd, Qais Ahmad, Imran Tahir
Nicholas Pooran and Chadwick Walton can contribute a considerable number of points if they get going and so can Chris Gayle. Keemo Paul would be an advisable pick from the all-rounders category.
