SLS VS GAW MATCH PREDICTION & ANALYSIS
This next match of the Caribbean Premier League is going to be played between the St. Lucia Zouks and the Guyana Amazon Warriors. They are right next to each other in the table standings and perhaps two of the most exciting teams to follow in CPL T20 2020. The last time these two teams met, the Zouks managed to get the better of the Warriors by ten runs.
Since then, both teams have changed a bit in their first choice eleven as well as the form of some of their best players. Will the Zouks be able to make it two in two against the Guyana Amazon Warriors?
St. Lucia Zouks vs Guyana Amazon Warriors CPL 2020 is going to be played at the Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba Trinidad on the 2nd of September 2020.
ST LUCIA ZOUKS
With five wins out of seven matches so far, it is safe to say that the St. Lucia Zouks have been the team of the CPL this season. They came in with a lot of their best players available and one of the weakest squads on paper. A number of their players have stepped up and ensured that they are going to be a part of the semi-finals no matter what happens from here on in.
The previous match that the Zouks played is a prime example of their never say die spirit. Batting first, the Zouks were bowled out for 92 against the defending champions. With the Tridents at 32 for no loss, no one would have given the Zouks a chance but they kept on plugging away and instigated one of the great collapses in CPL history.
The Barbados Tridents crumbled to 89 all-out as Kesrick Williams, Javelle Glenn, Roston Chase, and Mohammad Nabi all combined to bow brilliantly. The best part? Javelle Glenn has never bowled before in a first-class T20 match in his life!
We expect the Zouks to continue to bring their spin heavy side to this contest and try to get the batter of a strong Warriors outfit.
The batting is a concern. Rakheem Cornwall has been unable to reprise the firm he shown in CPL 2019 and a bit too seems to be dependent on Mohammad Nabi. If the pitch is good for batting, this weakness might cost them the match.
GUYANA AMAZON WARRIORS
This is going to be the second match that the Guyana Amazon Warriors play in two days. The Warriors have three wins from seven matches and would have played one more by the time this one comes around. Unlike the St. Lucia Zouks, the Guyana Amazon Warriors still have some work to do before they lock in their place in the CPL 2020 semi-finals.
These next few matches are going to be crucial and we are sure they are happy to see some of their senior players like Nicholas Pooran hit form.
A sensation inning by Pooran where he scored 10 not out from just 45 deliveries was the reason why they won their match against the Patriots with ease. Pooran and Taylor form a nice partnership to rescue the Warriors who were 25 for three chasing 151 at one point.
This season has been more difficult than what the Guyana Amazon Warriors have been used to. Brandon King has not been in the runs and the Shimron Hetmyer seems to be cooling off a bit as well. The Warriors need their batting to start coming into its own now that the business end of the CPL is approaching.
Among the bowling, Imran Tahir has not been at his best this season either. He seems rusty and os offering up way too many freebies for a bowler of his caliber. Chris Green is back with a remodeled action that is affecting his bowling speed and the fast bowling department is pretty bare as well.
The Guyana Amazon Warriors are a much more beatable team this season especially now that they do not have home advantage anymore.
SLS VS GAW TOSS PREDICTION
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first as that is when the conditions seem to be the best for batting.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
There is rain in Tarouba but the forecast improves significantly for the second half of the day. This is why we are hopeful that a full uninterrupted match will be played out between these two. The conditions are going to be helpful for the spinners, as they have been throughout, but we can hope for a better batting surface now that the groundsmen will have had some time to work on the pitches.
SLS VS GAW BETTING TIPS
We think this could be a close match but one that the Guyana Amazon Warriors end up winning. The return to form for Nicholas Pooran is a big plus especially because he is so good against spin. A stronger batting lineup and a bowling lineup that is at least as good as the Zouks gives the Warriors an edge.
Bet on the Guyana Amazon Warriors to win.
