Partly cloudy weather with around 16% chances of rain and the temperature ranging around 28 degrees Celsius is expected during the course of the encounter.
The track has been conducive to the batsmen in recent times but numerous pitches have shown the tendency of slowing down as this tournament has progressed in the last few days.
Predicted Playing XI:
Trinbago Knight Riders:
Colin Munro along with Kieron Pollard and Lendl Simmons will form the core of the batting order whereas Jimmy Neesham will be banked upon to provide the quick acceleration of runs later on. Chris Jordan is expected to make his debut for the Knight Riders tonight.
Sunil Narine, Lendl Simmons, Colin Munro, Kieron Pollard (C), Denesh Ramdin (WK), Darren Bravo, Jimmy Neesham, Seekuge Prasanna, Chris Jordan, Khary Pierre, Anderson Phillip
Guyana Amazon Warriors:
Shoaib Malik and Nicholas Pooran add stability to the batting in the middle order whereas the likes of Sherfane Rutherford and Chanderpaul Hemraj add various other dimensions to the lineup as well. Imran Tahir and Ben Laughlin would be the key bowlers for the team.
Brandon King, Chanderpaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Shoaib Malik (C), Nicholas Pooran (WK), Sherfane Rutherford, Chris Green, Odean Smith, Imran Tahir, Ben Laughlin, Romario Shepherd
Colin Munro should be a must-pick considering his prowess in this format of the game. Furthermore, the likes of Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer and Sunil Narine could be valuable additions to the Dream XI side.
